eQuip!: an Assetworks solution

Dispose Assets – a critical process in the life cycle of physical and IT assets

Asset Disposal is a key process in the life cycle of asset management. It is an event where the asset is no longer going to be used for its original purpose.

There are three options for asset disposal:

  1. Transfer the asset to a different location. This is used for a variety of purposes.

  2. Ship the assets to its owner. For many government contractors or federal grantees, this happens after the contract or grant closes out.

  3. Retire assets. This requires recording of asset disposal in some standard ways defined by the organization
