In the market, words like recession and indebtedness are circulating. Profitability challenges abound in both the public and private sectors.

Better control and cost efficiency attract many to do things differently than before, focusing primarily on doing things sensibly.
Recently, new opportunities have emerged in the world of asset management. One of these opportunities is the sharing of assets across organizational boundaries. This enables, for example, joint storage and maintenance of common assets. Digitization provides additional control, efficiency, and reliability in collaboration. The entire community, as well as the environment, benefits from this.

The digitization of manageable equipment is not yet fully regulated, affecting the fact that management is still in the dark for many operators. Much work is still to be done. However, pioneers have already understood the valuable significance of systematic digitization of asset data.
