Innovative Enterprise Inventory, Assets and Tracking Management System Eliminates Customization Cost in a Tight Economy
ASAP launches Passport to give IT departments a powerful, easily configurable and customizable asset tracking software—no custom code, no hidden costs.
San Jose, CA (October 15, 2008)—The experience of purchasing enterprise software is full of costs on the back end. Over time, the cost of purchasing a system may be smaller than the cost of updating the software to meet current business needs. Revising and updating software field names alone can cost several hundred thousand dollars over hundreds of fields that may need changing on a regular basis. Suddenly, customization becomes a significant expenditure.
Veteran technology company ASAP Systems today announced the launch of Passport, an asset- management software system designed to eliminate “cost-creep” in this segment. The SQL-based platform bar-code system is a suite of products, including Passport Assets, Passport Inventory, Passport Checkout and Passport Suite, that manages the entire lifecycle of inventory and assets. This powerful flexible, scalable system is designed specifically as a solution for easing tracking pains for manufacturing inventory tracking and facilities management for industries such as electronics, healthcare, construction and government.
“The number one complaint we hear from potential customers about tracking management systems on the market today is the considerable on-going cost of making changes to the software to mirror changes in their business environment,” stated Elie Jean Touma, ASAP Systems’ CEO. “We listened to what users, IT managers, manufacturing and facilities managers, CEO’s and CFO’s said would be their ideal system and developed Passport to meet those requirements. It is a perfect turnkey solution for small-medium sized departments, national organizations and large global corporations because of its scalability and its ability to integrate with existing accounting, ERP and CRM solutions.”
CEO and CFOs have a hierarchy visibility to their data; IT managers have full control over the back end databases, security, and user setting. Key features include user defined field names, reports, labels and dashboards as well as exports to common formats such as Excel, PDF and HTML. The system works with all standard technologies including SQL Databases, Windows Operating Systems and Windows Mobile 5 mobile operating systems. Product demos can be viewed at www.asapsystems.com.
