Not convinced yet that you need a collateral management solution? Then, this may persuade you:

  • Time cost – the classic economic analysis where time spent by staff locating assets is not time spent producing , servicing or selling
  • Duplication of effort – recreating material from scratch because assets could not be found or were not shared in the first place
  • Inefficient requests – repeated, time-consuming requests for the supply of materials because of the lack of a good self-service system
  • Loss of IP – difficulty in sharing assets via email due to file size restrictions may result in staff turning to uncontrolled file share services which are harder to govern
