Most organisations, companies and institutions mark their assets by engraving directly on them. That’s ok and the cheapest way of identifying your assets. Besides, it’s convenient for small items like cutlery provided it’s professionally done and with the right tools. But the best and most modern way of monitoring, managing, and tracking your fixed and movable assets is by tagging. Goleza Designers produces custom aluminium asset tags in Uganda.
What Are Aluminium Asset Tags?
An asset tag is just a label, which you attach to a property to identify it from others. Assets are physical properties that are either fixed in nature like buildings and machinery or movables like furniture and equipment. Aluminium asset tags are therefore metallic labels, which you attach to both fixed and movable assets for purposes of identifying them, inventory control, tracking and management.
At Goleza Designers, we make our asset tags from two types of metals: DuraBlack and AlumaMark aluminium. These two metals produce high-quality, engraving results. While DuraBlack aluminium is suitable for both indoor and outdoor asset tags, AlumaMark is only ideal for indoor property tags.
Why Use Asset Tags Instead of Engraving Directly on the Property?
First, asset tags can accommodate any graphics. You can add any details you want to appear on them.
Secondly, our aluminium asset tags are suitable for automating your documentation and collecting information about asset utilisation, maintenance and repair tracking. They, therefore, enable organisations to effectively and accurately record and monitor their moveable assets as they move throughout an organisation.
Thirdly, aluminium asset tags act as a theft deterrent or prevention against property loss. Assets shared among departments often get lost easily and, sometimes, stolen. The use of asset tags with built-in security features help organisations to monitor and to have strict control over assets that are rarely ever in the same location. Additionally, they serve to deter the theft of high-value assets in your organisation.
Fourthly, you can add barcodes to your aluminium asset tags to speed up data entry and minimise errors.
Fifthly, aluminium asset tags look smart on the property. They are thin and because of that, they stick so well on the asset.
