When providing outstanding Event Management IT solutions, you have to be prepared to deal with a monumental amount of hardware and devices.
To manage these, we designed an Asset Management Application capable of dealing with the thousands of stock movements that the logistics team have to manage each year.
At the heart of our administration system is a powerful, centralized database which provides controlled access for all parties that require it, thus preventing discrepancies that may otherwise arise between departments. A single audit has the capacity to cover multiple locations and thousands of assets, or by stock owner.
Our Asset Management Application ensures that both the accounting and tracking modules work in unison to provide an accurate, validated, and consistently current database, enabling users to comply fully and confidently with auditor requirements.
Item details are scanned onto a hand-held data capture device which is used to scan the unit bar codes, or can be manually entered using a easy to use GUI system.
