Whether computers, tools, office supplies, manufacturing components, or machines, fixed assets are a part of day-to-day business operations across almost every industry. Yet, manual inventory counts are complex and tedious, even if they are only performed once or twice a year. And, it’s difficult for enterprises to effectively track these items throughout their lifecycle. For assets that move outside of the organization, the task is even harder.
Barcoding provides the technology needed to simplify the entire asset tracking process.
An asset management solution that uses barcodes, RFID tags, or even Bluetooth Low-energy (BLE) beacons is able to collect accurate data, give you better control over your assets, and help you make better business decisions that positively impact your revenue.
Barcoding offers the software, hardware and systems integration to get you started for almost any type of environment.
Barcoding uses BLE to turn physical assets into sensors that provide enterprises with near real-time physical inventory visibility.
In combination with software, the BLE beacons allow users to continuously and accurately track information about an asset’s presence, temperature and movement.
Once placed on tracked assets, the beacons communicate data every two seconds to smartphones over 150 feet away, even when inside a vehicle or container. From the mobile application, users can change an asset’s “state,” such as “en route” to “on site.” The beacon’s LED indicates this status to assist in asset identification.
Data transmitted from the beacon includes asset ID, signal strength, battery life, location, LED state, maximum/minimum/current temperature and more. Users can view this information from the mobile app’s dashboard and even set up email alerts based on threshold exceptions.
Beacons come with serialized barcode labels to enable quick association with assets, and are powered by a button cell with a battery life of up to five years.
Barcoding Inc. recommends selecting RFID as a solution only when its capabilities provide an immediate or projected future benefit to a process that makes it more effective than choosing another technology. Learn this and more best practices with this FREE whitepaper.
