We needed a way to make better decisions on which labs to expand and which to reduce or eliminate. We needed solid reports to prove to administration that some labs were wasting money and some needed to be expanded.
We found LabStats at LabMan and installed it when we got back from the conference. Installation was fairly quick, and we were able to move it to a virtual machine. It helped eliminate one computer lab. I also use it to see how many people are logged in and if lab assistants are there and logged in. This confirms that the lab assistant’s time sheets are correct.
We wanted to know how often software was or wasn’t being used.
LabStats and AppUse
We first tested LabStats in the largest lab on campus, because we knew activity there was high, but there was no accurate way of measuring it. Once we got LabStats up and running we were able to get hard numbers on which computers and applications the students were using. We were able to show the time frame of logins, how many people were at the computers, and how long they were there. We were also able to evaluate which computers were empty and which spots were busy. That information helped us keep our machines evenly spread in places students were actually using them.
We needed to know how frequently the labs were being used and how they were being utilized.
LabStats and LabMaps
LabStats provides us with the necessary information to help us make decisions for our labs. Administration was considering closing down a few labs, but our usage reports showed that those labs were being used often, and that it would be a bad idea to close them. LabStats helps me react to problems quickly and efficiently by allowing me to see when machines go offline, creating maps of the lab (using LabMaps) so students can easily find open computers, and many other things. The tracking that LabStats provides has helped us to prevent problems that would have otherwise left us in the dark.
We needed a means of tracking the usage of the 600+ computers in our public labs.
LabStats and LabMaps
LabStats provided us with user login and duration statistics in our various computer labs so we could demonstrate to administration when and how our labs were being used.
Each of our seven colleges has its own IT department, and each department used a different method of collecting information. This resulted in very inconsistent reporting and nearly unusable data reports. It was difficult for us to determine how the labs were being utilized.
We did a trial run on 100 machines to test LabStats out and see if we liked it. The install and setup was fast and easy. It was obvious that LabStats was the answer to our problems, so we decided to roll it out across campus to standardize the measurement of the computer lab utilization.
Being unconventional, we run into different problems and situations with our labs because we have a different, more varied audience. We needed an automated system to keep track of our stats.
LabStats and AppUse
We have found LabStats to be very useful for our specific needs. We are able to investigate problems with computers that weren’t being used, such as poor conditions of keyboard, mouse, or display; and whether or not a computer is missing software. We use AppUse to see if software that hasn’t been used in a long time can be removed to reduce clutter and maintenance.
We were looking to conserve resources and gain statistical information from our many different lab types across campus. We had not found a suitable solution until we were introduced to LabStats.
LabStats, AppUse and LabMaps
LabStats helped us make decisions for our labs based on computer and application usage by location. The data collected has helped us conserve resources by allowing us to focus our upgrades and support in locations that have high usage or specific application usage. LabStats, AppUse and LabMaps together have helped us improve monitoring and statistics gathering, as well as focus our efforts on better lab management.
Our computers in the library are spread out all over the place and students complained that there weren’t enough PCs. That was not the case. We put up signs to point students in the right direction, but they didn’t work.
LabStats, AppUse and LabMaps
LabStats provided the functionality we were seeking at an affordable cost. Combined with LabMaps, LabStats has enabled us to address the uneven occupancy rates of our computer labs. It has provided us with better usage of our existing equipment and the tools to ensure that we achieve increased usage across all of the student PCs. We’ve also implemented AppUse, which has allowed us to provide data on software usage and make decisions that are not based on anecdotal information. We are very satisfied with our purchase of LabStats and have recommended it to similar institutions locally.
Prior to LabStats we used a manual system of tracking users in our lab. It was inefficient, incomplete and very time-intensive for our computer lab support staff.
LabStats and LabMaps
LabStats has not only provided a live mechanism to allow our students to check availability, but has paid for itself many times over for its complete ability to provide detailed stats on lab usage, times, percentages, the number of students using the lab, and usage trends. We are absolutely satisfied with LabStats and recommend it with no reservations whatsoever. LabStats is a must for ANY computer lab environment, period.
As our labs grew, the process of taking a manual headcount at random times throughout the day became less of a tool for making informed staffing and purchasing decisions, and more of an experienced guess.
We explored several different tools, looking at the ease of setup, deployment, maintenance and pricing. In addition, we wanted a tool that promoted easy data interpretation with dynamic gathering features. LabStats provided all of these attributes with the most economical pricing.
We noticed that certain labs on campus had lines of students waiting for available computers, while other labs elsewhere on campus had open seats. In addition to the inefficient use of the school’s labs, we wanted to gain a better understanding of the usage of specific software licenses.
LabStats, AppUse and LabMaps
The setup and installation went smoothly. We ran a pilot version for 6 months, after which our public access labs were set up with the LabStats suite. LabStats has given us a good picture of how the labs are used and has enabled us to better manage our software licenses. LabStats makes it easy to publish real-time computer lab availability information online so students can easily see which labs have open computers. We are very satisfied with the capabilities of the LabStats suite and recommend LabStats to other universities.
We had no way to track the usage of programs in our labs. Many of our programs were either gifted to us or supported by alumni, so being able to report on their usage was critical. We needed a program that allowed us to track usage in an easy-to-use-format.
LabStats, AppUse, LabMaps and JuicePress
LabStats gave us the ability to deliver valuable and much-needed feedback to the supporters of our lab and help justify funding needs. AppUse helped us pinpoint which applications were necessary. JuicePress has helped us decrease wasted lab time and energy from 72% to 4%. LabStats has been a great asset to our lab and I would highly recommend it to other lab directors.
Our Academic Computer Center had grown to 30 different labs, and it was becoming impossible to take headcounts. We would take that head count information, manually key it into a spreadsheet, and then manually generate usage graphs.
The LabStats software was designed with every feature we needed: user tracking, lab usage graphing, and real time stats. They have created a complete, reliable software package that has been extremely well-supported and backed by a professional support team. They have been great to work with.
I needed to find a way of tracking the applications that students were using.
LabStats, AppUse, LabMaps and Juicepress
With LabStats I was able to take care of my initial problem, and find solutions to others. The ability to provide students with real-time computer lab status was actually one of the features that helped make the decision to invest in LabStats. In addition to helping students know which labs have open seats, LabStats has saved us money on software licenses that we have discovered we just don’t need.
We sought to find a product that would accurately report on both past and real-time information about machine utilization in IT teaching labs. We tried several products, and even tried creating one ourselves, but the results were less than ideal.
LabStats and LabMaps
LabStats was the first product we found that seemed to have been developed to specifically meet our requirements. It worked with Macs, was cost effective, was compatible with our existing infrastructure and used very little bandwidth. LabStats did exactly what we wanted right out of the box. The software installed and worked as advertised in our testing. The product more than paid for itself within the first two months of operation. We’ve already used the reports in LabStats to rationalize and change room usage to better meet student demands.
Our home-grown lab statistics program was high maintenance and we never got a full semester’s worth of data from it.
We were able to get rid of the card system, and move on to a more efficient and accurate way of tracking student logins. LabStats helps us with budgeting, as we can show the administration where, when, and how often labs are being used. It is easy to learn and easy to use. We have 40 labs spread across campus and it’s helped us keep tabs on all of them.
We needed accurate tracking results. We had set up a system where students would swipe their ID cards on their way in and out of a lab, but it was very ineffective and gave inconsistent results.
LabStats and LabMaps
We love the live data in LabMaps, along with the built-in statistics that LabStats provides. The program was up and running with minimal effort. It is easy to use and understand without reading any directions. When I did have a question, I was able to send an email to Support, which got answered immediately and thoroughly.
Our Labs are funded departmentally, so being able to show where specific applications were and weren’t needed in specific labs was important to everyone.
LabStats, LabMaps and AppUse
When it came to budgeting and software decisions, AppUse was a big help. We were interested in seeing the use of our pricier applications. We found ourselves asking how many of those licences we really needed. With over 100 labs on campus, AppUse showed us where money would be well spent and where it would be wasted. LabStats has helped us to run our labs more smoothly, please our students, and make budgeting decisions with each lab in mind.
Students were concerned about computer availability, and we wanted a tool to be able to show them where computers were open or being used.
LabStats and LabMaps
We placed projection screens at the entryway of each building on campus to show maps of our labs to students as they walk in. The lab administrator saw that and wondered how we could provide this same information to our students’ mobile devices. LabStats has become part of our mobile strategy, which includes an app for the iPhone/iPod Touch and a mobile site.
We had no way of organizing and collecting statistics.
LabStats and LabMaps
We have been able to view real-time reports on our labs. LabMaps helped us know how many seats were needed in a lab and justify the number of computers we keep in a lab. It also allows us to see when something is wrong with a computer right away so we can fix the problem in a timely manner. LabStats Support has been great as well. Whenever we talk to them, they always provide great support and have kept all problems to a minimum.
We needed something to give us accurate data. To obtain lab usage statistics, we would do headcounts every half hour. This took a lot of time, and there was a large margin of error.
LabStats has turned manual head-counting into a simple automated task. We are able to get numbers for exactly how many people have utilized our computers, and how many times those users logged in. This has helped us show how often our systems are being used by our patrons. LabStats is one of the best vendors we have dealt with. The support is always quick and helpful, and the products always work as they should. In addition to the good support, each new software release includes new and useful features.
