Asset Tracking For City Government
Asset Tracking For City Government
Tracking your assets for a City has shown to be very valuable for many reasons. The city government in League City, found on the south-side of Houston, Texas, got tired of the blame game on lost assets and spending too much time on asset audits. The employees of League City government needed a solution to help find their gear and track the gear exchanges when not in the office.
Why Asset Tracking Was Needed:
The first priority for the City were the audits. Missing items were causing a huge headache — with all the he-said, she-said of trying to find an item, tracking equipment and additional assets quickly became a nightmare.
The difficult task of actually finding out what may have happened to any missing equipment, especially when it was sent out with employees to off-site locations without necessary documentation — was a key source of frustration.
With Wasp Mobile Asset, we were able to set him up with several handheld mobile computers that could be placed in vehicles, this way, checking in and out items would be a breeze — even on the go. The scanners also made self-auditing incredibly easy and ready when external auditors come around. The full item history and employee histories, provided within the system, allowed for a high-level of accountability and removed the need for word-of-mouth asset tracking. In addition to the immediate benefits, the software recommended also includes the funding tracking needed and the depreciation classes the City was hoping to start incorporating into the system.
The Solution EMS Barcode Offered:
We got the City situated with the Professional version of the software and sent out several handheld mobile computers. The programs included e-mail alerts for equipment due dates, providing early status updates of when items are due. With the solution implemented, the employees at the City were very happy to finally have the comprehensive tracking they always envisioned. The City is now able to avoid time-consuming and highly stressful audits as they previously experienced.
Once your business finds a suitable asset tracker, it makes the day-to-day tasks easier. With the right solution, executing inventory audits are less stressful on the company — you can check your asset status anywhere, from a mobile or desktop device. Provide a system that lasts: you can implement a long-term software that both you and your employees can easily work with.

We have always had tremendous success in working with fire departments across the United States. It was a pleasure to have the opportunity to work with another fire department today with this client, who approached us looking for a better way to track equipment, maintenance, and record items lost or damaged in fires.
A large veterinary hospital in Texas, with three locations in Houston and one in San Antonio, was looking for an inventory savior to help monitor their fluctuating inventory levels. The hospital spends time providing care for animals in emergency situations, therefore, lacked the time to properly check in and out used items. With this dilemma, the clinic managers reached out to EMS Barcode to figure out a fitting inventory-solution, to ensure enough equipment was available and the clinic stock levels are within range.
