If you run an organization of any size, then equipment asset tracking could be your Achilles’ heel. From tracking and maintenance to safety inspections, testing and inventory management, it’s a tall order to keep your equipment in good working order, and know where it is at any given time. If you’ve never considered upgrading your tracking methods from a simple Excel spreadsheet, consider this: Manual tracking procedures leave you vulnerable to theft, loss, waste and higher out-of-pocket costs. Wouldn’t you rather put your valuable resources elsewhere, instead of paying for replacement items, or for repairs that wouldn’t have been necessary if you were keeping timely maintenance schedules? Or paying fines for late inspections? It’s time to get with the 21st Century and adopt an efficient, easy-to-use but powerful solution to your equipment asset tracking needs.
With a good equipment asset tracking system, you can pinpoint at any given time an item’s exact location, who has it and its condition. You’re able to make informed decisions about your equipment inventory and where it should be allocated; for example, if one site has too many pieces of equipment sitting idle, you can assign it to other sites where it’s needed. You’re able to respond to missing or stolen equipment sooner when you have accurate records of all identification numbers – and, at the same time, increased accountability means lower theft and lower costs associated with purchasing new equipment. An efficient tracking system also allows you to keep an up-to-date maintenance history on all of your equipment, ensuring that you stay on schedule with routine maintenance and prevent minor issues from becoming more expensive repairs or even replacement. And your tracking system can help you stay on top of routine inspections.
Which equipment asset tracking system should you purchase? The decision shouldn’t be based merely on cost, though that’s certainly an important factor. You’ll want a system that’s easy to use yet powerful, robust in features but entirely flexible to your business needs. You need an asset tracking system that adapts to how you work, not vice versa.
