Employee Asset Management Platform (Admin POV)



In this detailed case study, we will brainstorm and view the user journey, features, and implementation of a hypothetical employee asset management platform called ‘Talent Suit’ from the admin’s point of view.

Problem Statement

Many businesses struggle to effectively manage their employee assets, such as laptops, phones, and software licenses. This can lead to lost or damaged assets, unauthorized access to sensitive data, and compliance violations. 

Addressing this problem, create an admin dashboard for an employee asset management platform where the employees can be added or removed, and their devices can be tracked and managed.

Proposed Solution


Talent Suit is a cloud-based employee asset management platform that helps businesses track, manage and protect their employee assets. Talent Suit provides a single mirrored pane for all employee assets, making it easier for admins to see what assets are being used, who is using them, and where they are located Talent Suit also adds features to help admins manage access to assets, track asset usage, and generate reports.

Talent Suit can help businesses to save money, improve security, and reduce compliance risks:

- Reduce the amount of property lost or damaged

- Prevent unauthorized access to sensitive data

- Follow industry standards

- Save time and money on asset management


Assuming the following:

- The business has an average of 100 employees.

- The data you enter into the platform such as property information and usage patterns, will be accurate.

- The platform will have access control, encryption, and other security measures to protect sensitive employee and property data from unauthorized access.

- Platforms can handle increasing numbers of assets and users without compromising performance as the business grows.

- Managers will be provided with appropriate training materials to use all features of the platform.
