Today we are all becoming more aware of the necessity for security in just about everything that we do, the same applies in the world of business. It has been known for assets to “disappear” or it could be that they have simply been misplaced. This can be a primary reason why companies are increasingly turning to security labels.
It is not always necessary to over laminate a label, but in certain circumstances it can be a tremendous benefit and save time and money for a company. In the time when the barcode was first introduced these labels were only available in a paper format, the result was that they could and often did disintegrate to the point that they became unreadable.
Retailers do not live in a perfect world they have to ensure that the products which they are selling always remain pristine and in tip top condition, irrespective of the temperatures that these may encounter during transit or storage and display.
Perhaps the most difficult situation has to be products that are designed for the deep freeze; the label always has to remain firmly attached to the product and also to be just as readable as it was when attached to the goods.
A well run warehouse is the heart of a well-run business and unless items can be found quickly and easily, valuable company time can be needlessly spent trying to find an item for a customer, or to re-stock shelves. Some of the types of warehouse label are illustrated here and much will depend upon the type of warehousing situation which is relevant for your particular business.
We are all human and as such it is inevitably that we can, on occasions, make a mistake or forget to do something from time to time. This applies to the head of the company as well as the newly recruited assistant.
If there was one area of business which could claim to be the king of lost £billions, it has to be the retail industry, supermarkets, clothing, electrical, it is not confined to a single sector. Shoplifting is an area which retailers have struggled with since people set up stalls to sell merchandise. Many ways have been tried to combat this theft, some quite effective, others not so. However, one which many retailers swear by is the security tags which have sensors that trigger an alert when someone tries to remove the item from a store without paying.
Our vinyl stickers have been use on a multitude of items, for example we have supplied them for wine bottles and as security labels, increasingly they are seen on pharmaceutical products, many items of food packaging including freezer packs where they have to endure extremely low temperatures of minus 20 centigrade.
Assets are by and large numbered in most commercial or industrial premises in order that the company can keep a track of the asset. However, there are a few other methods which can be used instead of numbering to increase business efficiency when stocktaking and equipment tracking.
The traditional and at the time the best way of keeping a record of the items that your business owned, was to number all of these and keep an asset register so that each asset could be tracked. However, with advances in technology this simple numbering process has now moved into the 21st century.
With just about everything that you can imagine today having a barcode on the label, this being the easy way of product identification and used by retailers as a way to price items and keep stock records. The majority are printed onto the product labels as it is being made. However it is possible that they can be added at a later stage through a label which can be printed onto an adhesive label and then this label stuck onto a product or a component.
Asset tags are usually used by institutions and businesses for property identification, necessary to ensure that they are properly maintained and also to prevent loss of assets due to theft. Using asset tags indicates ownership on your assets and using asset tags at places like shops and warehouses can be very helpful for asset and inventory management.
