Keep Things in Order With Equipment Tracking Software

The question of the right solution for the management of operating resources occupies many companies. Various methods are already available for different sectors and requirements. While Software as a Service (SaaS) is becoming more and more popular, the use of resource management software is also on the rise.

In every respect, in contrast to conventional methods (keyword: Excel lists), management costs can be reduced while a clear overview including complete documentation is created. Depending on the provider, the relevant data can even be conveniently recorded and accessed via app, making it easier for team members to work on site.

As soon as the operating resources in the company are to be managed, there is soon an almost unmanageable amount of questions and tasks. It is clear that a software for effective resource management should provide a clear overview of the current situation. This is achieved by making relevant data visible at a glance and calling it up with just a few clicks.

In this way, primarily valuable time and costs are saved. In addition, there is a lower error rate when collecting data, which alternatively would have to be entered manually in various lists and across departments. With a lot of qualitative data, purchasing decisions, investment planning and running costs can be more easily monitored.

These aspects are important when a company has to issue various operating resources to different employees with individual skill sets on an ongoing basis. The topics of shrinkage and damage are not unknown in this context, especially in the construction and handicraft industries. The latter can be optimally recorded by employees with modern equipment management and digital tool management. As a company manager, you have a real-time overview of what really counts.

Minimise Losses: How Resource Management Helps You

Whether a customer’s project or your own company, downtimes are often related to missing or defective equipment. While chaos reigns, tools and accessories are searched for and, in the worst case, already used by colleagues elsewhere. With digital resource management, tools, projects and resources can be directly assigned in advance.

This means that employees always know that their equipment is available and can plan and reserve it for projects. Using inventory software with a project planning function, allocating resources can be planned or requested well in advance.

The demands on software for resource management vary between industries and companies. Nevertheless, there is a range of basic functions that have always proven themselves in practice.

While controlling and purchasing can avoid incorrect and duplicate purchases with qualitative data collection, employees in the direct work environment tend to rely on flexibility in the collection of inventory information. Ideally, this is ensured by an app with a barcode scanner, which provides each employee with their own profile.

These Are the Functions of a Resource Management App

User Roles:

In an asset management software for resource management tools, various users can be created who can work in the system with different access rights. While a managing director or division manager has a complete overview, employees or external persons with limited rights can only view the previously selected information.

Scheduling Function:

Usually, inventory apps in this category also share planning, scheduling, and allocating functions. This creates the basis for internal resource management. It becomes interesting when apps for resource management techniques can convince with special functions.

Optimise Processes:

Integrated functions such as barcode scans (on objects), tool details, document storage or damage reports. Depending on the scope of the app, the latter can be sent directly with a photo from the employee’s smartphone.

GPS-Tracking:

Beyond this scope, GPS data for equipment, vehicles and other mobile resources are also very welcome in construction and craft companies. This allows you to trace which person had which piece of equipment, when and where.

Storing Important Data Decentrally: This Is How SAAS for Resources Works

For SMEs, maintaining their own programmes in a failure-proof manner involves a great deal of effort. Often, they do not have the necessary infrastructure and expertise to process incidents in a data protection-compliant manner. For this reason, the SaaS model (“Software as a Service”) has become more and more established over the last few years.

Here, all data is stored in qualified data centres, which ensures manageable and plannable monthly costs without having to cope with unmanageable IT expenses. With most apps for resource management processes, costs are only incurred for monthly provision. There is therefore no need for your own IT.

Using a resource management software also ensures that all services are always accessible from anywhere. Those who work in the construction or craft industry will certainly see this as an important point. Depending on the product and service, the companies behind SaaS applications always take care of the further development of the app.

The view, which can often also be used on the computer, is thus regularly expanded with functions.

Plannable, Scalable and Always at Hand – The Mobile Inventory Software for Businesses

As you can see, there are many good reasons for using a mobile inventory app in addition to classic types of resource management software. In most cases, the important data for controlling and management can be accessed by default via a web view on the computer.

This facilitates the working methods of many employees and does not force everyone to use a computer – or even a smartphone. Working hours are also spared and made more efficient through the use of a resource management app.

For companies with a focus on construction and trade, the resource management process usually pays off within the first few weeks. It is quickly recognised that processes have previously been fragmentary and disorganised, which can now be changed.

The SaaS model for digital inventory management is the most cost-effective solution for companies without their own IT.

What A Good Maintenance App Can Do

Many companies only realise that maintenance software is needed when it is too late: an important order is due, but the relevant machine suddenly makes suspicious noises. An official letter announces that inspection deadlines have passed or an employee suffers an accident because he was using something with a previously unknown defect.

Timly Tool Software – As Professional as Your Company

Especially in industry and trade, companies need an almost unmanageable number of tools and machines. This is made more difficult by the fact that the work equipment is used at different locations and by changing personnel. Working according to the principle of "trust" often proves to be unsuitable for everyday use, especially in large companies.
