The TESMA® App from CHG-MERIDIAN brings asset tracking to smartphones. The App makes it easy to record the serial numbers, statuses, and specific information of assets automatically and cost-efficiently. This helps to reduce the time and money spent on administration – from receiving the goods to the end of the lifecycle. The App is available for Android and iOS operating systems.
CHG-MERIDIAN’s TESMA® App is driving forward the digitalization of asset management along the entire lifecycle. The App makes it easy to record the serial numbers of IT assets such as printers, smartphones, laptops, and equipment used in healthcare and industrial engineering. Data is captured quickly and easily using the smartphone camera or a hand-held scanner.
When the assets are received, the scanned serial numbers can be immediately allocated to existing orders in TESMA® (technology and service management system). Other asset-specific data such as cost centers and locations can be recorded at the same time. It is also possible to change the asset status throughout an asset’s lifecycle and to update any related information. The automated process makes manual entry of serial numbers and the checking off of Excel lists redundant. This eliminates sources of error and saves time.
TESMA® brings technical information – such as asset type, specification, location, and consumption data – and financial information – including leasing prices, cost centers, funding periods, and consumption costs – together in real time. This creates a maximum of technical and financial transparency and makes it easier to organize assets.
Vicky Blocksidge, TESMA® product manager at CHG-MERIDIAN, says: “The TESMA® App is a logical addition to TESMA®. It makes organizing assets easier for our customers and allows us to leverage the power of digitalization to increase asset management efficiency over the entire lifecycle.”
CHG-MERIDIAN will continue to focus on digitalization in the future and drive forward the development of other functions that simplify customer processes.
