We would like to use FileWave to manage our Chromebooks. I have not found anything that says it is compatible with the Chrome OS. Will we be able to utilize FileWave?

Sorry for the late answer, we've been busy with FileWave 11 release these days.

FileWave does not support ChromeBooks yet - we can manage iOS devices, Windows PC, Mac and Android devices.
Just curious, what would be the most important feature:
- inventory ?
- tracking ?
- management ?

Regarding Management - Google has a different approach than Apple ; while Apple has a (kind of) public API for managing iOS devices and provides OS X server more as a technical example of how it works than a full, complete MDM solution, Google already provides nearly everything via their Management Console (read www.google.com/intl/en/chrome/business/d...agement-console.html for business for instance) and does rely on 3rd party MDM vendors like Apple does with us.

Are there some limitations in Google Management Console, or is it because you would like to have one unique place to manage devices ?
