Let Maintenance Management Do Your Work for You
In past times, it has been very difficult and time consuming to monitor physical assets. Also it was hard to determine when some assets needed some type of periodic maintenance. For example, a lot of machines have maintenance requirements that need to be taken every month, every year, or every few years. If it's a while between maintenance, it's easy to forget. That may eventually result in the premature failure of the machine.
That's the reason eam software was created. EAM stands for enterprise asset management. This software is used to track assets and to maintain the maintenance schedule of assets if it is required to be performed. Alerts can be setup to be delivered to the appropriate people when it is time for you to perform maintenance. And also the data in this software makes it very easy to do the annual inventory.
Tracking IT assets can be quite difficult and complicated. There are lots of configurations on desktop computers and computer servers. The amount of CPUs inside a server may determine whether or not the business is compliant with software licensing requirements. All this can be traced much easier with eam software that is specifically designed for IT assets.
Oftentimes, the software can check all of the systems attached to the network to get updates on the assets including software installed as well as the current hardware configuration. This is an excellent method to ensure that the company has a good handle of where things are and whether the company is compliant with the various software agreements that it has signed with software vendors.
Related to IT asset management is digital asset management like fleet management software. At most companies, this usually means software. The program will go out to the various systems on the network and check to find out if the number of users exceeds the maximum limit for software licensing. It will also search for other software that may not be on the existing list. It is important for companies to remove software that has not been purchased, as it may lead to accusations of piracy.
The eam software also looks at other digital assets including books, articles, recordings, along with other similar assets. This can be helpful when calculating things such as royalty payments and the use of digital assets. Overall, using this type of software to monitor digital software makes the job a lot easier.
The main element to having an effective eam software deployment is the setup of reports. Ideally, it should be automatically sent to the right users at the correct time. For instance, repair orders may be opened up at the maintenance yards as vehicles reach the mileage threshold for a specific kind of maintenance via Work Order Tracking Software. This makes sure that the right people are assigned tasks at the correct time.
Automation is key to success. The less human intervention is needed when tracking assets, the better. This makes a business much more efficient when handling its various assets. In the long run, it will help the company save a lot of time and money.
