Do you find that you shudder a bit when you think about your contribution to your company’s bottom line? Could you do your job more efficiently if you had the right tools? Would a better technology partner save you time and/or money? Sometimes it takes trial and error to find a partner who is flexible and customizable and will be willing to change as you and your business changes. The same can be said for technology. Finding a fitting tool system for financial inventory can definitely be a challenge – especially when tracking assets are your main focus. The data you record and report can have an immediate impact on your business as a whole.
One of the key elements in any tool a business utilizes for financial inventory management should be ease of use. If a software program is too difficult, employees don’t want to use it. Technology changes are stressful enough. If a program is too complicated to understand or if it is going to require hours and hours of training, then it isn’t a good fit for you. You need everyone to be on board and ready to make the change together. Asset tracking is a job that can be time-consuming alone … adding more hours to an already arduous task isn’t the solution.
Everyone wants to think of their company as forward thinking. You can’t do that using tools from the past. For companies using shared electronic spreadsheets (like Excel documents), it’s time to hit “save” and move on. Excel documents simply don’t have the capabilities and options that today’s asset tracking and management programs have. They are not what you’d consider a fitting tool system for financial inventory – or for any type of inventory tracking. There are too many opportunities for errors. And costly errors add up. From a financial standpoint, determining the actual value of your assets and evaluating other influential factors can take hours. You want to save time in determining the assets your company uses and how they are beneficial. Many programs available don’t save you time. In fact, they add time with confusing screens, set programs that don’t work with your business structure, or nearly impossible ways to integrate existing data into the new system. Simplicity, ease of use, easy integration are so important and make a once daunting task easier to handle.
Hands down, Asset Panda is the tool system for financial inventory you need to get your business on the right path to tracking success.
