K1000 to pull Dell purchase order/lease information from Dell
The new feature in 5.3 where the K1000 pulls warranty information is great! The integration between the K1000 and Dell would be even better if the K1000 automatically obtained invoice and purchase order numbers from Dell.
The reason this would be useful is that we frequently have to report to finance on asset locations when lease schedule invoices come in. Finance then use this information to back-charge the relevant business units. At the moment my team has to manually enter our PO number, the Dell invoice number, and the lease schedule details into the asset. If the K1000 got this data directly from Dell it would greatly reduce the amount of data we would need to enter for each asset.
YES YES YES... we have the same issue/dilemma as we lease everything from DFS. I'm in a Kace Backyard Boot Kamp with the esteemed Ron Colson in Round Rock and was asking him about this very issue. I was having him show me how to potentially import this information, and his response was "if you are leasing from Dell, we have that information already, we should feed it into your K1000".
