Multi-site Asset Management for The Brooke Weston Trust

logoWhen looking for a multi-site solution to manage the Trust’s assets, both at a local level for the schools’ administration team and at a trust level for overall management, The Brooke Weston Trust chose CSE.

CSE’s Asset Manager has been designed specifically to manage more complex multi-site, multi-domain groups. It gives Trusts one system to manage the entire inventory, allowing management of any asset type at any location, whilst providing a trust wide view at all times. The system manages and reports on fixed asset registers, software assets, consumables, service functions – and the costs associated with them – from a single cloud based entity.

The ability to configure Asset Manager in various ways to suit the the requirements of The Brooke Weston schools was an important factor. Through a number of design meetings with the Trust, CSE created unique parent/child categories and hierarchies of assets.

Once the design was agreed, we implemented a pilot system at Kettering Science Academy over the Easter period. Our team went in and tagged agreed assets with anti-tamper stickers containing unique serial numbers. These were then scanned into the system using the Asset Manager Mobile App.

Following the successful pilot, CSE completed the asset tagging across the remaining schools through the summer holidays. Thousands of assets were entered into the system, which was launched Trust wide at the start of term.

The CSE team delivered hands on training to key personnel in each school. IT Managers and Business Managers we shown how to record, manage and administer the system at their sites. Training was also given to the central Trust team and automated reports were set-up to the exact needs.

Asset Manager supports report generation from templates, but also provides comprehensive preformatted reports to meet a variety of requirements. All reports can be scheduled to run and be distributed to an email list automatically.

Now that The Brooke Weston Trust have a comprehensive asset register in place, there is a wealth of additional functionality that the Asset Manager software can deliver as and when they are ready to utilise it.
