Part of that means knowing your employee status (part or full time) and tracking an employee’s number of hours worked.

Knowing in advance some of the hidden costs that come with running a business will help beginning owners plan for and understand what it takes to be successful. 3.

IT asset management gives the ability to be immediately aware of asset location and status, providing control over fixed assets needed to run an organization more productively.
