College Marks Laptops and iPads To Deter Theft

A THOUSAND laptops and 20 iPads have been marked with Selectamark at Warrington Collegiate in a concerted drive to visibly identify the equipment as belonging to the college and at the same time deter theft.

Nick Smeltzer, Director of IT Services at Warrington Collegiate said: “We used to have laptop tracking software installed but while that is fine for a home user, it’s less than ideal in a corporate environment. Also, any IT literate thief or receiver of stolen goods would simply wipe the laptop before using it!”

He continued: “Therefore, after several incidents of thefts of laptops, we decided to opt for a very visible deterrent and try and make the laptops absolutely undesirable to thieves to start with. Hence, the use of Selectamark.”
