Asset inventory tracking is one of the most important tasks facing any modern organization, regardless of size or industry. Your organization depends upon a large inventory of vital assets every day – from IT equipment and office supplies to furniture and real estate; yet many companies remain unaware of the fixed assets they own. When it comes time to locate one of those assets, what usually occurs is a frustrating search to determine who has the item, if it can be found at all. Once it’s located, if the item has fallen through the cracks, so to speak, it could be in disrepair due to failure to keep it on a regular maintenance schedule. The wasted time and money in this scenario can add up quickly, especially when it reflects a larger issue of poor or absent asset tracking procedures.
Accurate reporting of fixed assets is vital to the health of any organization. Mismanagement has a direct effect on bottom-line revenues. Companies who do have an asset tracking system in place often fall victim to human error, either through reporting inaccuracies or simple omission. That’s because traditional asset tracking procedures typically involve manual entry of items onto Excel spreadsheets. Keeping those spreadsheets up to date is a labor-intensive task, and it might be shared by multiple employees who don’t regularly communicate with one another. Employee turnover and job reorganization could result in missing entries, duplication of effort and/or conflicting information.
