It’s Time to Bump Asset Tracking and Management to the Top of Your To-Do List

Whether you’re a multinational brand or local nonprofit, asset tracking and management should be one of your top priorities, because it can have a significant and measurable impact on your bottom line. For smaller organizations, asset tracking and management is critical particularly in the realm of maintenance schedules. Most companies have in their inventories some sort of equipment that enables them to generate revenue. Those items require periodic servicing in order to remain in good working order. Without a good asset tracking system, it’s all too easy to overlook maintenance. The result: equipment that breaks down prematurely, or which require replacement. These are costly mistakes – and they’re easily avoidable. Traditional asset tracking and management processes, which involve Excel spreadsheets, are completely manual and error-prone. Asset Panda helps organizations take the first critical step toward the Internet of Things by giving them the capacity to track their equipment using a flexible tool designed to incorporate new technologies as they become prevalent. Whether it’s oversight or a simple typo, a mistake on your spreadsheet also can be expensive. An asset that was stolen or missing may have never been recorded as such. In that scenario, a company might continue paying insurance on that item, commonly referred to as a “ghost asset.” Accounting and compliance teams require depreciation and inflation figures on an annual basis. Relying on Excel spreadsheets can be a risky proposition.

With asset tracking software, companies have been able to make great strides in eliminating errors and increasing efficiency. However, this software can be expensive, requiring companies to purchase additional hardware, including handheld barcode scanners; and software licenses. Additionally, they’re often limited as to how many users they can bring into the loop; if they exceed a particular cap, they’re charged a fee.
