Based in Ontario, Canada, Conseil Scolaire Catholique de District des Grandes Rivières (CSCDGR), welcomes more than 6,200 elementary and high school students daily to our 29 elementary schools, 8 high schools and 3 alternative education centers in an area of approximately 25,000 square kilometers.
With that many schools in our system, we have a large number of assets that are being transferred from school to school and to/from multiple cities. When it came to tracking assets, we were not keeping up with them for the most part. The only real method we incorporated was to use an Excel spreadsheet to track our iPads. It was definitely a challenge to keep track of what equipment we had throughout the school system. We needed a way to know what we had, where it was, and determine what needed to be replaced and updated on a regular basis.
We started using Asset Panda just over a year ago and have seen definite changes in our processes. Asset Panda is easy-to-use. We can easily look up serial numbers of assets and see where equipment is located. The barcode scanning has been most beneficial to us in the short time we have migrated to the platform. Right now, our focus is concentrated on getting every one of our assets barcoded and into Asset Panda. And that’s where the mobile app has been especially useful. We are not using Asset Panda to its full potential yet, but definitely will be delving into the system as we move forward.
In terms of customer service, we have been very pleased with what Asset Panda offers. We have requested changes to the mobile app and those changes have been implemented so that the system works with our needs. It’s very nice to have a company that actually listens to the needs of their customers.
