Community Colleges Reduce Costs by Tracking School Assets

2 min

Community colleges offer affordable education to those in need with free or reduced tuition. There are many benefits of a community college which offer a two-year higher education.

Affordable education and housing: Students who are not able to take up the four-year college or those who cannot afford housing can greatly benefit from community colleges. Many community colleges offer free housing as well.

Associate degrees: Community colleges provide associate degrees that are enough to provide jobs for many students. At any point in time, students can pursue bachelor’s degree while earning a respectable income with an associate degree.

Other programs: Community colleges offer additional athletic programs and sports including basketball, baseball, and football.

Dedicated mentors: Professors in a community college work closely with students and are able to mentor as the size of each class tends to be smaller.

Since many community colleges are not for profit and are largely funded by the government, they need to be prudent when it comes to costs. Some states have cut down on the budget available which means there is a need to manage the expenses even more carefully.

Multiple assets to manage

Community colleges have many fixed and movable assets to manage, such as tables, chairs, electrical fixtures, computers, screens and so on. Laboratories, where experiments are conducted, can necessitate inventory tracking of huge proportions. Asset tracking can be complex when budgets are limited and every expense needs to be accounted for.

Thefts are a serious concern

Community college property can be stolen during winter or summer breaks or during holidays. Having a smart asset tracking and inventory tracking system in place can minimize the hassles of tracing the missing equipment or assets.
