Fifth Largest District in Ohio, Akron Public Schools, Selects Hayes for Inventory Management

May 9, 2017 – Akron selected TIPWeb-IT and TIPWeb-IM, both tailored specifically to the needs of K-12 districts, because they will allow the district to accurately and efficiently track the location and status of all their assets and textbooks. Unlike Akron’s former inventory processes, which required manual, time intensive, and inefficient processes, the TIPWeb product suite will enable district administrators and support staff to record, track, and report on their inventory quickly and easily. Previously, the district’s inventory was tracked in multiple disparate inventory spreadsheets, which led to data inconsistencies and confusion over the location and ownership of inventory, especially when managing the district’s recent 1:1 initiative.

TIPWeb-IT and TIPWeb-IM will allow for inventory oversight at both the district and campus level, while also increasing the district’s efficiencies when managing campus requests for inventory. The project’s implementation includes partnering with Hayes’ consulting services team to align inventory management roles and responsibilities. To best support their new TIPWeb procedures, Akron will also implement a “train the trainer” model to ensure the district’s staff has the support and knowledge they need to be successful in managing this new solution.
