Posted By : Anirudh Bhardwaj | April 8, 2022

In today’s hard-pressed business environment, enterprises face several challenges in the form of dynamic consumer demand patterns, changing trends, market competition, and the likes. At the same time, they need to comply with stringent government regulations and complex legislation procedures. It is, therefore, critical for businesses to embrace next-generation software technologies to streamline their processes and sail through operational complexities. Furthermore, it is a crucial step to drive digital transformation, enabling enterprises to gain a competitive edge in the market.

Asset management is of paramount importance to enterprises, regardless of their respective industries. It is, by far, the most crucial enterprise component that forms the backbone of warehouse operations. Effective asset management for any enterprise paves the way for more efficient and streamlined workflows and directly impacts customer experiences. In this blog post, we shall explore three transformative techniques that enterprises can use to improve asset management and inventory management processes.

Ways To Improve Asset Management

In the following section, we shall delve into the top three methods that enterprises can use to significantly improve asset management processes.  


1.) Robotic Process Automation (RPA)

Many businesses belonging to industries like retail, eCommerce, and manufacturing require their workers to manually scan inventory items. Considering the sheer volume of stock, manually tracking inventory items could be a back-breaking task. It is not only a time-consuming process but is also prone to errors. That said, robotic process automation (RPA) could be an effective way to sail through routine operational complexities associated with asset management and build resilience for the future. Robotic Process Automation (RPA) techniques use specialized computer programs to standardize and automate repeatable mundane tasks and business processes with rule-based software.

When it comes to asset management, RPA algorithms help keep close tabs on a company’s resources and aid in handling various assets in the best possible way. Besides, an RPA system enables stakeholders to predict optimal inventory levels by taking historical data into account. It can make the inventory management process more efficient and up-to-date to accommodate spikes in demand.


2.) Cloud Computing

Cloud computing is a transformative technology that has become a requisite need for all businesses. With cloud-based applications quickly replacing traditional on-premise systems, the technology is here to stay for the foreseeable future. Cloud technology is powerful and cost-effective that helps you face distribution challenges. Using cloud-based enterprise systems for asset management could be an effective way to improve the quality of operations associated with the process. The cloud-based approach ensures minimal disruption to routine operations and offers the following benefits to enterprises: 


  • Cutting down on labor, infrastructure and maintenance costs
  • Upgrades warehouse management systems
  • Cloud storage systems are self-updating and easy to use

3.) Radio Frequency Identification (RFID)

Radio Frequency Identification (RFID)  is a technology that uses radio waves to feed information between tags that are attached to various assets and are readable through special devices. RFIDs have already become an integral part of warehouse operations due to their significance and ease of use.


Some crucial benefits of using RFIDs in asset management include:

  • Greater transparency
  • Stock visibility
  • Reduction in theft instances
  • Ease of inventory management


Some enterprises are even considering the possibility of combining the drone technology with RFID to further improve asset management processes. For instance, warehouse managers may attach RFID readers to drones or robots to accelerate the process and gain better control over stock and inventory.

Closing Thoughts

Here we have shed light on the three most transformative technologies that are likely to disrupt the manufacturing, retail, and supply chain industries in 2022 and beyond. Using these technologies to improve asset management would help enterprises achieve higher levels of productivity at reduced operational costs. Besides, technologies like AI, machine learning, RPA, and IoT will continue to replace humans to automate complex, labor-intensive tasks. Besides, the warehouse staff will also get more time to focus on value-adding roles without getting bogged down with less significant repetitive tasks.
