Tracking high-value assets, equipment, fleet maintenance, and consumables is a time-intensive task that can place major demands on personnel and chip away at budgets.
The alternative, though, is certainly worse: lack of awareness about equipment readiness or the location of critical assets, shortages of in-demand consumables like PPE, and losses due to shrinkage.
Many departments lack standardized, comprehensive tools for asset tracking, recordkeeping, and accountability. Disparate systems for various assets can lead to disjointed recordkeeping and no standardization. Hand logs and spreadsheets can cause redundancies and inaccuracies, while a lack of visibility and awareness can create an environment that inadvertently encourages shrinkage.
Maybe worst of all, when critical scheduled maintenance or inspections are missed, out-of-service equipment can interfere with a department’s ability to serve.
But when your entire operation can rely on a single asset management source that’s both exhaustive in reach and item-level granular, you can achieve comprehensive, shared awareness and total control over inventory, maintenance, regulatory compliance, and even order scheduling for consumables.
Automated solutions can streamline and simplify every aspect of inventory and asset management, especially if they include the right tools and structures that make it easy for everyone across the agency to access, use, and update these critical records.
