WHAT IS AN ASSET?
Asset: “property owned by a person or company, regarded as having value and available to meet debts, commitments, or legacies.”
WHY DO ASSETS NEED IDENTIFICATION?
Some businesses may want a simple asset tag that has their logo and “Property of” on it to show that the asset belongs to them. Other businesses may want a more complex tag with a serial number or barcode so that they can track the asset. Asset tags are an important part of asset management. Asset tags can help to track an asset’s location, discourage theft, show ownership, track maintenance, repairs, and more. All of these reasons make Asset Tags valuable to both large and small businesses who want to have a proper asset management system in place.
DESIGNING ASSET TAGS – WHAT TO CONSIDER:
- Where is your tag going to go on the asset, and where is the asset going to be? This will affect the size and shape of the tag you need, as well as the material. We have metal tags for flat surfaces, labels for curved surfaces, or flexible plastic tags. If your asset is going to be in a harsh environment, a heavy-duty metal tag will last longer than a thin plastic tag.
- How are you going to attach your tag to the asset? This will determine if you need holes, slots, or adhesive backing. This will also determine hole/slot size and placement on the tag.
- What info do you need the tag to relay? Logo, barcode, phone number, serial number, text, etc. are all things we can customize your tag with, but it’s up to you the tell us what information and numbering you want.
