By effectively managing your company’s IT assets, you can help not only improve visibility and control of said assets but you can also identify stolen assets, unhealthy assets and even become alerted to things such as warranty end dates emerging.
IT asset management is so much more than merely locating your items. Having a structure and process in place to ensure your asset management is taken care of regularly will provide you with far more accurate information, allowing companies like yourself, to become more agile by giving you the ability to change or redistribute assets at any given moment.
Having up to date data like this to hand, can also be critical during times of natural disaster or as we’re seeing now, sudden pandemics sweeping the nation.
Why Is Asset Management Needed?
The question is however, just what is IT support and asset management exactly? A simple spreadsheet? Or is it so much more?
IT assets are costly to acquire and maintain. If they aren’t taken care of properly, many companies can find themselves losing money in a multitude of ways. Asset management plays a very key role in ensuring IT teams and even staff members outside of the ‘IT department’ are making efficient use of their equipment and resources.
During asset management audits, we can provide companies with not only a log of each asset within their ownership, but also whether each item is being used efficiently, whether it would be better redistributed to another department as well as vital information such as warranty end dates and even the health of the asset itself.
There are several benefits of regular, thorough IT asset management. These include but aren’t limited to:
- Ensuring compliance with corporate policies and regulatory requirements.
- Improving productivity within said company by deploying technology and assets to departments and users where they’ll be better utilised.
- Reducing support or licensing costs by eliminating profiles or ‘users’ on software when no longer needed.
