What is Asset Tagging? 🏷️

Asset tagging is the process of affixing tags or labels to assets to identify each one individually and track data from real-time location to maintenance history. These tags can be assigned to both fixed and moveable assets that are spread across multiple sites and locations. Asset tagging will enable you to achieve a holistic view of your assets.

You can affix asset tags to each of your assets so that either:

  1. Your reporter staff can scan the asset tag with the FaultFixers Reporter App to log a maintenance request linked to that asset

  2. Your Maintenance teams can scan the asset tags with the FaultFixers Teams App to see the asset's details including serial numbers, warranty dates, service history and records

β›” What happens if my Asset Tag is already assigned to another asset (or Location/Building Tag)?

When you scan an Asset Tag, it may have already been assigned/linked to another asset.

This means that this Asset Tag/QR code is a duplicate - it's printed already and in-user elsewhere across your business (it could be another Asset, or a Location or Building Tag)

If this happens, you have several option:

Discard this Asset Tag + use another Asset Tag (Recommended)

  • We recommend discarding this Asset Tag and using another Asset Tag.

  • This is because this Asset Tag has already been printed by you and is a duplicate.

Un-assign the Asset Tag ready and reassign

  • When you Scan Tag > click "un-assign", and then follow the "How to Assign Asset Tags" steps above to reassign the Asset Tag to the desired asset.

  • This WILL result in the previously assigned Tag (which could have been an Asset Tag, or Building/Location reporter Tag becoming unassigned and no longer working β›”.

  • If you're unsure of what this will cause or need further support, please reach out to us and we'll be happy to provide some helpful guidance.
