Managing company assets across locations can be complicated. Add in office relocating, facilities restructuring, and expanding teams, and suddenly tracking down and organizing even the largest assets becomes a daunting task. Our clients needed a fast and simple process to scan and track a large number of assets and determine whether those assets are currently in the correct locations. We wanted to help them more efficiently manage their assets with a simple enhancement that could seamlessly integrate with the IBM TRIRIGA platform.
We began by implementing the IBM TRIRIGA Work Task app, which allows users to create, perform, and complete work tasks by using their mobile devices to scan a barcode or QR code. From there, the Work Task app was enhanced to allow for rapid and continuous scanning of barcode-labelled assets. This Asset Scanner allowed for the creation of individual scans, including name, type, location and notes on each asset scanned. This data was then uploaded into the Work Task app in IBM TRIRIGA.
Once assets were added to the app, a "true-up" report was developed to compare scanned locations to assigned locations, allowing the client to determine what percentage of assets are in the correct spaces. This allowed our clients to efficiently determine exactly where their assets were and how they got there, making asset management a breeze.
With our Work Task app enhancements, our clients were able to efficiently determine what percentage of assets are in the correct spaces, saving time and money on misplaced or lost assets. The Asset Scanner offered a fast and simple way to scan and track assets across offices and cities, with detailed data available at the click of a button.
