Asset Tracking System – Web Asset Cycle Count
“Hello and Thank you for your interest in our industry-leading Asset Tracking System. In this video, we will discuss our latest addition, the Web Asset Cycle Count Feature.
In addition to performing a Cycle Count of assets from the Mobile App, users now have the added flexibility to conduct an Asset Cycle Count from the Web application.
Amongst many configuration options, system administrators can enable an option to Auto Move assets identified in the system to be located somewhere else to the current location where the cycle count is performed.
Additionally, Administrators can choose how users perform the Cycle count using one of two methods to add a new Asset item. Users can either add by the Asset ID/Location, or with more details in the asset file form.
When performing a Cycle Count of Assets, Administrators can choose either a Blind or Dynamic Cycle Counts. Both options offer a different user experience (UX) when performing the Asset Cycle Count.
Let’s take a closer look at each of these options and the different user experience they provide.
1- The Dynamic Asset Cycle Count
Using this option, users will follow a simple 3 steps process. Step one is to choose a location, In Step 2, after clicking the “ Start Cycle Count” a grid will display all assets that should exist in that location under a “To be Found” tab. Once the user physically walks to each asset, he can either scan the barcode, manually type the sku number, choose it from a dropdown menu, or simply select it from the grid. In turn, when the barcode is scanned the User Interface will automatically display the result of the count in one of the two remaining tabs, “Found” and “Unidentified”
-“Found Items” are assets that are exactly where they are supposed to be.
– “Unidentified items” inform users that asset items are in the wrong location. Here, the auto move feature can be applied if enabled.
All assets left in the “To be Found” tab are an indication that those asset items are missing.
Also in Step 2 users can choose to hit Reset to restart the process all over again, export the results of the cycle count report as a PDF file, print it or send it by email to any designated user.
2- Blind Asset Physical Count:
Here the user will undergo a different user experience, Step 1, will be to choose the location of the desired count. Step 2 is to start the cycle count of all the Asset Items found in that location. One by one, each asset item is shown in a grid and will display the Asset ID and the location. Once all the Asset items are scanned/added, step 3, the user will press the process button. Unlike the Dynamic option, in this option users are not afforded the opportunity of a sneak peek.
Finally, designated users can generate 3 system reports related to the Asset Cycle Count. The “Asset Cycle Count Report”, which will include the status of all Assets, the “Asset Cycle Count Missing Report” , and the “Asset Moved Report” which will show the asset items moved, utilizing the Auto move option.
