Asset TraQ is a powerful and highly customizable system designed for organizations that are not satisfied with the plethora of off-the-shelf answers to accounting for equipment and high value furniture. Its strength lies in the suppleness of the mobile scanner software and the ability of users to create ad hoc report listings in using any field in the database to query. Its browser architecture makes it easy for IT to manage, which is especially important in large dispersed organizations.
Equipment management systems are undoubtedly the most common tracking systems to be found. One of our developers used Access to create such as system, without the mobile barcode scanner interface in what he claimed was 15 minutes. Simple programs in a mobile scanner to take inventory and run exceptions reports can take somewhat longer but a journeyman developer should be able to complete it in a day or two with a scanner software development tool.
QueTel’s forte specialty asset system, because of the architecture of the application, the tools we use to develop it, and our ability to produce mobile scanner software that others cannot. The system is configurable. That means small agencies can have a straight-forward database with powerful search and quick reporting capabilities of the core application, but it can be configured and customized to meet the needs of the most demanding and sophisticated of users.
Among standard enhancement options are: use of a product table to standardize descriptions of assets; capture and alert of warranty and usage expiration dates; recording maintenance, calibration, and inspections; group tracking of embedded assets as a unit; and on-line spotting of misplaced or missing assets during physical inventory scanning. These are only representative of the types of enhancement customizations that QueTel can help clients implement.
