As your business continues to grow, so will the size of your staff—and your amount of assets, inventory, tools, and supplies. The larger your business, the more important it will be for you to have an effective system in place to ensure that you know where your vital resources are at all times. You may also opt to have certain areas of your business that are restricted to only key employees, or in which sensitive information is stored requiring you to stay on top of who accesses each area. Below are just a few ways in which asset and staff tracking systems will save you both time and money.
Paper Systems Leave Too Much Room For Error
If you currently rely on a paper tracking systems where employees sign in then out, visitors sign in and out—and equipment and other assets are signed in and out, you have much room for opportunity. Even with the most well-intentioned of employees, it is simply too easy for someone to forget to sign in or out, or for your paper data to go missing.
As shocking as it may be, and even with extensive background checks—approximately 75% of all theft is internal. By investing in electronic staff and asset tracking systems, you will both decrease and discourage internal theft. With a regular system audit, the technology will also make recognizing loss and identifying the culprit easier to achieve.
Increased Safety And Security
Not all of your assets are physical items; some of them are sensitive documents and highly confidential information, which may incorporate the overall safety and security of your staff. By investing in staff and asset tracking systems, you can effectively determine which employees have entered each area of your facility—and can provide restricted access when and where it is necessary. You can also quickly and easily see who has accessed what information with great detail—such as the date and time.
