How can we help you?

  • How does Sitehound help clients reduce costs and increase profits?

The Sitehound keeps track of the location and maintenance records for products, so there’s never a double-purchase. In addition, the app helps with audits by simplifying reporting and facilitates more efficient budgets that factor in risk management.


  • Ghost Assets? Tell me more.

    An often overlooked accounting issue, ghost assets are property that is lost, stolen, or otherwise unusable and is listed as an active fixed asset on a business’s books. Approximately 10%-30% of fixed assets on a business’s financial statement are ghost assets – meaning that you could be overpaying taxes and insurance by 30% at the least. Once you find these ghost assets, remove them from your financial statements so that you can demonstrate you are no longer in possession of the asset.

    Read our article about finding and removing ghost assets.


  • How can Sitehound help save money on taxes?

    Most companies are subject to property taxes based on the total value of their physical assets. However, keeping accurate records and eliminating any “ghost” assets will allow a company to make sure they don’t overpay for those taxes. By using the tips above, companies can reap the tax benefits that come with property taxes in both federal and state jurisdictions by earning it back from goods that have been lost instead of subtracting from assets that have already been fully depreciated.


  • What about insurance? How can Sitehound help save money there?

    Property taxes are typically based on the total value of your assets. If you have too many ghost assets, it’ll make the total value of your property artificially high which means you’ll pay more in property taxes.
