I have the task of recording assets for one of my clients into a database of some sort. Instead of manually adding them by sitting at a desk, I would like to be able to add them via mobile, by way of an image and recording the data. This will save me time and enable the client to view, update and record changes easily in the future. Assets will include, company resources like: PC's, Laptops, Vehicles. aircons, UPSes, properties and other electronics. The main purpose of this, is for my client to have a complete list of his assets, be reminded of maintenance, licences etc. and be able to view work done on the assets by his employees. My client uses MS 365 and thus has access to the Power Platform, Dynamics, Sharepoint etc. First prize, would be, if we could make use of the Microsoft products, because it is already paid for. Perhaps Dynamics 365 is the answer with PowerApps? So the Freelancer I am looking for should posses the following qualities:
1. Be fluent in English. Communication should be easy, both in writing and speaking.
2. Be able to explain and guide me as if I am completely new to this kind of technology
3. Have a business mindset and guide me to the right solution, instead of just assuming I know what I need.
4. Present Ideas, other applications or software if it seems more fit for the purpose. Maybe there is an off the shelf solution?
5. Bear in mind that there might be users, outside of the organisation needing to record assets, that might not be a MS 365 user
6. Lastly, I'm looking for a freelancer that is an expert on the MS 365 products, as we have little knowledge of SharePoint, Teams, Dynamics etc. I would thus like to build a relationship that might result in future MS 365 projects.
I have attached and Excel workbook, of how I think (with my limited knowledge) the database should be structured.
