Asset management makes it easier for organizations to keep track of their assets, giving you the option of knowing their location, how they are being put to use and whether there are changes made to them. Consequently, the recovery of assets can be done faster and more efficiently, leading to higher returns.

Use levels of service to outline the overall quality, capacity, function, and safety of the different services your assets provide. The requirements of maintaining that service will dictate the operating, maintenance and renewal activities that need to occur moving forward.
