PROTECT SCHOOL ASSETS FROM THEFT OR LOSS WITH AUTOMATED SUPPLY CHAIN MANAGEMENT
Schools and campuses are relatively open environments with dynamic flows of people and assets — which may include school-issued computers and textbooks, audiovisual equipment, sports equipment, science and language lab equipment, musical instruments, specialized gear for special needs students and vehicles. Shared assets need to be in the right place at the right time to ensure effective asset management and to avoid disruptions while maintaining service for the student/faculty population. Further, schools and school systems are challenged to protect assets from theft and loss which has become an ongoing issue for many institutions. Manual tracking and audits impose time penalties on teachers, administrators and staff.
For schools and school systems using Apptricity, those days are over. Fully integrated Asset Management solutions track equipment and goods automatically, 24/7, from procurement to disposal.
Apptricity’s Asset Management solution helps schools and systems run more efficiently, reduce costs, and work better for teachers, administrators, and students. Apptricity users range from public school systems to higher institutions like Texas A&M University.
A typical Apptricity Asset solution, for schools, consists of radio frequency identification (RFID) tags and readers integrated with Apptricity asset tracking software, in turn integrated with the school’s information technology (IT) systems and databases. Apptricity readily integrates with any existing commercial software the school may be using.
LEVERAGE GPS TRACKING AND MILITARY GRADE SECURITY TO PROTECT AND LOCK DOWN ASSETS
In addition, Apptricity Professional Services can typically get a complete, fully integrated and customized system up and running at one or multiple schools or campuses in 90 days or less — speed and simplicity being two of our great advantages. Our user interfaces are simple, too. Ease of use encourages early massive adoption of the system.
Your Apptricity solution can pinpoint any tracked asset to the specific classroom or other space where it currently resides. With suitably equipped entryways, staff will know instantly if any equipment “walks” out the door. Apptricity provides GPS map views based on your buildings’ floor plans, overviews of location and status, and drill-down details on each tracked asset, including warranties and maintenance schedules.
Apptricity ensures high security: the U.S. Army and other military branches rely on us to track assets for logistics operations in multiple theaters around the world. No one provides our armed forces with more asset-tracking logistical support than Apptricity. We apply the same technologies and expertise to your school, campus, or entire school systems.
In addition to the advantages mentioned so far, your Apptricity Asset solution enables you to manage inventory much more effectively, eliminating short supply and reducing oversupply — another cost saver. Your Apptricity solution comes with comprehensive built-in reporting tools including many pre-configured reports. These along with ad-hoc reporting can help translate asset visibility into actionable information, by revealing patterns of use that can lead to improved decision making in budget-constrained school districts. The same tools can also help administrators show voters that the district is efficiently allocating taxpayer funds.
