1.What is Asset Management?

Asset Management Software is an essential tool that helps to keep track of all the assets in the organization. It is a multidisciplinary approach to business that assists businesses in their day-to-day operations. Asset Management software is generally an integrated system used to deploy all hardware and software inventories.

In simple words, it is a centralized database used to track a blend of intangible (patents, trademarks, copyrights) and tangible (land, vehicles, equipment) business assets and helps in monitoring the functionality of assets.

4.Categories and Types

Assets can vary significantly within an organization. They can be related to computer software, or they could be company vehicles. It is always a good idea to create categories for assets to have an enhanced structure. To navigate to the Categories and Types page, hover over the assets tab in the main navigation, then select Categories and Types. 

Here, a list of asset categories can be seen within the organization. Similar to warehouses, you can add, edit, and delete categories as required. Two specific options are available for categories. The first option, asset tracking, enables this asset to be tracked. The second option, vehicle properties, signifies that this category is for vehicles. Therefore, any asset created under that category will have vehicle properties in it as well. 

Asset Types are types of the asset within a category. For example, you may have Mac and Windows computers within the Computer category. Similar to the categories sections, here you can add, edit and delete types as required. The depreciation field allows you to calculate depreciation for that asset type based on the time period provided.

Certain assets need to be serviced regularly to maintain their value. CorporateStack Assets allows you to track whenever an asset is sent for servicing. To view the assets that have a service history, click on the Assets Services in the main navigation. 

Here, a list of assets with a service history are displayed. At the top of this page, you can filter asset service histories by category. These categories are Pending, Open (default), and Closed.

Additionally, asset services can be filtered by other properties as well, such as Time, Asset Code, etc. 

The asset service list also shows summarized details about the request. These details can be modified by clicking on the settings icon to the left of each service request. To mark a service as completed, modify the request first. Then click on the completed box at the bottom of the pop-out window.
