Barcode ITAM Solution
As a data center manager, IT director, or professional in charge of managing company assets, you have a great responsibility of identifying and inventorying physical assets. Unfortunately, this task can be challenging when laptops, tablets, monitors, printers, hard drives, and other ITAM equipment are constantly coming and going. A manual inventory count is time-consuming and can result in errors.
Instead of spending your valuable time performing manual inventories, utilize our barcode ITAM solutions to keep up with assets — whether they’re in use or decommissioned. Don’t waste time tracking down an asset’s status, location, or owner details any longer. With our barcode IT asset management services, you will have up-to-date information on all of your organization’s assets.
The Problem With Spreadsheets
Today, many companies are still managing and tracking their IT assets through spreadsheets even when the number of assets has increased, and the need to track more asset details has grown. When the demands increase, many companies find that tracking in spreadsheets becomes unwieldy. Manual entry is prone to error, and when multiple individuals contribute to a spreadsheet, different version histories can pose challenges in maintaining updated information.
For the companies that want to take the first step past spreadsheets, we provide turnkey barcode ITAM solutions. Over the years, we have helped many companies graduate beyond spreadsheets by implementing customized barcode solutions for IT equipment that matched their exact needs. These systems not only saved them time but also protected them from costly mistakes in inventory management.
The Solution to Inventory Management: Barcode Physical Asset Tracking
Barcoding your IT assets is a popular solution as a low-cost improvement beyond spreadsheets. It’s also an easy solution — just print barcodes and apply them to your assets.
Where will this data be stored? Our core software, Asset Vue Inventory (AVI), is a cloud-based web application that becomes your central database to track and manage your assets. We built this RFID and barcode physical asset tracking solution to be easy to use and unobtrusive to your current operations.
Whether you already have barcodes, need to get new ones, or need us to suggest barcodes, AVI can handle it. The same thing is true for barcode scanners — whether you have existing scanners, need new ones, or prefer us to advise, AVI is built to easily handle either option for you. Plus, if you use our mobile app, Asset Vue Mobile, as your physical assets barcode system, the camera on your mobile device can be your barcode scanner, eliminating the need to buy new scanners.
Lastly, while we have been focusing on IT assets, our barcode ITAM solutions can also manage non-IT assets. If an asset is tagged with a barcode, we can track it.
Key Features of Our Barcode ITAM Solutions
Our physical assets barcode system has the features you’d expect, such as Check-In/Out, Add, and Move. However, it has so much more as well.
- Role-Based Security: This feature allows administrators to assign access levels to specific users.
- Attachment Capabilities: If you have P/Os or warranty information you need to include with the asset details, our barcoding system for enterprise clients allows attachments at the asset level.
- Simple Integrations: You can expect our barcode IT asset management services to seamlessly coordinate with your other operations management solutions. Integrations with other software like helpdesk and finance make the entire enterprise more efficient through sharing consistent data.
A Barcoding System That Grows With Your Business
While you might be considering barcode ITAM solutions now, you may want to implement RFID ITAM solutions and perhaps a fully automated solution at some point in the future. Asset Vue Inventory is also flexible in this regard and scales as you grow. AVI handles both RFID and barcode solutions for IT equipment and non-IT assets. In fact, when we provide RFID tags, we provide RFID tags that have an accompanying barcode. Asset Vue is perfect for your current needs and will support you as these asset management needs grow.
