Collective Data Inc., a provider of fleet management software systems, recently released the Extended Asset Module, a product designed to help fleets manage assets beyond the fleet. “Organizations are following a growing trend to do more with less and consolidate software systems to manage all assets,” says Jason Wonase, president of Collective Data. “Our software has been used in very creative ways over the years to track different assets ranging from facilities, to generators to notebook computers. We wanted to offer a product that would make this type of tracking more intuitive and effective.”
The new module is designed to allow a fleet to track any physical asset that requires the need to track its location, lifecycle costs, maintenance schedule and more. “There are no limits to what the Extended Asset Module can track for you,” says Andrew Lewellyn, senior sales executive. “The design of the module is to allow the user to define exactly what they need to track, as well as what data they need to track on those assets. Clients can use this module to track everything from power lines, to air compressors, to HVAC units, and even building and rooms.”
The Extended Asset Module is designed to be deployed in two ways: The first option is for the organization to work directly with Collective Data to configure the software to accommodate the exact asset tracking required; if the organization has an IT department or tech-savvy user, an alternate option gives them the ability to define any number of unique asset types with each collecting and managing different elements of data.
“Introducing this product is a milestone for Collective Data,” Wonase says. “It is just one more step in our long-term efforts of providing the most flexible and scalable fleet and equipment management software available to our clients.”
