Webcast Summary

Think about your busiest and most hectic mornings: have you ever misplaced your keys or forgotten to bring your umbrella, even though the weather forecast calls for late afternoon showers? It’s hard enough to keep track of the items we use on a day-to-day basis, much less audit things we don’t use frequently.

Yet that’s exactly what organizations must do in their fixed asset-management process to be able to accurately and precisely understand their reporting and compliance postures at any given moment. Without an efficient fixed asset-management process in place, an organization leaves itself vulnerable to costly and damaging consequences like higher insurance premiums, overpayment on taxes, a greater total cost of ownership, more manual reporting errors, unprotected assets, and risk of non-compliance.

Using the right fixed asset management tools and processes, though, companies can create efficiencies and improve accuracy in managing, depreciating, and tracking fixed assets, from asset acquisition to disposal.

During this Webcast, Celina Rogers, VP and Editorial Director of CFO Publishing, and Grant Griebel of Sage will explore how improving your fixed asset management process can:

  • Drive down regulatory risks,
  • Maximize return on capital investments,
  • Deliver greater control and reporting capabilities,
  • Assist in fraud prevention, and
  • Reduce unnecessary costs.
