Greg Manthei

Very Easy to use; good service, expensive pricing model; weak reporting

2016-10-15

All we had to do was export our old database into CSV or excel and give it to them.

Pros

The asset type method makes training users very easy

Cons

The price model is unfair to companies with a large number of assets but few transactions. The reporting is basic and prone to error.

The transfer from the desktop version to the web is not a pretty conversion. Once on the new system a lot of time as spent to recreate several reports. We have learned a lot about the system and have adjusted to the differences. I look forward to learning more about the system and the available features and reporting capabilities.

Accounting for Fixed Assets

2018-12-15

The ability to report fixed assets in multiple currencies is the best thing with this software, its so useful for a company that has branches in different countries as it automatically calculates exchange rates .

Pros

One is able to record, calculate depreciation, calculate gain or loss on disposal and asset and track all fixed assets owned by a company.

Cons

It is complicated and it is difficult for users to adjust the depreciation rates or add anything to it.

Ease of Use

2017-03-30

I have been using Bloomberg BNA Fixed Assets for four years. It has helped to streamline our fixed assets accounting process and has also helped tremendously with tax preparation. We recently switched to the BNA Fixed Assets Web version and this has continued to help streamline our operations.

Pros

Reporting functionality, versatility.

Cons

Would like to see better ad-hoc reporting capabilities.

Great for managing fixed assets

2018-03-11

Pros

Utilizes workflow technology and automation reducing indexing and entry throughout the life cycle of a single location.

Scanning software for invoices could be better utilized for maximum indexing and automation of incoming invoices.

BNA Fixed Asset tracker simplifies and cuts down on time

2018-02-06

Pros

I like that it is able to track the fixed assets over time and depreciate them accordingly based on the type of asset class it belonged to and if bonus depreciation is used.

Cons

If you transfer over fixed assets on to the software, it can be a little bit of work in the front end.

Fixed Asset Software

2018-12-04

Overall it was a very difficult software to use, and we switched once our accounting software released their solution .

Pros

It kept track of all of our fixed assets in one place.

Cons

It was a very difficult staff to use. In the year I had the software I never fully understood how to use it. I wasn't ever sure on how to add things in there or adjust depreciation schedules.

The cost and capability of Factset is better.

2018-05-07

Our Bloomberg terminals were easily linked to this tool.

Pros

The keystrokes are all familiar and the user interface is as well.

Cons

Factset analytics is known to be a superior product and when testing the trials on BNA we realized our fixed income business would benefit greater from Factset.
