Missouri State University is a public university located in Springfield, Missouri, United States. Their department of media, journalism and film uses CHEQROOM to manage over 1000 pieces of AV equipment. Nathan Hartzler is in charge of the department’s equipment inventory.
Before using CHEQROOM, the department did use software to manage their equipment, but were unable to rely on it. “We were unable to rely on the equipment software we had previously which led to more chaos on top of the complex equipment logistics.”
Working with CHEQROOM seemed like a natural choice: “CHEQROOM is modern, forward thinking, and seems focused on a singular goal of making equipment management better.”
“We can eliminate the software as a problem-variable in the chaotic process of providing equipment for 400+ students each semester. CHEQROOM gives us a productive edge and allows us to focus on tackling the other equipment logistics.”
“We are paying less for our large CHEQROOM subscription then we were for a support maintenance contract for our previous on-premises software. We have also gained back about 3-5 minutes per checkin or checkout (due to the simple user experience) which allows the lab workers to more time to inspect the equipment.
The simple, easy to grasp user interface has been a dramatic change for our lab workers and is our favourite part of CHEQROOM. Since the student lab workers are not as confused by the software, it means less time spent in training with the lab administrators and less mistakes made daily by the student lab worker.”
