MattyMat is absolutely wrong. Hiring a QA person to handle it “on the side” probably, when they have time is a huge mistake. That’s fine if you have a mom & pop shop but if you have a corporation, medium sized business or a college campus you’d better have a strong IT Asset Management person if not a group. PCs coming in daily, being disposed of daily, PC refresh constantly, licensing of all of your software, sometimes thousands of applications, not to mention the hundreds of other items that are involved in asset management.

If you asset management is poor you’re behind your competition. You’re most likely using older technology, having equipment walk out the door, etc, etc. That costs you money & customers.

There’s an old saying that goes something to the effect, “If you Fail to Plan, you Plan to Fail.” I’ve worked in Field Service organizations for over 20 years and have found that organizations that fail to establish and maintain adequate asset management policy (including a person or persons with specific responsibility for this area) seldom know or understand the asset base they have. Asset management is more than simply keeping track of models and serial numbers; it involves knowing where the equipment is, value, establishing a change control process and many other things. The primary focus is always “attention to detail.” As they say, “the Devil is in the details!” A good Asset Manager and/or staff more than pay for themselves over time.

If there’s any position in IT that can be eliminated, it’s asset management. Give the responsibility to a good QA analyst and pay them a little bit more— they’ll thank you for it.
