If you’re looking to promote greater efficiency in your organization, consider asset management software. Chances are good you’ve been relying on a manual system to track your assets, which unfortunately is subject to human error. As you start examining the software market, what kind of features should you be looking for, and how do you weed out the best from the pack?
First, think mobile. Your business doesn’t stay at the office anymore – it travels with you – and so should your asset tracking capabilities. With the convenience of a mobile asset tracking system, you’re able to track, manage and support your assets from anywhere. Asset Panda offers an extremely powerful, yet simple to use platform that incorporates free mobile iOS and Android apps that sync with the cloud. That provides our clients with the assurance that their data is real-time and accurate, and they have access to it 24 hours a day. They’re also entitled to an unlimited number of users, which effectively closes the communication loop among stakeholders.
Second, ease of use is critically important. If your asset tracking system is too difficult to navigate, employee adoption won’t be at the level you need it to be. Asset Panda requires no training to use – it’s that simple. All that’s required to use it are the mobile devices your employees already carry. Our free mobile apps include a barcode scanner, so there’s no need to purchase separate handheld scanners. The user interface is streamlined, includes a custom dashboard and quick search feature, and allows for instant access to asset locations, depreciation and inflation costs, maintenance schedules, purchase/lease information and so much more. Open API allows for easy integration with any other software you might currently be using. It’s simple to move data to and from other applications into the Asset Panda tool.
Third, look for asset management software that allows for complete customization and flexibility. Asset Panda was built on the philosophy that our clients should be able to track their assets any way they want. No two companies are the same, so why would a “one size fits all” approach work for asset management? Since Asset Panda’s inception, we’ve strived to introduce on a continual basis additional features that empower our clients to track their assets in the way that makes the most sense for their unique needs. Customize every data field to reflect your organization’s structure. Create your own notifications, alerts, reports, and electronic signature, insert important information into the calendar feature, sort columns and edit the dashboard as you see fit. You also can upload voice notes, videos, images and documents applicable to your assets. Asset Panda’s asset tracking routing software allows you to track your equipment when it leaves your premises and determine how long it took for those assets to transfer between locations. In an effort to streamline workflows and reduce the likelihood of errors, we offer our clients user configuration capability, so they can manage the locations to which your employees have access. And, when you use Asset Panda as an enterprise service desk, that helps greatly reduce your call volume.
Fourth, look for a product that can deliver significant return your investment. With Asset Panda, every account is a premium account, so you have access to our full suite of features. Because our platform is based on free mobile apps that sync with the cloud, you don’t have the fees associated with hardware and software and their associated licenses. You receive unlimited users and unlimited flexibility, plus the assurance of Asset Panda’s support staff anytime you need them. You won’t find a more powerful asset management system on the market for a better value.
