The Challenge

Let’s set the scene by taking you directly to Zurich, the most populous city in Switzerland. Imagine strolling through charming cobblestone streets or soaking up the sun by the blue waters of the local lake, Zürichsee. The city is unique, blending industrial elements with natural beauty. It’s within this landscape, in the heart of Zurich’s third district, Wiedikon, that you’ll find the Cantonal School of Wiedikon.

The Swiss educational system is designed so that multiple generations, from primary school to secondary II (ages 4 to 18), coexist in a single cantonal school. To fulfill its mission of educating and preparing students for the world, Kantonsschule Wiedikon (KWI) relies on a wide range of resources: human, pedagogical, and material. Our focus here is on their material resources. The challenge for this outstanding institution was to manage their entire inventory, starting with their IT equipment. But it doesn’t stop there—the number of assets KWI must manage is rather significant. Therefore, the school needed a modular solution that could adapt to the specific needs of the school, while also being intuitive, simple, efficient, and accessible from any device: a cloud-based inventory management solution.

The Solution

In its search for the perfect solution, the Cantonal School of Wiedikon found Timly and chose its comprehensive asset management capabilities. Although KWI has only recently started using Timly, they have already laid a solid foundation for a thorough asset tracking system. First, the school established a sound foundation for their inventory management by creating digital aliases for its various rooms: classrooms, offices, etc. The goal? To organize everything and digitally assign assets to their respective rooms. With just a click, the teams can allocate and schedule equipment.

Given the extensive range of assets at the school, they organized their structure accordingly by creating numerous root categories in Timly for IT equipment, furniture, the chemistry department, the media library, and more. They created as many categories as needed to effectively structure their assets digitally. KWI further optimized this structure by creating subcategories to streamline asset organization. This clear inventory structure in Timly ensures that all assets and actions are centralized, providing KWI with a solution that allows them to focus directly on what matters most: their inventory.
