Sipi Inventory-as-a-Service (INVaaS)

Why every business needs Inventory as-a-Service (INVaaS)Infographic 4 reasons why your company may need inventory as a service.

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. 

With Sipi Asset Recovery’s INVaaS program we will ensure that doesn’t happen by providing inventory audit services, reporting and consulting to provide solutions for your inventory challenges such as:

  • Where exactly are our assets?
  • Do we have assets we didn’t even know about?
  • How do I determine what to do with my assets during our next refresh cycle?
  • Is there a way to know before my assets start to lose their value?
  • How can I keep up on my inventory cycle after cycle?
