TekMethods, LLC Joins 20th Century Fox to Produce
IT Asset Management Solution
(Tampa, FL, USA) Tampa, Florida-based TekMethods,
LLC announced the conclusion of an IT Asset Management (ITAM)
engagement with 20th Century Fox, known globally for the production
of movies, television, and other entertainment. Fox had a need
to link their Los Angeles location with 15 other locations in
North America in an effort to collect and account for its IT assets.
TekMethods assisted 20th Century Fox by taking a baseline inventory
of IT assets for nearly 3000 users, then installed and configured
an inventory application designed for ongoing data collection.
Additionally, TekMethods assisted by creating an ongoing process,
using handheld scanners and barcode technology, to account for
and track all incoming and outgoing IT assets on location at 20th
According to Lori Sechio, CEO and principal of
TekMethods, "We love working with companies, public sector,
and government agencies to craft consistent, reliable, and cost-effective
mechanisms to manage IT assets. At Fox, TekMethods was able to
get in on the ground floor to devise an implementation plan for
tracking and accounting of hardware, software, and other television
and movie production assets owned or operated by 20th Century
Fox. It's always exciting to work with an organization that is
as well-recognized as Fox."
TekMethods, LLC is an IT Asset Management company,
specializing in assisting organizations by assessing their technology
management needs, providing tools and implementation expertise
for managing the inventory, configuration, and contractuals governing
the assets, as well as the eventual disposal of mature technology
assets. IT Asset Management is a needed resource for financial,
purchasing, and IT departments of regional and global organizations
as they seek efficiency and profitability.
TekMethods, LLC partnered with Unisys, Intuit,
Ventana Software, and Brazos Technology in the completion of this
engagement for 20th Century Fox.
