All about Asset Tags, Labels and Stickers
What is an asset tag?
An asset tag is a label that can assist with asset management. It will most often be a QR code or an RFID tag. Asset labels are used so that businesses can scan them to update data related to their equipment in real-time.
Asset labels can also be barcodes or serial number labels. These can be helpful but have limitations in the amount of data they can hold. With QR code or RFID asset tracking, all of your data can be safely kept and updated with ease, without the need for a spreadsheet.
Why do businesses need asset labels?
Asset tagging can help businesses track and manage their fixed assets with ease. Asset tags will provide a higher amount of accountability and functionality than a spreadsheet ever could. Asset labels link your physical assets to the digital world, making them easier to track and manage.
Instead of manually updating the movement of assets between sites, all it takes is the scan of an asset label to update relevant information, such as the asset location and the user who has scanned the asset.
Asset labels cut out the middleman by reducing the amount of time it takes to update asset records and fixed asset registers. They also increase accountability and transparency, meaning that they minimise the risks of human error or asset loss.
itemit’s asset tag stickers will also reduce the chance of theft, as they say, “tracked by itemit” at the bottom. All in all, the use of asset labels and asset tracking helps businesses save time and money.
The asset tag options itemit can provide
The second two types are anodised-aluminium metal QR code asset tags. These have a stronger adhesive and come in 25mm and 50mm sizes. These aluminium tags are great at tracking your equipment, especially if it’s outside and under a lot of pressure. Resistant to weather, chemicals, and UV radiation, these tags will help you track the more significant assets without needing to worry about losing the asset tag.
We can also provide you with RFID readers and a range of RFID tags depending on your own individual needs. Talk to us today to discuss options about RFID asset management or using our app with RFID asset labels.
