Create an Inventory
List all of your equipment and details
Record the manufactures details, which company supplied the equipment, what the
model and serial numbers are, the date it was installed and any other relevant details.
This is essential information to have, before you can do any service work or repairs to
an equipment item, you need to know what parts are required. You can not order parts unless you know who
from, and what details to give the supplier so that they can provide the correct service parts. It is also
important if there are any warranty claims.
If you have a break down, help over the phone is almost impossible with out this information.
So having an inventory provides all of this vital information in one location, it also saves valuable time in
an emergency situation.
These details are also important for your insurers, for practice valuation purposes, for your
accountant for depreciation purposes and for long term equipment replacement planning.
