6 Common Asset tracking problems and how to solve them?

As hybrid working becomes a norm rather than exception, organizations are struggling to manage their  IT assets like mobiles, laptops & desktops etc. Right from procurement, assignment, problem resolution, change and disposal there are many challenges that are faced in implementing a smooth and seamless asset management process.  Since the assets are physically used at different locations, coordinating for maintenance and repairs  is like managing assets at 10 locations. Some of the issues faced are: 

  1. Inventory & Asset Management – How many equipment were  purchased in a given period and to whom they were assigned for usage ?
  2. Condition Management – Of all the assets in an outlet how many are working?  
  3. Incident Management – In case of a breakdown, when was it  reported and who is coordinating for repair (on-site or service centre) ? 
  4. Missing contact information for Repairs –  Information related to  AMC or Warranty contract information, call centre details  are generally not  available for coordination of repairs. 
  5. Asset Return – In case an employee leaves the organization, how to make sure that all assets assigned to him have been returned to the designated authority ? 
  6. Expense Visibility – Since expenses made in repair are staggered and spread over a long time,  it is difficult to compile complete amount of expenses incurred for repairs  to decide on repair/ disposal.
