Digital Data Asset tracking
Digital Data Company Overview:
Today’s client is a leader in the global information services market, specializing in fraud prevention, data management, and many other solutions. The department I worked with was focused on receiving, storing, and disposing of digital data lockers from a wide variety of their customers.
Why Digital Data Asset Tracking is Needed:
Currently relying on Excel spreadsheets to track these sensitive items, the company’s growth and sheer number of incoming items had quickly outpaced their ability to effectively track and manage the relevant information about them. Each item needed to be uniquely tagged, stored, and disposed of after a set period of time, and deadlines were starting to fall through the cracks.
What Asset Tracking System can be used:
Our recommended solution for this client was the Wasp Mobile Asset software, with barcode scanning and label printing capabilities. Providing the ability to quickly print new tags as the assets arrived, scan them into the database, and key in their information and destruction date on the fly was critical to the client. The Mobile Asset software would now allow our client to track the items from the time they arrived, who they belonged to, where they had been stored, and would notify them in advance when it was time to dispose of the item. There would no longer be any need for guesswork, scanning through endless spreadsheets, or searching through the warehouse to find the right items. When presenting the software to the client it was clear the standout features for them were the ability to set an event for the item to be destroyed, as well as the ease of use for generating and printing barcode labels not only for the items, but for locations, and even their customers, allowing for further automation.
Digital Data Asset tracking Result:
Taking advantage of the key features of Wasp Mobile Asset will allow this client to achieve their goal of creating streamlined process of tracking their customers items from the moment they arrive until they are ultimately disposed of.

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.
For years we’ve been helping Global Shop Solutions customers automate their warehouses and manufacturing facilities with rugged barcode scanners, printers and media. Whether you need to scan a barcode on a clipboard from a few inches away or scan a pallet 50 feet away, we have you covered.
We’re excited to announce a new addition to the Global Shop Solutions certified family of barcode scanners (available July 18) which fits a special niche between the GSS-MOBILE-1 and GSS-MOBILE-2 scanners: The GSS-MOBILE-3.
GSS-MOBILE-3 Pistol-grip attachment, optional Docking station/charger, included 4-slot battery charger, optional
This rugged Android touch computer is designed for transportation, field mobility and government applications. It has the same form factor as the GSS-MOBILE-2 but it’s more rugged and has a barcode read range of up to 10 feet (compared to the GSS-MOBILE-2’s 15-inches-read-range). Plus, the GSS-MOBILE-3 features a pistol-grip attachment option (like the GSS-MOBILE-1). If you need to scan barcodes on shelving that’s just out of reach, this is a much better option than climbing a ladder with a GSS-MOBILE-2 and leaning toward the pallet.
Each GSS-MOBILE device is backed by our 3-year warranty and includes an extra battery and a charging and communication cradle. Additional accessories are available, too, including a 4-slot battery charger and a snap-on micro-USB cable.
Don’t Take Our Word for It—Try it Out! It’s not always clear which kind of barcode scanner is the best fit for your users and work environment. As an EMS Barcode Solutions partner, you don’t need to guess. We offer free demo equipment and 30-day trials for everything we sell. Not only that, but we provide you with various types of test barcode labels (with magnetic backings) that you can place in your work environment to give your employees a realistic feel for how everything works — without having to install any software or configure any equipment.

We had the pleasure of working with one of the largest midstream energy companies in North America today. They approached us seeking help in finding a better way to track their parts inventory across three divisions of the company housed under a single roof.
