San Jose, California (PRWEB) January 06, 2015
ASAP Systems, a leading provider of inventory management and asset tracking systems, teamed up with Octo Consulting Group to help them effectively track IT assets during their recent expansion. The system’s scalable functionalities met Octo’s asset management needs, especially with regard to employee onboarding and relocations.
“Passport made it significantly easier for us to manage and track where our assets are, who is responsible for them, and helped us better allocate our time,” expressed Cameron Brent, IT Manager at Octo Consulting Group.
The barcode-based inventory system’s check in/out functionality for assets allows Octo to optimize their employee onboarding process by accurately tracking shared office resources. As employees are hired, or relocated to one of the two new offices, Octo can easily loan assets, such as desktops, laptops, and monitors to them. In addition, the functionality enables the IT department to assign due dates to each checked out asset. Therefore, Brent’s team is able to improve asset control and reduce the headaches involved in this workflow task.
Octo was able to tackle short-term inventory goals during their expansion and consider long-term needs because of Passport’s built in scalability. The company selected the modules (specific options of functionality) they wanted to start using right away, easily removed unnecessary features free of charge, and looked to take advantage of add-on modules that could provide further value down the road.
“We felt the Passport system easily met our needs and it included a number of different add-on modules that would allow our asset tracking system to grow,” stated Brent.
