In this day and age, with so many moving parts, it makes sense to simplify your processes whenever possible – and that’s why inventory asset management software can make a real difference for your bottom line.
Let’s start with inventory, which we usually associate with products that a company sells to customers. From both a customer service standpoint, you never want to find yourself in a run-out situation; nor do you want to have excess inventory you can’t sell. You want to be able to anticipate gaps or shortages and provide a system that promotes accountability among your staff. If you’re a large-scale organization, you want to be able to take an overarching view of your inventory and be able to make informed decisions about replenishment and reallocation when it’s necessary. You also want a means to track receiving so that nothing falls through the cracks. And you’ll need a system that enables you to create and issue reports. Finally, you need access to real-time data, so that your records are updating as items move in and out of your inventory. Inventory is fluid, after all, so anything less than real-time is merely guesswork.
Asset management refers to the resources, tools and equipment on which a company relies to do business. They remain within an organization for an extended period and must be reported for accounting and compliance purposes. Fixed assets may move inside and outside an organization’s walls. A great example is IT equipment, like laptops, tablets and smartphones. Employees carry those items around the building, take them home, to offsite meetings, business trips, training and events. The opportunity for theft or loss is enormous, and it’s not just the physical asset that’s at risk. On many occasions, those devices are carrying sensitive data that can compromise your security if it’s stolen. Companies need a way to monitor all of their fixed assets at any time of day – to be able to track their exact whereabouts, return date, value, maintenance history and more.
Technology has made it possible for the business world to graduate from manual, one-dimensional spreadsheets, which are error-prone at best.
