Asset tracking software can help institutions with a lot of problems such as low productivity, inefficiency, and huge overheads.

Every successful business owner knows that working to prevent a crisis is better than managing it. Businesses take great pains to predict and plan for future goals and challenges. However, most business owners fail to apply the same policy when it comes to managing their equipment. According to CISCO’s former CEO, 40% of businesses will not survive the next 10 years.

If your business is dependent on its equipment for day to day operations then it is important to have that equipment in order. Preventive maintenance can save businesses from unscheduled equipment breakdowns and performance hiccups. This article details the benefits of preventive maintenance and how preventive maintenance management software can help businesses execute an effective maintenance plan. Continue reading

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 use Equipment Tracking Software for your business?
When implementing solutions to manage assets and equipment, businesses are often faced with three choices: traditional spreadsheets, on-premise software, or cloud-based equipment tracking software. Spreadsheets are usually plagued with errors and inefficiencies that can be easily avoided in automated software solutions.

This need for faster and agile software solutions has led to an increase in the demand for cloud-based software. In fact 82% of new commercial applications are now built specifically for cloud-based delivery. Here are 5 reasons why businesses are choosing cloud-based equipment tracking software over on-premise software. Continue reading

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.

This is why fixed asset management software is a safe bet for businesses wanting to improve asset productivity. Let’s look at how this kind of solution helps businesses streamline fixed asset management. Continue reading

Some will argue that tracking the time on jobs and projects is not the road to productivity, that the very act of tracking time uses up precious time, that it’s a form of micromanagement, or that it’s simply not useful information.
