Plan asset/ equipment replacement

Set operating/ useful life spans, decommissioning dates and other key information and then track replacement budgets using powerful, automated custom reports.

Equipment Check-in/ Check-out

Always know where your assets are. See when staff have removed equipment from allocated locations, their condition and date of return. Leverage the pro-Asssets® mobile app for staff convenience.

Map sites & asset locations

See up to date asset locations across your own sites and those of your Customers/ Clients. Use Post Codes, Longitudes/ Lattitudes or Northings/ Eastings.
