Choosing the Best Free IT Asset Management Software for Your Organization

free-asset-management-software-header
Finding a good free IT asset management software product is a smart plan for any organization, but you’ll want to read the fine print before you commit. Some products require additional hardware to use – for example, separate handheld barcode scanners, which are not only expensive, but also require periodic maintenance and, ultimately, replacement. If you’ve got an eye on your budget, the price point for these scanners can limit how many stakeholders you bring into your asset tracking process. And, when it comes to asset tracking, the more stakeholders you can involve, the better. IT assets are likely one of the biggest investments you’ll make. From a financial and productivity standpoint, you can’t afford to be in the dark about the whereabouts or condition of your IT equipment.

Another point to consider: How easy is the software to use? If you’re aiming to bring multiple employees into the asset tracking process – and they each have their own respective levels of technical proficiency – you want asset management software that’s simple and intuitive. If it’s too difficult to translate, your employees won’t use it, period. And, although you want the software to be easy to understand, you also want it to be powerful and flexible. Your software should be capable of tracking and managing rich data about your IT assets. You should be able to organize, customize, share and display that data exactly how you want – in the way that makes the most sense for your business. Further, you should be able to access that data anytime, day or night, with the assurance that you’re seeing real-time, accurate data on which you can depend.

This isn’t just a wish list … such a product does, in fact, exist. Asset Panda was founded on the philosophy that because no two organizations are the same, a “one-size-fits-all” approach to asset tracking simply won’t work. Following extensive research, development and testing, Asset Panda launched the most powerful, yet easy to use mobile asset tracking system available. No additional hardware, software or software licenses are required to use Asset Panda – only the mobile devices your employees already carry. Asset Panda is powered by free mobile iOS and Android apps that sync with the cloud and include a mobile barcode scanner. Clients are entitled to an unlimited number of users at no additional charge and receive full access to Asset Panda’s entire features list, which continues to expand on a continual basis. Current features include custom notifications, alerts and reports; sortable columns; custom fields; the ability to track depreciation and easily and quickly pull the data that your compliance and accounting teams require; mobile GPS; the ability to use Asset Panda as an enterprise service desk, saving you significant support call volume. From the palm of your hand at any time of day or night, you have instant access to any IT asset’s location, check-in/check-out status, its condition, lease/purchase information, insurance policy and maintenance history. You can also create work orders and schedule maintenance on the spot with Asset Panda. Thanks to these efficiencies, you save time and money while increasing accountability throughout your organization – and, depending upon your business model, potentially raising the bar on your customer service.
