Inventory control is one of the most important functions in many different types of organisations in today’s society. With numerous products in a constant cycle of deployment and replenishment though, inventory control can be a challenging task.
Safety and alignment
Tagging of assets ensures that products don’t go missing in transit or storage, and it can also help to prevent theft. The implementation of an asset tagging system can improve organisational efficiency greatly too.
Marking of fixed and temporary assets
Many modern offices contain expensive equipment, and tagging equipment can make it easier to keep track of them. Equipment can be tagged permanently with aluminium, vinyl and laminated polyester labels, or tagged temporary with plastic or paper based labels.
Retail product management
Barcoding items in retail stores helps to keep track of items which are in the store and calculate efficiently the number required in the future. Instances of shoplifting can be eliminated by the implementation of magnetic tags which raise an alarm as soon as they pass beyond the door scanners. Barcodes are readable by a special scanning machine. Barcodes can be made more durable by laminating them.
It’s easy too see why asset labels are essential in today’s society.
