When equipment goes missing or is lost, it’s more than an inconvenience. Time is lost when workers must spend hours searching for the missing items; replacement costs may not be in this year’s budget; and productivity may suffer without needed tools for a job. With tools and equipment representing a major investment for companies, it makes sense to invest in a solution for tracking those valuable items.
Tracking software and QR code inventory tags can help prevent loss and damage to company equipment and help reduce inefficiencies. Check-in and check-out solutions using asset management software allow companies to track items to know when items are taken or returned, by whom, and follow maintenance schedules to know when an item was repaired or is due for maintenance.
One highly adaptable solution is GoCodes, a cloud-based technology and asset management software with durable inventory tags. Because the system is cloud-based, it’s easy to get up and running and your staff will be able to use their smartphones to check equipment in or out. A variety of devices will be able to access and transmit information to the system’s database. For example, users can take and upload pictures of equipment to provide information about its condition. Text messages and email alerts can be used for convenient reminders of when items are due back to the company.
Wouldn’t it be nice to know where your tools and equipment are – especially when a deadline depends on them?
