Why Build a Digital Asset Management System Today

Businesses create new assets every day, but many find it difficult to store and manage them online. Here’s why you should build a digital asset management system using Caspio’s no-code platform.

A global survey found that the pandemic pushed businesses to prioritize their move to the cloud, with 40% of organizations currently accelerating their transition to cloud-based tools and services. This includes implementing cloud-based content storage systems and searching for robust online database solutions for their dispersed workforce.

Implementing a hybrid or work-from-anywhere setup requires some form of remote access and cloud storage. Businesses need to succeed in digitizing asset management in a post-pandemic world.

A robust asset management system will help because it can streamline the storage, retrieval and use of critical digital assets. However, the application needs to be tailor-fit with the features and functions your business needs. The app must adjust to your processes, not the other way around.

The Caspio platform gives you access to best-in-class cloud technology and industry-leading data security. Most of all, Caspio provides a no-code development platform that’s fully extensible so you can build the exact application you need.

4 Benefits of Asset Management

Empower your organization to keep track and manage assets that keep your business going. Here are four reasons to use online asset management to improve your operations.

Keep Assets Running

Purchased assets are expected to generate revenue, so keeping them in top shape is a priority. IT assets, for example, are kept in good running condition through scheduled maintenance, regular checks and occasional software updates. An asset management app allows you to track all these tasks, giving you foresight into vital hardware repairs or replacements.

Streamlines Audits

Hybrid office arrangements, multiple business locations or widespread field service operations complicate asset auditing — a process that’s already long and exhausting even with a small inventory. A proper asset management app simplifies auditing by allowing multiple teams to update a single, centralized online database instead of numerous reports in varying formats.

Easy Asset Recovery

All the data related to an asset is logged in an asset management app. In the event that an asset is sent to the wrong department or location, tracking and identifying it becomes easier. Coupled with other technologies like barcode identification and GPS tracking, an asset management app allows faster recovery of misplaced hardware, saving you money for replacements.

Support for Decision-Makers

A robust asset management app provides decision-makers with a wide range of tools for financial forecasting and analysis. A comprehensive asset dashboard, for example, gives executives an overview of how the company’s assets are distributed, utilized and maintained. This helps business leaders identify areas to address or optimize.

How to Build Digital Asset Management Apps in 3 Steps

Step 1: Set Up Your Database

Define your database structure from scratch with custom fields and table relationships.

Step 3: Build App Interfaces

Popular Asset Management Use Cases

Digital asset management apps help businesses increase the overall efficiency, productivity and security of their registered assets. Here are examples of popular use cases across different industries.

1

IT Asset Management

Managing your organization’s IT infrastructure can be challenging without the right tools. Your IT staff ends up spending excess hours reconciling software and hardware inventory, determining which assets are still supported by their vendors and other administrative tasks better off automated. Implement a custom IT asset management system to optimize maintenance and distribution workflows for resource-strapped IT teams.

2

Media Asset Management

Want to manage your company’s rich media library from a centralized source? Create your own media asset management app to store and track high-volume video and multimedia files. Include features that consolidate asset views, user comments, ratings and other relevant details. You can even monitor the entire development lifecycle of a particular media asset with custom permission levels in every stage.

3

Financial Asset Management

Transform your financial services workflows with an investment management app that safeguards assets from inaccuracy, mishandling and errors. Create tools that generate insights for your asset managers to better facilitate segregated client accounts and achieve the best possible results. Include app features like dynamic calculations, pivot tables and record level security for a streamlined central interface.

4

Enterprise Asset Management

Businesses tend to be asset intensive entities that go beyond IT, media and finance alone. Examples include manufacturing plants maintaining hundreds of machines and shipping companies that control their own transportation fleet. Developing an enterprise asset management system unique to your organization maximizes asset utilization, boosts maintenance activities and provides effective oversight.
