NJIT Launches YETI Property Tracking Inventory System http://www.njit.edu/news/2010/2010-118.php http://www.njit.edu/news/2010/2010-118.phpTue, 13 Apr 2010 00:00:00 -0400 The Department of Public Safety has introduced Your Everything Tracking Inventory (YETI), a secure, user-friendly web app that stores information about valuable property, thus improving the chance of recovery if items are lost or stolen. Members of the NJIT community can enter information such as make, model, and serial number into an NJIT database. In the event that valuables are lost or stolen, police officers will be able to retrieve the description and serial number of the missing property and enter this information into a national database--significantly improving the chances of recovery. "We would like to thank CCS Capstone students Kaushal Patel, David Holl, and Daniel Rose for their participation in creating YETI," said NJIT Director of Public Safety Robert Sabattis.
