Asset tagging with RFID, NFC or barcode labels

Improve inventory efficiency by tagging and tracking assets

Tagging equipment with RFID, NFC, QRcode or barcode tags enables efficient equipment inventory. Labels enable information update during equipment inspection and therefore ensures higher quality and timeliness of the data. In practice, labeling equipment means marking each item with a physical tag and each tag is linked to the digital counterpart in Trail system. During operations, the user can scan the label to view or modify item data in the system.

Key functionalities

  • Equipment inventory efficiency
  • Effortless update of asset data during equipment inspection

The timely information in Trail asset register is based on the completed inventory of the equipment. The inventory list is based on the labeled equipment. The currently available technologies for labeling are QR-code, barcode, RFID-tag, or NFC-tag. Each identifier tag has a counterpart in the format of a digital asset card in Trail system and all equipment information is stored there.

Depending on the type and conditions of usage, the requirements requiring labeling technology can vary. Therefore the choice of technology is considered case by case and depending on the need. The first labeling of equipment is executed as part of the implementation of Trail system. Adding equipment to the system, later on, is simple.

During operations, the label on the equipment is scanned either with Trail mobile application or a reader device. After scanning the label, the user can inspect the information on the asset card and register operations (such as defect reports or maintenance needs) for the asset. All actions can be recorded with Trail mobile application already during equipment inspection.

Inventory efficiency is one of the most significant advantages of labeled equipment. All labels in the inventory space are scanned and during the scanning Trail registers all identified assets from that space. The most significant efficiency improvements can be achieved through RFID-labeling technology. RFID-tags can be scanned from a distance up to 10 meters and therefore inventory efficiency improvements with RFID-tags are substantial.
