What is an Asset Tracking Solution?

Fixed asset tracking made easy! Use BCU, Inc.'s custom, or "off the shelf" Asset Tracking Software, to track computers, equipment, furniture, vehicles and other valuable assets.

Barcode scanning reduces the time spent on physical audits and improves asset traceability. BCU, Inc.'s software solutions are easy to use, custom made for your application and will improve the bottom line of your business!

What tools do I need for an Asset Tracking Solution?

Mobile Computer - A key component in an asset tracking solution is a mobile computer. The mobile computer, whether it's some type of smartphone , rugged barcode reader, a tablet or a small laptop, allows the employee in the field to scan asset barcodes and record any number of data items including location, condition, age, etc.

Barcode Scanner - In situations where the asset can be brought to a laptop or host system, a non intelligent barcode scanner can be used to read or decode the data in a barcode. Barcode scanners can be either wired (tethered) or wireless.

Application Software - Asset tracking software is the software layer of an asset tracking solution. The software may reside on a host server and on a mobile computer. The exact solution will vary but will allow users to track a variety of information about assets.

Barcode Printer - A barcode printer provides employees the ability to produce barcode labels on demand or in batches. Most bar code printers today use thermal transfer technology so asset labels are durable and permanent.

Reporting Tools - Ultimately all of this information is sent to a central system. This central reporting system lets management see the details of the jobs, inventory and schedules for their operations. Information is power and the right system can certainly put the information within easy reach.

Barcode Labels/Tags - Some asset tracking applications can be achieved with out-sourced or preprinted barcode labels. BCU can print virtually any sequence or requirement.
