Trox offers the most complete IT asset management solution for education.
Track assets throughout their lifecycles with end-to-end School Asset Management
Every year, millions of dollars of IT assets go missing from K-12 schools. Not only do these losses impact already tight budgets, they can result in a loss of public trust.
With K-12 schools adopting education technology at an increasing rate, understanding how much IT assets cost throughout the lifecycle—from initial acquisition through maintenance and repair to disposal—can make all the difference in tight K-12 budgets.
Today’s cloud-based, mobile-friendly school asset management programs use barcodes or RFID tags to provide complete IT asset management through the life of IT assets.
Trox can help you better track and manage IT assets—and reduce costs—with a complete school asset management solution.
