From manufacturing plants to retail industries, from automobile industries to the healthcare industry, they all are dependent on different types of assets. Without these assets, it would not be possible for them to complete their day to day operations and tasks. Therefore, having a robust asset management software is a necessity for any organization.
But before you purchase asset management software, you should know that not all the features of asset management software are meant for every industry. Here are the user-friendly features to look for:
Customization Is Critical
Every business is unique and so are their requirements. That’s why it’s a must to have customization features in the software. Look for software that lets you easily customize data fields and create your own reports so you can collect, use and share the information you need.

Audit on Your Terms
By customizing your asset management software to meet the asset management terms and practices, a positive contribution can be made to the productivity of any business enterprise. Look for features that let you set your own timeframes. Make changes for missing and unrecorded assets, and limit information users can see when performing an audit.
Keep It in the Cloud
Cloud based asset management centralizes your data in one location and makes it accessible from multiple devices at a time. It also saves you from IT headaches because everything is stored and serviced by the software provider.
Import Spreadsheet Data
Switching from Excel? Check if the software you are looking at has an import menu that allows you to import the assets, personnel, and vendor data from a .csv file. An import menu with step-by-step instructions and support makes it easy to import your old asset data.
