Don’t just take our word for it – two of our happy customers told Ed Exec of their experiences with Parago’s asset management software, and how it’s helped them to keep track of their school’s equipment.

Hillyfield Academy in London learnt the hard way that the worst can indeed happen. It chose to implement our asset management software after being burgled in 2013. A quarter of a million pounds’ worth of equipment was stolen, and the insurance claim was a long and arduous process. Should the school need to make another insurance claim in the future, Parago’s software will ensure the process is a lot less stressful and that the school is back up and running as soon as possible.

In contrast, Holt School in Wokingham installed our software just in time, as a few months later it was broken into. “We were able, through Parago, to produce a detailed schedule of the missing equipment and photographs for the police and insurance company the same morning,” Janet Perry, the school’s business manager, told Ed Exec. “It ensured our claim was dealt with very smoothly.”

We’ve also enabled a number of schools to significantly cut their insurance premiums – Birchwood High School in Hertfordshire managed to save £6,000 a year! In a time where budget cuts are rife, that’s a serious amount of money that could be invested in new equipment, technology or better security measures.
