Asset Scanning Apps vs. Mobile Asset Solutions

Asset Scanning Apps and Mobile Asset Solutions sound like they could be the same thing, right?

In our world, they are pretty different.

We look at asset solutions from a more holistic perspective.  Meaning we start with whatever data you have, help you organize it into logical inventory jobs for your team to complete, help your team along the way as they conduct their inventory audit, deliver the data that they collect into an area where you can review, and finally reconcile it before updating your systems of record.

And that’s just looking at the inventory side of our solution functions.

From what I’ve seen, asset scanning apps mainly scan barcodes, translate what is captured into text printed to documents or spreadsheets, and leave you to sort out the data in spreadsheets later.

Apps and Solutions have different levels of functionality, pricing, and effort.  So if you are just starting to look for a solution for your organization, know that there is a wide range of offerings, from basic asset scanning apps to complete enterprise mobile asset solutions available on the market.

If you’re not sure where to start, contact us.  We’d be happy to talk to you about what you’re trying to accomplish with your asset tracking and help you get started navigating the options that might work best for you and your team.
