One of the first questions asked is how to print bar codes for assets. In line with what we consider a best practice of each asset uniquely identified, Panatrack recommends purchasing pre-printed serialized asset labels. When adding an asset, simply take the next label, affix it to the asset, and scan the Asset ID. 

By purchasing asset labels, you open yourself up to a wide variety of label materials. These materials are specifically designed to last as long as your asset. You can also include your company name for additional security measures. Example of asset materials include foil, metal, polycarbonate, polyester, and polypropylene. Some of these materials are ideal for conforming to curved or uneven surfaces. Asset labels are coated to protect from abrasions. Two-part labels offers a bar code label to affix to the asset and a corresponding tab with the corresponding ID number to affix to attach to paper records. There are also security labels that prevent unauthorized asset number transfer. If the label is tampered with, it breaks into small pieces. A tamper-evident label leave the word "void" behind if removal is attempted. 

Panatrack is a reseller of asset labels and can assist you in selecting the label material. If you prefer to print your own labels, Panatrack can assist in getting you set up for that as well. You will need bar code label design and printing software, a thermal-transfer bar code label printer, and label stock. Some of the label materials mentioned are also available as stock media for your own label printing purposes.
