Asset Management Software

tesma is our in-house asset management software system that allows users to know what devices you’ve got, where they are and how much they really cost you. Having our own asset management software allows us to manage all the data going in (meaning you don’t have to input anything into the system) and regularly update the software to ensure our customers have access to the most innovative, best IT management software possible.

What is asset management software?

Asset management software (sometimes called software asset management, or SAM) is a tool that is used to record and track various assets throughout its lifecycle (asset tracking). The asset management tool can provide an organisation with information such as where assets are located, who is using them, details about the asset such as device type, serial number, etc. How they are being used and how much they cost. An asset management platform can be used for both hardware assets and software. 

Why is it important?

Asset management software is an important tool as it allows organisations to know what assets they have coming in and out of the business. Assets that are going out of the business need to be disposed of properly in an eco-friendly way and undergo a data erasure process. If these assets haven’t been tracked on the way in, then they can’t be tracked on the way out, resulting in potentially sensitive data being at risk. Furthermore, having asset software solutions in place can reduce overall IT spend, improve the security of the business and disaster recovery processes, and finally reduce the governance risk from legal requirements and audits such as the GDPR regulations.

Who uses asset management solutions?

Asset management software is used by a wide range of organisations covering all sectors across the private and public sectors. The NHS, universities, local authorities, betting companies, online retailers, telecoms providers etc., all use some form of asset management software in the day to day running of their business. Multiple departments can benefit from asset management software, including IT, purchasing and accounting/controlling.

This enables us to have instant access to a comprehensive database of assets procured via leasing and can be broken down on a school by school basis.

“CHG-MERIDIAN provided us with a straightforward agreement that allowed us to keep our technology up-to-date and also allowed us to have a full rolling replacement, which was more cost-effective in the long run. Furthermore, this also gave us the power over the manufacturer to negotiate the best possible price on both the service element and also the capital cost. Lastly, CHG’s asset management software system, tesma, has provided us with complete transparency over the solution in addition to the bonus of VAT savings!”

Clive Mosby, Head of Procurement, Mid Cheshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust


“The project is still in the early stage of strategy and design, but in CHG-MERIDIAN, we found the right answer in terms of flexibility and enthusiasm. We were very impressed by the initial consulting phase, their market expertise and by how they listened to our needs in terms of contractual options, multi-invoicing and asset management by location and by cost centre. CHG's in-house asset management software web tool, tesma, has been huge for us as it allows us to gain full transparency of both leased equipment and owned equipment, all on a single platform."
