Web Accessibility[edit]

Asset recovery software can include anything ranging from a small desktop application to an application that resides on a server that can be accessed by many people across diverse geographic locations. The current trend in larger asset recovery departments is toward increased collaboration and web applications.[1][unreliable source?][self-published source?] The introduction of cloud technology and the rise Software-as-a-service model led to many new offerings focusing on different aspects of asset recovery. Firms can choose between solutions focusing on internal asset redeployment (e.g. AssetGlobe) or alternatives developed by online auction, asset trading and recycling providers.
