The 3rd Annual Forum on Asset Managementwill cover the effective management of business critical assets to reduce costs, maximize efficiency, minimize risk and ultimately stabilize, advance and improve your business
Many organizations simply do not know what fixed assets they own, what shape those assets are in, or where they’re located.In a mid-2013 survey, nearly half of the CFOs polled reported having to periodically write down the value of assets simply because they couldn’t find them. And 80 percent said the ability to better manage fixed assets would offer significant benefits such as increased cash flow and earnings, audits that were more efficient and accurate, and the elimination of unnecessary write-offs.
The 3rd Annual Forum on Asset Management is a cross sector event highlighting real life examples of the implementation and utilization of innovative asset management techniques, tools and standards. Expert speakers will deliver presentations covering real business case studies that outline the ways in which asset management can be effectively implemented and in turn make a real difference to the bottom line!This forum shall appeal to those involved in the acquisition, operation and care of physical assets – especially those involved in asset intensive organizations. Some of the topics to be discussed include:
- Develop your asset management strategy and planning procedures – effectively strategize, mitigate and make the right decisions with the help of an asset management plan
- Consider ways in which costs can be reduced without impacting on safety or productivity, key during this difficult economic climate
- Develop resourcing strategy through better understanding of life cycle costs and the value optimization of aging assets to enable enhanced maintenance decision-making
- Knowing your assets is vital – asset knowledge enablers will identify the next steps – formulate your own asset information strategy through the implementation of standards, detailed information systems to provide quality asset data and assess and best use this information
