"IT Asset Management = A Better Return On Your IT Investment"
IT asset management is an important part of an organisation's strategy. It usually involves gathering detailed hardware and software inventory information which is then used to make decisions about hardware and software purchases and redistribution. IT inventory management helps organisations manage their systems more effectively and saves time and money by avoiding unnecessary asset purchases and promoting the harvesting of existing resources. Organisations that develop and maintain an effective IT asset management program further minimise the incremental risks and related costs of advancing IT portfolio infrastructure projects based on old, incomplete and/or less accurate information.
IT Asset Management uses integrated software solutions that work with all departments that are involved in the procurement, deployment, management and expense reporting of IT assets.

MultiManager is a unique asset management system that lies at the heart of Multi R IT's ability to provide such high levels of logistics and project management, as well as accurate reporting for its clients. The system track, measure and control the entire lifecycle of an IT asset.
MultiManager has a robust SQL/.Net database that provides for the electronic scanning of asset data to reduce errors, automate certain functions and connect electronically to suppliers and customers.
It has built in audit security such that receipt of each scanned asset is time-stamped, signed and reportable on through each subsequent step. Changes to any record are logged down to the user who made the change and the time it was changed, providing a complete audit history and minimising opportunities for fraud or inaccurate reporting.
A key feature of MultiManageris the extremely flexible report builder allowing it to produce and distribute electronically almost any report that might be required by a customer. Essentially, any field within the system can be included in a report, in any order, and reports can be produced ad-hoc or according to specified times/schedules.
