API-driven integration streamlines spare K-12 device distribution and monitoring with LocknCharge FUYL Towers
Atlanta, November 15, 2022
Incident IQ, the workflow management platform built for school districts, released an integration with LocknCharge—a leading manufacturer of smart lockers that charge, secure, and manage mobile classroom technology such as laptops, tablets, iPads and Chromebooks. With this integration, technicians can easily assign LocknCharge Smart Locker bays for students, staff, and teachers to exchange and pick up mobile devices.
This integration between Incident IQ and LocknCharge helps schools easily distribute working devices to students and staff. When a user submits a help ticket for a lost or broken device, technicians can quickly assign a functioning device directly from the Incident IQ help ticket. Once the user has received the location of a LocknCharge FUYL Tower and a unique PIN code, they can easily retrieve their loaner device.
This integration not only streamlines device assignment workflows, but it also improves device visibility for IT teams. Every step of the process is logged within Incident IQ—providing K-12 IT teams with a detailed timeline of each step of a device swap. Furthermore, districts can utilize LocknCharge’s secure lockers to dispense technology accessories, paperwork, and more.
“With more devices in the field than ever before, this integration is a great solution for reliably distributing devices to students and teachers,” said Jorgen Von Tangen, VP of Apps & Integrations. “LocknCharge FUYL Towers offer secure access points to drop off and pick up new devices. Our mission at Incident IQ is to support teaching and learning, and having a working device is essential to that goal. This partnership between Incident IQ and LocknCharge keeps functional devices in students’ hands and delivers detailed asset visibility for IT teams.”
“Together, the integration between LocknCharge Smart Lockers and Incident IQ enables end-to-end device management by automating the physical distribution and collection of devices,” said LocknCharge owner and CEO, James Symons.
“Contactless self service saves IT teams, educators, and students significant time every day by providing secure, 24/7/365 access to loaner devices. Given the importance of technology to learning, streamlining this process reduces device downtime to minutes ensuring students don’t fall behind in class.”
The LocknCharge integration for Incident IQ is available for districts using LocknCharge Smart Locker Solutions.
