Track Property With School Asset Labels
Tracking equipment is an ongoing challenge in any UK school -whatever the size or type, from nurseries to universities. Record-keeping can easily become overwhelming due to misplaced teaching and learning assets. This forces busy staff to waste precious time tracking down these valuable school assets, such as audio-visual devices, laboratory equipment, books or tablets. If the equipment can’t be found, many schools stretch their already tight budgets to unnecessarily purchase replacements because many assets, like microscopes, for example, are essential to the curriculum.
If equipment is moved between premises or taken off-site, tagging the items with your details and recording the asset number minimises the risk of loss – and increases the chances of recovery or a successful insurance claim.
With the ability to quickly view a database of your most valuable assets, you have the control to see when warranties run out, pat testing is required and/or when equipment has reached the end of it’s lifespan.
At Asset Labels for Schools, we manufacture the asset labels (sometimes called tags) which can help track and protect the equipment typically found in classrooms, science labs, libraries, cafeterias, and administrative offices. Applying them makes the tracking process more efficient by saving schools time and money. By adding a barcode label to each asset, this will confirm each asset is unique, making it so much easier to compile an asset inventory.The barcodes and QR codes can be scanned using smartphones, giving the user product information immediately. A simple scanner can also be used to scan assets in-and-out, similar to a library system. Adding logos, contact details, bar codes and individual numbering to assets and equipment allows teachers and administrators to loan or hire out valuable equipment to departments, classes and students – with the confidence that it will be returned.
