Wasp Barcode Technologies Launches AssetCloud
Enhanced security provides users access to specific data and software applications based on their role in the organization.Data capture and tracking systems specialist Wasp Barcode Technologies announced the release of AssetCloud, a cloud and subscription-based software that helps organizations track, maintain and collect data on the materials they own. Customer-requested attributes built into AssetCloud include customizable data fields and reports, a simplified check-in/checkout process and ability to recover previously disposed assets. "Platforms that are easier to use have better adaptability," Brad Vinson, Wasp Barcode product marketing manager, told eWEEK. "There’s a lot of high-tech strategizing and complex programming that goes into a platform, but if the user doesn’t easily understand how it all works, he’s not going to use it. Fancy bells and whistles and high-tech accolades don’t mean a thing if the user can’t use them." AssetCloud also offers the ability to create customized reports and a library of commonly used asset management reports, set scheduled audit times and receive status updates on audit completion.
"We did a lot of research to first learn what users wanted in the software, and we also studied how they used asset tracking platforms in general long before we started developing AssetCloud," Vinson said. "Once we had this information, we invested thousands of hours into the UX design and testing alone. It’s little things that make the biggest difference—icon placement, colors, clean designs, responsiveness and smooth operation on multiple platforms."
