Your portal will work on any browser, e.g. Chrome, Safari, Firefox, Edge.
I already have asset data, can I import it into Assettrac?
Yes. If the assets are uniquely identifiable they can be imported to be available in your portal to use from the start. If not, then your inventory will need to be uniquely identified using a tag so that specific information can be collected about it. We can help you do this or show you how to do it easily yourself. We can also import your list data so information like your locations can also be available when you launch (or just add the data as you go).

How do you help with implementation?
Getting your asset tracking portal implemented smoothly is important. That’s why our team of consultants provide as much support in implementation as required. Typically, we will customise your system to your specific business needs but some clients prefer a blank canvas to customise themselves. Various face-to-face and online training options are available plus training tools and documentation. Whatever the circumstances or stage of the process, we will be on hand to get you up and running fast.
How long will it take for my asset tracking system to be up and running?
It depends on the complexity and size of your business and also any additional services you might need. Simple systems could take as little as 10 days and a more complex solution an average of 90 days. Please note, the implementation time-frame will often include asset tags and user training. For more details, check out our case studies to see examples of businesses of all sizes.
What if our business changes, can we update our system to our changed needs?
Absolutely. Our technical team is there to support you and help make sure your system continues to meet your business needs as it evolves. It’s so easy to customise that Assettrac clients will adapt and build their systems themselves, enabling them to track new workflows or parts of the business. Other clients ask Assettrac to do the adaptations for them which we will happily do!

What is an asset audit?
An asset audit is a systematic and comprehensive identification and verification of a company’s physical assets. Physical assets encompass a huge range of items from inventory to facilities, machinery and equipment to tools, technology and even fire and safety equipment assets. The type, data and value of assets that can be recorded is almost limitless..
During the asset audit, you will be verifying the existence, condition, and value of your assets, ensuring that they are accurately represented in the company’s financial records, asset register or critical management systems. Read more here.
How often should I track my business' physical assets?
Historically, most businesses have tracked their physical assets on an annual cycle to feed into their financial reporting, however changing business demands can drive a need for a organisation to conduct audits more frequently, e.g. trigger events, industry-specific or compliance requirements or a need for continuous monitoring for operational efficiency. Read more here.
Do I need to buy asset labels?
Yes. To track specific assets digitally you will need labels and hardware. Assettrac can advise on and supply the right technologies and labels and support you through implementation and on-going care. We supply tags for barcode asset tracking, QR codes, RFID asset tags and IoT. We also supply handheld devices and to help you get up and running quickly, we can deliver an on-site tagging and data logging service, either as an initial phase or re-verification of existing assets or as part of a regular service.
Do I need to buy hardware or can I use the app on our smartphones/tablets?
Our apps work on all devices. Depending on your circumstances, you can either use your own mobile devices or we can source ones with an inbuilt scanner.
What types of asset tags do we need?
We will advise on and source the best tools and tags for your business needs. Asset tags and labels include RFID, QR code and barcode labels that can be customised with your branding. It’s also important to consider the environment. If your assets are regularly outside or in extreme environments, we will supply tags that are durable and waterproof.
Can I buy Assettrac on subscription?
Assettrac is not sold on tiered subscriptions like you see with many other SaaS providers. Our belief is that one-size does not fit all. Each system is customised and pricing is dependent on size, scale and the complexity required for your business. A typical system starts at an average £2,500 per year.
Are asset tags included in the cost of my system?
Asset tags are ordered and charged separately to your asset tracking portal as your needs will change from year to year, this means that you are not charged for asset tags that you don’t use.
Can I have a free trial of Assettrac?
Assettrac does not generally offer free trials as each system is customised for each client.
Typically we find that most businesses don’t have the time to upload data and trial multiple systems and simply want to know whether a software will work for them. To answer this, we provide a tailored demonstration to show how the software and its customisation can help a business of your type with your unique business needs.
