With over 30 years as a leading Fixed Assets Management Solution, Hardcat started in 1986 as a “Hardware Catalogue” software system that tracks essential information associated with assets and equipment.
The system pioneered the use of barcode asset tracking, cutting the time and cost of physical asset auditing to a fraction of that taken with manual techniques, and offered complete mobility, flexibility and audit trail of every interaction of every asset in the database. Today, with over 2,000 partner organisations across all sectors and governance standards, the product was expanded to include different areas of operations, such as depreciation/finance, help desk, purchasing/budgeting, stock control, preventative maintenance, running in both client/server and web environments.
HardCat Fixed Assets Management Solution provides complete control of any asset, large or small, anywhere, on any device; housing all the fundamental activity of every asset in your business. Asset management has been made convenient and accessible, through web-based user interfaces, mobile apps, PDAs, or Application Programming Interfaces (APIs). This ensures Optimized stock and inventory asset management, making faster, more informed decisions, on an easy to use interface
