[fa icon="calendar'] Mar 24, 2015 10:30:00 AM / by Oasis Solutions Group

The third article in our series aids customers in readying their organization for a new solution. sagefixedassets.com’s article “Preparing staff for the adoption of fixed asset management software” outlines best practices to help ensure a successful project. Once a fixed asset inventory management system is selected for implementation, management is aware that processes can be made more efficient by the use of the new system. By creating official fixed asset processes, prioritizing the implementation project company-wide, and maintaining oversight, management can be assured of a full acceptance of the new software.  If you have a fixed assets question or topic that you’d like more information on, please let us know.

Why You Should Avoid Using Spreadsheets for Fixed Asset Management, Part 2

[fa icon="calendar'] Mar 17, 2015 1:30:00 PM / by Oasis Solutions Group

Second in our series of fixed assets posts relates to implementing different inventory systems. In the following blog.sagefixedassets.com article we learn of inventory system methods for fixed asset management. The two inventory systems most small to midmarket companies utilize are the periodic method and the perpetual method. Smaller businesses will find certain benefits to running a periodic inventory system, with periodic physical inventory count being completed to update the asset accounting. While middle-market companies may find this method less efficient. The perpetual inventory system, rather, constantly records and updates the movements and uses of any given equipment or furnishing. If you have a fixed assets question or topic that you’d like more information on, please let us know.

Why Keyboard Shortcuts can improve your efficiency

Okay, I am going to start this off by saying that I know I am an anomaly.  Maybe it’s because my hand-eye coordination is so bad.  Or maybe it’s because I am a lazy typist.  Regardless, over the years I have noticed that my typing habits tend to be more efficient and more accurate than your typical computer user.

[fa icon="calendar'] Feb 9, 2015 11:06:00 AM / by Oasis Solutions Group

Most of us by now have adopted cloud computing in some way, shape, or form.

From the get-go, the concept of cloud computing sounded many security alarms. Now that the cloud is becoming more secure and widely adopted, organizations are leveraging the cloud like never before. I myself have enjoyed many aspects of becoming a ‘cloud based individual’; the flexibility it brings, the ability to access whatever I need ‘on the go’ and the benefit of never having to maintain, upgrade or deal with hardware (and sometimes software) again.
