Syed Ali, founder and CEO of EZO, wrote an article for Education IT Reporter in which he highlighted that while K-12 schools are now increasingly becoming technology-reliant, problems in the collection and distribution of IT assets prevail. In the article he emphasizes how IT asset management software can streamline the process and make it more efficient.
Here is an excerpt from the article,
“During the COVID pandemic, millions of K-12 students across the US relied on borrowed devices from their school districts, with Chromebooks being the most common for remote learning. Schools rapidly adopted Chromebooks in 2020, as the demand surged during the transition to remote or hybrid learning models, resulting in millions of students receiving laptops, tablets, and Chromebooks from school districts nationwide.
Fast forward a few years, and now, many K-12 districts are still scrambling to account for all those devices, year after year. This includes not only locating and recovering missing devices, but also making sure clear policies and procedures are in place for future distribution, collection, liability, and insurance claim filings for those devices that can’t be found, as well as budgeting time and staff to inspect and repair any tablets that do come back before they’re redistributed.”– Syed Ali, Founder and Chief Executive Officer EZO
