Let’s Embrace Good Asset Management Technologies

In the past few years, we have seen the available solutions for Enterprise Asset Management evolve quite significantly.  Six or seven years ago, Cloud Hosting, Standardized Web APIs, Mobile Asset Tracking and Inventory Audit were relatively new.  However, in 2018, they are all common features of asset management solutions. In fact, buyers expect these to be integrated as part of the standard solution they choose.

In doing this research, we have analyzed many enterprise asset management solutions and talked to many existing and prospective customers to look for common themes and expectations.

  2. Using Mobile Phones to Make Auditing Inventory Easier and More Convenient
  3. Facilitate Easy “Checkout and Check In” of Assets, with Signature Capture and Email Approvals Outside of the Application
