Top of the list of reasons is the prospect of saving both time and money in moving to an asset management software solution. A dedicated system can have big financial benefits for schools and academies – making sure the budget is used for providing pupils with an excellent education, instead of paying for excess overheads.
An automated asset management system dramatically frees up time across the board for the school’s IT, finance and admin staff. Manual asset counts usually fall to the ICT department which is responsible for managing a portfolio of high value equipment. Eliminating the repetitive task of locating and tracking software, laptops, etc, will save an ICT technician significant man hours. Additionally, the time saved in managing capital depreciation, insurance claims, procurement planning and budget forecasting, lets the whole management team focus resources where they really count.
