Barcodes have never been easier to add to you asset label or asset tag. Even if you do not have a bar-code system now, we recommend that you use barcodes for your asset labels. It can be exceedingly expensive to retrofit all of your asset and equipment labels and there is no cost to add this feature to your asset labels at the outset. Barcodes simplify identification and provide a simple, accurate and cost effective approach for identifying a unique number.
Barcodes streamline identification. The black and white bars that you see at the bottom of certain designs represent a unique identification for that component. The barcodes provide a simple, accurate and cost effective approach for identifying a unique number by using a bar-code scanner. Its low susceptibility to errors makes barcodes ideal for quick inventory of your assets. Again, the cost of adding a barcode to your asset tag is minimal, but the benefits are potentially large.
Note that we print black barcodes on a silver or white background. Although it is possible to create barcodes in reverse on a variety of colors, many have found lower read rates. Contrast, greater distinction between the small and large bars, plus good spacing on either side of the bar-codes are important factors in accurate first-time read rates for your asset tags.
