Follett Destiny Resource Manager Enhanced With New 1:1 Device User Features


McHENRY, Ill., Feb. 24, 2022 – Follett School Solutions, which has been partnering with K-12 school districts to manage their assets for more than 15 years, has announced new features and capabilities within its resource management platform Follett Destiny Resource Manager. The enhancements will meet up-to-the-minute user needs, especially in response to the significant increase in 1:1 device users.

“It has never been more important for school districts to diligently track and manage their resources, especially with the surge in devices that went home with students during the pandemic,” said Paul Ilse, CEO, Follett School Solutions. “Destiny Resource Manager serves as the hub to provide our customers with a unified, versatile view of all resources in their district.”

Here is a look at the new Destiny Resource Manager features and enhancements:

Digital Signature AgreementsThis accelerates 1:1 device rollouts and general resource distribution. The digital signature agreements allow signatures to be captured online ahead of time or during checkout phase. The consent forms and other approval documents are then stored within Destiny Resource Manager. 

• Mobile Device Management (MDM) Integration. This enhancement allows for an automated data exchange between Follett Destiny and MDM systems, such as Google Workspace (Chromebooks) & Jamf Pro (iOS). Systems can synchronize in real-time, and districts can easily load data on devices into Destiny Resource Manager — saving time and limiting barriers to implementation and usage.

• Destiny Back Office Mobile App Update. This new app brings the power and versatility of Destiny Back Office functionality to iOS and Android devices. Resources can conveniently be checked in or out with mobile devices.  Moreover, school staff can now complete inventories/audits with smartphones or iPads.

• Enriched Reports. Destiny Resource Manager now features Microsoft Power BI-based reporting and a visualization tool set that complements and enhances existing Destiny reports. The Enriched feature allows users to generate a growing set of pre-defined reports.

Ilse noted that 90 percent of Destiny Resource Manager users — more than 25,000 schools — already are customers of the market-leading Follett Destiny Library Manager solution as K-12 educators applaud the power and flexibility of the two systems working in tandem.
