The Products We Offer

We offer a wide variety of asset tagging solutions. Take a look at what may work for you.

Asset Tags

An asset tag is a physical or electronic label that identifies and tracks an individual or company asset. The purpose of an asset tag is to ensure that all assets within a company are accounted for at all times. By attaching a tag to each asset, you can easily track where each asset is located, how often it is used, and when it needs to be replaced.

Types of asset tags

There are several different types of asset tags, and each one has its benefits. The most common asset tags are anodized aluminum and polyester asset tags.

Anodized Aluminium asset tags

Anodized aluminum is a type of metal treated to enhance its finish. This makes these tags durable enough for long-term use and can also help prevent corrosion from occurring in harsh conditions.

Polyester asset tags

Polyester asset tags are durable, lightweight, and waterproof. They make it possible to attach many different items easily using pressure-sensitive adhesives or welding seams.  

Components of an asset tag

An asset tag must include the following information:

  • Name of the company: This consists of the full name of your company and where your asset is registered.
  • Company Logo: Your company logo should also be included in the asset tag.
  • Barcode/QR code: The barcode that will enable monitoring your asset tag is also included.
  • Serial Number: A serial number is your unique identifier provided by the manufacturer of your asset

Sticking agent: This is the agent that we to place the asset tag onto your asset. Acetone-activated adhesive protects your asset tag from corrosive environments, while self-sticking adhesive ensures permanent fixing of the tag to your asset.

Barcode/QR Code Scanners

QR codes and barcodes keep information about an item or product in a machine-readable format that is easily scannable with a barcode scanner. Additionally, many smartphones with a barcode-scanning app or QR code reader can also be used in place of a barcode scanner.

Features of Barcode/QR code scanner

The most common features to look for in a barcode or QR code scanner are:

  • Wireless connections: When buying a barcode scanner, ensure it has the proper wireless connection support for a smooth workflow.
  • Wired connections: If you are collecting data with wired scanners, ensure a proper wired connection can support your barcode or QR code scanner.
  • Screen: An interactive screen will make it easier for your team because they’ll be able to see what happens when scanning items and if anything is wrong before moving on to another product.
  • Portability: You may want a durable, water-resistant, and portable barcode scanner if you want to use your scanning device out in the field. However, a simple nonportable scanning device is okay for the retail environment.
  • GPS: A barcode scanner with GPS capabilities is an excellent option for any business that deals in moving items. When an item is scanned in by anyone accessing this system, all other network users can also know its location.
