The Potsdam University of Applied Sciences, Germany, maintains several design studios and labs offering the possibility to borrow technical equipment for student projects.
To access the technical equipment in the most effective way, some students were asked to develop and implement a new internal inventory system. This system was supposed to facilitate the lending process and to replace previously used handwritten lists.
“Bonanza” provides a better experience for both the lab supervisors and the students. The clear structure of the system reflecting the lending process and its minimalistic visual design enable lab staff to easily keep track of the inventory. A powerful search helps find the appropriate equipment for student projects across studios. The system also offers email notifications about borrowed items, upcoming or overdue returns as well as a personal overview.
