Phinza Enterprise Asset Management (EAM) is based on a sophisticated inventory management system that conforms to OAGISTM defined standards for supply chain, logistics, and data center management. Phinza's advanced inventory database goes above and beyond the ITILTM definition for Configuration Management Databases (CMDB), and keeps track of all information related to your IT assets. An easy to use, browser-based application makes it easy to access information quickly and keep your asset information up to date.


Full Asset Lifecycle

Phinza does more than "discovery tool" based asset management systems, which can only detect equipment connected to your network. Instead, Phinza maintains details of all your IT Assets wherever they are, whether that be in a storeroom, out for repairs, in the delivery dock, or maybe they're non-network related assets like phones and desks. Phinza keeps track of IT and non-IT assets throughout their life, from requirements specification, quoting, through procurement, storage, during their working life, and through to their final disposal. Phinza helps you ensure compliance, while improving your return on capital with an operational approach to life-cycle, inventory, contract, and cost controls of IT assets.                                                                                           

Not all assets are the same

Phinza treats assets differently according to their type. For example, the information and procedures related to a desktop PC are different to those for a server, which will be different to those for network switch or a photocopier. Phinza differentiates between types and treats assets accordingly.


Full Functioned

Phinza doesn't just record information about assets - it assists you in the activities that affect those assets. By helping IT staff do their job and collecting relevant information along the way, Phinza makes it easier to keep asset information up to date. Phinza simplifies and adds control to your day to day asset-related activities, at the same time collecting important, and highly useful, asset-related information.
