The Importance of a Digital Asset Register

Mobiess, a leading independent supplier of Asset Management and Health & Safety Solutions has introduced an update to its award-winning Asset Inspector product.

Asset Register

Asset Inspector supports organisations in their accurate collection and management of assets over their entire life from installation to decommissioning. The latest version on Asset Inspector now offers a formal change management process to lock down change and asset assign ownership alongside service levels to the change activities. Over recent years the importance of accurate asset registers has increased with the drive for energy efficiency, health and safety and most recently sustainability.  The Mobiess Platform provides a full independent view of your assets that drive all of your other IWMS/CAFM and maintenance systems as we focus full asset lifecycle and not just the maintenance.

How Mobiess Helps

Asset Inspector provides a structured approach to tagging and coding assets using configurable multi-level hierarchies and database driven pick lists, allowing use of different hierarchies for different projects and customers.

This flexible and best practise-based approach to asset coding / collection supports Strategic Maintenance Planning as well as the production of accurate Fixed Asset Registers.

Collect, validate and audit your assets from mobile phones, tablets or the web.

The key benefits of implementing a Mobile Asset Management Platform are improved asset collection rates, improvements in data quality, consistency and coding, reduction in asset project delivery times and support for Barcodes, QR Codes and NFC Tags.

The Significance of Data Standards

Many asset registers are affected by poor data standards due to not considering the importance of their master Asset Hierarchy and coding standards. Although most industries don’t have a default data standard that everyone operates to, we are starting to see a unification, so ensure you use the most relevant standard in your coding systems. ISO 55000 – PAS55, CIBSE, BSRIA, RICS, BESA-SFG20 and Uniclass are all supported in the Asset Hierarchy to help you maximise alignment to your corporate standards.

  • Give your asset hierarchy an instinctive and logical structure.
  • Follow uniformed approach to asset coding and naming.
  • Only include what you need to.
  • Define asset-specific attributes to ensure consistent data capture.
  • Audit and update the information included regularly.
  • Assign Repair and Replacement costs to Asset Types for lifecycle planning.
  • Asset Life expectancies to Asset Types.
