Serial Number Plates and the Information Found On Them

Serial Number PlatesSerial number plates, as the name implies, are plates that carry the serial numbers of the items these are on. While it may seem that this is the only thing such items are good for, these can actually serve you in more ways than one. To maximize the usage of these plates on your products, you will need to incorporate more than just the serial number of your products on them. You will need to add a whole lot more.

For some businesses, these metal nameplates carry more than just model and serial numbers, but also carry company details like addresses, phone numbers and even website URLs. This is because these tags are used to help people easily get in touch with these companies when they need help with repairs, part replacements, or when they need to order more of the same product. In a sense, these model and serial plates serve as business cards of sorts for these businesses as well.

Another purpose that these metal nameplates serve, when certain additions to what is on them is made, is for advertising and marketing needs. When these carry the company’s logo, brand name, or even mascot on them, and in rather pronounced sizes and colors, these serve as marketing and advertising mediums because people can see and familiarize themselves with these brand and company publicizing features. Having these on your plates can help increase your brand’s popularity and increase brand recognition among those who see this plate.

The information you put on these metal nameplates should help your company in more ways than one. For instance, if these plates carry information on voltage requirements, users of these products will know off-the-bat what voltage should be used when these items are operated. If they use the wrong voltage and damage the item, they are held accountable and not your company since it can be seen clearly that you were not remiss in letting them know of such a requirement.

Serial numbers and model information about these products also serve numerous purposes. One is for troubleshooting needs. When you contact a manufacturer for help regarding an item you need to have fixed, their customer service personnel will always ask about the model and serial number of your item. This is to determine what troubleshooting measures you need to enact on your specific item, plus to help them check if your warranty is still valid and can be used for free repairs and replacement parts.
