Enterprise asset management (EAM) is an organizational method that usually comes with software.
Many companies produce EAM software using a deviation in database structure. EAM software is able to work along with other operating systems. It shares data on mixed platforms — Windows 98/NT/2000, Sun Solaris, Linux and others. It employs such databases as the Oracle, MS SQL, DB2, Informix and Sybase.
EAM software is efficient. It operates without interrupting your other users’ daily activities. Your physical assets can be managed by analyzing the causes of their possible failures. Failure modes for some assets range in the thousands. By using EAM software, you can methodically examine all of these failures — their causes and effects – and, consequently, set up preventive measures and maintenance guidelines.
This comprehensive, web-based IT asset management software performs automatic inventories of your assets and creates a dynamic audit. It instantly identifies the actual locations of your assets, even if they are distant or located in other networks of your organization.
EAM software provides you comprehensive and accurate information about the condition of your assets and sends you updates. You can quickly record and run related searches and reports regarding your assets that will help you and your agents easily pinpoint problems and speed up finding solutions.
The software also calculates the cost of improvements and rollouts. It can manage the daily operations of logistical units, allowing you to engage in freight forwarding and transport unit repairs. It also produces customized reports on usage and creates estimates on what might possibly happen, so you can anticipate needs and costs and prepare solutions to problems that may arise.
Software manufacturers also recognize the importance of system security in your organization. Database lockout, as well as encryption and control of multiple passwords, hidden or read-only file, and multi-user modes are added software features.
EAM software enables you to cut down on expenses, to boost return on your investment and to increase your productivity. It helps maximize the lifetime value of your complex assets — from their purchase to their disposal — and align them closely with your business strategies and objectives.
