For an IT professional, keeping up with servers and hardware can be a major challenge. Standing in front of a room full of server cabinets can leave even the most experienced technician with a sense of dread. All that equipment can be overwhelming, especially if you alone are the entire IT team. But if you construct an asset management plan, you may find a few surprising ways to make your job a little easier.
Prepping a New System
As you build a new network, consider documenting everything with Asset Panda. That way, you’ll have your catalog ready for maintenance and referencing over the life of the network.
Keeping a System Current
Physical asset management doesn’t stop once you have your catalog in place. IT professionals have to make sure their servers can handle increasing workloads. With serial numbers, purchase dates and other specific information logged into your Asset Panda app, you can pick and choose which pieces of hardware to replace and what needs maintenance. If you have notes on a troublesome part of the system, you can pull the plug and get a fresh replacement. In the fast-paced world of technology, staying ahead of the curve is essential.
