Here’s a closer look at the benefits of Nlyte Asset Audit and how it can help you manage your data center more effectively.
Barcode-Enabled Quick Audit
Nlyte Asset Audit's barcode-enabled quick audit feature eliminates the need for manual data entry, reducing the risk of human error and saving time. The software allows users to scan barcodes using a tablet device, automatically capturing asset data in real-time. This feature simplifies the audit process and reduces the time needed to update asset data, allowing IT teams to focus on other critical tasks.
Streamlined Modern UI Purpose-Built for Tablets
Nlyte Asset Audit also features a streamlined, modern user interface that is purpose-built for tablet devices. This makes it easy to navigate and use, even if you’re not a technical expert. With a user-friendly interface, you can quickly get up to speed with the tool and start using it to manage your IT assets more effectively.
Fast and easy to navigate
In addition to its user-friendly interface, Nlyte Asset Audit is also designed to be fast and easy to navigate. This means that you can complete your audits quickly and efficiently, without wasting time on complicated or cumbersome processes. With a tool that is designed for speed and ease of use, you can improve your overall efficiency and reduce the time and resources required to manage your IT assets.
Security and Logging
Nlyte Asset Audit also provides robust security and logging features, so you can keep track of who has done what within the tool. This can help you maintain accountability and ensure that your audits are conducted according to your company’s policies and procedures. With built-in security and logging features, you can have confidence that your data is protected and your IT assets are being managed effectively.
Validate Audit Data Real Time
Nlyte Asset Audit also allows you to validate audit data in real-time for assets, cabinets, and chassis. This means that you can be confident that the data you’re collecting is accurate and up-to-date, improving the overall reliability of your asset management system.
With reporting built-in, Nlyte Asset Audit provides valuable insights into your data center assets. You can generate reports on a variety of metrics, including asset location, age, and condition, as well as asset utilization and overall asset value. With built-in reporting, you can get a better understanding of your IT assets and how they are being used, allowing you to make more informed decisions about how to manage them.
Extending the Nlyte Functionality
Nlyte Asset Audit also allows you to extend the functionality of the Nlyte platform into your data center using inventory tools. This means that you can use Nlyte Asset Audit to manage your entire IT asset inventory, from acquisition to retirement. With a comprehensive inventory management system in place, you can improve your overall visibility into your IT assets and reduce the risk of overspending or underutilization.
Regain Lost Productivity
By streamlining your asset management processes with Nlyte Asset Audit, you can regain lost productivity previously spent looking for assets. With a more efficient and accurate system in place, you can reduce the amount of time and resources required to manage your IT assets, allowing your staff to focus on other critical tasks.
Avoid Data Issues
One of the major benefits of Nlyte Asset Audit is that it helps avoid data issues that can arise with other auditing systems. With manual data entry, there is a high likelihood of human error, which can result in incorrect data. Nlyte Asset Audit eliminates this issue by using barcode-enabled quick audit to scan-in data, which avoids manual entry and reduces human error.
Greatly Reduce the Time to Install Equipment
Another benefit of Nlyte Asset Audit is that it greatly reduces the time to install equipment. With the help of a streamlined modern UI that is purpose-built for tablet devices, the software is fast and easy to navigate. This means that installation time is greatly reduced, which ultimately leads to increased productivity.
Capture Changes in a User-Friendly Manner
Nlyte Asset Audit captures changes to the data center in a user-friendly manner that improves data accuracy and reliability. A vast amount of change occurs in any common data center due to the various types of required remediation, refresh, and reconfiguration tasks. Extreme discipline surrounding workflows and change orders can keep your Nlyte Content Database (CDB) up to date, so it accurately reflects your data center at every point in time.
Update Asset Information in Real-Time
Nlyte Asset Audit updates the Nlyte Content Database asset information in real-time as changes occur. This means that your asset inventory is always up-to-date, which is critical for financial management of IT assets. By getting an accurate reflection of your asset inventory, you can make better decisions regarding procurement, deployment, and maintenance of IT assets.
Discover Lost Assets
Nlyte Asset Audit finds, on average, 21% more assets in their clients’ data centers than they had on record pre-audit. This is because due to change activity outside the defined best practices which results in untracked and therefore unmanaged changes, it is critically important to regularly audit the accuracy of the DCIM managed environment, much like any inventory management system that relies upon checks and balances. It is not uncommon to find 20% or more new assets in a data center than what is on record during a proper audit.
In conclusion, Nlyte Asset Audit is a must-have for organizations that want to maintain an accurate record of their IT assets. It helps avoid data issues that can arise with other auditing systems, greatly reduces the time to install equipment, captures changes to the data center in a user-friendly manner that improves data accuracy and reliability, updates the Nlyte Content Database asset information in real-time as changes occur, and helps improve the financial management of IT assets by getting an accurate reflection of the asset inventory. With Nlyte Asset Audit, you can stay on top of your IT infrastructure and make informed decisions regarding procurement, deployment, and maintenance of IT assets.
