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.

Over the last few decades the education sector has seen many technological improvements; with in-class computers, laptops and tablets, some could argue these additions have improved a student’s learning and productivity. It is safe to say when schools lose integral instruments and tools for learning classroom routines could change significantly; while administratively, lost assets can mean a tighter budget for the school.

One of the many reasons I enjoy and believe in what we do at EMS Barcode Solutions is the sheer number of applications where asset and inventory tracking applies. Just about every company that exists has either got internal inventory, valuable assets to track, or both. Our client today was a fellow software company in need of tracking their IT equipment, office furniture, and anything that gets assigned to their workers.
