Plymouth trust deploys asset management software

Plymouth Hospitals NHS Trust awards contract to Real Asset Management for asset register

Plymouth Hospitals NHS Trust has implemented new asset management software to keep track of more than 7,000 items of stock.

The contract with Real Asset Management (RAM) will see the introduction of the Asset4000 solution to provide a register of all the trust’s fixed assets.

Rebecca Ferguson, capital accountant at the trust, said: “The licensing on our previous fixed asset system was coming to an end so we considered it a perfect opportunity to survey the market and go out to tender to find the best solution for our needs.”

Discussing the implementation process, she added: “A large number of acute trusts in the area also use RAM as a fixed asset software provider and we conducted a consultation process to discover how they rated the software. The feedback we received was highly positive and this, combined with RAM’s knowledge of our fundamental NHS business requirements, helped make the decision to choose Asset4000 a simple one.”
