Create Your Own Asset Tracking Software Specification
The implementation of any new business system or process is important to get right and asset tracking software is just the same. Every business, and the workflows it uses to successfully deliver its products and services, is different and therefore every system specification will vary too. Getting your specification right will save you money, time and stress and even more importantly, ensure you implement software that will serve your business for the long-term.
For over 20 years, Assettrac has been advising businesses on how to best achieve their goals for effective asset tracking. As a result, they have come across many common questions and misconceptions about what can be achieved as well as the opportunities that can be capitalised with a custom asset tracking solution. Assettrac’s Commercial Director, James Laing, comments;
“In a SaaS-world, it’s easy for any business to quickly subscribe to a generic cloud software, this is handy but it can also lead to pitfalls that ultimately undermine the solution’s effectiveness, implementation and for the evolving goals of the business.”
“We meet a lot of businesses that are frustrated. Often using old and clunky technology (like spreadsheets), have tried to adapt their own systems and it hasn’t been well adopted or it simply doesn’t give them the reporting or data they need. Physical assets are an intrinsic part of any operation, touching every department and multiple business processes. Asset tracking solutions are core to driving workflow efficiencies across an organisation. For this reason, we wanted to help businesses understand their position and then accurately assess their requirements more effectively. Helping them save time researching and ultimately implementing the right solution for them.”
To do this, Assettrac has created an asset tracking specification quiz to help any organisation define exactly what they need from an asset management solution.
The 6 key areas that help define the right asset tracking software for your organisation
Taking just a few minutes to complete, this free specification tool takes the user through a series of questions relating to the requirements and set-up based on our experience of implementing systems for businesses of all sizes and sectors around the world.
On completion of the quiz, the user will receive a full report with observations, suggestions and opportunities that they can use to help them research and specify the right software tool for their business.
The software specification focuses on 6 key areas:
- Volume & type of assets to be tracked
- Asset Environment – e.g. inside, outside, static or on the move
- Processes – the processes in your business that link to your assets and how they are managed
- Types of asset tags – the environment, data requirements and technologies available.
- Your reporting requirements – in-house, customer, operational or other
- Integrations – other internal departments, outside business systems and software
