Tracking Assets is Vital for Your Company. Here’s Why

Tracking assets is no longer optional – if you’re looking to be a good steward of your resources, that is. The complexity of the task increases, of course, as a company expands its presence across multiple locations, hires additional staff and acquires more equipment. But, even if you’re working within a small organization, you’re going to have fixed assets – like computers, monitors, mobile devices, printers, office furniture and much more – that enable you to conduct your daily business successfully.

Every one of those fixed assets, particularly your IT equipment, is likely to require periodic maintenance. Those items also may be on the move from one employee to another, going from office to conference room, home to hotel room. They require insurance policies. They may become lost or stolen. All of them need to be accounted for, serviced and reported come tax time. When these assets aren’t maintained on a regular basis, what would have been a minor repair can become a major overhaul or even premature replacement. If accurate, timely records aren’t kept on those assets, you might also find yourself playing a guessing game when your accounting and compliance teams need such information as depreciation figures. And if you’re not able to track an asset’s movement throughout your organization, what happens when you need an item now? All too often, guesswork, frustration and wasted time. Every organization, large or small and regardless of industry, has a responsibility to take good care of its resources. When you don’t have to pay for expensive repairs, retire equipment early or replace broken or stolen assets, you can channel your valuable resources where they’re most needed: for the production and distribution or your products or services, and to providing excellent service for your customers. Every dollar counts when you’re trying to stay ahead of the competition.

The challenge with tracking assets is that you’re busy. Day-day priorities get in the way of your ability to maintain ongoing, real-time and accurate records – even if you designate an employee or employees to handle the task.
