Keeping track of portable equipment: the easy solution

asset labelsToday most things are portable.  Not desks and whiteboards, of course, but laptops, cameras, musical instruments, lenses…  

What is needed is a system in which there can be no question as to where anything is.  Whether an item has been loaned to a student or member of staff, you still need to know where it is and when it should be returned. 

The problem is exacerbated by the fact that some students or staff may from time to time bring their own items to work or school. This obviously reduces pressure on the organisations equipment, but it can lead to confusion.

In short, all this equipment needs to be properly logged – but ideally not by manually entering serial numbers.  

small asset labelsThe solution comes through the use of asset tracking using asset labels like Dantech's ID Mini Mark labels which allow you to identify and track each item. Each asset label can include a serial number and/or barcode thus making it possible to contain a lot of data in a small space.

These mini asset labels can therefore fit onto even small accessories.

Furthermore, because the data is engraved into the surface of the security label they resist chemicals and cleaning materials.

Should anybody attempt to remove the asset label or switch the label onto some other equipment, the material will break into small pieces, thus announcing the fact that the label has been interfered with.

Use of these asset labels enables you to maintain a detailed register which enables anyone to instantly view which equipment is available, the expected return date and the condition before and after it has been loaned.
