Asset tracking software and quick adoption
Why should you be concerned about the learning curve of asset tracking software? Last year, companies spent around $333 billion on business software. One only has to think of the number of software products a company uses on average to wonder about the costs associated with this kind of use. A significant cost associated with software use is that of onboarding. A company hiring just a hundred new employees can face up to $40,000 dollars a year for onboarding alone, not including any recruitment or training costs! This can be extremely discouraging for businesses. Not only do they have to make sure new employees have all the tools necessary to get the job done, but they also have the added pressure of ensuring that the employees know exactly how to use those tools!

Why fixed asset management software?
Fixed asset management is a tough nut to crack. The cost of acquiring and maintaining these assets is high, and deciding on a process that best utilizes and optimizes the performance of these items can be difficult to get right. Businesses want to keep storage and maintenance overheads low, while at the same time increasing ROIs and asset longevity.

Why is asset tracking software important?
An organized workplace is definitely more effective and productive than an unorganized one. However, many managers shy away from discussing their asset management strategies. In most cases, organizations have no clue about the number of assets that go missing every day or the financial losses that they incur due to mismanagement of assets. However, keeping track of each asset can be a daunting and time-consuming task. In fact in cases where the asset count is in the hundreds and thousands, it is impossible to manually track them all. Fortunately, asset tracking software is designed to automate asset management providing managers with a bird’s eye view on the status and needs of all their assets.

How does equipment management software make a difference?
The new year is a time for both reflection and new beginnings: what did we do right this past year and what did we miss out on? Most importantly, were we happy and did we accomplish the goals that we set for ourselves? Our personal and professional goals are not always that different, what with the ultimate objectives of success and happiness. Therefore, when businesses set financial and productivity goals for the new year they should also consider planning for a happier work environment. The importance of keeping our employees happy is further illustrated by Dee Hock, the founder and CEO of VISA Inc.:
“An organization, no matter how well designed, is only as good as the people who live and work in it.”

Why use CMMS?
‘Should have checked that before,’ is a phrase that is commonly used in situations where we have to swallow the bitter pill of things not going as planned. Oversights don’t always lead to disasters in the traditional sense, but they can be lethal for SMEs. Construction delays, equipment downtimes, employee overtime, and substandard work are only a few of the dangerous outcomes of equipment oversight. Such outcomes are what escalate costs and damage reputations. Fortunately for construction companies, computerized maintenance management software (CMMS) is there to save the day. The software enables companies to plan equipment maintenance well in advance and avoid unexpected equipment breakdowns and related obstacles. Continue reading
Why use equipment inventory software?
Equipment inventory software can be a great boon for the public safety sector. This industry is fairly expansive, estimated to grow to around $456.56 billion by 2021. A huge chunk of this is distributed across North America, with our public safety institutions being among the most robust in the world. The sector is typified by its need for precision and efficiency; any stumbling blocks along the way can mean the difference between life and death. This is why equipment breakdowns or unavailability can be a significant risk for the authorities, and might even open them up to serious litigation. What’s needed is an intuitive and effective way to manage inventory so that public safety officials can carry out their jobs without having to worry about administrative hassles.
A commonality across these organizations is that they strive to work for the public interest, contain many hundreds if not thousands of employees, and have limited (often government-funded) budgets with little or no wiggle room. With these similarities in mind, here are some ways equipment inventory software can open up bottlenecks faced by public safety institutions. Continue reading

A good asset tracking software should empower you with better organization of assets, streamlined processes and extensive records of crucial asset information. When deciding if it’s the right time to invest in asset tracking software, ask yourself: Continue reading
Asset tracking software, K12s, and the revolution in education
The educational landscape in North America has changed drastically over the last decade. With a multitude of new disciplines being taught in schools and universities, the importance of emerging technologies in framing educational programs, and the increased focus on extra-curriculars, education has turned into a complex network of courses and activities. In 2015, around 50.1 million American students were enrolled in a K12. This is one of the reasons the cost of providing education is on the rise every year. One of the factors inflating these costs is the increasing educational and recreational assets K12s have to account for. Continue reading
