ABSTRACT

The record keeping routines, information tracking, complicated logistics and many other administrative procedures are all regular activities that constantly make up the core processes in the management of real and financial assets. However these processes could be quite cumbersome and inefficient when manual systems being used continue to play prominent roles in organizations that offer such services.

Basically, with the advent of Information Technology (IT), some organizations, government agencies, individuals etc. have employed various database management software including relational database and spreadsheet software for the management of assets. However, these application software are generic; hence there is need to design a system that is tailored to specific need of asset management.

Consequently, this project work finds it necessary to study and analyze the difficulties inherent in the administration and management of asset manually in organizations with a view to proposing an extensive solution to these problems.
