How one school has developed an interesting way to protect laptops, chargers, etc.

Four years ago Bryanston School in Dorset decided that something had to be done to allow the school to track and check its growing stock of IT equipment.

As a result they decided to label laptops on their site not just with the school’s postcode but also with the name of the student who owned the computer.

Over the subsequent period they have also labelled iPads, iPhones and hard drives, using ID SILVER MARK labels throughout.

Quite simply they order labels for the new September intakes each year, ordering enough labels for existing equipment plus two further labels per student in case the students get new laptops during the year.

A key issue, of course, was ensuring that no one simply removed the labels. ID SILVER MARK labels are ideal as if the label gets peeled off, the UV paint still show the schools postcode and pupil name. What’s more, it is also an ideal for tracking equipment if it goes missing.

In other words the ID SILVER MARK allows you to protect your valuable equipment with a permanent visual security marking.

Obviously it is nice for us when a school actively recommends our system of marking and tracking, but that’s not the only recommendation we get.

The Police and Insurance companies have noted that the ID MARK conforms to Home Office Guidelines – by using your school name and postcode as a way of identifying your property, this helps with item recovery in case of theft.

ID SILVER MARK is available in black or silver materials with permanent adhesive. All Dantech asset identification labels are personalised with your school name and logo as well as sequential numbering or bar codes.
