March 25, 2015 – Kyrene School District (AZ) has awarded Hayes Software Systems a contract to implement TIPWeb-IT, a comprehensive management solution for K-12 asset inventory control. Kyrene is Hayes Software Systems’ first TIPWeb-IT customer in the state of Arizona. The K-8 district, which serves 18,000 students, will track and manage their assets across 25 sites.
Through the competitive RFP (request for proposal) solicitation process, a team of district level staff selected TIPWeb-IT as their software of choice in order to ensure that the district is able to easily check-out devices to students for their 1:1 laptop and iPad initiative, perform yearly building audits, and accurately plan and budget for future classroom equipment refreshes and purchases. The new system supports their existing asset barcode labels to perform the daily movement of inventory between buildings, rooms, staff and students.
TIPWeb-IT also meets two future capability requirements of Kyrene’s RFP including the ability to interface with the districts’ fixed asset system to update capital asset records with current building location and lifecycle status as well as fully integrated RFID technology to increase the speed and accuracy of performing asset inventory audits.
“It’s an honor for us to partner with Kyrene as they transform the way they manage their technology assets,” said Matt Winebright, President and CEO. “We’re excited to aid this progressive and innovative district as they continue to use technology as a key contributor to instruction.”
The TIPWeb-IT asset inventory software empowers administrators and educators with the tools and information they need to be accountable for technology assets and be effective, responsive educational leaders. Staff will not only have access to a centralized inventory database to make their jobs easier, but the easy to use software will give them more time to focus on shaping and executing a vision of academic success for all students.
