Asset management

The PASS Locator Asset and compliance management system

The PASS Locator asset management system records the ownership, movement, location, maintenance and H &S compliance of company property. This 'property' includes equipment, machinery, buildings and their contents and is referred to as 'Assets'.  It uses barcode printers and scanners to accurately log the data and is configurable to adapt to your current practices. It automates the process with schedules, movement records and detailed analysis of your assets. The scanners will read either barcodes or RFID tags. The software licence is a single payment with no subscription so there are no annual licence fees . It is available either as a terrestrial system to protect any GDPR data or cloud based with Azure or  other external hosting. Applications include:

How it works

Scheduled Audits

Part of asset management is scheduling audits. This means defining when they need checking and then setting audit intervals. The audit will give you information about the following and enables you to take quick action when a problem is identified.
-The condition of the asset
-Cost and depreciation
-Life expectancy
-Maintenance carried out
-Current owner and location
Audit schedule

Issues to employees

Each time company property is issued to an employee, whether its a phone, laptop, sales kit, samples, tools or anything else, a simple scan of the items barcode will register it to that persons location. Similarly on return of the items a second scan logs it back in to the company care. This means that at a glance you can see exactly who has got what and where it is. Signatures can be captured with signature pads.

Maintenance  and compliance 

The Locator system records maintenance and health and safety checks throughout the site.  You set up your own tests and checks for each item type whether its a machine like a PC or photocopier, or a  buildings  safety compliance. For example  routine records of toilet cleaning. The maintenance schedules are similar to the audit schedules but include the tests to be carried out. Checks are recorded with the PDA and detailed reports run to provide histories of the checks.

Searches

A series of filters defining, recipients, item codes, senders, date range and location parameters enables you to refine the reports narrowly. If the filters still provide too much information then the search option will find the exact record you are looking for within the reports taking you to the line entry directly.
