How You Track an Asset Determines Your Bottom Line

How you well you track an asset will determine in large part the lifespan of that item – and how much you spend to maintain it. Apply that truth to all of your fixed assets across the board, and you can understand the potential impact to your bottom line. An efficient, real-time means of tracking and management will maximize the lifespan of your vital assets, helping you keep to a regular maintenance schedule, monitor the whereabouts of that item, utilize its warranty when applicable and significantly reduce the odds of theft or loss.

Companies have attempted to track all of those details and more using manual processes – sometimes with pen and paper, but most often with an Excel spreadsheet. Unfortunately, such methods are highly unreliable. Human error is a frequent occurrence. A typo missed keystroke or simple oversight can throw off your records. Fixed assets must be reported annually for accounting and compliance purposes, and without accurate records, some companies have resorted to guesswork, which can result in mistakes and, ultimately, fines. There’s another reality to consider: The modern business world is doing more than ever with less than ever. Your employees are balancing competing tasks, so it’s challenging to try to keep up with asset records, which contain ever-changing details. Any business that wants to maximize the lifespan of their assets and be good stewards of their investments should consider a way to track each asset using mobile and cloud technology. Luckily, there’s an incredibly powerful, yet easy to use solution that delivers accuracy and peace of mind: Asset Panda.
