Asset Tracking Technology: You’ve Come a Long Way, Baby

Asset tracking technology has come a long way. As a practice, asset tracking started without much technology at all – using Excel spreadsheets that required manual entry. As employees moved throughout organizations and some left, reporting gaps, guesswork and mistakes were the inevitable results. Even when staff retention remained steady, asset tracking was easy to move to the back burner in the wake of more immediate needs. When it came time to report numbers for accounting and compliance purposes, these human errors and oversights could be costly.

Eventually, Wi-Fi asset tags came on the scene, each of them powered by batteries that burned out quickly and defeated the purpose. It was difficult for any organization to track their fixed assets when batteries were failing. Setting up such a system was an enormous task in terms of back-end integration, and the expense was prohibitive for many companies.

Tags and batteries became more efficient and less expensive over the years, and the integration simpler. Rather than respond reactively to technological advancements, however, Dallas-based Asset Panda has had an eye on the future – specifically, the Internet of Things. In that forthcoming reality, most of the objects in our everyday lives will be tagged, and many of them will communicate with one another to create a world driven by efficiency.
