The Asset Discovery Service enabled us to get the solution installed and fully up and running within a couple of weeks. It would have taken us months to have done this."

Whether you are a small primary or a 30-school District or MAT, we will help you implement the system and tailor how we do this around the resources and budget you have. The biggest challenge when implementing an IT & Inventory management system is the task of adding the physical equipment as well as the correct purchasing data and barcode.
Our services can be scaled to suit your specific requirements. We can simply train your staff. Alternatively we can project manage your staff whilst they perform the implementation, or we can conduct the full implementation service for you.
Our trainers and auditors are employees, all with extensive experience working in education and are DBS checked. Client testimonials will tell you better than we can that our people are considered professional and polite individuals who efficiently get on with the task without causing interruption to the school day.
Our pre-consultancy visits are designed to identity all the necessary information needed for implementation because we want to ensure you get the most out of the system. Simply creating an asset register will not put you into a position where you are ‘insurance claim’ ready. Our system, developed alongside insurers, has built-in features that keep you compliant, result in a faster settlement and get your school operational quickly.
Does your school have thousands of assets but no time or resources? It may seem daunting, but don’t worry – just give us a call and we’ll find a service to suit your needs. Our experienced auditors go the extra mile by providing asset and room values, so you end up with a total asset estate valuation for insurance purposes.
We also offer online training, which is a great help when you need to induct new staff, or you just require a 20-minute refresher on a certain aspect, such as reporting or a new software feature. You are busy and your time is precious, so we can provide this at a time that works best for you.
Alternatively, we can perform the training onsite. Your team will learn:
We will agree a total valuation for each room, which includes any non-recorded assets – in other words, we advise you on what 'everything else' in that room is worth. This is then added to the contents calculator, so you get a total asset estate valuation for insurance purposes.
Part of our offering includes software asset management. It’s an unfortunate fact that software that is purchased or subscribed to can be easily overlooked and forgotten. In some cases, you may end up purchasing multiple software platforms which essentially offer you the same functionality.
By adding all of your existing software titles that incur a cost to the software license manager module, together with full licensing details, you will be able to effectively track these valuable assets and refer to this inventory when researching new software to purchase. We also set up usage metering so you can ensure you are getting value from your software expenditure and investment. In the constantly evolving landscape of sophisticated software offerings available, Parago offers you a way to effectively manage all of your current and future software assets.
