A Better Way to Track IT and Data Center Assets

A Better Way to Track IT and Data Center Assets

How RFID is improving IT asset management.

Manual tracking is a thing of the past. Well, almost.

While RFID is becoming the increasingly popular choice for IT asset management, some organizations have yet to make the move and continue to manually track inventory. In fact, according to our research, 60% of data centers are still conducting manual inventory counts.

There are a number of reasons organizations site for their choice to manually track their inventory — they’ve always done it that way—but the manual method for IT asset tracking is proving to be less and less desirable. From the length of time it takes to conduct a manual inventory, to the people and cost associated and the lack of accuracy in the final output, manual inventory counts can be a costly habit for your business. But here’s the good news: there is a better way.

RFID-based IT asset management is blazing a trail of innovation and creating new industry standards. It’s changing the face of how data centers and IT managers inventory and report to meet security and regulatory compliance requirements. With the option to automate IT asset management, organizations are benefiting from faster, more regular inventories and automated updates for better asset utilization. Not to mention the ability to meet finance and compliance reporting requirements!

I’m watching this shift take place firsthand. I work alongside the game-changers and I have a front row seat to customer successes day in and day out. When it comes to IT asset management, RFID just offers more options for a complete enterprise asset management solution.

More accuracy.
More security.
More peace of mind.

RFID technology allows organizations to simply, accurately, securely and reliably track their most critical IT assets while saving time, money, and valuable resources. The best part – you don’t have to change your process. Automating the inventory process takes the guesswork out, and puts reliability in. And who doesn’t like the sound of that?
