Purpose

Utilizing the resources at the Technology Resource Center located on the Hill Campus,

All technology hardware purchases will be processed at the TRC.  When a unit arrives, the device is checked into the Hayes Systems inventory, configured with the specific site settings and transferred to the school site.

This allows one centralized location for all manuals, accessories, and images which will reduce the time needed to deploy the hardware on site.

Time Savings:

With a centralized store of computer images, computers and laptops are received and imaged quickly, reducing the time sitting in a tech’s office awaiting hardware configuration.  The device is sent to the school site and requires very little specific configuration.

Hardware that has been escalated for repair can be sent to the TRC and evaluated.  Often times the TRC will have a compatible part in stock that will ensure a quick swap out with in a relatively quick turn around reducing the additional costs of shipping and waiting.

  • The TRC maximizes the value of computers by extending their serviceable lifecycle
