CHEQROOM makes people accountable.
“When I walked in to take over CHEQROOM duties within the university, they were not yet utilizing the full aspects of CHEQROOM. Together with the students, we started adding serial codes, printing QR tags, and got all the equipment inventoried. This is really helpful for two reasons: one is differentiating between equipment when it gets turned in for a lease. You know exactly which piece of equipment you need because it’s tagged. It’s just easier to find stuff.”
“On the other hand, a rental firm has workers all day, who are able to look over a piece of gear when it gets returned. They have the necessary technical expertise to do so. We don’t have that technical expertise with students, and we don’t have the time. As a result of doing the QR codes and inventory, we can easily go back and address the situation when there is something wrong,” says Matt.
