Facilities managers have a lot on their plates. They're responsible for everything from maintaining the physical condition of buildings and grounds to ensuring the safety of the people on them. A key part of this is asset management, a process that can be potentially time-consuming and complex, but it doesn't have to be.
That's where our new asset management features come in. We've been working hard to develop a comprehensive and user-friendly asset management solution that will make your job easier.
So let’s have a look at what’s new:
- Supplier and manufacturer management: You can now manage a list of your asset suppliers and manufacturers in the Settings area and associate the relevant assets to them. This makes it easy to track who is responsible for each asset and to contact them if necessary.
- Asset type and category management: Users with the relevant permissions can manage a list of asset types and categories. This allows you to customise the asset management system to meet the specific needs of your organisation. For example, you can create asset types for different types of equipment, such as HVAC systems, lighting fixtures, and office furniture.
- Asset creation and maintenance: You can now create new assets or asset models for your asset register. Upon creation, high-level asset details are captured, as well as order information and any associated images or files. You can also view a list of your assets that is filterable by various asset characteristics and view the details of an individual asset on a dedicated view page. On this page, you can also carry out key actions such as relocating assets or linking them to upcoming work, as well as view an asset's lifecycle details.
- Improved asset schema: We've improved the way assets are created and maintained in the system by introducing a new asset schema and migrating existing asset records to a new asset table. This makes the asset management system more efficient and scalable.
We'll be continuing to improve our asset management system in the upcoming weeks, so keep an eye out for our next update to learn more!
