Great Berry has its say...

Jan 14 2015

Great Berry Academy has selected the Asset Tracking mobile app, Track5000s, to provide real-time access to information on the whereabouts of moveable assets and to automate its entire asset management process. We spoke with Chris Emerson, Great Berry Academy’s Bursar about how the two solutions will help improve efficiency throughout the academy.


‘’Prior to working with RAM, we used a spreadsheet to record our assets, managed by the site manager. However, tracking our assets this way had become a long and arduous process. As an academy, it is also important that we are able to both calculate depreciation and access accurate and up to date information on all of our assets for insurance purposes.’’

‘’What RAM’s solutions have, which stood out against other providers we looked at, is the functionality to calculate depreciation for us, whilst the provision of a mobile app will give staff the ability to quickly and easily enter items into our system and check their location whenever needed. The app will also remove the requirement for the academy to purchase expensive scanning equipment.’’

‘’Throughout the implementation process ,RAM has been very flexible and patient in allowing both us and our governing body the time needed to follow our due processes and procedures.’’

‘’We believe the process of managing and tracking our assets will become so much more efficient and our new asset plan will save our staff vital time; an essential component in why the academy chose to move to an automated and mobile system.’’

About our app

RAM’s smartphone app is available on iOS, Android and Windows Phone 8. The app requires an initial Internet connection in order to retrieve the data, but thereafter holds it locally, enabling the functionality to be accessed in any location with or without an Internet connection.
