Return on Investment

Computer lab monitoring software quickly pays for itself by bringing usage data to light. With reports on actual software usage, it’s much easier to decide when and where you can reduce unnecessary license counts. Hardware usage reports show when and where students are using computers on campus, making it easier for you to decide which labs can be closed or which machines no longer need to be supported.

“LabStats represents a very good return on the investment.”

Southern Cross University, Queensland, Australia

LabStats has saved universities tens of thousands of dollars by identifying unused hardware and software, providing valuable insights in as little as a few weeks. 

Hardware Savings

The average annual cost to acquire and maintain a university computer is between $800-$1,000. Most schools can eliminate 5-10% of computers without sacrificing service levels–meaning students won’t notice they’re missing. If demand for computers is high in certain labs, moving computers from underutilized labs can save thousands every year.

Software Savings

Software is usually over-deployed to ensure students can find what they need. However, over-deployment of just 3 software packages can add up to tens of thousands of dollars. LabStats can help show you where software is being used, so you can streamline offerings without affecting student perception of availability. Even with conservative estimates, there’s potential for significant savings with LabStats.

“LabStats has paid for itself many times over for our complete ability to provide detailed stats on lab usage.”
