How are you keeping track of assets within your organization? Are you losing time and money each year due to lost or missing equipment?
ZulaFly, a software company based out of Fargo, ND, is changing the way you track assets within and outside your facility.
Asset tracking allows you to locate tools and equipment that are easily lost, misplaced, or have a history of leaving the building. By combining the strength of RTLS (Real Time Locating System), RFID, and GPS, ZulaFly’s info-packed tracking tool lets you see what’s happening inside and outside of the facility.
Missing equipment can be especially troublesome in industries where rentals are frequently utilized. Losing an expensive item that needs to be returned creates added stress and expends valuable time. The healthcare industry is a perfect example.
“Rental equipment is used for a single patient, that patient gets discharged, and the piece of equipment sits on a shelf or gets put in a corner,” says Stephanie Andersen, Managing Partner at ZulaFly. “Now you can put a tag on rental equipment to track where it is, and if it’s still being used. This can save months in rental fees.”
Additionally, the GPS feature provides significant value in seeing where expensive capital assets are located throughout multiple work sites. No longer will these critical items be misplaced or lost.
“There is huge ROI in knowing where job site equipment is, having the ability to locate it if stolen, and not needing to replace something that’s missing because you can’t find it,” notes Andersen.
One of the advantages ZulaFly offers is flexibility. The company’s Fuzion software platform makes asset tracking easy to use, regardless of industry.
“Not only can a hospital show ROI with an asset management system, but so can a manufacturing facility, school or casino,” says Andersen. “Everyone has a list of inventory that has been purchased with items on that list they cannot find. By creating a benchmark when tagging equipment, you’ll easily be able to know what has been saved in replacement costs.”
“The power of how Fuzion was designed is that we don’t force everyone to fit into a box and require them to track the same information for assets,” says Lori Watson, ZulaFly Managing Partner. “Within the same industries, Company A may want to track very different information for their assets than Company B. Fuzion allows each customer to specify the data they care about with on-the-fly creation of fields along with the ability to utilize the facility verbiage.”
Confucius once said, “Life is really simple, but we insist on making it complicated.”
ZulaFly believes software implementation does not have to be the headache many organizations experience. The team has worked hard to have a sophisticated product that has a seamless transition out of the box.
Watson says, “ZulaFly has taken the definition of ease of implementation to heart. We do not believe someone should spend weeks getting a new system up and running. ZulaFly provides a spreadsheet to customers with the fields they have predefined. Once that spreadsheet is completed the data imports in seconds.”
Ultimately, simply being able to find what you need is an underestimated aspect of workplace efficiency.
“We hear the same thing from Healthcare workers to Manufacturing to GPS customers; it is frustrating to not be able to find the things you need when you need them,” says Watson.
