Microsoft Dynamics GP has a Fixed Asset module that provides a company with a simple way to track their assets. Did you know that GP can also track the physical details of your assets as well as financial? As a standard, the asset record includes Location, Physical Location, Structure (often used to identify a department), and Custodian Assignment. In addition to these standard fields, there are 15 user fields that can be defined on a company level. Up to four fields can be set in a date format and 10 out of the 15 fields can have associated look up lists defined. The last 5 fields are currency fields for additional financial tracking.
These user fields can be used to track additional characteristics of an asset. Some examples include details such as storage capacity or operating system for a computer. Additional location level tracking can be defined. Set up a check-out structure. Tailor a list of department assignments instead of using the Structure field. Define PO, vendor, or other purchasing details. The user fields can be defined for additional assignments, status, or characteristics.
