Office Inventory Management Prevents Issues Before They Occur

For many of us, the need for office inventory management probably becomes obvious only when you run out of a critical item, or when a vital asset is lost or otherwise falls through the cracks. Productivity takes a nose dive, frustration mounts and expenses increase. The irony is that such issues are easily prevented. While you’ve got a lot of moving parts to manage, technology can help you stay on top of that information and enable you to anticipate and avoid bottlenecks and other problems.

Asset Panda’s simple, yet powerful mobile platform centralizes your inventory and asset data. Even better, Asset Panda puts that information within your reach, in real time, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. We invested years of research, development, and testing before launching a flexible, completely customizable office inventory management solution for companies and organizations from throughout nearly every industry. Here’s how it works:

Inventory: What do you need to keep your office running smoothly? Think, paper, toner, printer cartridges and the like. With Asset Panda, you can set up parameters that trigger reorders and ensure that you’re never out of necessities. And, if you’re responsible for stocking, shipping and receiving, the app allows you to anticipate and avoid outages, overstocking and waste. You can move inventory where it’s most needed, and you can plan for seasonal specials and other events that impact consumer demand. When you can examine your inventory needs throughout your organization, you can make more informed financial decisions – and that benefits your company both in the short and long term.

Fixed assets: Your company is full of items that you rely on to conduct your business. Think computers, tablets, smartphones, copiers and printers, furniture, equipment, and tools, to name only a few. Many of those assets – particularly your IT equipment – move throughout your organization and are checked in and checked out to various parties. The opportunity for theft and loss is significant. You’ve also got to keep track of maintenance schedules for most of those assets. Failure to do so can result in a small repair becoming a major overhaul or even premature replacement. Asset management helps you avoid paying for ghost assets. Those are items that aren’t in your inventory anymore due to theft, loss or phase-out, but for which you’re still paying insurance due to inadequate recordkeeping. Finally, the right asset management solution enables you to track the depreciation and inflation of your assets – figures that your accounting and compliance teams require. Without accurate recordkeeping, you begin to rely on guesswork, and that can cost you come tax time. Asset Panda offers a one-stop, centralized location for all of your critical asset data. You can track in real-time any asset as it moves throughout your organization and pinpoints its exact location. Within seconds, you have access to an item’s complete maintenance history, insurance policy information, depreciation figures and so much more.

Our free mobile iOS and Android apps sync with the cloud and include a mobile barcode scanner. That means you won’t need any additional hardware or software to use Asset Panda – only the mobile devices your employees already carry. And, speaking of employees, you can add as many of them as you’d like; Asset Panda clients are entitled to an unlimited number of users at no additional charge. The app is completely customizable, enabling you to display and organize your data in the way that makes the most sense for your organization. Our philosophy is that you should be able to track your assets any way you want and do it simply. The app is incredibly intuitive and user-friendly and requires no special training to master.
