The Secret to Simplifying Your Hardware Asset Management Process

Tracking and managing hardware assets is necessary for keeping tabs on your physical devices and their data across your organization.

Not only is it a requirement for compliance purposes, but it also helps businesses save money by leveraging their current assets and budgeting appropriately for future expenses. However, as any IT professional will tell you, efficiently managing hundreds (and sometimes thousands) of assets from procurement to disposal is easier said than done. 

Hardware Asset Management Doesn’t Have to Be Hard

Modernizing your hardware asset management might sound daunting, but it doesn’t have to be. If you haven’t already done so, the first step to asset management freedom is to get out of those spreadsheets and into a digital process that offers advanced workflows and automation. 

Say Goodbye to Time-Consuming Spreadsheets

Manual data entry and tracking leave a lot of room for human error and inaccurate information, not to mention that it is a considerable time commitment.

With ServiceNow’s Hardware Asset Management Application, HAM Pro, you can quickly and easily identify what assets you have, where they are located, and if you are utilizing them to their fullest potential.
