Solution Spotlight: Google’s Search Results for Asset Tracking Software

In GetApp's Solution Spotlight series, we explain which software is at the top of Google's search engine results and how each can meet your specific needs. To identify the systems featured here, we entered the term "asset tracking software" in a Google search the week of September 24, 2020, in an incognito window with the location set to the U.S. The first five solutions, excluding comparison blogs, are described here in alphabetical order.

Implementing asset tracking software is a logical step forward from using a manual system, such as spreadsheets, to track your business' assets.

Whether it's your IT hardware or another type of essential equipment, inefficient tracking methods lead to lost items and confusion, and ultimately cost your small business both wasted time and money.

Dedicated software helps you avoid these issues, and can also extend the life of your assets with features such as predictive and preventive maintenance.

What is asset tracking software?

Asset tracking solutions are made up of a combination of software, barcode scanners, radio-frequency identification (RFID) tags, and GPS asset tracking and barcode scanning via an asset tracking app. 

They streamline four main functions of asset tracking:

  • Documenting asset features and maintenance schedules

  • Calculating fixed asset depreciation

  • Identifying asset locations

  • Tracking physical assets via asset tag, barcode scanner, and/or RFID reader

Choosing the asset tracking tool that offers the right combination of features and capabilities for your small business isn't always easy; you need a way to compare the options side-by-side.

Don't worry; we've got you covered. The five asset tracking solutions in this piece rank highest in a Google search for "asset tracking software." Higher placement on Google's search engine results pages (SERPs) indicates that these products are searched for frequently, and that other potential buyers are researching these specific tools.

We'll discuss the key features of these tools and look at their pricing, as well as provide additional resources where you can learn more about the benefits of an asset tracking solution and make the best choice for your business. Let's dive in.
