Smarter asset management for utilities reaps rewards

From stop signs and power poles to fire hydrants and traffic lights, things that we see outside of our windows on our commutes are usually identified with tags. This is so that governing agencies can keep track of assets in outdoor conditions without having to constantly re-apply tags.  

Engaging smarter asset management into your utilities, like pole tracking, can reduce downtime, lower maintenance costs, simplify your invoicing, improve accountability and much more through the accuracy and efficiency of data collection. These durable nameplates track what is on the pole, to pole location, to the actual pole itself – making the process more efficient by saving you time and money! 

Metalcraft’s high-performance tags are built to stay on utilities for the lifetime of the asset no matter the challenging environment. Our investment in utility companies throughout the years has netted continuous improvement and a rising ROI for our partners. They enjoy:  

  • Durability and reliability for your assets 

  • Automated asset tracking with real-time, 100% accurate data by location 

  • Records of maintenance, compliance 

  • Service efficiency 

When you need asset tracking in the harshest of environments, Metalcraft is known for their solutions that withstand weather, heat, impact and more, and can customize any solution for whatever your utility needs throw at us. Now that’s ID Made Better®. 

Dirt, grease, grime, even dried paint easily clean off this revolutionary nameplate due to its durable Teflon® coating. Once clean, you get a fast, accurate bar code reading to track assets, fugitive emissions or work-in-process.

Metal Barcode Tags are ideal for customers who require permanent nameplates to stand up in harsh environments.

Metal Bar Code Nameplates combine reliability with the durability you have come to expect with any Metalcraft product. And now we’ve made them even easier to apply with a convenient break-away tab to assist with liner removal.
