Asset and Compliance Tracking - (ACT)

Managing an organisation's assets may appear on the surface a simple task, everything in its right place available at the right time but in large services tracking your assets is a challenge. Companies lose stock, orders can be imprecise and people can end up requiring assets which have simply been misplaced. In the case of a service such as the police or military not having the right equipment in the right place could lead to a loss of life.

In a organisation where the quality of these assets and their maintenance history is of critical importance to the service of the organisation such as the Health Service, Fire Service and the Automotive Industry, these problems are compounded by the inevitable testing of these assets. If a faulty asset ends up being used then the problem can become a potentially fatal one and unless the organisation can prevent these situations occurring the repercussions could be grave.

How does an organisation manage these problems against hundreds of thousands of assets in a manner that every employee can undertake simply and efficiently in order to eliminate risk, based around their location, maintenance and condition?

Brite-Sparks ACT supplies the answer. ACT enables an organisation to locate all of their assets in a variety of manners and provides the ability to prove maintenance over the entire lifetime of an asset. There will no longer be the possibility of faulty, lost or damaged equipment causing your company loss. From a simple set of equipment consisting of a handheld barcode scanner, brite-sparks ACT software and simple barcode printing software you can manage your organisations entire asset maintenance schedule, track containers, report on all of your assets via their location, condition and even give customers the ability to know what an entire shipment contains in just one scan!

All the people responsible for maintaining assets can be reminded at any time before the test date by the ACT system to test a specific asset at a specific location, if these tests are ignored, their supervisor can be informed and if tests are still not carried out this escalation feature can continue until all parties ultimately responsible for the asset are informed. Brite-Sparks ACT even offers integration with Microsoft Outlook calendaring to provide alerts when assets are due for testing or missing.

Your asset record can be managed by Brite-Sparks, offering security and reliability at a budget cost, or you can host the intranet version offering your organisation the ability to organise the support and backup of your asset registry through your regular supplier and the ability to add extra security as you see fit.
