Frequently Asked Questions On Asset Tagging & Asset Labels

Frequently Asked Questions

What Are Asset Tags?

Asset Tags are used to monitor and track a company’s physical assets. Combined with an asset tracking software program, asset tags are the foundation for a seamless process of repairs, maintenance and inventory control for companies.

Physical assets can be defined as one of the following types:

Moveable assets. This includes furniture and equipment not part of a building or infrastructure. Laptop computers are a good example of a moveable asset; a laptop may change hands and locations many times throughout its lifespan. Asset tags in this case are used for inventory control, assignment of equipment or supplies, and loss prevention.

Fixed assets. This type of physical asset is also known as an Immovable Asset and essentially defines any physical property controlled by an enterprise which remains in a fixed location throughout its lifespan. It can include lighting systems, buildings and any machinery or equipment attached to a building. In this case, asset tags offer the ability to produce a broad map overview that identifies the company’s assets for the purposes of analysis and project planning. Asset tags are also used to track maintenance and repairs of fixed assets.

Which Types of Assets Require Tagging?

Not every asset needs a tag, but because there are so many uses for asset tags and tracking systems, companies often find it’s a cost-saving investment for tracking other assets not originally considered necessary. Generally, any asset which requires monitoring of some sort – whether maintenance, location, utilization planning, or something else – should be tagged. Those which require ownership verification and assets which could be lost, stolen or damaged should be tagged for security measures.

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.
