Our Products / Basset Pro



BassetPro is a system to help manage an inventory of physical assets. This could be IT equipment, desks and chairs, heritage assets and artwork, safety equipment, archival files, production or test equipment, tools and jigs for maintenance, air conditioning equipment.

The system uses barcoded identification tags to identify assets, locations, and (sometimes) owners. Handheld computers enable data to be collected easily, quickly and accurately. A full featured desk top element of the system enables information to be analysed and reported.

Comprehensive import and export capabilities mean that information can readily be exchanged with back end systems such as SAP, Oracle or Freebalance. Read on...

RFID (Radio Frequency Identification)

RFID Tags can be used in place of barcoded asset identification tags, but there are at this time some technical limitations, which mean that although RFID is an effective solution for some applications (such as file tracking and managing heritage assets), it can have severe limitations in other applications. Contact SageData directly for more information, or to see if your application is suitable for RFID.


There are several variants of BassetPro, including Standard, Enterprise, Lite and Lite Plus.


The standard configuration is suitable for most medium to large corporations, or an organisation within the Federal Government. This provides a networked application working with a central server, enabling many users to access data. Multiple handheld computers, operating in batch or RF mode, can verify and update the data.


The Enterprise variant includes all the features of the standard option, and adds consolidated reporting, a data sentinel (for backup insurance), automated email notification, the ability to manage images, a dedicated loan function, maintenance functions, MSL (Minimum Stock Level)capability, scheduling of inspections or maintenance activity, and SKU functionality.


The "Lite" variation of the product is intended for small and SoHo businesses, where there is only one user of the system, where there are fewer items to be tracked, and where reporting requirements are not so stringent.

The "Lite-Plus" variant offers limited networking, most suitable for groups of five or less, or for smaller teams which are part of a bigger organisation, but which operate independently.


BassetPro was first introduced in 1993, inspired by a project for Health Canada. Since then we have installed many hundreds of instances of this project in Ottawa, across Canada, and around the world. A year or so back we had a request for support from the Tower of London!

BassetPro has migrated over several platforms, with several major rebuilds of the software, following the functionality laid down, proven and improved by many hundreds of users.

The mobile element has grown, and grown up, taking advantage of the functionality of each new generation of handheld computers as they are released.

BassetPro is well proven, and fully functioned. Our aim is to give you a tool which is powerful but docile. It does the job. No fuss. So that you can focus on your core tasks.
