Why Focus on Inventories?

Inventories are rarely a task that anyone gets excited about.  They take time.  They can be frustrating when assets aren’t where they are supposed to be.  They often take people out of their primary tasks to complete.  In short, they may be put off, glossed over, rushed, or in some cases – or not done at all because there are so many other things to get done.

But the fact remains that asset reporting is an essential part of understanding the status of the State’s assets.  So no matter how we feel about conducting inventories – we have to do it to ensure we know what we own.

mobilePLUS makes FI$Cal inventories Easy
