Property Asset Tracking

Jeff Garver - Thursday, February 01, 2018

Maintaining accurate records of fixed assets can be a time consuming and expensive task for any company. Items like IT equipment, office equipment, and tools all have value. Tracking these items can increase bottom line profits. Rather than wasting time searching for and replacing lost assets, you can keep track of all your valuable assets with a convenient, easy to use complete asset tracking system that is regularly managed. Often, solutions in this field are integrated into larger ERP systems, but they can be stand-alone solutions too. 

The bulk of assets that are tracked can generally be tagged with a barcode or RFID label. In some cases, pictures can be used to track assets that cannot be tagged with other methods. This is viable if your software choice supports that option. 

The software that you choose to drive property asset tracking will require you to consider how the application will be used. Do you have a need to not only track the asset but its last known location?  Was it a piece of property assigned to a person and how is that transaction recorded? 

Spending time at the beginning of the process to answer questions will allow you to make the best decision on what your solution needs to provide.
