What are my assets?
Typical assets include:

  • Tools and equipment (mechanical, electrical, electronic, lifting gear and IT equipment)
  • Industrial components (valves, instrumentation, rotating equipment and pipework)
  • Vehicles (plant, machinery, fleet , railway rolling stock, trailers)
  • Stock (warehouse inventory, consumables, spares)
  • Buildings (commercial and residential)
  • Employees (tasks, time and attendance)

The Assettagz core:

  • creates your register of assets and assigns RFID tags
  • manages asset location, status and condition
  • manages inspection schedules, including overdue alerts
  • captures inspection results in the field on handhelds using customisable forms
  • provides easy access to all documents relating to assets
  • delivers flexible reporting

The modular design of Assettagz ensures that you only select for the modules that are relevant to your business. Current modules include:

Hire Manager - tracks tagged assets through on-hire / off-hire or issue and return processes (whether internal or external), including signature capture on mobile computers andoptional ID cards to identify the hirer

Workshop Manager - automates work orders (picking lists, work instructions, scheduled inspections, pre-planned maintenance) providing your employees with an automated task list on their mobile computers. In addition, detailed information about spare parts or components of assets (part numbers, supplier information, costs), ensures easy availability of information, reducing repair times and driving real cost of ownership analysis

Integration Manager - flexibly integrates to back-office systems using web services, allowing a powerful and seamless connection to your core inventory, accounting or business management systems

Assettagz runs on Windows mobile computers which synchronise to a secure web hosted database via Local Area Network (LAN), Wireless LAN or GPRS (mobile data) connections. Your assets can be tagged using RFID tags, barcodes or GPS tracking devices.

  • Assets tagged with RFID tags or barcodes can be instantly scanned and identified using mobile computers which then synchronise with the web hosted database
  • Assets fitted with GPS tracking devices can easily be monitored via our secure website

We manage the web hosted database and website in a secure data centre with full monitoring, backup and disaster recovery facilities, ensuring optimum performance, maximum availability and minimal impact on your IT infrastructure.

Assettagz can improve the efficiency of your entire asset management process and helps to address four of the most important issues facing any organisation today:

Long-life battery powered GPS tracking with in-built RFID asset management

It is ideal for those who want to track high value non-powered items, or those that only need to know an asset location once a day rather than minute-by-minute. Light and compact at 15cm x 6cm x 2cm, this self-contained unit has no external wires or connections so is easy to fit and maintain yourself. We used to rely on power from the lights so could only check where our trailers were when the lights were switched on.
