How Warwickshire College Automates Its IT Assets Inventory

The College has made significant investments to support courses and apprenticeships in technology-led trades and recently invested in an additional 1,200 PCs for students. Warwickshire College is one of the largest colleges of further and higher education in the Midlands region. Spread over six centers with 1,700 staff and 18,500 students needing support for both administration and learning facilities, Warwickshire College Information Services has a significant number of IT assets that have to be controlled across multiple sites.

original system for managing IT assets was based on printed barcode labels stuck on to equipment. Serial numbers from labels were transcribed manually to spreadsheets creating a record of what equipment was where in the college. Inevitably the audit process of checking labels and updating spreadsheets was both time-consuming and prone to error, causing unnecessary costs and providing inaccurate information on the whereabouts of assets.

To help improve the control of their IT assets, Warwickshire College decided to introduce RFID tagging for IT assets. They chose CoreRFID to work with them on selecting and supplying the right technology and applications to deliver their solution and selected Xerafy’s Metal Skin series of RFID labels.
