COVID changed our lives and turned them upside down, approximately one year ago. Businesses up and down the UK found their entire workforce, or at the very least a large chunk of them, being made to work from home and quite rightly so. In doing this however, the vast majority of multiple business’s IT assets went with those workers in order to allow them to carry out their jobs from home. For some, this happened within hours.
Fast forward 12 months and now a great deal of company’s have found themselves with huge discrepancies in their IT asset register, asking themselves, “do we really know what IT equipment is really at people’s homes?”
Without an adequate asset management system in place, keeping track of your IT equipment is virtually impossible. From moving equipment to software licences, the only thing that’s guaranteed is change and without an adequate and regular log of what’s going on, where and with whom, you’ll never be able to keep on top of it.
There are companies that dedicate staff to do this job however, it can often become too much for one member of your team to handle, especially if you boast a larger, or even multi-site company.
Thankfully, asset management doesn’t have to be an arduous task that costs you as much time and money as you think. By utilising the services of a specific hardware asset management team, you’ll receive a full asset management inventory, helping you locate every piece of IT equipment within your estate, so you never need to question where it is again.
Not only can will it locate IT equipment that’s still within the four walls of your office building, but also help locate equipment that’s outside of your network. After each full inventory, you’ll get a detailed report giving you all the information you need, from a list of all equipment within your estate to its location, as well as the user it’s assigned to and the user it’s actually with.
