Customer since: November 2017
Univar is a leading global chemical distributor of industrial and specialty chemicals and related chemistry services. We have assets located all across Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA).
My need for Asset Panda is specifically with hardware asset management tracking. With our assets being moved across a large geographical area, it’s critical that we have a reliable way to track where they are at any given time. Before Asset Panda, we were using a standard Excel spreadsheet. There was no easy way of managing it amongst all of our users and it provided too many opportunities for mistakes.
In our industry, there is no room for mistakes or guesswork. Our scale, geographic reach, diversified distribution channels, industry expertise and comprehensive product portfolio enable us to develop strong, long-term relationships with our suppliers and that means we need to have a firm knowledge of what we have and where it is at any and all times.
I’ve found that virtually all of the features of Asset Panda are useful for our asset tracking and management needs. Having access to the visibility of assets assigned and what we have in stock 24/7 through Asset Panda’s customized reporting is a positive contributor to the bottom line in both time and financial savings.
We no longer have to guess where our assets are and rely on an error-filled spreadsheet to provide that information. We have instant and up-to-date access any time of day no matter where we are. The mobile capabilities are also especially useful with so much of our team on the go. No matter where they are, they can record data about any of our assets in the field and that data is accessible to allocated members of the team. This knowledge enables us to make more strategic decisions when it comes to asset purchases and to view how certain assets are used in the field and the frequency.
Asset Panda is saving us valuable time in our day that can be better spent on the tasks at hand instead of trying to track down our hardware assets or troubleshoot unnecessary repairs that can be avoided with proper asset management.
