Keeping an inventory, tagging and tracking assets from the cradle to the grave is not easy! Lauren Graviet of Limestone County explains how they keep up with their inventory with the help of BOSS Solutions.
"Limestone County, AL has been a BOSS customer for more than five years, and as such, have been very satisfied with their products and customer service. Over the past year we have begun the process of implementing the BOSS Asset Management System. We have found it extremely helpful in keeping up with our inventory, which in turn assists with maintenance renewals, support contracts, and product life-cycle.
We have equipment in various locations throughout our county, so it is crucial that we have an effective system in place to keep up with the equipment. We began using the asset tags recommended by BOSS. They are small and have a QR code for easier scanning. When we receive a new piece of equipment we immediately assign it an asset tag. Once the tag is assigned to the equipment we tape it to the box, so that when the equipment is removed from the packaging for installation, it can immediately be tagged.
One of our main concerns was the tagging of equipment that was currently on location. To efficiently tag every piece of equipment, we decided to give our technicians a few asset tags to take with them when they went to a location. They could simply add the tag to the equipment, scan the QR code, and assign it to the correct department. Tagging every piece of equipment is still a work in progress, but we have found this to be the best way to ensure everything is tagged correctly.
Overall, we have been very satisfied with the Asset Management System. The asset tags are small and stay on the equipment very well. The tags are easy to scan, as this is performed by using either an Apple or Android device, such as a Smart Phone or tablet. I highly recommend the BOSS Asset Management and Tagging System to keep up with your companies growing inventory."
