Education: Schools, Colleges & Universities

Give your assets perfect attendance with reliable and versatile Metalcraft asset tracking

Schools, especially college campuses, often have many assets spread across multiple facilities, with high-value technology frequently going back and forth between them. Tracking equipment and supplies is a challenge in any school, and record keeping can easily become a nightmare due to misplaced assets, forcing busy faculty and staff to waste precious time tracking down audio visual devices, laboratory equipment or other supplies. If the equipment can't be found, many schools stretch their already tight budgets to unnecessarily purchase or rent replacements. 

Metalcraft specializes in asset tracking, especially in the education world. The benefits of implementing education asset tracking technology with us include: 

  • Reducing unnecessary equipment purchases 

  • Tracking depreciation of equipment 

  • Discouraging theft of school property 

  • Maintaining accounting records in accordance with GASB 34 

Tracking educational resources can be done with barcode or RFID technology, helping to maximize their use and keeping school budgets in line and on target, exemplifying ID Made Better®.
