A small company was in search for a software that keeps track of the cost of assets through its useful life. This in turn would be used to determine when an asset has reached its economical useful life. They searched for an application that would fit their needs. Through a recommendation, they implemented a big commercial application that is in use in a variety of manufacturing and utility companies. Although this software accomplished their needs, it was not a great match. The goal of this project is to create a slim down version of an asset management software that performs better, more user friendly and is accessible through mobile devices. The user base is not frequent computer users so working with them in an Agile style development was important to obtain that user friendliness.
