What does the market say about fixed asset management?
An effective fixed asset management solution reduces the immense job of inventory accounting and tracking to a manageable process; it overcomes the pitfalls of spreadsheets and provides a number of benefits. A fixed asset management solution:

- Prevents over-payment of property taxes and insurance through accurate physical inventories.
- Maximizes available tax write-offs via accurate and appropriate asset depreciation calculations.
