Whether you’re a global corporation or small nonprofit, physical asset management software is one of the most important investments you can make for your bottom line. Although your IT assets – including hardware and software, monitors, keyboards, mobile devices, A/V equipment and more – are most likely among your biggest-ticket assets, you’re also responsible for maintaining such items as office furniture, office equipment, buildings, perhaps even a vehicle or two. Each year, you’re expected to provide accurate data about each of those assets for accounting and compliance purposes, and failure to do so can be costly.
Most organizations by now have realized that traditional, manual spreadsheets are time-consuming, frustrating and prone to human error and oversight. Reorganizations are a common occurrence, resulting in job transitions and potential neglect of records that require constant maintenance. And it’s all too easy to enter a number into a spreadsheet incorrectly.
The realization of these vulnerabilities and ongoing technological evolution made it possible to take asset tracking online and, finally, to mobile devices. However, a great deal of asset tracking products require hardware and software licenses to use, plus additional hardware, like handheld barcode scanners, which need maintenance and, ultimately, replacement. These services often charge per user. Collectively, these additional requirements translate to higher costs for users.
Asset Panda has taken a decidedly different direction, with a powerful yet simple asset tracking solution offered via free mobile apps and hosted in the cloud. No additional hardware or software is required, no users don’t have to absorb the cost of licenses or carry a separate handheld scanner; the app includes a mobile barcode scanner. Asset Panda customers are entitled to an unlimited number of users at no additional charge. Every Asset Panda account is a premium account, so all of our customers enjoy full access to our robust and completely customizable features list. Our clients also are entitled to an unlimited number of users at no additional charge.
This platform was built to be flexible. It’s based on the philosophy that you should be able to track your assets any way you want. After, no two companies are the same, so a cookie-cutter approach to asset tracking doesn’t work. A custom dashboard, custom fields, quick search capability, custom alerts and notifications, calendar feature, open API, easy integration and configurable security settings based on user locations, roles and field-level permission all make this tool incredible simple to use, despite its status as the most powerful mobile asset tracking platform in the world. No training is required to use Asset Panda; all you need to access the entire lifecycle of each of your vital assets is already in the palm of your hand, using the mobile devices you and your employees already carry.
Asset Panda’s physical asset management software closes the communication loop among stakeholders, increasing both transparency and accountability. In real time, clients know the exact location of each vital asset, who has it and its condition. They can upload images, videos, documents and voice notes to asset data. And they can schedule alerts to stay on top of maintenance, issue work orders, reference an item’s purchase history, lease or insurance information. Use Asset Panda as an enterprise service desk, and reduce the time you’re spending on support calls.
Best of all, with 24-hour-a-day access to real-time information, you can rest easy with the assurance that your data is accurate. Accuracy not only makes reporting for accounting and compliance much, much simpler; it saves you wasted time and wasted money. Unfortunately, all too many companies are over-insured, paying coverage for assets no longer in their inventory. Or, they may be paying for costly repairs or replacement resulting from lack of regular maintenance, which would have enabled them to maximize the lifespan of their equipment.
The bottom line is this: Physical asset management software is an absolute no-brainer for your organization. And you won’t find a more powerful, customizable, cost-effective or user-friendly solution than Asset Panda. See for yourself. Start your free 14-day trial by visiting assetpanda.com
