Misplaced assets are a challenge for any business, so tracking and keeping order around supplies helps you save valuable time—you’re not wasting time tracking down assets or wasting money replacing equipment you can’t find. Asset tracking labels—whether RFID, barcode or other tracking technology—are designed so the asset can be easily identified and tracked in any environment. Not only is the construction customizable (paper, plastic, metal, etc.), you can also customize your asset tags with text, logos, sequential numbers, barcodes, RFID and more.
Asset tags are used in a variety of different applications but generally fall into five different categories.
Physical Item / Equipment Tracking
Theft / Loss Prevention
Item Reclamation / Discovery
Reports & Records
Brand Awareness / Customer Service
