Whether you are a small manufacturing firm just starting up or a huge company that has been around for decades, one thing is for sure. You will definitely need to have barcoded tags for your business. These tags are used to help companies not only keep track of inventory and assets, but also for other things, particularly if the company is into manufacturing and selling.

These tags are normally used by companies that sell merchandise and by those that manufacture items that they sell. These are usually used in sales and are scanned by POS machines when such a sale is concluded. This makes such an act easier and quicker for the retailer or even the wholesaler that sells these items.

While this is the most common use of tags with barcodes or UID codes, this is not the only use that these tags have. The fact that the codes on these tags enable companies to store lots of information on such a small space makes it very versatile and very useful. Here are a few other common uses that these coded tags have:

For asset tracking – yes, these coded plates and labels are used by businesses big and small to help them keep track of everything that they own. These tags, with the help of the codes on them, allow such entities to add more details about the items these are on without having to use too much space. This lets them add details regarding acquisition date, maintenance schedules, and the like.

For inventory tracking – did you know that when a retailer scans the barcode on an item that it also gives them information regarding the stocks of such an item? When a purchase is made, and the code is scanned, it is then added as one less item from the stock, which helps a company restock when the number of pieces for such merchandise runs low. It also helps companies that do not sell items to know when consumables in the business are running low and when they need to get more for the company’s use.

For product or item details – since these coded tags can help carry more information on such a small space, these can be used to store details about such items without it needing to use a large tag. A simple scan of the code will bring up details about the product or item easily with the use of a barcode scanner and a computer. This is useful for maintenance and repair needs as well as for asset tracking.

For accountability – when you use coded tags on your company assets, you can give employees full responsibility for whatever company assets they use or are assigned to use. If these assets are misused, stolen, broken down, or need replacement, the person the item is assigned to will need to be accountable for it.
