The impact of accurate data
Using antiquated or highly suspect asset data jeopardizes the success of any IT project from the very start of the project’s conception and planning.
Why is inventory considered a best-practices approach?
Current asset data is normally configured through various sources and multiple data bases, which affects its consistency, uniformity and accuracy.
Historically, organizations have not completed a wall-to-wall inventory in at least five years, creating large accuracy gaps in the currently managed databases.
Often, different organizations believe another organization is responsible for performing asset inventory and asset validation services.
Precise, quantifiable and executable data speeds project implementation time and drives down cost while increasing critical project success factors.
Accurate inventory records increase customer responsiveness and shorten the troubleshooting process.
A solid fixed asset record assists in rationalizing budget forecasting improvements and adjustments.
