Common Equipment Management Challenges And How To Overcome Them

Every business owner is likely to have issues with equipment management. This is because every business is likely to have a multitude of equipment in a variety of locations. As a result, challenges may present themselves in all areas of the business. However, with the right equipment tracking software, it is possible for you to overcome such issues. 

Here is where we can come in and help you. We’re a team of experts who can help you to overcome a wide range of equipment challenges. Our software is used by businesses everywhere and your business could do the same. 

Below, you will find details of some of the most common equipment management challenges and how you too can overcome them.

Tracking Equipment

Tracking equipment can prove to be almost impossible. If you have multiple locations, a lot of employees and/or a lot of equipment, tracking it can be difficult. As a result, equipment may be misplaced or even stolen. This results in daily operations failing to run as smoothly as they should. Productivity could decrease and profit margins could be affected. 

With the right equipment tracking software, however, it is possible to remove all of these issues. Using a QR code or RFID tag and our software, you could track your equipment all day, every day. This ensures you may no longer need to replace equipment that has been lost or stolen. It also ensures that your team has access to the equipment it needs at all times. Therefore, productivity can be optimised and your business could benefit.

Regularly Maintaining Equipment

Maintaining equipment can be a potential issue for businesses everywhere. This is simply because scheduling regular maintenance can be a headache. When equipment is not regularly maintained it can begin to fail. This is where itemit’s equipment tracking software can make a real difference. 

Thanks to the way that our software works, maintaining your equipment can be easier than you think. As soon as you have created a digital profile for one piece of equipment you can create a maintenance schedule. Our software will send an alert to your chosen team members to tell them when maintenance is due on some of your equipment.

When the maintenance team is aware of what needs to be maintained and when, they’re more likely to repair equipment. Therefore, your valuable and essential equipment is more likely to stay in good condition. However, this is not the only useful feature that can help with maintenance. Should a machine, for example, develop issues, a member of your team can alert the maintenance team. It’s possible to do this by simply leaving a message and tagging the maintenance team in the message. This feature ensures that all of your equipment is much more likely to be in good working order at all times.

Human Errors

Should you and your team rely on spreadsheets rather than equipment tracking software, you could find that human errors take place. From time to time, members of your team may make mistakes when entering information into the spreadsheets. Unfortunately, this can result in the data being incomplete and/or incorrect. 

While using spreadsheets can be cheap to use, there is a real risk that mistakes will be made. Additionally, if many people have access to the same spreadsheet they can take too long to load. Spreadsheets can also fail to let you see who has made changes and where. All of this can be resolved by using itemit’s equipment tracking software. 

Our easy-to-use software works to ensure that all of the inputted data is accurate. The process of manually entering information can be virtually eliminated, allowing us to do the hard work for you. Creating useful data and allowing you to export reports when you wish to means you’re more likely to have accurate data to hand at all times.
