What is Asset Management Software

Fixed asset management software is important for any business, but why, and what does it do? It records the value of an item a business uses to generate income for the business.

Asset management, sometimes referred to as EAM or PP&E is a valuable business construct. EAM (Enterprise Asset Management) and PP&E (Plant, Property & Equipment) are other ways to explain asset management.

It will keep track of the item’s value through many different variables. These include age dependency, depreciation in value, maintenance scheduling and theft.

Fixed asset tracking helps a business to increase profitability through reducing operating costs. While they rarely sell their assets, they’re used to create the products the business will sell.

By maintaining the condition of the assets, it costs less to make each product for the business. New assets do not need purchasing, and those profits directed elsewhere. Maintenance helps to maintain the assets for as long as possible.

Fixed assets can include a wide range of business tools and equipment. These are buildings, machinery, tools, vehicles, equipment and more. Whatever is useful for a business to manufacture their goods will need tracking.

Accentis Enterprise Asset Management is powerful in this regard. It will also track location, condition, warranty and image information on all items. Bulk depreciation and auto-valuation features also provide an essential element.

Enterprise Asset Management (EAM)

As a business grows, the assets that it purchases will also grow. This is where an EAM solution becomes a paramount need. Businesses also suffer from the same growing issue with business software.

Businesses grow and will add many different software products to satisfy the demand. Using an ERP solution such as Accentis Enterprise is a better idea. Asset management is just one integrated module of the complete business management program. Off the shelf software products cannot compete and will make it harder to manage.

As business complexity increases, it will become harder and harder to support. Mundane and repetitive tasks will take up too many resources for the business to support. This will mean extra manpower will cost the business for no benefit.

More equipment and staff will compound the issue, and soon the business will break. By utilising an integrated approach, you can streamline your entire business. Small business management software will give your business better efficiency long term.

EAM is often an important module within any ERP system and comes as an optional module in Accentis. Tracking and support for an unlimited number of items, forever, will replace a lot of the burden you can face.

Recording Assets

Every asset the business owns needs recording in a ledger. This is asset tracking at its most simple. Different assets will be different in how they depreciate depending on what it is.

Accentis Enterprise has a large number of fields for asset organisation. Include details such as a bar code, warranties and expiry dates. Take photos of each asset to record its condition and state valuation concerns.

Being a fully-integrated solution, separate GL account support for each asset is available.

Do you own all your own hardware or machinery, or is it only leased? Accentis Enterprise is also capable of handling the depreciation of leased assets too!
