Five of Parago’s asset auditors managed to complete what seemed a daunting task of implementing the Academy Asset Manager system across all seven academies of the ‘Creative Education Learning Trust’ in just eight days! This included adding and valuing all assets above an agreed value, and room values for non specified assets to leave a total estate valuation. With such a restricted time frame and during the school term, their experience would be key to meeting the tight schedule. The job was completed within the time constraints, leaving Julie Lombardo head of finance to say the following…
“As with all trusts and academies we ensure that we deploy our limited resources effectively and so part of our requirements specification for an asset management solution was for the supplier to undertake a major role in the implementation. This included adapting their service to our needs, and whilst Parago’s pre-sale presentation and consultancy was extremely professional, it seemed to promise a lot. We had to be confident they would steer us through the whole process, including project management, tagging, adding and valuing assets…leaving us with a system which delivered accurate estate valuations across the trust. We received nothing but praise from our academy staff, who were understandably concerned this may disrupt the school day. With a comprehensive group training day, we are now up and running with our solution, and the enthusiasm from all academy users is very encouraging. I rarely find myself being surprised by service that has gone beyond the expected, but Parago really have matched their sales pitch and promises. I would have no hesitation in recommending them to other academies and multi academy trusts.”
