What is an Asset Management System? In short, it's any process used by a company or organization to track their important equipment - but also their licenses, accessories, inventory and components. A lot of companies underestimate the importance of having their assets organized and counted for, and thus lose both money and time.
The importance of using an Asset Management System
Many companies and organizations are currently managing their equipment through manual processes (such as spreadsheets, physical notebooks) - most of which are mainly managed by a single employee. Keeping these records up-to-date by yourself is very challenging with all the other things happening during a normal workday, which means it often becomes the employees last priority. Here are some of the usual consequences of not using an asset management system:
- Lost assets such as projectors or monitors that mysteriously went missing during an office move.
- Forgotten assets such as phones or laptops given out to employees but are never returned as planned.
- Damaged assets that are never sent off for maintenance or just get thrown out instead of being fixed and re-used.
- Human errors
- Time wasted looking for assets
- Inaccurate information for accounting and compliance
Due to the reasons above, companies and organisations needs an effective way to keep track of their most important equipment - and that's where we come in.
