What are the benefits to for Me and My School?
The pain is taken out of completing a stocktake so staff will be happy to complete the task.
Nearly all Schools implementing our system have found Equipment that has never been on the Equipment Register.
Once complete you know the Stocktake is accurate and you can be totally confident that an item marked as sighted is in fact sighted.
Date and Time stamp is automatically for each item scanned gives true accountability.
You will save time, time and more time and money while providing accuracy:
– This becomes a one person task.
– All a person needs is to move around the school with the scanner.
– The human element is taken out of the equation (such as reading serial numbers and or barcode numbers).
– The Application does the data matching within a few minutes saving the time of a person manually updating the Equipment Register.
– A basic but detailed report is generated for each item showing updated items, updated items with room changes and not sighted items at the end providing you a Your To Do list for unsighted items.
A few questions for you.
Currently, to complete a stocktake approximately how long do you spend in staff hours?
This includes time spent preparing for stocktake, printing pages to mark off items found, then physically walking around the school to sight items, then entering the sighted items, entering room changes, sorting again to print a second list of items not sighted.
Taking this in mind approximately how much does it cost to complete a stocktake?
When completed how confident are you with the stocktake result?
