Asset Data Collection

Asset data collection, is the process of collecting physical asset data.

Asset Management Systems are dependent on accurate asset data, including; the location of the asset, its condition and its physical attributes.

Asset data can be collected at the time an asset is created or at any other time in its life-cycle.

Asset data may be initially recorded;

  • manually onto a paper form.
  • manually into a laptop, tablet, smart phone, PDA or any other mobile device.
  • automatically via a sensor, camera or other apparatus into a digital storage device.
  • manually via office-based asset capture using 3D Street Level Imagery (earthmine)
