Baltimore, MD (PRWEB) October 11, 2017
On Oct. 5, twelve Connecticut community colleges, led by the System Office of the Connecticut State Colleges and Systems (CSCU), started using the eQuip! system for their system of record in managing all physical assets.
The project for implementing the eQuip! inventory management system in these high education institutions started in January of 2017. During the implementation, the eQuip! system has been configured to meet some unique requirements in account coding, asset category, equipment loan process, and asset disposal codes, as outlined by the State of Connecticut Property Management Manual. Moreover, the eQuip! system has been connected to their ERP system Banner, allowing data to flow from the ERP system to the inventory management system and therefore saving time in data entry and reducing errors.
Last week’s launch of the eQuip! asset inventory management system for the 12 Connecticut Community Colleges is a significant event. Steven Gorman, who led the RFP process in selecting E-ISG Asset Intelligence to provide the inventory management system, commented: “As our partner in this implementation, E-ISG has met the daunting task of building a multi-institutional asset management system which allows each college to independently manage its assets, while enabling the System Office to have an enterprise-wide view. Prior to this eQuip! deployment, the colleges had to hire an external service provider to conduct their annual inventory audit. Now, they can do inventory audits on their own. With the successful completion of this major project in these colleges, we are looking forward to support each of the Connecticut State Universities migrating from their existing asset inventory management system to the eQuip! inventory management system.”
The challenge for implementing an inventory management system across so many institutions is to strike a balance for consistent business processes across all while allowing individual institutions to configure and customize their data fields, workflows, and reports. Jackie Luo, CEO of E-ISG Asset Intelligence, believes that the latest implementation is a testimony to the unique strength of the eQuip! asset management system. She said, “The eQuip! software is a Commercial Off the Shelf system, but it is flexibly built to allow individual configuration. The implementation team completed such a major system implementation in less than 10 months, including integrating eQuip! with CSCU’s ERP system Banner. This shows how flexible the eQuip! system is. The flexibility is what our users need and that’s how we want to deliver the software.”
