Officials estimated that another $6,009 worth of school property might be missing. a growing problem in asset tracking for schools.

Unfortunately, too many schools use rudimentary spreadsheets that are not updated regularly-maybe once or twice a school year. As a result of poor (or non-existent) asset management procedures, it can be a significant challenge for schools to identify when items are broken, lost, replaced, or stolen. Continuing to use an outdated method for tracking asset information, places schools at significant risk of losing much needed financing. * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * SOLUTIONS FOR EDUCATION ASSET TRACKING With A2B Tracking you can now easily track and maintain critical assets such as 34500 computer systems, furniture, art, utilities, testing equipment, audio-visual gear, and other high-value items.
