As part of a complete asset management solution, Altiris® Barcode Solution™ integrates with Altiris Asset Management Suite™ to help you eliminate data input errors, accounting irregularities, and redundancies. By leveraging bar code technology, Barcode Solution provides a simpler, more accurate way of gathering and verifying information in the field.
SPEED UP THE PROCESS AND REDUCE ERRORS Manual data collection is slow and error prone. For example, a well-trained data entry operator makes a data entry error once every 300 keystrokes. The results are wasted time and lost revenues. Barcode Solution is designed to save your organization time and money by increasing input speed and accuracy. A bar code system is significantly faster (about 15 times faster) and more accurate (about 10,000 times more accurate) than manual data entry systems. TRACK AND AUDIT ASSETS Assets that cannot be automatically discovered via network connections can be easily tracked within the enterprise application with Barcode Solution. Your organization's asset data can be downloaded to a handheld device, taken to the asset location, and then verified. New asset data can also be collected while in the field. Barcode Solution’s features make it easy to synchronize data with the enterprise application. MANAGE YOUR INVENTORY Regardless of where inventory is located—even your organization's most remote locations halfway across the world—a bar code system makes inventory in the field visible to the warehouse, which in turn can prepare replacements or place orders.This provides an up-to-the-minute inventory of stock availability, saving hours in time. FROM RECEIVING TO ACTUAL USE With Barcode Solution personnel receiving stock can enter incoming materials as quickly as they are received.The result is a quick move of the newly purchased resources to a timely use of the assets. HELP THE HELP DESK Barcode Solution streamlines the process of addressing help desk work items. For example, it's a quick on-location task of verifying that a computer is the correct one that is associated with the work item. Asset details such as hardware, software, location, and ownership are readily available from the bar code scan.
