Warranty Management, in a nutshell
Warranty Management refers to the systematic process of overseeing and optimizing all the warranties associated with an organization’s devices. Its main purpose is to maximize the value of your equipment by staying on top of expiration dates and other important details.
To achieve this, it involves the meticulous tracking and reviewing of accurate warranty information for each asset. When implemented efficiently, this practice helps ensure that devices are repaired, replaced, or maintained during the warranty period, reducing their overall cost of maintenance and guaranteeing they continue to function with minimal interruptions throughout their warranty coverage.

InvGate Insight allows you to centralize and easily track all the information related to your warranties. To be able to do so, you need to have a unified asset inventory that incorporates all the Configuration Items (CIs) operating in your IT infrastructure. This includes both hardware devices and their warranty details.
With the inventory in place, your equipment's lifecycle will be synchronized to the warranty lifecycle. Then, to go a step further and proactively address warranty-related matters, you can also leverage the automation features provided by the tool and make sure all your documents are effectively managed throughout the assets lifecycle.

First, to incorporate the document’s details into InvGate Insight’s system, go to New CI >> Contract >> Assets and choose Contract Type >> Warranty. There, log in the document’s details and link them to the related assets.
Once you have incorporated all your warranties to the inventory, it’s time to create automated actions. This is done through multiple “If this, then that” rules that you can tailor to your team’s requirements.
To set the triggering event, choose from different event types, such as:
