Barcode Asset Management – the New Generation for Education

It’s that time of year again when schools and universities all around the Country open their doors to welcome new and existing students to the start of another academic year. The start of a new term is always full of promise, with new standards being set and revised processes put in place, to ensure a seamless year for students and staff.

As technological advancements continue and the need of increased equipment is required to provide an unrivalled teaching experience, what are schools and universities doing to ensure all assets are accounted for?

Educational establishments are large, complex environments, serving thousands of students with large teams of staff that include, teachers, administrators, support staff and volunteers. Equipment, furniture and fittings, vehicles, IT hardware and software are all required to enable them to deliver their services. However, keeping track of the volume of physical assets is an extremely arduous task, taking up a lot of staff time, which interferes with their primary job role. As a result, each year misplaced or lost items are an enormous expense to the government.

No longer will you query whether a particular piece of equipment has been checked back, as barcode asset tracking allows you to instantly locate it.

Whatever assets you are tracking, keeping check of the whereabouts of all your valuable assets can make or break a business. For schools and universities, unnecessary expenses to replace lost assets can also determine what future costs and resources are allocated by the government to purchase new equipment.
