Hardware Inventory

Inventory Software

 

Public schools districts, private schools, and higher education institutions have a responsibility to manage their inventory and assets appropriately, because there are so many stakeholders involved. These educational institutions receive funding, tuition, and other endowments that make them especially accountable to those stakeholders. More importantly, these institutions fall under the governance of the Governmental Accounting Standards Board (GASB) standards or the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) standards, and complying with the standards is critical to their ongoing operations.

Because inventory management and asset management are so important to educational institutions, schools and the educators employed by them should be aware of the best practices associated with inventory and fixed assets. To help those schools and educators become more informed about inventory and asset management, we have rounded up our top picks for inventory and asset management resources. Our top inventory and asset management resources for schools and educators are made available by industry leaders and experts in the field, so that educational institutions can be assured they are getting the most accurate and up-to-date information.

Nice resources here. I knew that inventory/asset management is critical for educational institutions, schools, etc., but I was surprised to see how difficult it can really be.

This is something else I want to share with the tech coordinator of the school district I teach at. He does not use an inventory program, just Google sheets. I feel it is so important to keep track of the hardware that is being purchased. That is a expensive investment.
