Suited particularly to the tracking of high value assets, RAM’s mobile app provides real time visibility for assets on the move. Having access to vital information such as the exact location and status of your assets when you need it, is crucial for minimising loss, improving customer service and better managing your business operations.

- Reduce operational costs by increasing asset visibility
- Input events throughout an asset’s lifecycle, detailing acquisitions, disposals, transfers and issues/returns
- Store files and documents such as letters, emails, purchase orders, invoices, photographs, etc that are linked to asset records and location
- Access frequent, configurable updates on asset location and status at the click of a button
- Utilise geo-fence functionality to compare location, travel and route to actual targets

Designed for use in any commercial or public sector business, RAM’s mobile app enables the comprehensive tracking of all assets across the business on a daily basis. Manage the assignment of assets to employees, vendors or customers to ensure no assets get misplaced.
The issue function allows the assignment of an asset and complete management of its timely return. Each time an issue transaction is processed, an audit record is created in the system providing full visibility and accountability of the asset’s use. Assets can even be reserved prior to use to ensure speedy collection.
Whether an educational establishment loaning equipment to students, a hospital booking out care equipment to patients or a commercial business tracking the reservation and temporary issue of a central repository of assets to employees, RAM’s app will allow you to:
- Reduce the loss or theft of portable assets
- Improve the utilisation of assets by enabling colleagues to click and reserve the assets that they need
- Monitor changes in asset condition, which can be updated each time the asset is loaned or returned
- Identify unused equipment, or equipment in short supply through the software’s utilisation reports
- Automatically chase overdue/not-returned equipment through active email workflows, reducing the time spent waiting for assets to be returned
- Record a signature on issue and return of the item to improve accountability. Reports showing asset wastage can include ‘last loan signatures’
- Attach and associate electronic documents to assets; document the current loan, photograph the condition or attach instructions for use
Real Asset Management’s mobile app enables the accurate tracking of your delivery and collection processes, putting an end to missing assets. Designed with any re-usable asset in mind, such as a container, cylinder, pallet or plastic crate, RAM’s mobile app provides the facility to scan and record the delivery and collection location of assets as well as the condition/status of the item without the need to purchase expensive scanning equipment.
Supported on iOS, Android and Windows Mobile devices, RAM’s intuitive and easy to use app will enable your business to:
- Improve asset rotation rate and tracking
- Increase efficiency by reducing the time spent searching for assets
- Set locations for collection/delivery and manage the whole process
