Asset Tracking UK How to Choose the Best System

When you’re looking for UK asset tracking, you’ll need some tools to find the best software for your business.

There are many reasons you may be conducting a search to find an asset tracking system. Perhaps you have an existing tool that you’re no longer happy with, or maybe you need to minimise the number of lost and stolen assets you’re company is experiencing. It could even be that you’re growing at such a rapid pace that you need a better process for onboarding new staff.

No matter what your reasons a UK-based asset tracking system will change the way you manage tools, equipment and IT hardware, forever. Let’s take a look at a few ways you can optimise your search for asset tracking software in order to begin saving time and money and to make better business-centric decisions.


Know What Your UK Asset Tracking System Needs to Give You

The first thing to establish is what you’re looking for. This may sound easy, but sometimes the wider business has additional requirements that you may be able to incorporate into your search to find the best solution for you and your colleagues in the long-term. The best way to do this is to:

– Discuss internally and establish a list of core requirements

– Create a list of nice-to-have features and functionality that would be a huge bonus

– Establish your budget and timeframe

Your requirements may include things such as a way to track asset whereabouts to minimise asset losses and thefts. Or perhaps you want teams to have access to asset data on-the-go and simultaneously.

Whichever tracking solution you choose, it must have effective features that’ll assist your day to day operations. For example, if you can use GPS tagging with your system, off-the-shelf, not only will it work out cheaper from fewer lost assets, it’ll also shield you from theft in the first place as GPS tracking is a major theft deterrent.

The use of QR code asset tags will also help speed up your processes, as the retrieval of asset profiles is instant. What this means is you’ll be able to check out or book an asset on your phone almost instantly after scanning it. Thereafter, your colleagues will all see that it’s not available for use in that period.

These are just a few examples of how a UK asset tracking system can help you and your workflow. You’ll also be able to track maintenance, reminders, warranties, and more, but knowing where to look will help inform your search.


Make the Most Out of an Asset Management Free Trial

A free trial can help you test that the asset tracking software really does fit in well with your needs. It’s a great way to test the whole range of functionality on offer and see if the software is usable and manageable with zero risk.

You may not need a free trial if you’ve seen everything you need already, or if you’re tracking fewer assets, but a free trial can help as a proof of concept. With a proof of concept, you’ll be able to collect information about who needs what from your asset management system and see if it can do what they’re asking. 


Utilise Comparison Sites

Comparison sites can help you in your search at any point in an investigative funnel. 

So, if you’re at the beginning of your search, the ability to see information about an asset tracking system and compare that to other systems can inform which systems you test.

If you’re at the end of your search and ready to purchase, comparison sites can help you verify your decision, showing you that you are investing in the correct UK asset tracking system.

The benefit, too, if you’re based in the UK, is that when you find software, you’ll be in the same time-zone as your UK asset tracking system, and can make an immediate enquiry.
