Why every business needs Inventory as-a-Service (INVaaS)
A full service INVaaS (Inventory as-a-Service) program captures all pertinent asset information right from the beginning. Of course, most companies start out that way! However, inventory data becomes distorted over time by non-reported losses, theft, malfunctioning assets, or IT staff changes. In addition, as businesses thrive and grow, more devices are acquired – meaning that IT support may not have the resources to keep up with demands, even worse, inventory audits and other best practices simply don’t happen.
This inventory scenario leaves growing discrepancies that will eventually turn into unsurmountable risks to your company’s data security, brand, and reputation.
