“We will be recommending Parago to any district looking into solutions to track and manage their IT and assets.”
Consisting of four public K-12 schools, Somers Central School District knew they needed an asset management solution to digitize and centralize the organization of their resources. The team considered several software providers, but Parago’s graphical user interface, visual feel, free trial and value for money made it stand out from the competition.
“The product’s many appealing features made the price very competitive, and the free trial with support allowed us to be sure it was the right solution for us,” says Laura Lee Ehrgott, Manager of Technology Services at Somers Central School District.
“Just some of those features have made my teams’ workloads much easier during our first year of using Parago. The PC agent automatically discovers the specification of PCs and installed software, and we can then simply merge them when importing spreadsheets of assets that contain the many other data fields that the software facilitates.”
Mobile working has been a particular benefit for the team at Somers Central SD. The ability to log their inventory items on their move has given them a single reliable audit trail, as well as an up-to-the-minute view of exactly when and where new assets are needed.
“The Apple and Android app makes light work of auditing, moving, editing and adding assets wherever you are in a school, and removes the need for any paperwork,” explains Laura. “The reporting function is very good and enables us to plan procurement across the district.”
As is the case with each of the schools and school districts we work with, feedback from the team at Somers Central has enabled us to further enhance our software capabilities so that they better meet the demands of the dynamic school environment.
“The support that Parago have given us during our first year has been great, and they have listened to our suggestions for development. We are now using their Helpdesk Ticketing module which has had so many new features added, as well as a new look and feel.
“We will be recommending Parago to any district that is looking into solutions to track and manage their IT and assets.”
