Inaccurate tracking of physical assets, where they are located, and who is using them exposes organizations to security breaches, compliance violations, loss of intellectual property, asset management problems, and operational inefficiencies.

Protecting company assets starts with a real-time view of hardware, where it is located, and who is using it. But the explosion of modernized datacenter equipment, mobile workforces, IoT devices, and new asset tracking sensor technology has made IT asset lifecycle management (ITALM) extremely complicated. Companies simply cannot afford to manage ITALM manually: the cost of hardware and data loss, along with potential fines from regulators when the security breach is tied to exposure of sensitive customer data, is too high.

ReadyWorks, a digital platform conductor, integrates location service solutions with the broader capabilities of automated asset lifecycle management. These capabilities include integrating different sensor technologies and systems, tracking assets from shipping to deployment, updating inventory to reflect asset availability, recording information about users and associated applications, updating device maintenance records, and orchestrating decommissioning and disposal. ReadyWorks also orchestrates workflows to respond to security and compliance violations, notify managers of lost devices, order replacement parts, open service tickets, and configure devices.
