The Benefits Of Asset Tracking

Asset tracking is the process of logging your assets as unique digital profiles onto an online software. This way, you get a one to one view of how your assets are behaving.

In other words, if an asset has an issue, you’ll be able to log this against the asset itself amongst other data. This creates a robust and transparent view of what status all of your assets are in.

Then, you’ll be able to implement functionality which speeds up your asset tracking operations. Your asset tracking software will come with a variety of features that allow you to book assets, run audits, and monitor asset behaviour with ease.


Tracking Pre-emptive Maintenance And Asset Issues

First of all, you’ll be able to improve your existing operations with hospital and medical device inventory tracking software. One of these will be maintenance.

Pre-emptive and reactive maintenance can cause significant disruption if not handled correctly and transparently. Without a robust system in place, it’s easy to lose track of which assets have issues and when they need to be fixed.

Asset tracking software allows you to monitor necessary maintenance with reminders and issues management. Reminders notify you when a piece of equipment needs to undergo necessary and routine maintenance where an issues management system indicates to your maintenance team which assets have issues, where they are, and specifically what the issue is.

You can also couple this with an effective check in check out system. When it’s time to indicate that an asset is no longer available, you’ll be able to check it out to indicate this.


Auditing Your Equipment With Asset Tags

Asset tags allow you to bring your inventory management to the next level. Simply by using a smartphone or RFID reader, you’ll be able to retrieve assets on your asset tracking app with a simple scan.

Therefore, in practice, you’ll be able to report issues and check assets out when you’re physically with the asset. All you need to do is scan the tag and hit a button and the change will be recorded instantly for all of your colleagues to see.

In a hospital, QR code and barcode scanning may not always be applicable. Using passive RFID tags allows you to get the same benefits of QR code asset management from a distance, meaning you can still audit equipment without disrupting patients.


Using Fixed RFID Asset Management

Fixed RFID asset management takes your hospital and medical device inventory tracking to the next level. With fixed RFID asset tracking, you’ll be able to audit asset locations automatically, with no physical interactions necessary.

itemit is a world-first system for this. Using Zebra’s FX7500 RFID reader and itemit you will be able to set up your fixed RFID tracking system quickly, with ease, and in a low-cost way. In the past, set up times would have been lengthy and disruptive and the system would be blocked behind high-costs and investment.

When your itemit fixed RFID asset tracking system is set up, whenever an asset moves between locations this change will automatically be logged. This way, you’ll know exactly how all of your assets are moving within your hospital and exactly where they are.
