Your laptop computers are always on the move – and that’s why laptop asset tracking is so vital for companies who strive to be good stewards of their resources. Along with your other IT equipment, your laptop computers are probably among the biggest investments you make for your organization. They’re also among your highest-risk assets, often storing sensitive data that could be compromised in the event of theft. And theft can occur at any time, inside or outside the walls of your company. Technology research firm, Gartner estimates that a laptop is stolen every 53 seconds.
Of course, you want to get maximum mileage from the laptops currently in your inventory. If you’re a larger organization, and you need to make informed decisions about purchasing and allocation of IT resources, a powerful, efficient and accurate laptop asset tracking platform is a must. Perhaps you have laptops sitting idle at one location, while employees in another location are in need. Real-time asset tracking would give you access to that information and prevent you from making an unnecessary purchase.
Companies of every size would be wise to consider a reliable laptop asset tracking system. However, if you’re a larger organization with multiple locations, you simply can’t afford not to invest in technology that will help you manage and track your laptops and other IT equipment – comprehensively, and in real time. It’s nearly impossible to keep accurate records of your IT assets with a traditional, manual process (think Excel spreadsheets). A spreadsheet doesn’t give you the big picture of your assets as they’re on the move. And most manual processes won’t be so granular as to include such data as GPS location, maintenance history, depreciation figures and other detailed information.
Thanks to mobile technology, however, you don’t have to rely anymore on such outdated systems. You can save significant and measurable time and money while tracking all of your vital assets at any time, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, from the palm of your hand. Asset Panda’s free mobile iOS and Android apps eliminate the need for any additional hardware or software and put the entire lifecycle of every one of your assets into the palm of your hand. The app includes a mobile barcode scanner for easy asset uploading, after which you can add photos, documents, voice notes or videos. Within seconds, you have at your fingertips such information as a laptop’s location, condition, the identity of the person who has it, its GPS coordinates, insurance and lease/purchase information, depreciation information and maintenance history, among many other details. You can add as many users as you’d like at no additional charge, which raises the bar on accountability and accuracy throughout your organization. Schedule maintenance, create work orders, even use Asset Panda as an enterprise service desk to cut down on your support call volume.
