ASSET MANAGER SERVICE - Summer Inventories Available With Training.

With the summer break quickly approaching, it is an ideal time to ensure your school has a compliant inventory of its equipment and furniture for the start of the new school year. This summer we are offering this package with training to schools requiring a new inventory.

The Norfolk Asset Manager Software application is designed to provide schools with an easy to use comprehensive electronic inventory of all assets including furniture held at the school.

Asset Manager maintains a full audit trail of equipment and calculates replacement and depreciation costs for all items included in the database. Asset Manager is approved by Norfolk Audit Services. It also enables schools to comply with Item 6 of the Financial Procedure Manual.
