Equipment Checkout Software Timesavers
Equipment checkout software relieves much of the administration from staff for more efficient equipment lending services. After all, those working in equipment stores know how time consuming it can be to respond to a series of student enquiries about equipment availability every day. With equipment checkout software in place this information is provided to students directly online, enabling them to reserve what they need for themselves.
The time savings don't end there. Here are the top 8 ways online equipment checkout software saves you time:
So in addition to helping students to help themselves, there are many other benefits of equipment checkout software. Inventory management, the checkout/in process and many other aspects of equipment lending routines are streamlined and, to a large extent, automated.
This is how the time savings work with connect2 software
Instead of arriving at the desk speculatively or enquiring by email or phone, students can use the connect2 online system to view availability of equipment and make their own bookings. So when they turn up at the counter, the items they want are definitely available and take less than 5 minutes to issue. This is in contrast to the 15+ minutes it would otherwise take to respond to each query.
90% of universities using connect2 operate such an advance booking system, and this leads to an average 70% of bookings being made by students online in advance.
Massive time savings accumulate when staff no longer need to chase up on as many late returns, as the automated communications in connect2 lead to a fast drop off in overdue items. For those who are still late, they are instantly identified in the system, so staff are supported in any remaining chasing up that needs to take place. Plus time taken for inventory management tasks is vastly reduced, with key data at your fingertips for reporting and stock taking.
