Why You Need itemit

itemit is an innovative, smart, and constantly adapting asset management system. Since its inception, itemit has grown to be a powerful suite of useful, intelligent, and business-critical asset tracking features.

The heart of the system has always been the same, you always need to know what you own, where your assets are, how much they cost and who is in charge of them. Presenting this information in a slick system gives you a clean fixed asset register and smooth business operations. This has never changed for itemit. However, the latest versions of the system give you more control, more ease-of-use, and more swiftness tracking your assets.

The Birth of itemit

RedBite Solutions is the creator of itemit and is incredibly well-versed in solving complex asset tracking problems that may seem impossible at a glance. After solving various intricate projects, RedBite recognised the needs are always the same: know what you own, where it is, who has it, etc.

Using their expertise, RedBite productised their offering and itemit was born. Version one was plucky, creative and filled with hope. At the time, using an app to scan barcodes and QR codes to track assets was new and innovative.

Now, you could finally maintain a fixed asset register on a system, export reports and track where your assets had been seen and who had been interacting with them.

Many of itemit’s features that were created in version one still exist today, including the scanning & last seen functionality, reports, and the abillity to attach any custom information to assets. A lot was right first time, but itemit has a Software-as-a-Service and so will never be complete and will always be refined, improved, and tailored to the needs of a modern asset tracking market.

Business Asset Tracking

itemit was born as an asset tracking system but has grown into something much more powerful without sacrificing ease-of-use and without getting complicated or cumbersome. 

In the future, itemit will grow and improve and features will be refined. Ease-of-use, simplicity and creativity will always be at the forefront of the system ensuring anyone can simply pick up and use the system at will.

Best Practices For Equipment Safety And Compliance

Best Practices For Equipment Safety And Compliance

Best Practices For Equipment Safety And Compliance

We are all aware that equipment needs to be taken care of. However, this can be easier said than done. When you have a lot of equipment such as machinery, tools, and even vehicles, taking care of everything can be hard. Additionally, keeping everything safe and compliant can be somewhat difficult. 

There is equipment management software out there that can help you. However, it’s not always clear just how it can help you with safety and compliance. The good news is that this article shows you how you can use equipment management software and other practices to achieve this.

Track Your Assets For GDPR Compliance

You are no doubt aware that you need to safely collect and store personal data. This data relates to your customers, employees, and suppliers. So that you’re GDPR compliant, you must know how to and show that you practise safekeeping of all of this data. 

You can do this easily by using equipment management software that will allow you to:

  • Easily update the information about all of your equipment
  • Restrict the access to data where and when it’s required 
  • Update your employee’s location should they leave your office/warehouse, etc.
  • Update critical information including password protection, if a password is required, the kind of data that is collected, and who has authorisation to log into your device 
  • Securely categorise any assets that are required to be categorised under GDPR law 

When you can track your assets for GDPR compliance, you can have peace of mind. Using some reliable equipment management software can help you to do this. If you still use a spreadsheet or other old software, it may not be as secure as you wish. It would, therefore, be wise for you to use modern software that ensures you can keep all of your data safe.


Business Asset Tracking

Use A Range Of Devices

Did you know that some management software that allows for GDPR compliance can be used on a range of devices? You could download the app to your phone or a tablet. You could also log into an online portal on your desktop computer or laptop. This ensures you have the flexibility you need so you can complete these important tasks no matter where you are.

Stay Up To Date With Equipment Maintenance

Whether you run a multinational business, a small business, or something in between, you should keep your equipment thoroughly maintained. It goes without saying that you should not compromise on safety. All of your tools, your machinery, your vehicles, your computers, and anything else you have should be maintained regularly. 

Keeping a track of maintenance records and schedules is not as easy as you may think. However, when you use equipment management software it makes things much easier. If you still use books or even dreaded spreadsheets you could be missing out. Books and spreadsheets can be full of errors, which means not everything could be maintained as well as it should be. 

When you use equipment management software you can add maintenance schedules for all of your tools, vehicles, etc. As a result, you could ensure that everything is in good working order at all times. Should something choose to break down (and we all know that equipment chooses to do so at the most inconvenient times), alerting the maintenance team is possible via the app or online portal. 

Staying up to date with equipment maintenance is crucial but it can also be easier than you think. When everything is looked after, it could mean that you spend less on maintenance and replacing broken tools. It also means that you can get on with the task in hand without worrying if something will break down at any given moment. As a result, you could meet and even beat deadlines.

Create Reports

The ability to create reports is not available to everyone. However, some types of management software will allow you to do this. When you can create reports, you can see how well you are performing, which tools have recently been maintained, and if you’re up to date with GDPR practices. 

Some management software will let you export reports of your choice so that you can have the data you need when you need it. This is very convenient as it allows you to take a close look at many different aspects of your business. With this information, you could help your business to grow. You could also stay on the right side of GDPR law and remain fully compliant. When you do, you can have peace of mind. You could even tell your customers/suppliers, etc. that you work hard to be compliant and safe.

Tracking your Torches and Pitchforks with itemit

Tracking your Torches and Pitchforks with itemit

Tracking your Torches and Pitchforks with itemit

Have you ever been in a situation where the local castle dweller has been running amok and you need to locate your torch and pitchfork but just can’t find them? Ever been face to face with a bloodthirsty vampire and found out your garlic wasn’t audited correctly and is a ghost asset, so to speak? Ever miscounted your silver bullet inventory and come up short on the night of a full moon?

Fret not, itemit has the solution. Vampires, werewolves, monsters are just some of the ghouls itemit can help you slay, not least any ghost and zombie assets plaguing your fixed asset register.

So, how can you track your spooky assets with itemit’s asset management system?

Location Tracking with itemit

itemit’s asset tracking software gives you access to many features and functions. Primarily, you can add a list of everything you own, from your favourite vampire-slaying boots, to your favourite chainsaw (depending on the side you’ve chosen). Then, you can track where these assets have been seen.

The quickest way to track assets is using asset tags, QR codes or barcodes, which can be affixed to your assets with ease (no ectoplasm necessary!). Asset tags come in many shapes and sizes and are completely customisable, meaning you can get ones so shiny that even a vampire would see their reflection, or ones so subtle that any ghost would be jealous of how well they blend in.

Then, you can simply scan these tags using the itemit app and, as if by (black) magic, the asset’s last seen location will update, giving you a permanent record of where your assets have been seen.

Auditing, and Busting Ghost Assets

Every time you scan an asset’s tag, its last seen location will update alongside the time of the scan, the date, and the acolyte who scanned the tag. This means you can pull off handy reports of which assets have been seen in the previous 28 days, 28 weeks(, or 28 months).

Not only this, but you can also use itemit’s dedicated audit feature to blast ghost assets and run a speedy stock-check. It works better than any of the other ghost-busting equipment on the market, and you won’t need to worry about crossing the streams because all of your colleagues can use itemit at the same time to contribute to your asset tracking effort!

Decentralise your asset tracking and raise an army to do your dark bidding (which, of course, is filling in any potential gaps in your audit trail before they happen).

Our ghost-busting doesn’t go unrewarded, either, as itemit has won awards for innovation, high ratings, and industry leading software. We’re not full moon-lighting when we put time and care into our system!

Sending Zombie Assets to the Grave

itemit also gives you visibility over maintenance, asset information, depreciation data, and more, and lets you pull off custom reports via pdf or excel export. You can also import existing information, so you’ll be able to exorcise your existing spreadsheets and import them straight into itemit.

With this levels of visibility, it’s easy to see when an asset is at risk of turning into a zombie or a ghost. You’ll be able to scan the asset’s tag to verify it has the correct information associated with it and cure the zombie plague on your records.

When you notice something is wrong with your asset register, it can cause a night of the living dread, so fear not, using itemit can help you keep things clean, tight, and under control with all of these easy-to-use features.

Know what you own, anywhere in the world

itemit’s asset management system is fully cloud-based, meaning you can update your information from anywhere in the world or monitor it remotely. Colleague headed to Transylvania? Monitor that all of your stakes are up to date. Wondering where your mask (we’re talking about PPE, of course) was last? Check the asset’s last seen location to retrieve it. Need to stock check your brooms and black cats? Run an audit.

Rest easy knowing that your asset tracking software is handling everything, even on this hallowed eve.

5 Types of Equipment You Can Track with itemit

5 Types of Equipment You Can Track with itemit

5 Types of Equipment You Can Track with itemit

It’s essential that all types of businesses know where all their equipment is at all times. However, this can be easier said than done. Keeping track of every tool, computer, laptop, or camera can seem like an impossible task. Having multiple users or having tools taken to different locations can make tracking difficult. This is why itemit’s Equipment Tracking software can make a real difference. 

Thanks to the way that it works, itemit’s tracking software can tell you where all of your equipment is all day, every day. Ultimately, it means users will know who has the equipment, why they’re using it, and exactly where it is. With this knowledge, users know how much equipment they have and whether more is required. 

There are many different types of equipment that can be tracked using itemit’s Equipment Tracking software. Below, you can find details of just 5 types of equipment that can be tracked.

The Best Asset Tracking Implementations And Use Cases

Office Equipment

The sheer amount of equipment that can build up in an office may be surprising. From computers to printers, stationary, to paper shredders. It can occasionally be difficult to track equipment, particularly when there is a lot of need for it. Equipment that needs to be moved from office to office can often be misplaced. 

Using tracking software, it is possible to know where each piece of equipment is at all times. Additionally, itemit’s software shows who is using the equipment. With this knowledge, potential users can find exactly what they need, and put in a request to use it. 

When equipment is obviously in high demand, management has a clearer idea of how often it is used. They can, therefore, make a more informed decision about whether they need to purchase more units.

Construction Equipment

Keeping track of construction equipment can be difficult. However, when every piece of equipment has a QR tag attached to it, it’s easier to track. The right equipment can be sent from one location to another as and when it is required. Tools are less likely to go missing, and equipment can be maintained when it malfunctions. 

By keeping track of every piece of equipment, construction companies can take a look at each machine’s historical use. Again, this can help them to make a more informed decision as to whether they need to purchase more units. In addition to this, the data also helps companies to determine the value of their equipment. 

School Equipment

Equipment Tracking can prove to be particularly useful for those who work in schools. Knowing where the much-needed equipment is at all times can be useful. In addition to this, tracking software can increase levels of security. Users can track items at all times, even when they are taken off school premises. 

Schools that have a tight budget may find the right tracking software useful as it can show where money is being spent. There’s also an opportunity to add equipment information to the tracking software. Thanks to the selection of menus available, users can add licence, warranty, and insurance information. 

Details such as this can be invaluable when something goes wrong. Spending a lot of time searching for insurance details, for example, can be a thing of the past. With a quick press of a few buttons, users can find everything they need. Not only can this save time, but it can also save money as it helps to prevent schools from buying more equipment when sending something for repairs would have sufficed.

Film Production Equipment

Film production equipment is expensive, so being able to track it is crucial. Having the right equipment with you at all times is important. Cameras, tripods, sound equipment, lighting equipment, cables, etc. need to be close to hand at all times. Not having the right equipment can mean that production takes much longer. However, with the right Equipment Tracking software, users will know what equipment they have in the studio and which items they need to collect.

Sports Equipment

Sports clubs have a huge amount of equipment both in use and in storage. Keeping an inventory of such equipment is not always easy. This is where tracking software can help. Sports clubs can scan every single piece of equipment into the computer or mobile device and know where it is at all times. This can prove to be hugely beneficial, especially for sports clubs that share equipment across events. 

Understanding which team has what equipment and the state of repair can help immensely. Sports clubs will have an additional level of security while also knowing what needs to be repaired or replaced.

How RFID Asset Tracking Changes The Game For Equipment Management

How RFID Asset Tracking Changes The Game For Equipment Management

How RFID Asset Tracking Changes The Game For Equipment Management

Automation improves productivity and increases efficiency. On this note, we’ll be discussing RFID asset tracking, and how it can provide your business with much needed next-gen automation.

How To Use RFID Asset Tracking Software

What is RFID Asset Tracking?

To put it briefly, RFID asset tracking is quite similar to using QR asset tags. In its simplest form, RFID asset tracking is a way of automating the process of managing and locating physical assets.

By attaching a physical RFID tag to an asset, you can easily associate data with the said asset. As always, data may range from name, assignee to value and location.

How Does Asset Management Work?

You’re probably wondering how RFID asset tracking factors into asset management. So, let’s start off with the basics: an asset management system allows you to log each of your assets as unique, digital profiles. These profiles can then be populated with data and tracked accordingly.

Moving on, asset tags are physical entities, linking your physical assets to their digital counterparts. These tags can be barcodesQR codes, or RFID labels.

Scanning an asset’s tag redirects you directly to the asset’s digital profile, making editing and updating of asset details a breeze.

Additionally, scanning an asset’s tag will automatically log the time, location and identity of whoever performed the scan. This will boost accountability in your business, allowing you to track your assets directly from the ease and comfort of your home!

What Benefits does RFID Asset Tracking Provide to Your Business?

Whether you want to automate auditing or improve accountability, RFID asset tracking got you covered.

Using RFID asset management, you can simply sit back and relax, while your assets collect the data without any need for manual scanning and tracking. Likewise, by utilising handheld RFID capabilities, you can instantaneously update and monitor your assets data.

Though the speed and accountability benefits are of significance, the accuracy achieved from automation is the game-changer, reducing losses stemming from human errors.

However, the list doesn’t end here. No matter what industry or organisation you may belong to, tracking your tools and equipment holds immense importance. With the help of RFID asset tracking, you’re able to monitor how your tools and equipment move throughout your sites-all without any form of manual input.

Different Forms of RFID Asset Tracking

Fixed RFID Asset Tracking

Using RFID asset tracking, you can log physical asset location via GPS tracking. For instance, you can log assets as in a particular room, floor, or building. This essentially gives you more visibility over your assets.

In fixed RFID asset management, location tracking is completely automated. What this means is that every time an asset enters a location, the change in location will be automatically logged within your asset tracking software.

This system makes use of RFID scanners strategically placed at key points throughout your facility. As a result, whenever an asset crosses these points, its location is updated accordingly.

Naturally, the benefit is obvious: auditing and location tracking requires no human interaction. Automation leads to assets being less prone to being misplaced, and better tracking of inefficiencies in your supply chain.

On the other hand, fixed RFID asset management has one noticeable disadvantage: it is costly. However, the return on investment can potentially surpass the cost, increasing the profitability of your business in the long run.

Handheld RFID

If you’d rather test out RFID asset tracking before implementing a full-blown fixed RFID asset management within your business, handheld RFID may be the way to go.

Using handheld RFID you can still track and manage assets from speed and at a distance, however, you’ll have to scan said assets by hand.

The principles in fixed and handheld RFID asset management remain the same. The only difference is that in the case of handheld RFID tracking If you want to identify all of the assets in a location, you’ll have to enter that location and hold down on your handheld RFID reader’s trigger. this will detect every RFID tag in your vicinity.

For small to medium-sized businesses, handheld RFID tracking can easily accommodate all of your needs. The smaller upfront cost guarantees affordability and RFID naturally boosts productivity.

Why is RFID Asset Tracking Better Than Its Alternatives?

Compared to your traditional QR code or barcode scanner, the reason RFID tracking does not require a direct line of sight with the scanner itself. This allows for more innovative ways of incorporating RFID tracking and ensures that less time is expended in manually scanning each asset’s tag.

itemit: The Next Step In RFID Asset Tracking

If you want to boost your business’s efficiency or reduce losses, itemit is the way to go. Whether you want GPS tracking, image detection, or RFID scanning, itemit’s asset management software can help you in any scenario.
