The Secrets Behind Successful Tagging!

2 min

The key to asset tracking success is to get those tags on the tools and the data entered into the system, fast. 

Here’s how:

Choose the Right Tags 

Choosing the right tag material for the right work environment is key to tagging success. 

While using a poly label on equipment that’s kept outdoors may save you money in the short term, it’s a false economy. 

In fact, you’ll soon find yourself ordering rugged metal tags and reapplying tags to assets all over again. 

In terms of time and people-power used, it’s a loss and it puts your asset-tracking project back a month, as well. 

Instead, order the right tag material for your project from the outset and get yourself and your project off to a great start!

Many Hands Make Tagging Light Work

Tagging assets and entering info into the asset management software is not everyone’s cup of tea! 

However, if you ask your entire team to come in one Saturday morning or stay late one evening, you can mete out 50 assets a person and get those assets tagged in a single sitting. 

The win? You’ll have your asset tracking system up and running fast and that makes life easier for everyone at work. 

And because each person has helped tag the assets, you’ll notice how much more invested your team is in using the solution, too. 

Pick Your Project Lead Well

Some people take the job of setting up a new asset tracking solution, not because they wanted the project, but because it landed in their lap like the quintessential hot potato. 

However, to hand this project over to the most junior member of staff or to someone inexperienced in setting up new software or training staff is a pathway to failure. 

Ensuring asset tracking success requires that the solution is initially set up well. 

And getting those tags on those tools and the asset information into the system requires the right person. 

So study your team’s individual strengths and ideally pick a person for the project who is interested in software and who is also passionate about streamlining business processes. 

Then invite them to take the lead. 

Once you’ve picked your person and they’ve agreed, empower them to make decisions and enable them to make asset tracking in your business a go!

Use the Resources

Until a person starts the tagging process, it’s hard to know what questions will arise and that’s okay. 

A system like GoCodes comes with an array of user-friendly resources—from easy-to-use customer tutorial videos, to short-read training guides, to tech support and chat, to email and Zoom. 

So if you or your project lead aren’t sure of the next step, or require a little reassurance that you’re on track, simply check out the customer support toolbox or call support and make use of the resources. 

After all, it’s a fundamental truth that we all need a little help, sometimes!
