Durable Asset Labels for Your Equipment, Utilities and Facilities
Tags and labels don’t get much attention from most business leaders, but a business without a well-planned marking and tagging system will incur high costs in terms of theft and fraud losses, regulatory compliance violations, product safety problems, worker safety claims and consumer liability settlements. When you buy asset tags to mark your property and products, you have an excellent opportunity to spread your company’s image with customized graphics that also convey the messages required for the tags. Durable asset labels are an integral part of an efficient inventory management and asset deployment system.
Your equipment yard or remote work site is an excellent place to use metal asset tags to streamline your operations. Properly tagged equipment and tools are less likely to walk away from your site, especially if you use passive RFID tags as part of a computer-controlled alarm and inventory control system to keep track of what arrives and what leaves your property. You can buy asset tags with destructible features that show evidence of tampering if anyone tries to remove or transfer the label, so you can protect your products from counterfeiting and other fraudulent activities.
Durable asset labels properly applied to facilities and utilities provide safety warnings, operational instructions, and identifying information for your workers and the general public. RFID capable markers can make pipeline and other utility inspections more efficient by providing data that is readable at a distance. Reflective high quality aerial markers make inspection of your installations by aircraft more efficient.

1) low-priced equipment and tags,
2) enhanced reliability and performance (up to 99.9% accurate at present);
3) the settlement of an international standard for UHF passive tags.
Cost has always been a curbing issue, but a Korean firm has promised that by the end of 2011 it will sell each passive RFID tags for only three US cents.
Generally, US Department of Defense was and still is the largest user of RFID tags. Smart tags are used to trace the containers of armed forces hardware and sometimes specific articles of hardware too. The aeronautics industry has also been utilizing them worldwide for a long time.
The newest industries that use the passive RFID tags are monetary services for IT asset tracking and health care.In 2010 more than 60% of the best medical device firms are using passive UHF RFID.
Businesses even, grocery stores without a reliable system to track their stock and know exactly what they have of everything things they sell are appropriate to hold additional stocks to make it sure that they can provide on their customers’ requirements.
If you can cut excess stock down by using better information, you can contribute to cash flow as it will: slim down investment, storing space, labor costs; and increase asset deployment, increase stock revenue, support faster billing cycles.
In short, the usage of passive RFID tags:
1] Stock control and item location in real time is made easier, which reduces product search time, cuts inventory levels and advances control of the industrial process. 2] Improves compliance and work-in-progress (WIP) efficiency and cost of the finished goods are reduced. 3] Enables the simultaneous monitoring of manufacture, order completion, and distribution measures and their effectiveness levels. 4] Boosts cost-effectively and ability to meet claim quickly and pull down inventory costs. 5] Lessens labor costs since manual procedures are not involved. 6] Improves order and transport accuracy ensuring orders are shipped complete, accurately, and timely, which in turn satisfies customers and repeats orders. 7] Offers really accurate simultaneous data capture using warehouse management systems (WMS) and enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems.
The way forward is to begin with the goods-in bay. Goods arrive with shipping labels, but with insufficient quality and information. For all goods received at this point, it is better to make a new identity badge. All the relevant information that you have on the items delivered can be put of passive RFID tags and attached to the pallet, the wreck or even the goods themselves.
Now these articles can be included to stock and the computer will always be able to reveal what the items are in the box, numbers and locations in the warehouse.
The easy procedure of creatingpassive RFID tags at the receiving bay and assigning it to the merchandises received can avoid waste of timeand money for checking up on stock levels and in overstocking.
