Turning hassle into happiness, one ‘happy loser’ at a time

“Civic honesty is essential to social capital and economic development.”

To quote Alain Cohn an Assistant Professor of Information at the University of Michigan School of Information who recently conducted research on civic honesty around the globe, “Civic honesty is essential to social capital and economic development.”

With that in mind, your staff go to great lengths to reunite people with their lost items. Why not make their life easier by providing them with the technology they need and deserve?

Lost and found management software is the future of handling lost and found in organisations. So, do you already have a lost and found solution in place? Or better yet, are you already using iLost? If yes, then lucky you!

You as an organisation or your lost and found manager is already taking pleasure in all the features and know-how iLost has to offer. And I think at this point you will agree with me that reuniting people with their lost items has never been easier and faster.
