Making sure your Assets are well maintained and cared for

Most individuals, companies and CEO’s of big corporations understand that assets need to be looked after. Therefore asset management is normally one of those automatically built-in routines in any business’s planning.


Even though the term often refers to activities related to financial planning and the management of, for example, investors’ assets, it is also widely used in other sectors. One such example is the world of IT that covers a broad spectrum, right from staff, software and hardware – all of these are assets to the firm.


The world of IT is changing all the time too, and even though there is a pronounced migration towards the cloud, hardware is still very important, and will be for many years to come. Asset management of hardware, therefore, is an important factor with regard to the health of any company.


Over time companies invest substantial amounts in different systems to ensure the successful, ongoing operation of their business. Large amounts are thus often invested in different assets, for instance hardware, which must be maintained and looked after – but also, from time to time, adjusted or replaced. All of this has to be planned within the – sometimes strict – parameters of fiscal responsibility.


It is important to budget, also to understand how much you can invest in IT hardware and those processes that drive the IT segment of your business. Asset management is, therefore, of great importance. It is important that cost-effective measures be put in place to ensure that the assets are used in accordance with the company’s vision, to ensure that these assets are indeed used in such a way as to contribute towards the ultimate success of the organisation.


Planning such processes and making sure they are managed properly are sometimes a task that companies prefer to outsource to specialists who do this all the time. This frees staff members who could otherwise get bogged down by these tasks, to concentrate on other areas in the business and add value there.


Asset management therefore becomes the responsibility of a service provider that specialises in this kind of assistance. The company you choose to manage this part of your business should, obviously, offer the relevant knowledge and experience to assist you to maximise your investment, to ensure your assets are used to their full potential.


They should be the ones to establish what the value of your assets is and how to make sure you stay within your limits, but also to advise if theybelieve you can invest further in this area of your organisation. Therefore the asset management company should make sure overspend never becomes a threat to your financial stability, but at the same time they should analyse whether you should, for your purposes, invest more in this sector.


Hardware, just like software and other assets, age with time. The company that manages this department on your behalf should be able to advise you when you need new equipment, and also when certain hardware and machines are ready to be disposed of. This should be one of the tasks this company undertakes on your behalf, in a responsible manner that does not breach your regions by-laws, for example.


Asset management ensures that due processes are followed with regard to acquisition, looking after and disposing of your company’s assets – such as hardware. The company that you employ for this purpose must work in an organised fashion that includes, among, the following steps: compile an inventory; establish which legacy equipment is ready for modernisation, and which should be disposed of; regular reporting, and offering advice to make sure the management runs smoothly.


Most companies can benefit from this service, especially if they employ the services of an experienced, well-respected service provider.
