MicroMain Asset Tracking Expands Mobile Capability with Tablet PC or Ultra Mobile PC
(November 19, 2008) AUSTIN, TX - MicroMain Corporation, a leading provider of asset and facility management software and services, today announced the release of MicroMain(TM) Asset Tracking, new asset tracking software used with MicroMain's computerized maintenance management system (CMMS).
With this new software, maintenance organizations are able to track assets from purchase through changes and moves. MicroMain Asset Tracking also makes it easy for companies to take inventory of existing assets in multiple locations, noting current condition as well as nameplate data, specifications, and additional asset details such as meter readings.
Many customers use the software to count and identify new assets in new buildings. Others update information for existing assets, such as location or current condition. All data entered with MicroMain Asset Tracking is uploaded to the MicroMain database for ongoing maintenance management-including work orders, inspections, preventive maintenance scheduling, and other activities related to maintaining those assets.
Because the software is run detached from the MicroMain database, it can be used with a Tablet PC or Ultra Mobile PC. Maintenance technicians can then download current asset data from the database to their mobile PC before taking the device on-site to asset locations, such as office buildings, campuses, sports arenas, hospitals, retirement communities, parks, or manufacturing plants. Using the simple interface, the technicians enter data for new assets and update existing asset records. After completing the inventory or update, they then upload the data to the MicroMain database. All uploads and downloads can be accomplished wirelessly.
Maintenance technicians have the option of scanning barcodes to select assets with MicroMain Asset Tracking. Using the software, maintenance staff also can assign barcodes or control numbers to assets. Using barcodes saves time with data entry and increases accuracy.
"At MicroMain, we pride ourselves on listening to our customers and developing new products that meet their needs," said David Tarver, Vice President of Development at MicroMain. "Asset tracking has always been an integral part of our CMMS, but several of our larger customers wanted a way to dispatch technicians to take asset inventories at multiple new sites. MicroMain Asset Tracking, using mobile PCs, is the answer.
"We're sure many of our customers will take advantage of the new mobile asset tracking software," he added. "MicroMain Asset Tracking exemplifies the distinguishing characteristics of all MicroMain software: it's easy to use, it's cost-effective, and it makes sense."
