Regardless of industry, businesses are relying more and more on technology to succeed. As a consequence, IT teams are faced with the complex task of managing and keeping track of a growing number of devices and software. In the hybrid workplace where there is a fusion of personal and company devices in multiple locations throughout the week. Effectively managing all of the IT assets your employee's use can be a real challenge. Many businesses do not have a handle on managing their IT assets through their entire lifecycle from procurement to disposal.

IT Asset Management is an essential part of business success as it ensures employees have access to the technology they need to do their jobs and aims to optimise these resources so that money isn't wasted on technology or software that isn't necessary or not being used. 

With the rapid increase in connected devices and more endpoints than ever before, taking control is crucial because IT assets are costly to acquire and maintain. 

5 reasons why IT Asset Management is key to your business:

  1. Visibility - Know what you have
    Don't rely on spreadsheets; gain complete visibility to maximise the performance and value of your hardware and software assets.

  2.  Security - Protect what your have
    Ensure everything is accounted for; track your IT assets properly to lower the security risks from unknown, lost, or misconfigured hardware and software.

  3.  Lifecycle Management - Manage what you have
    Manage all of your IT assets from procurement to disposal. Get insights and alerts about when to purchase, update, and maintain your IT assets in order to get the most out of every IT investment. 

  4.  Cost Optimisation - Maximise what you have
    Avoid shelfware and redundant software purchase; get more value from your IT assets by only paying for what you actually use. 
  5.  Go Beyond - Get even more out of what you have
    Take advantage of automation and self-service; unify your IT Service Management (ITSM) and IT Asset Management (ITAM) processes to improve IT service, enhance the digital employee experience and empower your business.

Take that first step and gain visibility into what you have. With clear insights into what assets you have, where they are, how much they’re costing you, and how they’re performing throughout their lifecycle from cradle to grave, you can get the most out of what you have and achieve significant efficiency and productivity gains.
