Universities and colleges take on the important responsibility to provide students with the necessary equipment they need to fulfill their courses. We have worked with our academic customers to create a solution that makes the management of these resources easy!
Empowering students with a self-service facility, whilst at the same time automating processes, connect2 is perfect for departments who loan out equipment to students on a regular basis. Whether you look after cameras, projectors, or any other equipment, students can make their own bookings without the need for your staff to get involved.
