Oracle Asset Tracking is an asset lifecycle management application that provides tracking, visibility and control of dispersed assets for capital-intensive companies. Oracle Asset Tracking maximizes asset utilization and return on investment by automatically synchronizing the operational and physical events of assets with the financial updates in Oracle Assets.

With Oracle Asset Tracking, you can give users access to tracking information without allowing them access to sensitive processes related to assets and purchasing. You can also track inventory items after they have been installed and link financial transactions to the physical movement of equipment.

As part of the Oracle E-Business Suite, Oracle Asset Tracking offers tight integration with other products to provide a comprehensive, reliable and efficient asset lifecycle tracking application. This enterprise-wide integration helps achieve a single source of truth for enterprise assets while reducing the total cost of ownership.

Oracle Asset Tracking (CSE) was a new product in 11.5.10, which integrates with Projects allowing for capitalization of individual items. “Oracle Asset Tracking” was previously known as “Oracle Enterprise Install Base”. This application replaced the “Network Logistics” application and CRL functionality in Projects. Oracle Asset Tracking (SCE) is an add-on financial functionality based on transactions managed by Oracle Install Base (CSI).
