Schools lose an average of $10,000 dollars in band equipment each year. To take control of the inventory problem, school band directors are using products like iLiD from Instrument Life.
A Band Director can create a free account on instrumentlife.com for their first 500 items. The band director then places iLiD tags on all equipment like seen in the above picture. These tags can be scanned with a smartphone logging the GPS location of the equipment and who has it.
Finally, Band Directors have an affordable simple to learn and use tool to take control of band equipment inventory.
