Asset Management FAQs

What is asset management?

Asset management is the ability to track, manage and maintain assets associated with facilities or infrastructure to keep them operational. Asset management is important because it helps organizations understand where labor and budget resources are being spent in order to optimize operations.  

What is asset management software?

Asset management software is a tool created to help facility and infrastructure asset managers keep track of the assets it takes to run a building or community. These platforms are designed to manage and track all work and parts associated with repairs and replacement of vital systems needed to maintain service levels. The right asset management software keeps their operations flowing smoothly without interruption or downtime due to failed assets. 

What should I look for in asset management software?

Asset management software should include tools that best meet your organizational needs and goals. Every organization may be at a different level in their asset management journey. Some organizations only need to track work orders to ensure facilities are above a certain standard. Others require reporting, GIS, analytics, asset tracking and more to meet their needs so they can be the most efficient in their asset management daily work. It’s important to identify other tools built into an asset management platform that can help you become more efficient.

How does asset management software help in audits?

Audits can occur in many forms. Whether from a regulatory agency, internally or from community members, asset management software helps maintain records and data that can be retrieved and reviewed by different stakeholders. It’s important to note that not all asset management software is built the same. When picking a platform, make sure it is equipped with reporting capabilities to avoid any issues during an audit. Preferably, your asset management solution should be cloud-based to avoid any data loss associated with self-hosted systems.
