IT Inventory Software Curbs Theft, Loss

Tracking, monitoring and maintaining your IT inventory software can be an enormous task – particularly if you’re a large organization with multiple offices. These days, you’re hard-pressed to find any employee who doesn’t need some kind of company-issued technology, whether it be a smartphone, laptop or desktop computer, tablet, printer, monitor or something else. Your IT assets represent some of the biggest-ticket items in your company’s possession. And, obviously, you want to maximize their lifespan through proper care and maintenance and the prevention of theft or loss. It’s very difficult to do this when you’re relying on antiquated manual systems. Why? You can’t escape the human element.

If you’ve put an employee or employees in charge of an Excel spreadsheet, it’s only a matter of time before an error occurs. It could be anything from a missed keystroke, simple typo or understandable oversight – after all, your employees have many things on their plates over the course of an average week. Regardless of the cause, even a simple mistake can throw off your record keeping. What often results is an unreliable spreadsheet that fails to provide the information you need when you need it; nor can you count on its accuracy. Your employees then waste time trying to hunt down lost assets. Frustration, guesswork and lost revenue then occur.

Without proper monitoring and maintenance, your minor repairs become expensive repairs – or, worse, premature replacements. In perhaps one of the worst-case scenarios, a lost or stolen asset may simply fall through the cracks, so to speak, remaining unreported while a company continues to pay insurance on the “ghost asset.” Another potential problem: Your accounting and compliance teams require that you provide the values of your assets. Guesswork could result in fines or at the very least, overpaying on your taxes. The need for IT inventory software – whether you’re a small or large organization – is clear.
