25 schools in the district are now using Parago Software’s School Inventory Management system
Reading, United Kingdom, 29th March 2016 — Parago Software Ltd., a world leader in cloud-based education inventory management solutions, today announced that it is working with the School District of Pickens County, based in the United States. The School District is using Parago’s cloud-based School Inventory Manager system to manage IT inventory across multiple schools without incurring hefty costs.
With over 25 schools across the Pickens County District, the Accountability, Information and Technology Services Department is responsible for thousands of pieces of IT equipment across a large geographical area, with technology spread out across many sites and used by numerous members of staff. Before implementing the Parago solution, the School District had been maintaining assets via an Excel spreadsheet, which had not only been laborious, but was also unreliable. The District has also recently implemented a one-to-one technology program with secondary students, and as a result, needed a way to accurately manage the assignment of Chromebooks to its students.
Barbara Nesbitt, Director of Instructional Technology at the School District of Pickens County, comments: “We came across Parago as it is very well known in the UK for IT management within education. We were particularly drawn to its ease of use through an icon-based platform and the ability to manage asset assignment using smartphone apps. We felt Parago took security very seriously, especially the ability to be able to restrict individual users’ access to specific areas of the system.”
“After comparing many types of corporate systems and similar asset management products, we felt Parago was by far the best value for money. The initial training was comprehensive and tailored to our requirements. We explained the way in which we wanted our accounts set up and, along with its best practice guidance, our rollout was very smooth. Deployment and training of our staff was easy and we felt confident moving forward with help from Parago’s support team.”
As a result of importing Pickens County’s previous asset management information, Parago Software has also ensured that all previous asset information is safely recorded on its system. Pickens County can now move assets with the app and provide a quick and reliable system for school staff to use.
Barbara Nesbitt continues: “We feel future audits will be much more efficient, especially audits involving state and federal dollars. The undo option is one of our favorite features and allows us to quickly correct any inevitable human errors. Parago has been eager to work with us to implement our specific design requests, such as tweaking permission roles and adding specific help-desk features.”
Tim Roots, Managing Director at Parago Software Limited, comments: “We are delighted to be helping the School District of Pickens County streamline its audit processes. The platform helps schools, such as those in Pickens County, save time but it also helps to make best use of available funds. Pickens County School District can now refer to an accurate and secure platform, helping eradicate human error and save staff time. The system, which was specifically tailored to the Pickens County District’s needs, also means that if there is a shortage of technology in one school that is available in another, this technology can be shared, rather than incurring unnecessary costs by acquiring new equipment.”
