Our Commitment to Educators During COVID-19


We have been closely monitoring the updates surrounding COVID-19, and our hearts go out to all those who are being affected by it. With the health and safety concerns of students and staff, many universities are in the process of transitioning to online-only classes, and many more plan to do so in the coming days.

At LabStats, we partner with institutions of higher education all over the world and care deeply about educators and their ability to serve students. Our aim is to help make the transition process to online classes as simple and effective as possible. To support campus efforts and help students and staff connect with the resources they need, we have decided to waive all setup fees for the next 30 days.

If your COVID-19 contingency plan includes allowing users to log into hardware on campus remotely with programs like Remote Desktop Connection, or if you have already transitioned to online instruction, we can help you show users which resources are currently available, allowing students to take full advantage of lab resources from the comfort and safety of their homes.

LabStats is a cloud-based client installed on campus computers that tracks when, where, and how long computers are used—whether in person or remotely. LabStats also tracks software usage and can share live availability of computer resources on campus with students, no matter where they are.

As news surrounding COVID-19 continues to emerge, we’re here to help you in your efforts to serve students and staff and to help them feel connected to campus life.

Please let us know if we can answer any questions or help in any way.

With support and gratitude,

–The LabStats Team

LabFind—a mobile app that guides students to campus technology


  • LabFind enables students on any campus to search for and navigate to campus resources, such as computers, printers, projectors, whiteboards, group study space and more, live in real-time.
  • With LabFind, university IT administrators can add directions to campus technology resources right where students expect them: on their phones.
  • LabFind positively impacts the experience students have on-campus—discovering campus resources is no longer challenging. This greatly benefits new students, international students, non-traditional students, campus commuters, students who require accessibility resources and other student groups with outstanding access needs.
  • LabFind requires no coding and can be set up in as little as 5 minutes on campuses that are using LabStats monitoring software.

Idaho Falls, Idaho — Today LabStats released LabFind, an entirely new mobile app for college students that allows them to easily navigate to campus technology resources such as computers, printers, projectors, whiteboards, group study spaces and more. LabFind is powered by LabStats, a market-leading IT monitoring tool that first launched in 2004 and has been used by thousands of universities around the world.

Students can simply download the LabFind app onto their phones (Android and iOS), verify their association with a college campus and begin searching for technology resources on that campus. While many students will simply want to find the nearest available computer, LabFind’s search functionality allows students to specify resources that best meet their needs. For example, a student who requires a specific photo editing software or a particular statistics package can refine their search parameters to navigate to the exact computer stations where that software is available.

“We expect that LabFind will empower lT teams to improve students’ access to critical digital tools and workspaces with far less waste,” John Felushko, Product Manager at LabStats said. “With LabFind providing transparency to students and LabStats providing rich information about usage behavior, IT teams can quickly make resources available where and when they will have the largest impact on student success.”

LabFind is available now, for free, for all students of universities who are LabStats cloud customers. After a simple 5-minute setup process, LabFind is ready for use on opted-in campuses.
