District Resources and Assets is a powerful new tool in the Aeries Web Version. Designed originally to replace the old Textbook Inventory System in the Aeries Client Version, the New District Resources and Assets system handles the management of many more types of district assets, such as laptops, projectors, iPads, cell phones, and of course, textbooks. Some schools even use it to track reserved parking spots for Seniors.
Districts can manage their resources through the Check-In and Check-Out process by scanning and assigning items to students and/or staff. A full history of every person assigned an item is maintained for each item and item information can be quickly looked up using the "Quick Asset Information" page by scanning the asset barcode. An array of reports is available as well.
Transferring or re-assigning resources between schools is easy. The Mass Change Assets page handles this quickly and can also be used to quickly mass change the status of many asset items.
Replacement and Damage Fees are quick to assign and the system is constantly monitoring for lost items that appear later.
As we keep expanding the features to support the needs of more districts, more reports and enhancements will be added down the road.
To take advantage of this free, fully integrated feature of Aeries, contact our second level support for implementation and setup. We can even convert your old Textbook data from the Aeries Client.
