Austin Independent School District Selects Radiant RFID for Asset ManagementMedia RelationsComments off.
AUSTIN, Texas (March 4, 2013) – Austin Independent School District (AISD), Texas’ fifth largest school district, selected Radiant RFID’s technology to RFID-enable the district’s asset management system. The move empowers campus administrators to directly manage and audit campus inventory of high tech equipment quickly and accurately with less effort than traditional barcode systems.
As school districts adopt technology for students and classrooms, keeping up with equipment becomes increasingly critical. AISD will utilize Radiant’s asset management solution to manage locations of their highly diverse and mobile inventory of laptops, tablets, smartboards, and other classroom assets. The solution directly integrates with AISD’s existing asset software via Radiant’s web services API giving them real time visibility into asset location and movement.
During an audit, Radiant’s solution quickly reports what assets are assigned to, located within, or missing from a classroom. This information allows administrators to quickly and accurately reconcile inventory and account for item movement from room to room, building to building, and even campus to campus, thus saving the district time and money while fostering a philosophy of reuse.
Kenneth Ratton, Radiant RFID executive vice president, said, “We are excited to work with Austin ISD and look forward to providing immediate value by RFID enabling the management and inventory all of their assets. As our solution continues to be adopted by large school districts across the United States, we anticipate adding further value with our fully integrated suite of products for attendance, bus ridership, asset management, and safety.”
Radiant has participated onsite with AISD throughout the entire evaluation process to confirm optimal RFID tag selection and placement on a wide variety of classroom assets. With the help of Radiant’s rapid deployment services, the district will implement the solution district-wide to perform regular audits and “spot checks” throughout the year.
Designed specifically for educators, Radiant’s K-12 Solutions encompass asset tracking, student attendance reporting, emergency management, and bus ridership. Each of these solutions can be deployed individually or as an integrated suite leveraging a single infrastructure investment.
