Tip : Dymo LabelManager for Asset Tracking
Some organizations have a very complex Asset tracking system. At the other extreme, some companies choose not to formally track any assets - but they may simply label their assets (everything from Inventory, IT Assets, Tools and Equipment). In either case, a user-friendly device that can print text, and most importantly, barcodes, is a must. Dymo has a number of such solutions. You can use any of the Dymo LabelManager label makers for creating Asset Tracking labels, but in our experience a label maker that prints on at least 3/4" wide label tape is a more suitable option for this purpose.
Dymo LabelManagers are perfect for Asset tracking labels because they can print out text and barcodes on a highly durable label material (resistant to heat, UV and water). Plus there's a wide range of colors and sizes available, so you can customize your Asset tracking based on exactly what type/kind of item you are labelling. For instance, IT Assets may be labelled with white labels, Tools labelled with Yellow labels, Furniture with clear labels.....
Our pick of the Dymo range (for Asset labels) is as follows:
- DYMO LabelManager 420P Label Maker (1768815) - handheld or PC/Mac attached label maker, prints on 1/4", 3/8", 1/2" and 3/4" D1 labels
- DYMO LabelManager 500TS Label Maker (1790417) - desktop or PC/Mac attached label maker, prints on 1/4", 3/8", 1/2", 3/4" and 1" D1 labels
- DYMO MobileLabeler with Bluetooth (1982171) - Wireless or PC/Mac attached label maker, prints on 1/4", 3/8", 1/2", 3/4" and 1" D1 labels
All 3 of these models print on the larger 3/4" wide tape giving you sufficient space for a barcode and text (the 500TS and PnP also print on 1" tape giving more room again). Additionally, all 3 models are PC/Mac connectable so you can actually design the labels on your computer using Dymo's free label software (DLS). The 420P and 500TS enable you to create labels directly on the device which is handy when you want label assets on-the-fly.
Dymo LabelManager label makers use the Dymo D1 Label system. Within this range of labels are more than 40 diferent size and color combinations. As previously mentioned, the labels are made from a durable polyester/plastic material and the adhesive is very straong. If you require something a little more permanent, Dymo offer that too - Dymo D1 Permanent Labels
