TRACK HIGH-VALUE ITEMS AT ALL TIMES
It is very easy to lose track of expensive assets whether they’re within your organisation or currently on site at a client. Those assets can take many shapes and forms – plant and machinery, protective clothing, specialist test equipment and tools, or even mundane but pricy items such as vacuum cleaners. Our solution? Get the person responsible to accept the asset using the Barcoder 250 system. This system uses unique labels to identify each and every asset and this makes monitoring the location of all assets very straightforward and reliable. The Asset Management is integrated with the wider Barcoder 250 system so enabling an asset to be tracked from the time it is purchased and delivered until it is no longer required and sold or disposed of.
The Barcoder 250 Asset Management Module is an integral part of organisational operations:
- Tracking of each asset throughout the life of the equipment
- Easy recording & maintenance of the asset register.
- Unique identification of all assets using barcodes or RFID tags.
- Comprehensive reporting
- Integration with Sage 50 & 200 Accounts if required
- Compatible with Barcoder 250 hardware
The bigger picture is about joining the dots. As well as being sure where expensive kit is, you can use that information both within the context of stock checks and financial audits, given that the value of assets is either already known or can be researched. Time saved by doing such checks digitally, rather than requiring site visits, makes for cost savings and more opportunities to use the working week for improving systems and generating profit.
Use tamper-proof custom-designed labels to suit your brand and other requirements, and record an item’s arrival onsite. Each item gets a unique number, and you can give a shared code to equipment with multiple examples, such as radio phones, making it simple to see where given assets are whenever you need that knowledge.
New items can be scanned by the site manager on arrival using easily available and low cost Android or iOS devices. Date of scan may be used to allow the easy management of the asset should it be subject to periodic test schedules for example.
Tracking is only part of the module’s management function, and ensures equipment is in the loop regarding future situations such as valuation and moving items to other sites or into storage. It’s also possible to set up reports so you can note the location of all items in a particular class.

The app is Android and IOS compatible, and activates using a distinctive code.
