Frequently Asked Asset Tagging Questions
What is an asset tag?
Asset tags are durable labels or stickers that identify a piece of equipment or asset using a unique barcode (or serial number). They are usually made up of anodized aluminum or laminated polyester. An asset tag can be used to carry more information, like the company’s logo and information on the equipment that it is placed on
The barcode on the asset tag is used to simplify data entry, making it quick, easy and free from errors. Asset tags are made to fit onto small, mobile yet valuable pieces of equipment. They are continually made smaller, tamper-resistant and integrated with asset tracking software.
What are the functions of an asset tag?
Assets make up the core of all businesses. Assets are risky by nature since they represent a definite cost if they become damaged, are lost or if theft occurs. Therefore, they need to be kept accounted for using asset tagging and tracking.
Asset tags are used to track equipment and assets as they move from location to location. The asset tag needs to be reliable enough to stay attached to the asset for its entire lifetime. These tags will be used to check in and out actions and help define the asset’s movement.
Asset tags are also used for inventory control. Assets are crucial during routine audits of an asset list. They can help determine the asset’s value over time; this is why it’s important to know what the asset is and its worth.
Asset tags help to prevent theft. They make it easy to keep track of who has what and make it easy for staff to return valuable assets to ensure the continuity of the business. The asset tagging system makes it possible to prevent accidental loss of assets.
Asset tags help you keep track of maintenance, repair and operations information. By scanning the barcode on any asset, it can quickly bring up information regarding MRO information and bring the user to a central database that can be viewed at any time.
What is the purpose of asset tracking systems?
Asset tracking systems allow companies to assign unique identification numbers to every asset. These asset tags are printed with barcodes or QR codes, or they can be more advanced like RFID, NFC, GPS, IoT or BLE.
Asset tags get rid of the need for any manual data entry. They improve accuracy and efficiency in your inventory tracking systems and guarantee MRO information documentation.
Asset tagging keeps track of information like an asset’s location, maintenance history, usage and other specifications. This helps you streamline your record-keeping efforts for accounting and taxes. Having the correct data on hand makes it easy for your company to calculate the depreciation of equipment and assets.
What are the benefits of asset tags?
