When Model and Serial Plates Are Not Necessary for Your Business

Model and Serial PlateThere are many reasons why companies need to have model and serial plates made for their business. The most common reason is to help make it easier for the company to keep track of all their products. These tags help businesses keep track of different kinds of products, whether these have been sold or not, whether these need repairs or not, and whether these need to be replaced or not.

Other reasons why these tags are necessary include troubleshooting, warranty requirements, and for branding purposes. Although when it comes to branding, a company can always choose to go with a tag that does not have any of the features that a model and serial plate has. This would mean that the company can do without using this kind of a tag and go with a simpler one like a decorative trim plate or a promotional plate, which can easily carry the company’s brand without having to carry any other information on it.

There are times however when a company does choose to use this kind of a tag for their products even when they have very few items that they need to keep track of, and that is because they simply want to be able to stay on top of their product inventory. Sometimes, these tags are also used in order to allow for easy troubleshooting and for making sure that the company only repairs or replaces products that are still within the warranty period, and the alphanumeric codes on these tags help businesses determine this.

So, when are these tags not really required of a business? Usually, if a company has products that do not need to be repaired or replaced, have items that do not have moving parts that need to be fixed, and have only one or two products that they are selling, these tags are not necessary. If you need to keep track of items for warranty purposes and you only have one or two product types, you might want to have warranty labels made for these instead.

You might also consider barcoded tags for such items or tags with QR codes, and have the people who purchase these tags scan these codes in order to register such products for warranty or guarantee purposes. Other reasons for not needing these tags include the kind of product that you have. Some products do not really need to have such tags on them, like clothing and the like, so these model and serial plates are not required for such items.
