Self-Service Support for Peak Periods

Due to their pre-planned timetables, schoolchildren have access to their school library are often limited to break and lunch times. Therefore, a combination of peak and non-peak periods, manifesting as a series of bottlenecks throughout the day, is a common experience for every school librarian.

Catering to all your budding library users during these busy access periods can become a significant challenge. A challenge that creates the potential to leave children without the books and other library media they require.

“I have been really impressed with D-Tech International, on many levels.”

THE LIBRARY

Rivers Academy is an Ofsted rated Outstanding secondary school with around 1200 pupils, including the sixth form.

THE CHALLENGE

The school was purchasing stock but suffering significant losses through missing books. Pupils not inclined to queue to check out their books were just walking out with them.

The library uses a management system provided by IS Oxford and required a solution that would integrate with that and operate alongside the other IT systems within the school.

THE SOLUTION

In July 2015 D-Tech International installed RFID security gates in the library and integrated them with the library management system. D-Tech also supplies RFID tagging and an ongoing maintenance contract.

THE RESULTS:

Improved security, Improved accountability, Excellent ROI

 

“I have been really impressed with D-Tech International, on many levels. D-Tech’s one-off equipment costs were very competitive; the ongoing costs of RFID tags were also cheaper than their competitors. Providing a two-year warranty as opposed to what appears to be the industry standard of one year, clinched the deal for me.

“The other thing that sets D-tech apart is its exemplary customer service. Whenever we have had an issue, they have responded immediately, and the team has worked hard to solve the problem even when it has been a third-party fault. Online and telephone support has been excellent, but it is the speed at which they send an engineer on-site that has impressed me most. I would recommend D-Tech to any school seeking a reliable security solution with a rapid ROI.”
