HardCat Core Asset Management.

Hardcat software provides “cradle to grave” fixed asset management and is able to track every aspect of the asset’s life from initial budget proposal through to final disposal.

It consists of a Core Asset Management Module and elective modules catering for Purchasing, Barcoding, Depreciation, Help Desk, Maintenance and Stock Control. As a further option, our External Interface Module also allows external applications (eg, web browser, ERP systems) to directly enact various transactions in Hardcat, allowing seamless integration of our best-of-breed asset management into your overall IT solution.
