Manage Your Budget and Improve Student Outcomes

88% of districts are making this costly mistake when deploying mobile devices.

Cabinet vs Top-Loading-1

Most schools have deployed some level of mobile device program, but what many fail to realize is that one of the largest components that can make or break a deployment is the charging cart or station. If your school is currently utilizing or purchasing low-cost cabinet style carts, you're not alone.

In fact, 88% of districts make the same costly mistake when deploying mobile devices. Tight budget constraints and deprioritization of charging make this the logical choice. After all, it is just a charging cart, right? If improving student outcomes through technology and maximizing a balanced budget truly are two key objectives for your school or district, it's worth your while to reconsider the importance of charging solutions to help you reach your goals.

Ask yourself these critical questions:

Lining Up vs. Learning

How valuable is class time to you?

One cabinet-style cart can gobble up 70+ hours of class time per year, simply in passing out and collecting devices. What seems to be a small part of a complex project isn't so small after all. Imagine what your students could accomplish with two extra weeks of class time per year.

Are you working within tight budget constraints?

When you factor in the amount of time that's wasted on cabinet-style carts, a durable, top-loading and open-concept charging cart proves to be the most budget-friendly option. Each LocknCharge cart saves enough time to equate to $2,100 in teacher wages per cart each year–which means you're paying teachers to teach, not to manage time-consuming mobile tech deployments.
