Founded in January 2013, Newport Beach & Company is a non-profit organization established to serve as the official marketing agency for the city of Newport Beach. The agency brings together all of the marketing entities connected to the Newport Beach brand and is designed to oversee separate business units that include Visit Newport Beach, Dine Newport Beach, Celebrate Newport Beach, Enterprise Newport Beach and Newport Beach TV.
Before finding Asset Panda, we were using Excel spreadsheets. That particular format to track our assets was just too cumbersome and did not allow for us to track smaller items. Now that we have been with Asset Panda for over a year and a half and have seen what it has done for us thus far in terms of tracking our depreciable assets, we are going to be expanding its use to track smaller items in our television studio, such as cameras, lights, etc. While we primarily only have been using the desktop version, we are going to be implementing the mobile app soon as well which will give us much more accurate and reliable data and knowledge about our assets, where they are and the condition they are in.
Asset Panda is a relatively easy to implement software that has a lot of capabilities, many of which we are still discovering. It’s been especially useful to us for both non-depreciating items as well as smaller items used in our day-to-day operations. The software has allowed for better tracking of our assets overall and the scannable barcode labels will help our team ensure that we are tracking our transported items in a better way.
On top of the ease of use with Asset Panda, the customer service we have received has been very good and we are even saving time out of each and every day that would usually be spent looking for assets or troubleshooting needed equipment. I most definitely would recommend Asset Panda to entities looking to get a better handle on how they track their everyday assets.
