Asset label Guidance

The use of labels to mark assets is not something that has just happened but it is now a very important tool for any business or organisation. Assets need to be marked for a variety of reasons, important to ensure that they can be identified in case of loss or theft, but they can also be used to ensure that they are included in the company’s finances.

The first thing is knowing just where to put the asset label onto the item. This needs to be where it is in view or accessible to be scanned. It is very important to ensure that the surface of the chosen area is clean and free from grease, dirt and cleaning agents. The label should be tamper-resistant and applied to the item leaving sufficient time for the adhesive to cure fully, usually less than 48 hours.

You need not tag every single thing in a business, of course, perhaps only those items which need protection or are genuine financial assets to the company or organisation. Without question asset tags are a deterrent to petty theft and items can usually be tagged in such a way that any attempt at removal of the tag will make it very apparent that the item is stolen.

First and foremost in most businesses, the asset tag is a theft deterrent, but it also plays an important role in the warehouse too. These are invaluable aids when it comes to taking stock and tracking just where the assets are at all times. Asset tags ensure that you can literally keep tabs on where your items are and ensure that they do not go missing. They also make it easier to trace if it does. Naturally, you will need the right sort of tag and this will depend to a large extent on where your stock is held. Outdoor storage will require a tag which is suitable for that environment, indoor a different one. We will be happy to discuss which of our many asset tags would be suitable for you and also give you a quotation for their production and delivery to you.
