Asset Management Consulting Services for Maximized ROA
Asset management consulting serves to digitalize asset management for maximized ROA. In software development since 1989, ScienceSoft designs, develops, implements, and supports asset management solutions for tech-driven asset planning and optimization.
Asset tracking and monitoring
- Up to 50% reduced asset downtime
- Up to 24% asset productivity increase
due to optimized asset usage, minimized asset loss and rationalized asset expenditure.
Asset maintenance management
- Up to 25% reduced maintenance costs
- Up to 70% fewer asset breakdowns
- Up to 12% fewer scheduled repairs
due to optimized asset maintenance and real-time monitoring of asset operation.
Asset planning and optimization
- Up to 21% OEE increase
- Up to 5% reduced capital investment
due to optimized asset utilization scenarios and asset investment planning.
ScienceSoft recommends: to reduce time-to-insight, start with developing an MPV with the minimal optimal feature set to address most acute problems and then, if viable, extend the functionality with more advanced capabilities.

Asset Management Investments
The cost and duration of the asset management solutions ScienceSoft implements and supports depends on multiple factors, including:
- Types of assets, their number and growth rate.
- The number and diversity of the functional modules of asset management software. If case-specific functionality is required (e.g., asset condition monitoring, ML-based asset maintenance cost forecasting, real-time object recognition).
- Number and complexity of systems to integrate with (custom and off-the-shelf software, hardware (barcodes, tags, chips, etc.).
- Complexity of the required asset analytics reports and dashboards.
- Solution availability, performance, security, latent capacity and scalability requirements.
- Number of platforms supported (web, mobile, desktop).
