Parago is currently delivering value and benefits to a community of approximately 1000 Schools, Colleges and Universities in the UK, Europe and the US, and has now become available in Australia and across the Asia Pacific region.
With the added advantage of Parago Mobile, asset management can now become simpler.
Schools, colleges and universities are no longer simply education institutions. Today educational institutions are businesses with financial pressures, budgetary constraints and regulatory obligations.
Further, School Boards are becoming more demanding as educational sector competitiveness increases. Parago delivers tangible benefits to schools and institutions for:
Having accurate records of all your assets, their current value and current location is fundamental to ensuring insurance policies and premiums are based on fact and not guesswork.
Further, having accurate asset information readily accessible and available simplifies insurance claim lodgement should the worst happen, and helps expedite claim resolution.
Accurate records of what assets you already have and where they are located and prevents purchasing expense wastage.
Further, Parago’s built-in asset depreciation functionality helps School Administrators to optimally plan asset replacement and divestment.
Parago’s Reporting Function and the Parago Mobile app simplify asset movement tracking, enabling staff to quickly and easily find the assets they need and to record when they move an asset from one location to another.
With Parago, the resource and time intensive annual Asset Audit is obsolete. Parago Asset Audit reports highlight exceptions; so the Audit focus switches from finding every asset and recording its current location to a finding a few misplaced assets.
Today software is used extensively in the educational process in addition to school administration functions. Parago’s Software Asset Management module enables schools to keep tabs on software installed on devices connected to the school’s network. This assists IT staff maintaining control over licences and Standard Operating Environments.
Parago monitors software usage facilitating optimal software licence allocation.
Using Parago, asset loan pools may be established and managed for staff and students.
Assets may be assigned to staff and students and checked back into the Loan Pool when returned. Of course, Parago maintains a full audit trial for each asset in the loan pools.
