The Do’s and Don’ts To Tracking Your Items
Here at itemit, we have a lot of knowledge centered around item tracking. Thanks to the knowledge that we have built up, we can offer businesses everywhere the chance to track all of their assets.
When we help a business with their asset tracking, we advise them about the do’s and don’ts associated with tracking assets. As a result, businesses can make full use of and reap the rewards of using our item tracking software.
Do Audit All Of Your Assets
In order to make item tracking a success, all of your assets need to be audited. Auditing assets is essential as not only can it help you to understand how many assets you have, it can help you track them.
When every single one of your assets are tracked it’s possible to see the asset’s location, use, and historical data. In addition to this, it’s also possible to keep up to date with every asset’s maintenance schedule.
When you have a lot of information at your fingertips it can work wonders for your business. You can potentially learn more about the direction your business is moving in. Additionally, you can understand whether you have sufficient assets, which assets need to be repaired, and whether more assets are required.
Don’t Forget To Attach Tags
Attaching tags is an important part of the item tracking process. Every tag contains a QR code or barcode. It’s these codes that make a difference in the tracking process. Tags can be scanned and assigned to particular assets. When an asset is added to the system it’s possible to track its location.
In addition to this, a barcode can be scanned and details about the asset will appear. Details such as the asset’s make, model, serial number, weight, size, insurance and warranty information, cost at purchase, etc. can be added. This allows users to track each asset in multiple ways. Not only is it possible to see where the asset’s last-known location was, it’s possible to access a lot of information.
Our tags have been designed to stick to an asset and remain stuck for a long time. As a result, users can track all of their assets for as long as they please.
Do Understand What Needs To Be Tagged
It’s important that businesses everywhere know what assets need to be tagged. Tools, equipment, computers, vehicles, and machinery can be tagged. Items such as stationery and drink dispensers, for example, may not need to be tagged.
Try to determine which assets are your most important. Tag these assets first by attaching a QR code or barcode to them. As soon as the most important assets have been tagged, tag the assets that are next on your list. Do this until every important asset has been tagged. Once all of your assets are tagged you can make the most of itemit’s tracking software.
Don’t Use Software That Makes Things Complicated
The best way to make use of tracking software is to keep things easy. Try to avoid using any software that makes things complicated. Ideally, the item tracking software that you’ll use will have a good management portal and an easy-to-use menu.
The software you choose should also offer very quick access to the information you need. You should not have to make your way through multiple menus to access the information. Rather, you should have it to hand within moments.
The right tracking software should also allow you to print off reports as and when required. When you can see which assets you have and how they’ve been used you can have better business knowledge. Not all asset tracking software allows users to print off reports. As a result, businesses cannot have a clear understanding of every asset they own. This means there’s a real potential for important data to be missed.
