The Plant Assets module tracks your plant assets. Plant assets consist of items such as poles, wires and meters. The Plant Asset module is fully compliant to the RUS Continuing Property Record (CPR) System. The Plant Assets module will automatically update its records from the Work Order closing process. Entries to increase or decrease plant items can also be made directly in the Plant Assets module.

The key features and benefits of the Plant Assets Module include:

  • Asset Defaults - Every asset in the system is assigned a “class ID” which acts as a template to automatically populate the Fund, Sector, GL Account, and Project fields.
  • Standard Cost Calculation - The Plant Asset module can calculate the standard cost of installing or retiring each plant asset. Calculated costs can be based on labor, materials, equipment, direct charges, and overheads. Standard costs calculated for a plant asset are used as the basis for how costs are added to plant assets during the work order closing process.
  • Additional Features:
    • Quick print option during entry of a plant record, inquiry and detail posting.
    • Automatic updating of plant balances with information from Work Orders.
    • Inquiry screen to view unlimited number of months of history stored in the module.
    • Integration of inventory items to both the install and retirement standard cost to allow quick updating as material price changes.
    • Provides the ability to copy the components for the standard cost of an install of a plant record to the components of the retirement of the same plant record.
    • Ability to update special equipment purchases directly from Accounts Payable.
    • Ability to depreciate plant assets on a group basis from the Fixed Assets module.
    • Ability to track plant in multiple states.
