“The fact that Parago offered multiple solutions in one asset management system was a major benefit.”
With four schools in Illinois, Mount Prospect School District serves over 2,000 pre-kindergarten through eighth grade students. The SD provides hundreds of Chromebooks for their students and has many other IT assets located throughout its schools. The team needed a way to help them manage the delegation and status of this inventory on a day-to-day basis.
The team considered several different asset management systems before opting for Parago’s user-friendly, customizable solution.
“We looked at three asset management solutions when we purchased Parago, but there were some distinctive features to Parago that made it stand out from the others,” explains Maria Potratz, District Technology Coordinator at Mount Prospect School District.
“Firstly, its graphical user interface made it easy to use, and we liked the way you can have the layout of your schools with assets linked to rooms or people. Parago’s asset management software lets you have a real time view of where your assets are, and which assets members of staff should have. We also wanted IT & School Inventory Management functionality and a Helpdesk Ticketing solution, so the fact that Parago offered both in one system was a major benefit.”
Deploying our solution has also given Mount Prospect district-wide insight in terms of bespoke reporting. With the ability to view and order their entire inventory by key metrics, and tailor reports for different divisions within the district, the team can make plans that reflect actual organizational performance.
“Parago enables you to manipulate standard reports, so that they can accommodate the needs of technical support and administration departments,” says Maria. “This has helped us produce asset procurement forecasts based on depreciated value, age or end of warranty.”
