I like that Asset Management is built into our existing call tracking software. Because the asset manager is inside the call tracker, when a call is submitted with the node name (includes identifying information like campus, building, department, asset tag and computer type) is added to the call, the tech is able to quickly view the configuration of the specific computer, like what hardware it has, who it belongs to, last reimage or rebuild date, etc.
It can sometimes be difficult to search for a specific computer/device. I know that Apple TVs are in our catelog / inventory, but if i type "Apple TV cherwell cannot find the doftware, but if I type in an asset tag, it comes up with the title of the item as "Apple TV bla bla bla"
Use this product if you are able to integrate it with Cherwell call tracking and other software. We are able to easily see affected computers and their status with this tool.
Tracking who has what equipment checked out to who, who issued it, when to get it back, etc. is very helpful. We also can see the individual specs, like how much memory, storage, etc is in the computer. Because it is all in one place, it makes us more organized, and Cherwell easily links out to other software and manager software as well. We can send preset emails to customers when their computers may be due for a replacement.
