“It’s obvious Parago’s asset management software has been developed with education in mind.”
The team at East Pennsboro Area School District knew they needed intuitive software to help them stay on top of a growing asset portfolio. Both staff and students use hardware supplied by the SD, so managers required a quick and easy way to track each device and its usage.
“We were in need of an asset management solution to manage and track the increasing level of IT equipment in our schools, as well as teacher and student devices,” explains Tom Steele, School Technology Director at East Pennsboro Area School District.
While considering a number of different asset management systems, Tom attended the Pennsylvania Educational Technology Expo and Conference, where he saw a demonstration of our software by the heads of technology at Northwest Tri-County Intermediate Unit (IU5). IU5 have been using Parago solutions to manage their own assets and facilities for several years.
“I was drawn to features such as the app and the agent discovery technology, as well as how the system keeps an audit history of an asset’s movements and data changes all the way through to end of life,” says Tom.
The fact that our software has been developed specifically for and with schools helped East Pennsboro Area SD decide that Parago was the asset management software solution they had been looking for.
“It was obvious it was developed with education in mind, and I believe this is important as it shows the company understands our specific needs,” agrees Tom. “We are now importing all our asset details from spreadsheets, which is another feature that is saving us time.”
Storing inventory data in a central, cloud-based location enables Tom and the team to maintain a single, up-to-date view of the district’s assets at all times, and ensures they remain on top of audits, procurement and device specifications.
