How a State Government Agency
Revolutionized IT Asset Management
with Asset Panda
A prominent State Government Agency, renowned for its commitment to innovation and progress, faced numerous hurdles in managing and tracking its vast IT assets. Its initial system consisted of Excel spreadsheets and Lansweeper software, both of which proved to be less than ideal. The agency's main workflows revolved around assigning assets to employees, changing asset locations, conducting repairs, maintaining assets, and disposing of IT assets, all of which were notably cumbersome without a government asset management system.
Before they discovered Asset Panda, the State Government Agency grappled with a range of challenges:
- Inadequate Asset Tracking: The combination of Excel spreadsheets and Lansweeper for tracking didn't contain accurate, up-to-date information about all their assets, limiting their ability to make informed decisions.
- Complex Workflows: The process of assigning assets to employees, transferring their locations, overseeing repairs and maintenance, and disposing of assets was laborious and time-consuming.
- Limited Visibility: The lack of a centralized platform made it difficult for the team to have an overall view of their IT assets.
- Software License Mismanagement: Keeping track of different software licenses was a significant challenge, leading to unnecessary costs and potential legal risks.
