Echo Horizon is a Pre-K-6 elementary school located in Culver City, California. Echo Horizon has around 200 students and 50 faculty / staff. Director of Technology, Francisco Felix, oversees a broad technology portfolio at Echo Horizon consisting of Google, Apple and Microsoft solutions. VIZOR was selected by Echo Horizon to centralize their IT asset inventory, manage technology helpdesk tickets, and facilitate their 1:1 program.
VIZOR is efficiently solving IT asset management and ticketing for us, I would be happy to recommend VIZOR to other Schools and Districts.
Technology helps students at Echo Horizon connect, create, and further their learning. Students have 1:1 access to iPads in the classroom and laptops in the school's Technology Center. VIZOR gives Francisco, and his team, visibility to where each device is located. "With VIZOR we know exactly where every IT asset is" remarked Francisco. In addition to end user devices VIZOR is also used to keep an accurate inventory of fixed IT assets such as projectors, printers, and displays. "All of our infrastructure assets, end user devices, projectors and displays and their purchase information is accessible in VIZOR", Francisco Felix.
Students in grades 4 to 6 take their devices home allowing them to work on long term projects and assignments. VIZOR's barcoding functionality simplifies device check-out to students and their check-in on return. At the start of the year VIZOR facilitates the mass allocation of 1:1 devices to students. "With VIZOR it is super simple, we line up all the devices and all we have to do is scan the asset tag, done in seconds" recalled Francisco. To streamline ad hoc loans and returns Echo Horizon has used VIZOR to implement a self-service device check-out kiosk in their Technology Center.
"Before VIZOR it took minutes to check-out each device, it now takes seconds"
Francisco Felix Director of Technology at Echo Horizon
Francisco Felix has utilized VIZOR's unique multi-tenant role-based architecture to grant staff specific access to VIZOR's functionality based on their role within the school. This was made possible through VIZOR's tight integration with Microsoft Active Directory. "I love VIZOR's integration with Active Directory. My goal as Director of Technology is to integrate all our systems to minimise data entry, VIZOR helps me to achieve this." said Francisco Felix.
After a successful rollout managing IT asset inventory and related tickets, Echo Horizon are now looking to expand VIZOR beyond the IT department to include the school's facilities management.
