The Corporate Interiors Asset Management Services are designed to provide vital, detailed office asset information required by today’s cost-conscious facility managers. This information helps you make better, more proactive decisions regarding the status and usage of office furniture and office equipment assets. Corporate Interiors employs a multi-functional computer database system which utilizes state-of-the-art bar code technology to collect, maintain and report current, accurate asset data. This enables your organization to gain better yield out of its current assets.

Our bar-coded asset management system completely replaces cumbersome manual property inventory practices, and their propensity for error, lack of detail and difficult, time-consuming maintenance. It automates the collection and maintenance of asset data and ensures that this information is always current. The use of bar-code technology also greatly increases the speed and accuracy of inventory data collection and provides on-demand asset reporting to answer specific asset-related questions. This is not only more cost-effective for you; it also produces real savings by providing asset information which allows your organization to reduce unnecessary purchases of office furniture and equipment.

Ensync Client eBusiness Platform

Corporate Interiors provides our clients with Ensync. A secure web based application which is SQL database driven and provides real-time reporting on our client’s owned assets. The web based site application draws from data entered into Snaptracker software (bar-code asset tracking).

The web based site accommodates multiple users with varying access levels. A user can inquire availability or status of customer owned assets or new asset receiving. The software can track assets in one building or multiple buildings. Assets are tracked through cycle counting using the hand held scanner and updating the assets current location.

The asset software application (Snaptracker) features bar-code technology.

Asset Inventory items are bar-coded and documented using multiple pieces of information including but not limited to the following:

  • Manufacturer
  • Catalog number
  • Asset description

  • Asset delivery date
  • Delivery workorder instructions. (assembly codes)
  • Delivery workorder location, room number
  • Project number

The inventory is accessible via an online catalog which allows each user to view, reserve and request inventory items (with appropriate access rights). Standard items are optionally photographed allowing user to view images of commonly reserved product. Real-time reporting on the inventory includes a built in report viewer that allows the user to export any of the reports in various commonly used formats including Microsoft Excel, Adobe PDF, and others.
