Importance of Asset Management in Human Resources Department

HR Chronicle offers a complete HR and Payroll system that takes the employee lifecycle right from Onboarding through to offboarding – for many companies, part of onboarding (and conversely offboarding) is assigning equipment to employees. It could be IT equipment like a laptop or a Mobile phone right through to something more significant like a car but, either way, the company has provided the assets to the employee and, quite rightly, wants them back when the employee leaves.

Asset management is a crucial part of any company to know where the assets are and who oversees them and to whom it’s assigned. An asset may be a smartphone, a SIM card, a laptop, a vehicle etc. are examples of assets. Anything that is essentially the company’s property that has been assigned to an employee for official purposes. If the HR maintains paperwork, if there are more than ten employees, it will be very difficult for the HR to locate the papers, and in some cases, papers may be misplaced and impossible to trace in an emergency. Just assume what will be the scenario if your employee count is more than 50.

HR Chronicle asset management fills the mismanagement gap in such cases. HR chronicle has a robust asset management workflow that allows it to be easily determined to which employee the asset is assigned or allotted, as well as product specifications and expiry date, reminder of warranty expiry among other things.
