The Challenge

In 2021, the City Administration of Püttlingen faced a significant challenge: How to effectively manage its inventory, particularly IT assets. It was recognized that existing asset management processes needed improvement, and that managers and employees required comprehensive oversight of the inventory and related data. One of the main goals was to reduce the time spent monitoring and managing equipment to improve workflows and operations.

Another challenge was managing assets across different locations, including the town hall and various facilities overseen by the City Administration of Püttlingen. A system was needed to ensure that each location was assigned the necessary assets and equipment, and that these were properly tracked and accounted for at all times.

This led Püttlingen to Timly, and they were quickly convinced by the solution’s comprehensive features and ease of use – and by the fact that Timly is already the tool of choice for many government and public sector organizations. This success is largely due to Timly’s high level of customization and flexibility, allowing it to be tailored to unique use cases and needs.

The Solution

With Timly, the City Administration of Püttlingen implemented a robust IT asset management system. From desktop computers to printers and software, employees can now easily and reliably manage all types of IT equipment using Timly’s IT Asset Management solution.

Each asset managed in Timly has its own digital record, which can be fully customized with various fields. Whether it’s the purchase date and price, serial number, or warranty date, everything can be recorded. Additionally, asset maintenance can be planned and scheduled in advance, and all related activities and documents can be stored in Timly, providing the administration with everything in one place.

Another advantage for Püttlingen is the ability to create multiple locations in Timly – from the town hall to other facilities they own and manage – and assign and manage assets for each location. This segmentation ensures that each entity sees and has access to only the assets relevant to them.
