PC Asset Management

Almost universally, organizations across the board have PC asset management needs. In fact, your IT equipment is likely to be among your biggest investments, and you want to keep those items in good working order for as long as possible. At the same time, however, your IT equipment is among your most vulnerable assets. The risk of theft is considerable, whether it’s within the walls of your organization or it happens when your employees travel with their equipment. Manual asset tracking systems, which rely largely on Excel spreadsheets, only compound that risk. Human error and oversight both are extremely common with manual systems. If you want to prolong the life of your PCs and other fixed IT assets, you need to move beyond spreadsheets and use a powerful, cloud-based system to track and manage your equipment. Your organization’s bottom line stands to benefit greatly.

Asset Panda has ushered in new-world asset tracking with a platform requiring only the mobile devices your employees already carry. Free iOS and Android mobile apps sync with the cloud. No additional hardware or software is needed to use Asset Panda. You don’t need a separate handheld barcode scanner; the app includes a built-in scanner. Without the cost of software licenses or separate scanners, your organization saves money from the very beginning with Asset Panda. You’re also entitled to an unlimited number of users at no additional charge, which enables you to close the communication loop among stakeholders and save precious time and frustration hunting down lost assets.

From the palm of your hand, you have access to a PC’s location, who has it and its condition. You can view its check-in/check-out status, monitor its location via GPS and opt for electronic signature to create accountability among stakeholders. Schedule service, issue work orders, and create custom notifications and alerts. Check on the PC’s maintenance history, service contract information/expiration dates, insurance policy and purchase/lease information. Use Asset Panda as an enterprise service desk, and reduce the number of support calls your organization has to manage. It’s also easy to access the information your accounting and compliance departments need, which can save your organization significant revenue. When you have round-the-clock, real-time access to accurate data, you have the assurance that you’re managing your assets efficiently. No more paying for “ghost assets” that aren’t in your inventory anymore, and no more unnecessary replacement charges for equipment that broke down prematurely as result of neglect. Asset Panda empowers your organization to be an effective steward of your most vital assets.

While this tool is hands-down the most powerful mobile asset tracking platform on the market, it’s also incredibly easy to use. No training is required to use the tool; the web and mobile apps were designed with a simple, flexible user interface. A custom dashboard, custom reports, user configurable views, sortable columns, custom fields and quick search are among its intuitive features. Add documents, voice notes, videos or photos to asset information. Because you’re entitled to an unlimited number of users, you may also opt for custom role-based security and/or custom location/area/category security. Data import and export are quick and easy. Email asset details from your mobile device. Assign contacts by location. It’s all within your reach.

Best of all, Asset Panda is always adding more features to our already robust offering. And because every account is a premium account, you receive full access to our entire menu of features. Our philosophy is that you should be able to track your assets any way you want, so you select the features relevant to your specific needs.
