What is an asset tag?
An asset tag is simply a label put on an item to uniquely identify it. It comes with a logo in full color or in black and white, a bar code or Qr code and a unique serial number to uniquely identify the asset on which it is fixed on.
Which Assets Require Tagging?
When Are Bar Codes Necessary for Asset Tags?
Bar codes provide error-free, machine-readable (bar code scanners) recording, avoiding manual transcription errors caused by humans. These are valuable – and often necessary – to businesses or educational institutions with large or diversified inventories of physical property that must be monitored, tracked or maintained.
Bar code readers or scanners decode the information in the bar codes and compare them against a database for tracking or maintenance purposes. This provides secure access to a number of records and pieces of information for essential team members. This information can be more readily shared across an organization without the need to copy or scan what could be sensitive documents.
When Should I use Sequential Serial Numbering?
Sometimes, human-readable elements can provide an added layer of functionality to an asset tracking system. Assets using such a numbering system may be deciphered without scanners, or at least more readily identified by personnel for accessing deeper levels of data within a database. Numbering of bar code labels may be sequential or non-sequential, and may start from any number or use any series you specify.
Can the Labels be Easily Peeled Up?
Our asset labels are designed to be extremely durable. When combined with our permanent pressure sensitive adhesive, these labels will last the lifetime of your assets.
How do I fix the asset tags?
Asset tags come with an adhesive at the back. For self-sticking tags you just peel off the paper at the back to expose the active adhesive the apply pressure to fix the tag on the asset. For acetone-activated tags, you peel off the paper at the back then slightly apply acetone to activate the adhesive then apply gentle pressure to fix the tag on an asset.

What is asset verification?
Asset verification is the process of making valid the information on assets, for example for property, plant and equipment; confirming the existence, location and condition of the asset. Knowing what assets you have, where they are located, when they were purchased, if they are still in use, etc. is critical to any organization.
