“Thanks to Parago, our school tech team can now scan and assign 350 student devices within 45 minutes.”
A Parago customer since July 2016, Pickens County School District in South Carolina has been our main partner for adapting the asset management and Helpdesk solution to meet the needs of the K12 School District sector.
They themselves have developed innovative ways of maximizing the benefits offered by our asset management software. The school technology team make great use of the mobile app while on the move around the district’s schools, which has enabled tremendous efficiency savings.
The school district originally recognized their need for an inventory management solution when they realised they were at risk of losing precious funds through their technology program.
“We are responsible for thousands of pieces of IT equipment across a large geographical area, with technology spread out to secondary students and members of staff across over 25 schools,” says Barbara Nesbitt, Executive Director of Technology at Pickens County SD.
“Maintaining this with an Excel spreadsheet was extremely laborious and unreliable; we were in danger of losing thousands of technology dollars every year. Parago’s asset management system stood out due to its education-focused approach, ease of use and value for money.”
Several years on, Pickens County School District has greatly reduced the amount of time spent distributing and keeping track of their IT equipment and generated huge cost savings as a result.
“Parago has produced time saving for many of our staff. Our school tech team can now scan and assign 350 of our student devices within 45 minutes with the Parago app,” explains Barbara.
“We use Parago to assign our 1:1 student devices to students. In terms of money saving, our IT and inventory loss from this take-home technology program is now down to less than $5,000 out of more than $2.4 million worth of devices used by students.
“This is less than the district’s loss of textbooks, and as an accountable government department, we are very pleased with this result. The reporting function of Parago also enables us to know exactly where e-rate funding has been spent, and where those devices are located.”
Minimizing lost inventory means more funds through which to deliver leading education. Please get in touch to find out more about what our school district asset management solutions could help you achieve.
