The GAO RFID Education Services System ensures that a wide range of challenges that are unique to colleges and universities are efficiently managed for the best results.
Management and Tracking of Equipment
In order for colleges to operate with efficiency, all equipment on school grounds must be maintained. The introduction of iPads, iMacs, desktops and laptops as an integral part of the student’s learning tools, the maintenance of computer equipment has become a vital part of college life. All equipment need to be efficiently tracked and monitored to prevent costly losses.
With the GAO RFID Asset Tracking System, the tracking and maintenance of monitoring the equipment can be automated, thereby keeping college owned equipment both safe and secure depending on your school’s needs.
Checking Quality and Quantity of Inventory
Colleges have a variety of equipment that requires thorough inventory checks. From the lab instruments to the maintenance equipment, they all require some sort of inventory check on a routine basis. To have the amount and the location of the equipment is vital to the success of the college.
The RFID solutions can provide you with methods to track and categorize all equipment depending on the specific organization with the campus and its unique needs.
Optimization of Time on College Campus
To allow for the best possible learning environment, teachers and staff need to optimize the time they spend on campus. The best way to accomplish all that they need is to allow for automated data management as well as monitoring staff work flow. Knowing when staff arrive, enter, and leave lectures allows administration to decide how to optimize personnel time on campus.
Using the GAO RFID Personnel Tracking System, you can assign RFID Badges to professors and administrative staff enables the progression of students and efficiency of staff to be monitored as they go through their daily activities.
Controlling and Restricting Access
Numerous lecture halls, buildings, gyms, parking area, doors, cafeteria and fields brings a slew of unique challenges to keeping staff and students as safe and secure as you want. The management of the persons who enter the campus is necessary to ensure reduced risk of potential harm.
RFID Badges enable a fully automated way of granting and restricting access to specific zones on college property as well as specialized equipment when paired with our RFID Access Control System. This ensures a controlled access to certain parts of campus and the safe operation of campus equipment that only trained and licensed operators should use.
Tracking and Managing Students, Teachers, Visitors and Unknown Personnel
Identifying and locating both students and staff at your organization is a necessary part of maintaining their safety and security. Our RFID solutions enable administrative staff to track students and unidentifiable persons and monitor them every step of the way. In addition, GAO RFID can provide you with a set of specialized tags with integrated alarms that can be activated in case of emergency and broadcasts the user’s identity and location to ensure quickest possible reaction time from either security or law enforcement.
Integrating GAO RFID Solutions with your Education Management System
The challenge arises when it’s time to put that collected information to work: integrating RFID-generated data into educational applications so that essential information can be viewed, analyzed, applied and presented to end users.
Competency assessment software, payroll systems, and decision support management tools are used to help make other educational and instructional processes more efficient. It is essential that an RFID solution is compatible with such systems.
