In companies, asset management refers to the maintenance and value preservation of assets (e.g. machines, buildings, industrial plants, etc.). Asset management includes planning, new construction and management of the asset portfolio, maintenance, conversion, expansion and modification as well as decommissioning. Asset management includes both investment and cost planning of a company's fixed assets.
In this SoftGuide section you will find an overview of asset management software. The asset management software listed in this section is used by companies to manage fixed assets. As a rule, it supports the creation of new assets, the recording of asset disposals, creates asset histories and assists in the presentation of various depreciation processes and ranges (according to commercial law, tax law, imputed or IFRS or US-GAAP guidelines). The asset management software can usually work with asset groups and thus take into account differences between land, buildings, machines, tools, etc. The software also offers support in the inclusion of special cases with differentiation between grants and special items.
