ITS is pleased to announce the introduction of a complete technology asset management program that will create efficiencies in managing, tracking and identifying all computing and networking equipment for the entirety of their lifecycle.
Beginning in June ITS will be initiating a campus wide program to place identification tags on all existing PSU owned desktop and laptop computers as well as other IT assets as we enter these assets into the system. The new identification tags will be small circular tags (about the size of a quarter) with a 2D barcode that will allow us to track and maintain the record with scanning devices. Andrew Garrozo, a 4-year student employee of ITS, will be conducting the inventory tagging process. You may see him around campus, in the clusters, offices and network spaces throughout the month of June.
We estimate the initial phase of the inventory to take 4 weeks and the impact of the inventory will be minimal since we only need a few minutes with each machine. We appreciate your understanding. We hope that this data will allow IT to more efficiently manage warranty schedules, repairs and assist departments with purchase planning across campus.
