Whether you manufacture, sell or service it, if electronics are your business, you need an asset tracking system for electronic equipment. Within companies, electronic equipment is among the largest investments that management will make. Those items also are quite vulnerable, because they’re on the move both inside and outside of company walls, they carry a relatively high dollar value, and some of them store sensitive company information. Consider how much a single asset moves within your building – from office to office, to conference rooms, offsite at meetings, events, hotels and homes. The opportunity for loss or theft is great. It’s challenging for organizations to monitor all of their electronic equipment and know at any given time where a particular asset is, who has it, when it’s due back to its assigned contact, and what kind of condition it’s in.
A company that wants to manage its assets effectively has to have a means to view them from “up above,” so to speak – to be able to view the movement of all of its assets, determine where assets are piling up and where they’re needed. They have to be able to monitor the maintenance of their expensive electronic equipment, ensuring that regular service and inspections take place so that items don’t break down and require replacement earlier than they should.
In the worst-case scenario, a company that loses a vital electronic asset may not even be aware, and the item could simply fall through the cracks of its inventory. Meanwhile, the company’s security – and, potentially, its customers’ security – could be compromised. And all the while, that company might be paying insurance on a “ghost asset” they don’t even own anymore.
Imagine trying to track your electronic equipment – all of its movement and maintenance, along with each asset’s insurance information and other vital data – from an Excel spreadsheet. If that sounds like a nightmare, you’re right. It is. And a manual system like this simply invites errors, because even the most conscientious employee is going to make a typo from time to time, forget to keep the spreadsheet updated or otherwise lose track of an asset. Nobody can be everywhere. That’s why an asset tracking system for electronic equipment is imperative for accurate, efficient record keeping and management.
