Organizations are becoming more flexible and more complex and the workplace is constantly changing. This has made the task of managing the workplace more complex. Keeping a clear picture is difficult, what furniture is where and what condition is it in, and what is its value? Making a thorough inventory and evaluation will give you this essential overview. But do you have the right resources to manage that?
Ahrend Asset Management offers you the perfect solution. Giving you a clear picture about the status of your furniture at every site around the globe, on every floor in every room, at the press of a button.
Each piece of furniture is provided with an RFID tag and a unique QR code in our factory. The furniture is linked to the Ahrend Asset Management System, which gives you real-time insight into which furniture is in place. The product identification can also be applied to existing furniture. Moreover Asset Management offers you the possibility to add assets yourself.
Radio-frequency identification (RFID) is a technology that can save information over a long distance, that can be read through RFID-tags (attached to the furniture). With RFID, multiple assets can be scanned(up to 10 metres) at once at the push of a button. At the same time RFID networks can be installed through which you can automatically trace your furniture. This feature enables you to charge costs to the department where the furniture is located.
In daily use, furniture can(unintentionally) get dirty or damaged. Thanks to the QR-code, every member of staff can easily identify a product or make a service call. The administrator will judge the notification and will forward it(if needed) directly to Ahrend. This way the service call gets resolved quickly and efficiently.
