The right fixed asset software will do so much more for your business than just help you track your vital assets. It will give you and your employees back invaluable time, save you considerable frustration, increase accountability throughout your organization and protect your bottom-line revenues. Companies – especially large and/or fast-growing companies – may have multiple employees responsible for the task of tracking and managing fixed assets. It’s not difficult to see how this setup invites duplication of effort, oversight and error, which can be costly for a multitude of reasons. Under a mismanaged system, assets can easily become lost or stolen, unbeknownst to the company. You could be paying insurance on items that aren’t in your inventory anymore. Your accounting and compliance teams require information about your fixed assets, and if that data is inaccurate, your organization could face penalties. When it comes time to track down an asset – for example, a laptop computer or a scanner – if your tracking system is subpar, your employees could spin their wheels for hours trying to locate it. The opportunity for waste is tremendous.
Asset Panda has ushered in a new era of asset tracking that puts the entire lifecycle of every one of your fixed assets into the palm of your hand. Using the mobile devices you already carry, you can create a custom workflow for each asset, detailing everything from its initial lease or purchase to its periodic maintenance and, ultimately, retirement. Based on free mobile iOS and Android apps that sync with the cloud, you have access 24 hours a day, seven days a week to real-time information, so you can make informed decisions. The app includes a mobile barcode scanner for easy asset entry. Add documents, voice notes, videos or photos to assets, if you’d like. You’re able to view check-in/check-out status, view location through the app’s GPS feature, schedule service, manage asset depreciation, and even reduce your support call volume when you use Asset Panda as your enterprise service desk. This extremely powerful, yet simple-to-use tool adapts to how you work; it’s completely customizable, from its dashboard to its display. Years of research, development and client feedback are behind Asset Panda’s world-class platform. Every account is a premium account – you have full access to the entire suite of features and select those that are relevant to your business. And because you’re entitled to an unlimited number of users, you can close the communication loop among all of your stakeholders – and increase accountability, accuracy and efficiency, saving both time and money.
Asset Panda also gives your organization a leg up on our data-driven society. All of us are moving toward what’s referred to as the Internet of things, a scenario in which everyday objects are embedded with sensors, electronics, software and network connectivity that allow those objects to collect and exchange data. We’ll soon live in a world where nearly every item in our homes and offices is microchipped for identification and tracking purposes. Industry experts and CIOs haven’t pinpointed when IoT will be effective; they only know it’s coming. Asset Panda is uniquely positioned for that forthcoming reality, having established a configurable platform that tracks, manages and stores information and keeps everyone – equipment owners, equipment support and end users – in constant contact. Asset Panda helps organizations take the first critical step toward the Internet of Things by giving them the capacity to track their equipment using a flexible tool designed to incorporate new technologies as they become prevalent.
No training is required to use this platform; it was designed to be deceptively simple despite the complexity of its features offering and capabilities. And, because you don’t need additional hardware or software to use Asset Panda, the return on investment beats our competitors hands-down.
