If you’re like a lot of companies, running a check on your assets means clearing your schedule for a stretch. You may be using an Excel spreadsheet to track asset details, like location, value, check-in/check-out status, and maintenance. But those details – and much more – are ever-changing. Is it really possible to keep track of something so fluid on a static document? In a word, no. While you can give it a college try, the reality is that you’re going to miss something. It’s not a matter of if, but when.
Consider the frequency with which your assets change hands. Your IT assets are the best example, though not the only example. A company-issued tablet or laptop is always on the move. Can you access its whereabouts at any given time? Its condition, insurance policy, or the identity of who has it? What about its depreciation in real-time numbers? The inevitable result is a lot of guesswork. And guesswork causes errors – costly errors.
And, of course, IT assets carry with them a considerable risk. They’re expensive to replace, and they’re easy targets for theft. If they’re storing sensitive data that hasn’t been protected, you’re introducing yet another element of risk.
When it comes to checking on any asset, if you’ve been relying on manual processes, your employees all too often end up spinning their wheels while they try to hunt it down. That’s a waste of time, productivity, and money.
The technology eliminates a lot of the hassle and can help restore accuracy and efficiency to your bottom line.
