The district was looking for real-time inventory and material tracking with transparency of textbooks and assets across the district. The current policy included too many steps and staff member hours to manage textbooks and other assets. Further, Anaheim City USD needed to manage textbook surpluses and deficits across its schools. This was a direct compliance issue per the 2004 Williams-Settlement law in California.
The District needed a solution that would work with their SIS, Aeries, to gain access and integrate with the district's data.
- 1. The district assembled a committee of district staff members who were involved in textbook management.
- 2. The committee evaluated its current inventory control policies.
- 3. The district searched for a streamlined solution that could meet their needs.
Anaheim City School District chose Hayes’ TIPWeb-IM software as the product of choice. By upgrading its textbook and material management with TIPWeb-IM software, the Anaheim City School District can anticipate gaining several advantages, including real-time inventory accounting, streamlined material tracking, and greater accountability for and transparency of all textbooks and materials across the District, including assignments to students.
The committee found that Hayes’ TIPWeb-IM web-based software system best matched their needs, largely because it is specifically tailored for K-12 instructional materials management right out-of-the-box. With TIPWeb-IM, Anaheim City can expect to gain greater efficiency by reducing the number of steps and staff member hours involved in textbook management. The Hayes and Aeries partnership mitigated the need for additional programming to make the two systems talk. The unique partnership between the two like-minded companies was an added benefit for districts who wanted the “Best-In-Breed” software products without having to add programming hours and customization to the bottom line.
