Tracking Assets is too Important to Leave to Chance This Year
Tracking assets is a vitally important, yet sometimes overlooked necessity of modern business. You don’t have to be a global corporation or household name to justify the investment in a platform for tracking assets. Every organization, large or small, stands to benefit from the greater efficiencies a good system can provide. Why? Companies have a lot of details to manage. Even the best intentions to manage your assets through a manual system can be derailed by an expected fire that takes precedence. And yet, that’s exactly the process upon which a lot of organizations rely. When you’ve got multiple employees working on the task of tracking assets, it’s incredibly easy for mistakes to occur, whether it’s by duplication of effort, a missed keystroke or typo. Your employees can’t make changes to an Excel document at the same time; nor can they consolidate their changes. You can’t create and issue reports from an Excel document, and you still inevitably spend hours trying to track down lost or stolen items. It’s difficult to track the maintenance histories of your assets, so equipment can easily break down and bring your productivity to a frustrating halt. When it’s time to provide depreciation figures to your accounting and compliance teams, if you’ve been relying on manual tracking procedures, chances are good that you’re providing them with incorrect figures. That can cost you come tax time.
The bottom line is this: It’s not only a headache to put your faith in Excel spreadsheets; it’s expensive in terms of both time and money. Tracking assets don’t have to be difficult. Modern technology allows us to automate this task and improve efficiency, accuracy, and accountability across the board.
