How Do Asset Tags Work?

Asset tags work by linking physical assets to online, digital profiles. When you’re asset tracking, you’ll create digital profiles of all of your assets. These profiles are where you can add crucial financial, maintenance, and location data.

When you have an asset register, you’ll be able to stick physical asset tags onto your assets. These asset labels can then be scanned into your system so that every subsequent scan retrieves the corresponding asset’s digital profile.

Tagging and Tracking with QR Code Asset Tags

Asset tags come in all different shapes and sizes. You’ll be able to use barcodes, QR codes, RFID tags, and GPS trackers.

QR code asset tags are helpful as they’re unique, meaning you’ll be able to create unique assets in your asset profile, making retrieval and data entry simpler.


What Are The Benefits of QR Code Asset Management?

The benefits of QR code asset management are clear. You’ll be able to view, edit and update asset information by scanning an asset’s tag and then logging any changes.

Every scan of an asset label also updates the asset’s last seen location and the user who scanned it. This all provides you with multiple benefits.


Speed Up Audits

The ability to scan an asset’s tag and retrieve that asset’s profile speeds things along greatly.

If you notice an asset requires maintenance, therefore, all it takes is a scan of an asset’s tag, and you’ll be able to log necessary maintenance instantly.

You’ll also be able to use quick-add functionality. What this means is that you’ll be able to scan multiple assets into a new location or collection quickly.

Create Location Data

As every scan updates an asset’s last seen location and the user who scanned it, you’ll be able to see exactly where assets were when they were interacted with.

This location history will be visible in your asset management software, meaning you’ll be able to see which assets move frequently and which don’t. Overall, this helps you make effective retrieval and financial decisions.

As you know where assets are, you’ll be able to save money on petrol and save time finding assets for use on your projects.

Share Your Asset Tracking

Asset tags also increase the shareability of your asset tracking software. As digital asset profiles are linked to physical tags, this means that anyone with access to the system will be able to scan the tag and update asset information.

You’ll also be able to set user permissions, meaning that only people with certain accesses can view certain information. Anyone will still be able to scan an asset in and out of a site, however, making everyone’s life easier.
