So what’s the buzz about Asset Panda’s barcode equipment? Well, the buzz is that there is no barcode equipment! I know that has you now a bit confused – so let’s look at what barcode equipment can do for your business and the benefits of Asset Panda’s barcode feature.
Time and Cost Savings
Barcode scanners have come a long way. There is no longer a need for companies to order expensive, handheld scanners that are easily lost or broken. Today’s barcode equipment is fully functional to be used right from mobile devices like smartphones and tablets that employees use daily out in the field. With one simple click and capture of a barcode, scanners can record all of the necessary and most up-to-date data on an asset for its entire lifecycle.
Real-Time Data Anytime, Anywhere
Another feature that the handheld scanners aren’t able to duplicate is the ability to use mobile apps to send data to asset tracking and management software. This allows all eligible users to access and maintain the data anytime, from anywhere, 24/7. Now, employees have relevant data about an asset including where it is, who has it, the check in/check out status, and a complete maintenance history. It’s all in the palm of your hand whenever you need it.
Convenience is one of the most appreciated features with today’s barcode equipment. Several asset tracking software programs have affiliated Android and/or iOS apps that include built-in barcode scanners, so there’s simply no need to purchase separate handheld scanners. That’s a huge cost savings in and of itself. But be sure that you check the particular program for hidden costs, such as subscriptions and other fees that may not be obvious and can be a not so pleasant surprise. And also be aware of how much data your program can actually hold. While it’s convenient to have these features, if they aren’t working with you in the way you need them to be, then the convenience factor is null and void.
Eliminates Inaccurate Data
Inaccurate data can be a complete hassle. With barcode equipment, you virtually eliminate the opportunity for inaccurate data and guesswork. The use of barcodes and scanners make it easy to access and transfer the right data by reducing the number of errors that come with manual data entry. Plus, if your asset track
