4) Inventory and Equipment

SecurityTrax comes standard with Basic Inventory which allows your team to add any equipment your company uses and manually track inventory and purchase orders, etc.

SecurityTrax also offers Enhanced Inventory, a robust module with a full suite of automation features. For more information, mention your interest when you Schedule a Training Webinar.


In this QuickStart Guide we will set up the following section: Equipment & Packages

Note: Both of these are found within the Equipment link shown below



Enter each individual piece of equipment you install in SecurityTrax. This allows you to easily transfer pieces to Technicians or Office Locations so your staff, Sales Reps, and Technicians always know what equipment you sell, how many of each piece is on hand, and where it's located. You can also create Equipment Packages (to be discussed in the next step).

A spreadsheet of all pieces of your Equipment can be uploaded into SecurityTrax. Submit a SecurityTrax Ticket (Step 2 of the Quick Start Guide). Hourly rates will apply.
