Minnesota State University–Mankato
Mankato, MN | United States
For years, we, the Academic Computer Center, at Minnesota State University, Mankato, had been using a manual headcount system, where every hour a student worker went around to the computer labs and counted how many users were on each workstation. Because we had grown to 30 labs it was becoming impossible to take head counts, so extrapolation became increasingly used. We would take the gathered information, manually key it into a spreadsheet, and then manually generate usage graphs. There were no immediate online statistics and reports were done at the end of the semester.
“LabStats has created a complete, reliable software package that has been extremely well supported and backed by a professional support team.”
We were looking for an automated system that would perform these tasks and considered writing our own system, as well as reviewing and testing other products. None of these options satisfied us. LabStats had just the system we were looking for. Their software was designed with every feature we needed: user tracking, lab usage graphing, and real-time stats.
