Cisco automates fixed asset lifecycle management, improves cycle counts and audit accuracy
Cisco Systems, the worldwide leader in networking hardware, telecommunications equipment and collaboration technologies, makes the equipment that powers the Internet. It also uses this equipment, such as routers, switches and blade servers, throughout its data centers and wireless test labs. Every day thousands of IT assets are procured, deployed and moved between locations.
Cisco recognized an opportunity to optimize and safeguard the company’s investment in fixed IT assets by automating equipment receiving, inventory management and audits, and asset sharing between departments. RFID Global designed and deployed a nationwide infrastructure of RFID software, portals and mobile devices, integrating Visi-Trac with Cisco’s asset management and accounting systems. The project has resulted in improved cycle counts, more accurate audits, and significant cost savings.
