Managing IT assets is one of the most difficult jobs for organizations trying to perform an inventory. IT assets grow each year and with the addition of new servers, new laptops, and computers, your inventory count continues to go up but your available time to do an inventory does not. Utilizing a traditional inventory of manual processes like barcode tags or Excel spreadsheets can leave you with little time and unable to locate IT assets that move or are considered ‘missing’. This is why IT assets are one of the best ways to utilize RFID technology for a fixed asset inventory. It can help provide real-time tracking of your assets and greatly reduce the time and hassle it takes to complete it each year.
RFID fixed asset management utilizes small RFID tags that are placed on your assets. With the help of an RFID reader, you can walk around and pick up the IT assets you are looking for while doing an inventory. These tags do not require you to have a line-of-sight to scan the assets in the way that barcode tags require.
Here are some of the top reasons to switch from manual processes to RFID for your IT assets:
