Why Managing Assets Is A Breeze When You Use Tracking Software

Managing your assets can be so much easier when you use technology that’s been specifically created to help. Using a fixed asset register can help you to make the most of your assets while also being in complete control of them. Let’s now take a look at why using this software is a breeze and why you should consider using it every day.

Asset Registers Are Easy To Use

One of the best things about asset registers (aside from their tracking abilities) is that they’re very easy to use. These days, the right software will come with a clean user interface and not too many menus to click on. 

There’s no point in creating a fixed asset register that’s so complicated no one knows how to use it. In fact, the easier it is to use the better. With the ability to locate assets in moments or check them in and out, users can get a lot done in seconds. You don’t need a degree in computer sciences to understand how to use an asset register. This means your business could begin to benefit from using one.

Tracking Your Assets Is Very Easy

One of the main features of any reliable and modern fixed asset register is that it allows you to track your assets. What’s more, is that you can track them very easily. 

The ability to track your assets is one of the main reasons why people and businesses use an asset register. So, how do you track assets? Simply attach a QR code or RFID tag to any asset you want to track. Then, scan the code or tag so a digital profile is displayed. Now enter relevant information about the asset into the profile and you’re done.

Reporting Issues Has Never Been Simpler

When you use a fixed asset register to its full advantage you’ll find it simple to report issues with any of your assets. 

Leave a message with the maintenance team so they know which asset needs to be repaired. Take a photo of the asset for easy identification if you have many similar assets. 

You could consider using pre-emptive maintenance by setting up a maintenance schedule for your assets. When you do, your assets can be in a better condition and, therefore, last longer.

You Can Access The Software On Multiple Devices

Did you know that it’s possible for you to access your new asset register on multiple devices? As long as you use tracking software that’s flexible enough, you can potentially access your asset register on a laptop, tablet, desktop computer, and a smartphone. Imagine being able to gain access as and when you need it. You don’t have to wait until you’re at the office. You can simply log in via your chosen device and get to work. Your colleagues can also do the same which means that productivity could potentially increase.

You Can Check Assets In And Out For Additional Control

Want to make sure the right people only ever use specific assets? Some registers come with a check in and check out feature. If your chosen fixed asset register has this, it’s worth using it. 

This feature could help to keep your assets safer. You can see who is using each asset within moments. You could also see whether those expensive assets have been returned on time.

Working On-The-Go Is Easy

We have already seen that you can access your register via different devices. But did you know that this feature allows you to work on-the-go?

You could access the register when you’re travelling on the train. Perhaps you could log into the software via your laptop when working from home or in another business’s office. Using your desktop computer when you’re in your own office could be ideal. Don’t forget, you can access the software via your smartphone at any time, regardless of where you are. 

Whether you’re travelling to another work site or office or you’re travelling to or from work, with easy access you can get more tasks completed.

Asset Profiles Can Be Populated With Useful Information

When you create a digital profile you can populate it with some very useful information. Ideally, each profile in your fixed asset register will contain details such as the asset’s

  • Brand and model
  • Serial number
  • Warranty details
  • Insurance information
  • Value of the asset
  • Photograph to make identification easy
  • Maintenance schedule 
  • Instruction manual or a link to it
  • And any other relevant information

When you populate a profile with all of the above, you can access it at the touch of a button whenever it’s needed.
