Forget Spreadsheets, Asset Tracking Software is All You Need

Forget Spreadsheets, Asset Tracking Software is All You Need

Spreadsheets can be good to use for a variety of reasons. However, they may not be offering you all that you need. Here at itemit, we understand that many businesses have become used to using spreadsheets. The trouble is that a spreadsheet can only do so much. You can add as many formulas as you wish, but every spreadsheet has its limitations. 

This is why more and more businesses are now using our asset tracking software. Our software is here to make your life easier so you no longer need to rely on old fashioned spreadsheets.

Use Asset Tracking Software

Our asset tracking software offers you far more than a spreadsheet can. There are many benefits that come with using our tracking software. Some of these benefits can be found below:

Asset Tracking Software - Spreadsheets

Assign Assets To Individuals

Assets can be signed to individuals as and when they are required. The benefit of this is that it’s possible to see who has which assets. A history of use can also be added, allowing management to see who had which assets and when. 

Whenever assets are assigned to individuals it’s likely that they will be looked after. This is a result of the individuals knowing they have a responsibility for the asset. They’re also aware that their name has been marked against the asset. As a result, they are likely to take more care of the assets. This, in turn, can result in fewer assets sustaining damage or being lost. The money that would have been spent replacing or repairing the assets can then be used elsewhere.

Track The Location Of Each Asset

One of the major benefits of itemit’s asset tracking software is the location tracking feature. While spreadsheets can tell you who has the asset, they cannot tell you exactly where it is. There may be an idea as to where the asset is, but the knowledge is limited. Thanks to the way that itemit’s tracking software works, it’s possible to see exactly where the assets are. 

When users log into itemit’s menu they can select the asset in question and see where it was last seen or currently is, depending on the method of tracking. It’s this that can help them to locate lost or stolen assets. In addition to this, users can also see whether the asset has arrived at its destination. This is not something that a spreadsheet can do. 

It can be so helpful to know where your assets are at all times. You can track non-fixed and fixed assets, should you wish to. You can print off reports, see who last used the asset, or if there are any issues with it. This is not something that a spreadsheet can offer you.

Schedule Dates With Reminders

Our software can help you to remember important dates. It is possible to set reminders and receive a notification. The notification can be set to alert on the important day in question or a few days or weeks beforehand. 

The ability to schedule dates with reminders allows users to understand:

  • When assets need to undergo maintenance
  • When assets may need to be replaced
  • When reports need to be collected
  • When senior management is visiting
  • When health and safety training needs to be undertaken
  • And so much more. 

While it’s possible to add important dates to spreadsheets, the use is limited. No reminder will be given the next time someone logs into the spreadsheet. Rather, they will have to scour the spreadsheet to make sure they have not missed the important dates. 

Here is where using itemit’s software can help. Users will receive a notification of an event at the time requested. As a result, they are unlikely to miss the date and ensure tasks are completed on time.
