CYA creates a digital link between assets and locations
Capture your assets
You’ve built your business one account at a time, day after day, with thousands of hours of effort. It’s an impressive portfolio. But, over time, your equipment has moved around and things have become complicated. We know, because we've been there. CYA is designed to organize your inventory once-and-for-all.
CYA creates a one-and-done catalog of your asset base. If you have a well organized list of assets already, we'll upload them and you're off and running. If your list is less-than-perfect, just pick a machine and start scanning. Each machine you capture is at your fingertips, permanently recorded for reference at your convenience.
“Over the years, we've seen that coffee people create their own systems for tracking equipment. These systems are sometimes unreliable, with cumbersome data that requires a lot of manual effort to keep up-to-date. We know this is true, because for 20+ years we were those coffee people using our makeshift systems. Endless lists on clipboards, Excel sheets, and visits to verify quantity and serial numbers. We developed CYA to make the collection and maintenance of equipment data very, very easy. We wish we had it 20 years ago.” - Dan McCloskey, Founder and Chief Creative Officer
Sticker and Scan
CYA uses a simple but elegant system for managing assets. It's all about ease of use and quick understanding.
When a barcode is scanned, the system compares the GPS coordinates of the phone with the assigned location in the system. If the two match? Green Light. If the two do not match? Red light.
At that same moment, a scan timer starts from zero for that asset. At times set by you, the meter goes from green, to yellow, to red, reminding you that it's time to visit that asset again.
Indicators roll up by location, providing the worst-case notice. Got one piece of equipment your team has ignored in a location? Red light.
Of course, a scan also documents the user, the geo-location, and date/time stamp for each piece of equipment. Details like serial number, price, cost, disposition and placement can be edited with a swipe. CYA maintains a full location history, providing data on all loaned equipment by customer and location.
“The idea behind CYA is to provide fast, simple, and meaningful functionality. We refer to our mobile device app as ‘thumb-driven.' meaning the most important features are only a swipe or tap away. We make it easy to capture data on the fly when your team runs into equipment not yet in the system, and once entered, we make it even easier to keep track of those assets. We honestly designed CYA to be dummy-proof." - Sean Birmingham, Founding Partner and CTO
Simple and Secure
CYA navigation is fast and intuitive. We designed the system to be used without a lot of work or preparation.
CYA is Cloud-based, allowing you to access the system from your cell phone or your internet browser. The mobile app works on Android or iPhone, and the web app works on any computer. Your data updates in real time when refreshed on any device. Customers can add as many users as they want, assign them with administration or scan-only privileges.
CYA data is securely stored in the Amazon Web Services Cloud utilizing industry recommended best practices to maintain data security, integrity, and accessibility. Snapshots of the CYA environment are created daily, and back-ups of the CYA database are stored off-site to ensure the persistence of company data. Additionally, multiple layers of security have been implemented to make certain that account data is only visible to authorized users.
