Acumatica Cloud ERP is one of the many ERP (enterprise resource planning) systems that contain a fixed asset module as part of the application. Having an integrated fixed asset module automates the management of a company’s fixed assets. The automation of this allows an organization to dump their convoluted Microsoft Excel Spreadsheet or Microsoft Access Database for managing the fixed asset process. Using a spreadsheet or database to manage your fixed still leaves you with making journal entries to record monthly depreciation expense and disposal of assets when they are sold or retired. You are also subject to errors during data entry not only of the journal entry itself, but also of the initial setup of the asset in the spreadsheet or database.
