ASSET PANDA
(www.assetpanda.com)

Asset Panda is a cloud-based system for tracking assets via native mobile and web apps. It enables on demand access to valuable information about equipment, employees, or basically anything else that needs to be tracked. The customizable interface allows users and administrators to perform complex actions by simply scanning a barcode or clicking a button in the app. Everything from check-in/check-out to auditing is made easy, which saves our users time and money. Asset Panda is priced based on the number of assets being tracked, not by the number of users. Pricing also includes implementation service from Asset Panda’s team of experts that customize the system to work exactly the way schools want. Built-in barcode scanning software saves schools the expense of buying separate equipment.
