Hardware asset management software serves an indispensable role for organizations of every size. Imagine the task of managing hardware and software assets for a major corporation. Those items are likely to be the most expensive fixed assets within the organization. The record-keeping for hardware and software determines whether hardware or software needs to be updated, whether additional hardware or software needs to be purchased, redistributed elsewhere within the organization or perhaps even phased out of the company’s inventory of fixed assets.
IT assets are frequently changing hands and locations, traveling both inside and outside your building. At every stage in the lifecycle of an IT asset, there’s an opportunity for loss, theft and/or security breach. At the same time, you’re responsible for accessing at a moment’s notice data about that hardware and software; for example, a laptop’s purchase or maintenance history, software licensing information, or an item’s serial number. In terms of time and money, companies simply can’t afford to rely on manual systems that incorporate the use of Excel spreadsheets, which are error-prone at best, or a file folder stuffed with receipts and other paper documents. Nor do you want to be tied to your desk to access the vital information you need to run an efficient business.
The continued evolution of technology introduced hardware asset management software. A large number of products intended to make fixed asset tracking less cumbersome and more accurate. While those products might appear similar on the surface, they vary significantly in terms of features, flexibility, ease of use and price point. Asset Panda offers the simplest, most flexible and user-friendly mobile asset tracking platform on the market, hands down – and at a fraction of the cost of our competitors.
Powered by free mobile iOS and Android apps that sync with the cloud, Asset Panda requires no additional hardware or software to use, only the mobile devices you already carry. A built-in mobile barcode scanner makes it easy to enter new assets, and you can add supporting information like voice notes, videos, documents and photos. Organize your information however you’d like; Asset Panda was built to provide clients with a means to manage their vital assets exactly how they want. Sort columns, create custom fields, create custom notifications and alerts, generate and organize reports, use the app’s GPS feature to track your assets, and track such information as check-in/check-out status, depreciation and inflation, maintenance history, purchase/lease/warranty information, and more.
Asset Panda continually adds to its features offering based on extensive research and feedback from loyal clients. Every Asset Panda account is a premium account, so clients receive access to every one of the features and may select those most relevant to their respective organizations. Best of all, our clients are entitled to an unlimited number of users and have no additional software licensing fees or hardware to purchase, giving them an incredible return on investment. When all stakeholders are brought into the communication loop, accountability, accuracy and efficiency increase. Asset Panda’s hardware asset management software gives our clients back the time they used to waste hunting down lost assets. Our free apps provide a simple, incredibly easy and portable way for employees to pinpoint the exact location of an IT asset in real-time, 24 hours a day. They can schedule maintenance and even use Asset Panda as an enterprise service desk to significantly reduce support call volume.
