What is an Asset Tagging Service?

As industries grow more complex, technology advances, and with the emergence of new processes and demands, companies can struggle to have a sense of order.

You might find you have more assets to manage coupled with additional regulatory requirements and need a provider that is centralized, accessible, and organized in asset management.

Having your assets tracked systematically is an essential part of your asset management processes and overall supply chain.

The Advantages of Asset Tagging for Your Business

With asset tagging, you can better handle your assets and keep track of their locations. However, the advantages of asset tagging extend beyond this!

In fact, you can now associate a variety of data with an asset through asset tagging, including its users, maintenance schedule, and depreciation value.

With this in mind, these are some of the most critical advantages of asset tagging for your business:

  • Save time and money.
  • Improves customer satisfaction.
  • Meet compliance requirements.

At Wills Transfer, we offer a variety of third-party logistics (3PL) services, including pick and pack services, asset tagging, and kitting services. And so, your assets are in good hands with us as your 3PL service provider.

What are asset tags?

“Asset” is a general term applied to something considered physical property. There are two primary types of assets: fixed and moveable assets.

A fixed asset, also known as an infrastructure asset, is confined to one physical location from which it cannot be moved. This may include anything from buildings and bridges to road signs and plots of land.

On the other hand, a moveable asset is an asset that can (as the name suggests) be moved. This is physical property such as electronic equipment, furniture, or any type of product or saleable item that is not physically routed to a fixed location.

Asset tags may be used on both fixed and movable assets. They are small, sometimes metal labels, which are fixed to assets for several purposes. For this reason, asset tags can be used to track inventory, monitor products, and much more.

Utilizing asset tagging on your products is a great way to add extra layers of safety and security to your goods. Curious about all the benefits of asset tagging? Read on!

Special Note. Asset tags and labels are exposed to many harsh conditions, including extreme temperatures, chemicals, solvents, abrasion, frequent cleaning, UV rays, and outdoor elements like rain or snow. Wills Transfer can provide you with experienced asset tagging solutions that are fundamental for your asset tracking system.

Asset Tagging Helps You Save Time and Money

These are the ways that asset tagging can help save you time and money:

  • There is no need for anyone to track down assets manually. This frees up time for your employees to concentrate on other tasks that can produce income.
  • It can help you track the life cycle of an asset, so you know where in its cycle an asset is and when you’ll need to replace it.
  • It helps prevent the loss of essential and expensive items like laptops and equipment that could be misplaced or stolen.

Asset Tagging Improves Customer Satisfaction

Another way asset tagging can benefit your business is through improved customer satisfaction.

We live in a world where people expect their orders to be filled efficiently and shipped quickly. No one wants to wait days for their order to be available, whether you’re supplying them with parts or a finished product.

With asset tagging, you quickly know how much of an item you have on hand and how to locate it!

Asset Tagging Can Be Used to Meet Compliance Requirements

Another way asset tagging can benefit your company is it can be used to meet compliance requirements. There are always new regulations to keep up with, and asset tagging is one great way to do this.

With the right kind of asset tagging and tracking software, you can collect and generate reports within minutes instead of days.

This saves you time and money and makes it easy to generate new reports as new regulations are implemented.

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?

    Asset tags are extremely beneficial when it comes to auditing and compliance. Asset tags help you keep track of and gather information on every one of your assets. Here are the benefits of using an asset tracking system with asset tags that will help improve your operations:

    • Real-time information and management of your assets
    • Opportunities to upgrade your asset database as your business expands
    • Low administrative costs, as well as decreases the amount of time, wasted spent looking for assets
