The explosion of powerful mobile technology has created a new category of scanning devices. No longer are users required to carry a dedicated device. A smartphone 6 or tablet allows asset data to be queried or updated wherever and whenever required. Our approach supports any device or operating system (iOS, Android, Windows) and all activity is posted real-time, assuring immediate results. The mobile device is matched with specifically designed software in AssetWIN to support any type of transaction, even some not available through traditional data collection. Most users will pair mobile technology with traditional bar code scanners to achieve best-of-breed data collection technology throughout their asset management environment.
Reliable inventory is central to a successful asset management project. This white paper discusses many of the considerations and possible solutions to make this effort succeed.
