Frequently asked questions

Everything you need to know about Shelf (V1 Release)

What is Shelf, and how can it help me manage my assets?

Shelf is an easy-to-use asset management platform that enables you to log, track, and manage all of your physical assets in one place. With Shelf, you can effortlessly create product pages by simply taking a photo of an item and adding relevant tags and information. Whether you're a small business owner or a large enterprise, Shelf provides a simple and customizable way to manage your assets, saving you time and streamlining your workflow.

What kind of assets can I manage with Shelf, and how customizable is the platform?

With Shelf, you can manage virtually any kind of physical asset - from office equipment to warehouse inventory to personal belongings. Our platform is highly customizable, so you can tailor it to fit your specific needs and workflow. You can add as many tags and custom fields as you need, and our intuitive interface makes it easy to rearrange and modify your product pages as needed.

How is Shelf different from other asset management solutions on the market?

Unlike many other asset management solutions, Shelf is designed to be simple, visual, and flexible. We have no strong opinions on what an item/thing is, so you can use it for a wide range of use cases. We've also built Shelf with strong UX in mind, so it's easy and intuitive to use. And because we're a broad-market product, we offer enterprise-grade security and features at an affordable price for our cloud version. For more demanding organisations, we offer Shelf as an Open Source solution.

What kind of security measures does Shelf have in place to protect my data?

We take data security very seriously at Shelf. Our platform is built on top of secure infrastructure, and we use encryption and other security measures to ensure that your data is protected.

Can Shelf help with Compliance for ISO 27001?

ISO 27001 is the international standard for information security management systems (ISMS). While it does not specifically require a company to maintain an asset registry for laptops, monitors, keyboards, and other hardware assets, it does require the identification of assets that are important for the organization's information security and the protection of those assets.

Clause 8.1.1 of ISO 27001 states that an organization should identify the assets that need to be protected, taking into account their value, importance to the business, and sensitivity to compromise.

This identification can be done through a formal asset inventory or registry, which would include information such as the asset's unique identifier, owner, location, and other relevant details.

Therefore, while ISO 27001 does not explicitly require an asset registry for hardware assets, it does require the identification of assets important for information security, and maintaining an asset registry like Shelf can be a useful tool for achieving this goal.
