Free equipment tracking software can be a real game-changer if you’re still stuck in the world of Excel spreadsheets stuffed into a binder in your desk. Your equipment may spend much of its time on the move, shuffled around your organization to various locations. Some equipment may even be sitting idle, unbeknownst to you. An item might require maintenance or even replacement, but unless your equipment tracking is in an accurate, real-time format, it’s all too easy to miss these details – and that can add considerable expense to your bottom line. Nobody wants to have to replace equipment early because it was poorly maintained.
With manual asset tracking, the odds are definitely not in your favor for maintaining accuracy. It’s downright difficult if not altogether impossible to avoid the likelihood of human errors like an incorrect keystroke, duplication of effort, guesswork and plain old oversight. After all, each work day is busy enough without having to keep track of your most vital equipment – an effort which usually results in wasted time and lots of frustration. Free equipment tracking software gives you your time back while vastly increasing your overall efficiency. At a moment’s notice, you know exactly where a piece of equipment is and who has it, as well as details about its present condition. You’re able to make informed decisions about the biggest investment your organization is likely to have.
That said, you’d be wise to read up on various free equipment tracking software products before you commit to anyone. Every organization has different needs when it comes to equipment tracking, so you’ll want to steer clear of any product that doesn’t allow you flexibility over how you display and organize your data. Your software should adapt to the way you work. Additionally, you’ll want to find a product that allows for customization, again supporting the way you prefer to work. Ease of use, too, is an absolute must. Ideally, you want buy-in and participation of your equipment tracking from every stakeholder in your organization. Those stakeholders have varying levels of technological knowledge, and they simply don’t have the time to sit through extensive software training. If the system is too hard, they won’t use it.
Your software should be powerful and yet streamlined in terms of what you need to use it. Some software products will require additional hardware and various licenses to use; and some will cap the number of users you may add, charging you a fee for additional users. Those charges can add up quickly.
