Every organization, whether large or small, can experience measurable benefits from asset tracking software. Entities with multiple locations, however, probably have the most significant need for such efficiency. When you’re trying to track and manage assets among several sites, the task can be time-consuming, not to mention downright difficult and error-prone. A manual process will leave you vulnerable to costly mistakes, confusion, frustration, and loss. And it’s easy to understand why when you consider the life cycle of your typical asset.
You lease or purchase an asset, assign it to a particular location, and are then charged with its care. The asset likely requires periodic maintenance. It might be reassigned to various employees or departments over time, or even moved to another location to address a need. The asset holds a specific value that must be reported to your accounting and compliance teams each year. It also is attached to an insurance policy, a warranty and perhaps a lease. You need a means to store all of this data and keep up with that asset’s every movement as it occurs. At any time of day – not just during normal work hours – you have to be able to access your data and know that’s it both current and accurate. Companies must have a way to take a look at all of their assets across the board, identify challenges and opportunities, and make more informed financial decisions. They also need a means to communicate with every stakeholder involved in the life cycle of their assets – through one centralized location. Needless to say, relying on pen and paper or an Excel spreadsheet won’t provide any of these efficiencies.
