Regardless of your industry or the size of your organization, asset management inventory software can deliver significant efficiencies to your bottom line. The terms “asset” and “inventory” are often used interchangeably, although, in reality, they describe different things. Inventory represents the goods a company sells to turn a profit. That inventory must be tracked and managed so as to avoid sell-outs, excess or outdated inventory. Assets, meanwhile, are fixed and enable a company to make money – in other words, sell its inventory. Those assets have a value that either increases or decreases with time and must be reported each year for accounting and compliance purposes. Additionally, assets require routine maintenance and in some cases move throughout your organization, among offices, conference rooms, homes, hotels, event venues and other locations. The opportunity for loss and theft is significant. And we’re talking about more than just theft of the device itself. The information stored on those devices could also be stolen, potentially compromising your security and that of your clients/customers.
Now imagine trying to track and manage all of these moving parts using an Excel spreadsheet and a handful of employees. It’s not the recipe for success. Even leaving out the very possibility of human error or oversight, a manual spreadsheet doesn’t enable you to house and access your data in real time. Nor does it allow you to do high-level analysis, issue reports and share recommendations in a meaningful, relevant way with your colleagues. Asset management inventory software solutions are plentiful, although, with a little research, you’ll find quite a few differences among them.
First, price point. If you need additional hardware, software and associated software licenses to use the product, it stands to reason that your costs go up. If you’re limited to a set number of users for the product, after which the price increases, there’s another factor to consider.
Second – and this may be most important – ease of use. If your asset management inventory software isn’t intuitive, your employees won’t use it. They’re busy enough as it is. For maximum buy-in, you must have a product that’s user-friendly and lowers or even eliminates the intimidation factor.
Third – is flexibility and customization. Steer clear of products that don’t allow you to display, track and manage your inventory exactly how you want. No two companies are the same, so your asset management inventory software should adapt to how you work – and continue to adapt as your needs change in the future.
