eQuip is an inventory management system. It tracks all physical and IT assets, including serialized assets, materials with part numbers, and consumables.

As an inventory management system, eQuip does more than just tracking assets. It manages the life-cycle, fiscal, and physical information of enterprise assets.

By integrating the best practices in asset management, eQuip supports all the business processes in asset life-cycle management: acquisition, assignment, utilization, maintenance and retirement.

eQuip is designed to integrate the financial and operational information, give the business owners complete control over business processes and support optimal management of asset life cycle costs.

Most “asset tracking” applications are point solutions. They only track a sub set of assets, with a limited set of information, in a limited scope of operation, during a period in the asset life cycle.

eQuip has developed out-of-box integration with some key applications: Active Directory, Costpoint, Oracle, Lansweeper, and SCCM.

To integrate with other applications, we use our standard API services.

eQuip supports barcode scanners, as barcode scanners are often an integrated part of asset management.

We install eQuip Mobile software on these scanners. The data collected and updated on the scanner is synced real time (if internet connection is available) or later with the central database.

eQuip Mobile works with any scanners with the Window Mobile OS. Mobile eQuip supports 1D and 2D bar codes, as well as active and passive RFID tags.

Yes, we have eQuip Mobile applications which are compatible with several common operating systems.

eQuip Mobile works with:

  • iOS (10.0)
  • Android 4.0 or higher
  • Windows Mobile 6.5 (Windows Embedded)

Note: Cameras on mobile phones are not always reliable in reading barcodes. Users can buy inexpensive Bluetooth hand scanners to connect with mobile phones or iPad to improve barcode readability.
