Organizations are constantly looking for ways to lower overhead by improving efficiency. More often than not, they find the answer they need in technology.
Nowhere is that technology more valuable than when it comes to managing company assets. Savvy operators are requiring regular and complete physical inventory of their assets to control costs. Performing a manual physical inventory is a labor-intensive, error-prone undertaking. Keeping records of hundreds, often thousands of owned and leased assets can pose a logistical nightmare. Masses of data are useless if the information cannot be easily searched, sorted, and rearranged.
Barcode technology has long been recognized as the quickest, most accurate and most efficient method of tracking inventory records, and capital assets. That benefits your bottom line, because the more you know, the more you can manage. Once each item in your asset inventory is labeled with a barcoded asset label, taking inventory is easy using a portable barcode scanner.
First, scan the room or area ID, then each labeled asset. Simply repeat the process until all the rooms and areas have been scanned, and then upload the information into a central data location. Utilizing systems such as this will allow you to assign a unique number to each scanned item, along with the common descriptive information. Assets of different types and retention schedules can be tracked simultaneously – with ease and accuracy. Everything you need to know about any given asset at any given time is at your fingertips. That is a solution that will pay for itself through improved efficiency across the board.

BookMate is a system consisting of a computer powered kiosk which has a touch screen, barcode reader and RFID Reader. BookMate plugs into your network and interfaces with your existing library system. Books are checked in and out just like they were scanned with a barcode scanner, only faster and by your students, not the librarian.
Each book is labeled with an RFID label inside the cover which has the barcode number encoded in it. When the book is “read” by the RFID reader, it matches the barcode and with the BookMate software, it checks out the book to the proper student, just as if the barcode was scanned on your existing library system.
