Founded in 1924, Univar is a leading global chemical distributor of industrial and specialty chemicals and related chemistry services. Univar operates a network of over 600 distribution facilities throughout North America, Europe, the Asia-Pacific region, and Latin America, with additional sales offices located in Eastern Europe, the Middle East, and Africa. Our nearly 9,000 employees serve over 100,000 customers, representing nearly every major industry and a highly diverse set of end markets.
We had gotten into a real mess with our IT equipment and our attempts at tracking all of it across multiple locations – some 54 sites across EMEA. We were using Excel spreadsheets to track all of our assets. It simply was not working. At all.
In just the 6 months since we started using Asset Panda, we are finally getting out from underneath that Excel mess and we have an easy-to-use and reliable system in place. The ability to scan assets no matter where they are using the built-in scanner and affiliated mobile app has really impacted our daily operations – in a good way. The overall process of tracking assets is much quicker. We have seen immediate results of time saved daily searching for assets and entering data. Additionally, we are realizing that since we integrated Asset Panda, we have less missing and unreturned assets. Employees are more accountable and responsible for the assets they are using no matter where they are in the world. The option to have all of our data in one centralized location viewable in real time allows us to have a much more accurate knowledge of what we have and where it is.
I highly recommend Asset Panda as a solid solution to anyone with asset tracking and management needs. Asset Panda is a fantastic product with great customization and very helpful support from the customer service team.
