What is Asset Monitor as a key part of an enterprise mobility strategy?
Lost assets cost thousands of pounds per annum to replace, has a huge impact on operational efficiency, wastes management’s time and can result in inaccurate budgeting when replacement devices are required. Asset Monitor is the solution to monitoring, controlling and recovering your business’ shared mobile devices.
How does it work?
Asset Monitor utilises hourly device data to identify what its location is, who has used it last, and whether it has been returned to its charging point at the end of a shift
Users look at a simple portal interface (available via PC or mobile) at the end of every shift to check that all devices have been returned to charge
Devices not returned can be easily located and last user identified**
Ability to make the device ring by clicking in dashboard, making it easier to locate with audibility
What are the benefits?
Easy to use – a simple application accessed via a portal
Dual role – facilitates both monitoring and recovering of devices
Build on existing investments – overlays existing compatible mobile device management (MDM) tools***
Hardware-free – A simple-to-manage software-based solution
Linked to The Barcode Warehouse Managed Services system, so devices in the repair loop are excluded from reporting
By reporting individual user behaviour and monitoring, Asset Monitor encourages responsible device use
By utilising the charging bay as the ‘home’ location you can be sure that devices are always being charged when not in active use
