Investment planning

Plan smart and efficient equipment investments based on real asset information

Investment planning is an integral part of equipment management and critical to operational planning. Trail provides a timely view for decision-making and thereby supports making smart investment decisions utilizing lifecycle information for the entire equipment.

Key functionalities

  • Visibility to future equipment investments
  • Efficient tool to plan equipment investments
  • Tracking available budget with equipment investments
  • Centralized asset information supporting decision-making

Capital expenditures are often the subject of significant financial investment and therefore investment planning is an essential part of equipment management. In addition to comprehensive equipment information, Trail also collects equipment investment and cost data in one place from which it is effectively available for financial decision-making.

In addition to cost information, timely life cycle information on equipment helps to make better investment decisions.

Trail produces an automatic investment plan based on the estimated life of the equipment and the estimated replacement price. This allows users to prepare well in advance for future investments. In addition to automatic investment planning, users can create their investment plans and monitor their implementation. The investment plan makes it possible both to mark existing equipment for renewal and to create procurement plans for completely new equipment.

A budget can be defined for the investment plan, which will be fulfilled according to the price information of the equipment to be added to the plan. This makes it easy to keep track of the budget available.

Trail answers to questions like

  • How big asset investments are required in future years?
  • What asset investments are planned?
  • Which equipment is needed to be renewed or replaced?
  • What new equipment is needed?
  • What is the total cost of all planned investments?
