Fantastic Fixed Asset Software

2019-10-03

It also allows me to generate rollforward style reports automatically, which will make audits very simple.

Pros

A lot of customizable reports, and the canned reports are very well designed.

Cons

They have not done much work to make the interface very user friendly for today's "standard" users, but if you are used to the older Windows style of program layouts, this will feels like home.

RAM is easy to use and does everything that you want it to do.

2017-05-19

Makes keeping asset registers easier

Pros

RAM keeps all your asset data in easy to access component groups which enables you to run accurate reports for audit and day to day use.

Cons

The only downside to the software is how long it can take to run depreciation for lots of components but this is not a big problem.

Easy navigation and user friendly.

2018-06-26

Pros

Ease of navigation, well organized tab layout, warning pop ups before completing any step which gives the room to ensure whether all steps have been completed properly.

Cons

Customization of a new report does takes time, as relevant columns required for a report are recorded under different grouped headers rather than a simple drop down to pick the needed fields.

Response from Real Asset Management


Hello Anoop, thanks for your comments. The system does already include a wide range of standard reports, however, if there are some obvious reports missing we would be very happy to receive feedback on the type of reports required. Your account manager will be in touch with you shortly to discuss further. Kind regards, Karen.

RAM have met our needs of our company.

2017-05-23

Pros

It is great that you can import data from spread sheets, cutting out a lot of manual inputs.

Cons

It can be slow when running the depreciation but I think that is due to the size of our database.

Asset4000 Experiences

2018-10-17

Pros

The software is easy to use & I've always found the user guide offers straightforward explanations of the processes involved in maintaining an accurate asset register.It is possible to run audit trails which show all entries made relating to the asset register.If I have needed any advice to overcome a problem(which has happened on very few occasions) the Asset 4000 helpdesk have always responded very promptly in resolving the issues.

Cons

I've never encountered anything that I've actually disliked about Asset4000.The Standard Reports cover the majority of my requirements although Defining New User Reports has caused myself a few problems.I've also encountered a few Configuration & Security problems but originally I was not set up at super user level on Asset4000 but these problems were resolved with help from the Asset4000 helpdesk.

Customer Service 5*

2018-10-30

We have a fixed asset register that is easy to understand and to report on, job done.

Pros

Asset4000 is a useful Fixed Asset software system, the differentiator I believe is their fantastic customer support, any issues are dealt with in a very timely manner which is great when most issues need to be overcome in a speedy manner. Importing of assets via excel is also a plus.

Cons

The general look and layout of the software is somewhat basic, but still functional and generally easy to use.

Asset 4000

2014-06-06

The downsides to the asset 4000 programme would be the length of time it takes to extract and import reports to Excel as well as while a report is being run to Excel spreadsheet, the user is unable to carry on using excel for any other work without the system crashing.

Hello Surinder, this was the case in older versions but in newer versions users are now able to use Excel whilst reports are being run. Asset4000 allows for the running of Excel reports regardless if Excel is being used elsewhere. I will arrange for our helpdesk to contact you to resolve this for you.

We've been using Real Asset Management's fixed asset software for around 10 years.

Pros

It's easy to use and very logical.

Cons

It has a graphical interface, yet you're still unable to drag and drop things to save you from having to type the same things again and again.

Recommendations to others considering RAM Fixed Asset Management

The version that we're using now requires you to log out twice, once from the actual program that deals with fixed assets, then out of a "master" application. A bit annoying but if you don't completely log out, you'll be classed as still logged in next time (there's no session time out)

Source: Capterra
Helpful?   Yes   No

Response from Real Asset Management


Hello Fu, an advisor will contact you shortly as there is a session time out and we can set this up for you in a second. We can also find out your queries on drag and drop as it may already be available. If not, RAM always acts on customer feedback. The new version in Autumn 16 will bring a new look and feel so we'll make sure we get you updated asap.
