Manage All Your Business Assets

Workday combines the traditionally separate domains of fixed assets and inventory with the ability to manage and account for all your business assets – from high-value, low-cost assets like laptops and mobile phones to intangible, high-value assets like rights and licenses. And it all happens in a single, unified system.

  • Manage your asset roster, depreciation and lifecycle accounting
  • Define, track and account for both tangible and intangible assets
  • Track low-cost and zero-cost items that have high value or liability (e.g., mobile devices or security badges)
  • Assign custody and responsibility of items to workers to prevent cost leakage and security risks due to worker turnover
  • Account for business assets according to accounting rules and track according to business use
