Chesapeake Public Schools Selects TIPWeb-IM as District-Wide Textbook Inventory Management System

March 1, 2013 – Chesapeake Public Schools has awarded Hayes Software Systems a 5-year contract to provide a Textbook Inventory Software System and Services. Through the competitive request for proposal solicitation process, a team of district and school level staff selected TIPWeb-IM as their software of choice.  Chesapeake PS joins a host of other Virginia school districts including: Virginia Beach CPS, Chesterfield PS, Newport News PS, and Suffolk PS.

This software will provide Chesapeake PS with a centralized, web-based inventory tracking system for all 52 schools and the central warehouse to manage textbooks and instructional materials for the district’s 39,000 students. Hayes’ proposed solution will include its TIPWeb-IM software for inventory management, automated system integration for the districts’ student information system, and consulting services that will aid CPS in the transition to a centralized inventory management system.

“Anytime we can help bring our expertise, best practices, and our product to a great district like Chesapeake PS we cherish it,” said Debbie Disler, Vice President of Customer Support and Training at Hayes Software Systems. “We also have a great group of district customers in Virginia that love to help each other out.  Chesapeake’s team is going to be a great addition to the Hayes family in Virginia.”

The TIPWeb-IM software system provides Chesapeake PS school administrators the ability to track and manage their entire textbook inventory district-wide through a single system of record.  By connecting with the district’s student information system they will also be able to prepare, months in advance, for instructional material needs based on upcoming student enrollment.  This will allow them to provide books and content to students faster and more efficiently.
