WHY BRETFORD?
With the security and asset management capabilities provided by TechGuard Connect Lockers, this East Coast health care clinic is no longer concerned with misplaced or stolen laptops. The money that was used for laptop replacements is now diverted back into community health programs to help more individuals.

THE CHALLENGE

This health care clinic’s IT Department lent laptops based on an honor system using sign-in/sign-out cards. This method required little responsibility by the user and caused difficulty for IT staff in keeping track of each laptop. Additionally, the laptops were housed in a filing cabinet that was easily accessible by passersby, offering no security to mobile devices worth thousands of dollars. With little accountability and security, laptops went missing and replacements were purchased out of necessity.

THE SOLUTION

Bretford’s TechGuard Connect® Lockers were chosen to deliver a secure, streamlined and trackable system. Featuring individual locker bays and cloud-based centralized management, IT personnel are now able to track which authorized users are borrowing laptops and how many remain available, providing accountability and traceability.
