Professional Services

Utilizing more than 100 years of combined experience, our services team will provide inventory control related services that are proven to increase efficiency, mitigate risk and decrease costs. From long time clients to brand new customers, Hayes Software Systems offers consulting and staffing services designed to achieve inventory control goals by addressing key challenges administrators face daily.

We aim to deliver a lasting solution by implementing a strong strategic foundation. Combining change, program, and performance management with staff professional development, our team will provide you with long-term, actionable plans to address the inventory control challenges you are facing.

Everything starts with a problem that needs solving. Our approach is about getting to know your district; understanding your mission and your goals to craft a solution that meets your specific needs. 

We know every school district manages their instructional resources differently, from each deployment of technology devices to instructional material accountability procedures. As former educators, Hayes service team members have extensive experience navigating district policy to provide insightful solutions to challenging circumstances.

What problems are you facing?

Our solutions are designed to align with key problems faced by district administrators.  Addressing the following core action areas can streamline district processes and provide an efficient vehicle to achieve your district’s strategic vision.

Acquisition Process

Central access to real-time data is paramount to the purchasing process of school districts – our process management and planning guidance is designed to outline a suitable inventory request and approval process designed to maximize existing investments and provide for advanced ordering capabilities.

Data Quality

Without accurate data, administrators aren’t able to make confident, informed decisions or respond to reporting needs – our quality assurance assessment will identify areas of risk, improvement, and core best practices needed for data accuracy.

Asset Location

Operational resources are inevitably going to move around within your buildings, and sometimes around your district.  Items purchased with specific grant money, E-Rate, or federal funds such as Title I must remain at their specified campuses – our policy and procedure discovery sessions are designed to evaluate your current program and develop practices to ensure items are accounted for appropriately.

Consulting

Policy and Procedure Development

Align people, process, and technology with your strategic priorities. It also increases efficiency across the board, so your organization can focus resources on activities with the highest value.

Change Management

People are the most important and are often overlooked as part of any technology initiative. HSS consultants can help districts successfully adopt new mindsets, processes and technologies to help staff make the transition successfully.

Process Improvement

All organizations need effort to improve and achieve goals on a continuous basis. Hayes Software Systems is committed to working with you long term to help you succeed. HSS consultants will check in with you periodically to make sure you are achieving your goals, and provide any additional consulting or documentation needed.

Inventory Reconciliation

Creating a baseline inventory, validating existing asset listings, and tagging new or existing assets can be an overwhelming and time consuming process. Allow your district to focus on the implementation of TIPWeb while HSS addresses the more labor-intensive processes. Let our expert team and experienced consultants discuss your specific needs and meet the unique goals, timeline, and budget of your district.
