AUSTIN, Texas—TAKE Supply Chain, a leading provider of real-time supply chain execution and reverse logistics software solutions, today announces the immediate availability of the company’s Asset Tracking and Maintenance Solution, a Web-based, mobile application that automates asset data collection and improves the tracking, visibility and reporting of fixed, capital and physical assets. The system combines handheld barcode tag printing, RFID scanner technology and a linkage to the data system of record, enabling organizations to make operational decisions based on highly accurate, real-time asset data, while reducing labor costs and improving operational efficiencies by streamlining traditionally manually intensive processes. TAKE Supply Chain’s Asset Tracking and Maintenance solution is based on technologies currently deployed by TAKE Supply Chain and parent company, TAKE Solutions, across various manufacturing, distribution, financial and educational organizations worldwide.

The new system offers unique asset repair and maintenance management functionality that enables organizations to plan and schedule maintenance and services, as well as track all expenses associated with each item’s maintenance history. With the ability to track assets by location, item ID or serial number, the system’s handheld devices feed inventory and maintenance information to the ERP, providing management with a consolidated view of asset status, location and activity. A comprehensive collection of reports provides a real-time view of where assets are, effectively optimizing existing investments and lowering operational costs.

“TAKE Supply Chain has delivered supply chain visibility to organizations for more than a decade; asset tracking is a natural extension to our solution set,” said Warren Sumner, general manager, enterprise software group at TAKE Supply Chain. “This product provides the marketplace with an application that’s easy to use and implement; it simplifies compliance, cuts unnecessary expenditures and helps companies realize a better return on the assets deployed throughout their enterprise.”

Additional functionality provides the capacity to:

  • Reduce inventory auditing time by automating asset registration and barcode tagging, asset inventory, allocation, transfer and warranty/repair/maintenance processes;
  • Streamline asset inventory and conduct asset audits and inventories based on live, precise data;
  • Manage and maintain a complete asset audit trail of location and movement, eliminating concerns about lost, stolen or misplaced items;
  • Facilitate quick, efficient asset transfer and movement;
