Using pen and paper is a manual, time-consuming process that easily creates errors, may be illegible, is difficult to update, hard to manage and frequently lost or destroyed.
Excel spreadsheets are not specifically designed to manage the complexities of tracking and managing assets. Just like pen and paper is time-consuming, manual, and just as likely to create errors or omissions.
Special purpose barcode scanning equipment and specialized handheld data collection devices are expensive and requires time away from work on specialized training and setup and is usually based on cumbersome and dated handheld device technology.
While away from your desk, use your Android smartphone to scan barcode codes, checkout and check-in assets to personnel inside and outside of your organization and track the location of an asset while you are anywhere that has wireless coverage. As you relocate or deploy assets, everyone else in the organization has complete visibility as to the location of that asset with secure access from any standard web-browser.
Track where all of your equipment located by address, barcoded location tags and/or GPS coordinates. Use your Android SmartPhone to scan tools, equipment, location barcodes, employee/personnel barcoded badges. Physical asset data can be accessed from the web by those that you authorize.

Time is the most important resource that your business has. When not pressed for time, work is less stressful, and can be performed with a higher quality than when running behind schedule. Tool tracking provides knowledge of where all of your tools are, who has them and eliminates valuable time wasted looking for tools.
Reduce the cost of replacing missing or hoarded equipment. The Tool Management application ensures that no tools are left behind at a jobsite. When personnel are aware that tools are being tracked, less hoarding of tools and equipment takes place. Adhering to equipment maintenance schedules results in longer tool life.
There are two primary types of barcodes to consider, 1D and QR Codes. 1D or one dimensional codes, shown below, are the traditional barcodes that have been used on retail products for decades.
QR, Quick Response, Codes are a 2D (two dimensional) code, shown below, that is commonly associated with a means for scanning URLs from a smartphone or as a means to display product information or special event details in advertising campaigns.
QR Codes will always perform much better for smartphone and tablet barcode scanners. Smartphones that have cameras with auto-focus and flash will still perform well. Many tablets do not have these two features and QR codes will be the only viable option if your organization will use devices without autofocus and flash.
For either 1D traditional barcodes or QR Codes, you need to use sequentially numbered labels. You can purchase 1000 labels for as little as $60. Following are two examples but you can order sequential QR codes or sequential barcodes from any number of places.
