Mount Royal University Uses LabStats
LabStats helped Mount Royal University (MRU) automate their computer lab usage tracking. Before LabStats MRU would pay lab monitors 8 hours a day to manually track students coming and going from one of their 150 computer labs.
They would also lose a full-time staff member for 1-2 weeks for number crunching and creating graphs to make the data useful. The perception from the manual process was that all the labs were fully utilized. After purchasing LabStats, they were able to find four labs, of around 25 computers each, that were underutilized. Cutting these labs saved the university $25,000 in hardware costs alone and freed up the rooms to be used for instruction.
