Asset Tagging for reliable tracking



Asset tracking is a method for tracking either fixed or moveable physical assets. Sometimes referred to as asset management, asset tracking streamlines the monitoring, managing, and allocating of physical assets through the use of barcode labels or asset tags, which are affixed to physical assets and scanned by barcode readers.


Because barcode labels eliminate the need for manual documentation and data entry, asset tracking eliminates much human error that can result in expensive mistakes that can delay workflows and interrupt the supply chain.

 

Barcode labels allow individual assets to be assigned a unique identification number, making it simple to easily pinpoint the location of a specific asset and more simply by scanning a barcode label. Asset tags and barcode labels are useful for tracking both fixed and moveable assets, but that doesn’t mean that every asset your company owns or manages must be labeled.

 

If your assets have labels with serial number encoded (either barcodes or QR codes), scan the label. Asset ID (serial number) will be read from a label so that you won't have to enter it manually.

 

If your assets are not labeled, we recommend to use QR code labels with sequential numbers (you can easily generate, layout and print them using Gprinter barcode label printers). Pick any label, stick it to a new asset and scan it. The number on the label will be associated with the asset.

 

Tracking fixed assets means that you can easily gather data on the status of company assets and facilitate streamlined processes. For moveable assets, using asset tags or barcode labels to give each item a unique identification number means that, using a barcode scanner, you can easily identify assets and quickly pinpoint an asset’s location throughout your company.
