tracking marketing display board assets using barcodesManaging asset tracking of display boards in marketing is challenging as locations and types are wide ranging. Often, marketing display is on different geographical locations and could also be in multiple countries across the world!

Asset tracking of display boards becomes very difficult when you must depend on manual reporting and guesses as to the location. Retrieving information on where each display board is located, their usage, pricing and so on is challenging particularly when they are being moved across different regions globally.

A Quick Response or QR code that encodes wide range of information that is easily transferred to the smart-phone is the most ideal solution for asset tracking of display boards. QR codes can not only be used to track display boards but also can be leveraged to track the number of views each display board has had. When customers scan the QR codes, they can be directed to websites for more engagement or promotional activities.

Marketing professionals also get to know how many people viewed or engaged with the display boards and how effective the marketing material was!
