Resource Manager Helps Districts Save Money by Tracking Assets

Barrington Community Unit 220 School District in northwest Illinois faced a dilemma familiar to many pre-K12 districts: It was poised to begin the initial phases of a 1:1 transformation but knew it first must have an effective software system in place to track and manage all of the digital devices it was distributing.

“This was a huge transition for our district, and we knew we needed to protect and make the most of our investment in the devices we were giving to kids,” said LeeAnn Taylor, district media services director for Barrington CUSD.

This week, Follett officially launches Destiny Resource Manager into the marketplace as part of the company’s Destiny 13.0 release.

Beyond devices, Follett Destiny Resource Manager manages all resources for students, including textbooks, STEM resources, band instruments, sports equipment, and for teachers/staff, including computers, audio-visual equipment and professional development services.
