Organizations are becoming more flexible. Workplaces are therefore continuously changing, which makes managing it a lot more complex and disordered. What furniture is where, in what condition is it and what is the value? To make management and maintenance as easy as possible, Ahrend introduces the Ahrend Asset Management System. The tool for a thorough inventory and valuation of furniture.
The Ahrend Asset Management System 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 your furniture. The product identification can also be applied to existing furniture.
Adding RFID to the QR code provides the following additional benefits:
Radio-frequency identification (RFID) is a technology which allows you to save and read information from tags on a long distance. Multiple assets in a distance of 10 meters can be scanned with one push on the button. Besides, a RFID network can build which automatically traces your furniture. This way you can easily charge the internal costs to the department where the furniture is placed.
In daily use, furniture can (unintentionally) get dirty or damaged. Thanks to the QR code, every member of your staff can easily identify a product or make a service call. The administrator will judge the notification and will forward it directly to Ahrend if needed. This way the service call gets resolved quickly and efficiently.
In the Netherlands there are several suppliers active within the Facility Management Information Systems market. Amongst them are: Axxerion, Facilitor, Famas, NPQ, Planon, TOPdesk and Ultimo.
Ahrend Asset Management works as an independent system, but also works as an addition to another FMIS. Ahrend offers the possibility to connect your current FMIS to the Asset Management System. This way you can have a total overview of all your assets, and all the specified information regarding status and value.
Ahrend Asset Management offers an accurate and up-to-date overview of all your furniture items, makes maintenance, replacement and reordering more easy and optimises the life cycle of the furniture. It’s not only sustainable but creates savings too!
