We were suffering from asset loss in our charter schools. Inventory was not being tracked at our remote sites since there was no tech staff on site. So to take matters into our own hands we deployed Absolute. I also brought Loss-Prevention team members from our retail stores to help.
I set up geofences for our school buildings and alerts, so even if our staff did not report an asset stolen (student computer), we would receive an alert that a computer had left without permission. A police report could be filed and recovery could begin. We were also able to lock and display messages remotely in the case a computer was not actually stolen, the end user could call the number on the screen and it was a quick process to verify the user and unlock the machine. We recovered multiple assets and disrupted the theft that was occurring and have significantly decreased missing inventory.
We were also able to set alerts for staff machines in case of theft and system changes and remotely wipe sensitive data. I was very happy with the product and it achieved the goals of the roll out.
