CDO CATS – Critical Asset Tracking Solution

Know exactly what you have and exactly where to find it with CDO Critical Asset Tracking Solution (CATS). When something goes missing, your entire operation comes to a halt until you find it. CDO understands the challenges behind tracking and accounting for critical assets. Get the information you need, when you need it, and keep your operation moving efficiently.

What is Asset Tracking?

Asset tracking is the process of collecting data to monitor the status, location, and inventory of your business assets. Your business can leverage this technology to record data, locate inventory, and track assets in real-time for improved operational efficiency. At a high-level, asset tracking breaks down into three core components: Find, Record, and Track. With the right solution in place, you’ll never have to worry about your assets going missing.

All of your assets have a last known location. As items move through your workflow process, a database is continually updated with accurate location information. The access to last known location data quickly gives you a starting point when it comes time to locate assets.

Capturing data about your critical assets is more than just knowing where they are at any given time. When assets are scanned, a timestamp is created and added to the last known location history log for that specific asset.

Tracking is the third component of critical asset tracking. The information captured in the recording phase creates a very specific picture of the asset’s lifecycle and can provide insight into operational improvement. This data is accessible 24/7 and can be analyzed to determine asset utilization and ways to increase efficiency.

*Client Testimonial: When I had to locate files manually before, it often took a lot of time and sometimes I would have to get others to help. Using our asset tracking solution has significantly reduced my search time for case files. Since starting with CATS, I haven’t had any problems locating files. I have quick and easy visibility to any file in our office. In addition to tracking case files, we scan and track minute books for our partners. With multiple libraries full of minute books, we did not have good visibility to them before, so it’s nice to be able to easily locate the specific minute book we need. – Case Manager at Ohio Law Firm
