Inventory Just about Anything with Dynotag

How much stuff do you have? How much do you wish you had a running list of things? Would it not be great if you could write the usage instructions on every item you have? What if every asset had a log book users could write notes into?

If you are looking for a way not only to create an inventory list but also a way for you to take that list with you anywhere, share it with anyone you would like to, and add to or adjust the list at any time, then Dynotag can help. This simple to use tool is one of the easiest ways for you to get organized and improve communications. You can use it at home for any type of inventory you need to have. Use it at work or on the job to help you to stay organized.

How Do Dynotags Work?

A dynotag is a smart tag that you can attach to anything. When you scan the QR code, or visit the unique web address, you are able to access the related information on any web browser. What you will see when you do this with your computer or your smartphone is the information about that specific item in the list you’ve created. In short, you can store just about any type of information on ta dynotag smart tag. You have instant access to the information with a simple scan via your phone, using your favorite free QR scanner app, such as the neoreader. Dynotags are web based – so no special application is needed and any web browser can be used to manage and view the smart tags.

Dynotag Is the Perfect Small Inventory Tool!

Let’s say you are taking inventory of the supplies you have. You could write them on paper stickers but making changes is not easy to do. You could add this information to a computer file, but it is no longer as portable as you need it to be. With Dynotag, you get the flexibility you need no matter what you need to inventory, without confusing process and software. Here are some examples of use:

  • Use it to track the equipment in your office – put tips, instructions and maintenance log right on the tag
  • Use it to inventory materials for a construction project – put assembly and use instructions right on the tag
  • Use it to inventory and manage gym equipment – maintenance instructions / logs on the tag
  • Inventory your music equipment, with special maintenance tips right on the tag
  • Use it for departmental asset organization and tracking
  • Use it to manage your restaurant’s major equipment inventory – with instructions and log right on the tag.
  • Inventory your office supplies – put dynotags on the supply shelf outlining replenishment instructions
  • Use it in a museum setting to provide extensive information to visitors re. items displayed

So – dynotags allow you to provide quick access to your item information to anyone you want. As the owner you (and only you) can make changes as often as you need to and even from your smartphone. Others can view the information you update, viewing the latest information on the tag. It allows you to manage information over time and without having to reapply stickers and tags – one tag is used for the life of the item.

You can define groups and gather related items/tags together making it easy for you to manage. When you need to see all the data, you can even download your entire inventory as an Excel compatible spreadsheet.

Because dynotags are so easy to use, they can be one of the simplest ways for you to improve your company’s bottom line through better asset management without having to invest in complicated inventory management systems.

To make asset tracking stickers easy and economical in larger numbers, Dynotag offers the “bulk activated” business products – which come in the more economical “silver” level which has all the core capabilities needed for asset management – and can be activated in bulk – up to 36 stickers at a time – to make the process easier. Any silver level tags can be upgraded if needed to add even more capabilities (such as automatic access notification emails). Check them out under “business products” at the dynotag online store.

Moving / unpacking made easier with dynotags!

Moving can be a hassle. Packing all those boxes, labeling them, then moving them into your new place or into storage is very time consuming and confusing.

Dynotag is here to help! You can use our unique ready to use sticker sets to list the contents of the boxes and even upload a photo of the contents into the dynotag sticker.  Especially if you are moving long distance and have hired a professional mover, boxes can easily get shuffled and after a few weeks, it is tough to remember which box contains what.

Our Web/Location Enabled QR Smart stickers are maintenance free, waterproof/weatherproof, tough, come with permanent adhesive and are easy to apply. You get three 36-sticker block activated unique sticker sets. You activate each block once to add them to your account. You get 108 unique stickers enabling you to label not only boxes, but furniture and other household items for your move!

You are probably thinking you need to be tech savvy and this is a lot of work just to label some boxes. Not so! From personal experience I can tell you that moving is the worst! Packing up your life in boxes is easy. You feel accomplished when you are done packing and ready to go. The comes the hard part; unpacking! At that point – all the boxes look alike and it is frustrating to remember what is in which box. Labeling the boxes with dynotags is easy once you do the first couple boxes.

Once you activate your dynotags using the activation code included in the package, they become yours. As the owner, you can update tag contents any time over the web and even secure information using a password if you wish. Sign into your dynotag account to view detailed access records of your tag and even see the tag view accesses in your tag’s access log and on a map. Any device viewing the tag content is requested by Dynotag service to report its location. Smartphones have detailed awareness of their location at all times, with GPS assist and other location services. So if a box is misplaced, its dynotag can even help it to safely come back home!

Using dynotags can be a time saver and help keep your sanity during the move. Unpacking is stressful, but when you know exactly where everything is, you will be more in control and at ease.

Surfer Does Not Take Chances, Uses dynotag QR Code Smart Tags to Mark His Gear!

As evidenced by his video scrapbook, Don Ledford, a native of Seattle area has been an avid surfer for years.

When it’s calm, he’s on his SUP, when it’s windy, he cracks the Windsurf gear out. When the waves are promising, surfboards are retrieved from the big Sprinter van, which serves as a moving dedicated equipment storage for Ledford.

As much fun as water sports are, the sea (or lake) occasionally claims a toll by claiming equipment such as paddles, gloves, hats, even a surfboard on occasion.

“Given the considerable expense of the equipment and all the accessories, it would be awesome to get them back” says Ledford, who cannot remember the count of all the stuff he has lost over the years.

“Even if someone finds it, they don’t know who to call to come get it” he continued.

That is when tagging his equipment occurred to him. That way, at least when someone finds the missing glove, paddle or board,  they’ll be able to contact Don and arrange for the lost equipment to find its way back home.

However, what to tag the equipment with?

Almost all equipment used in watersports gets exposed to extreme conditions like sun, salt, abrasion. Things either wear off or just get eroded away.

That’s when Don decided to try Dynotag’s “Internet Enabled QR Code Smart Mini Tags”.

Upon receiving them Don activated the tags with his contact information then applied them to his valued equipment, using wowen nylon strings in most cases…

The minitag is easy to secure on the board...

Nice job attaching the tag. Visible yet out of the way…

“I like these little tags have a short web address for my info., as well as the QR Code” says Ledford. “Not everyone has a smartphone that can read QR Codes but pretty much everyone knows how to visit a web address” he added.  Ledford has a whole set of boards for all water sports imaginable, and he has tagged them all!. “It took just a few minutes to do them all” he says. Certainly a worthy investment for the peace of mind.

Nice board, now with a dynotag!
Another nice board with its new dynotag…

 

After several weeks of use, Don is pleased with the tags, which appear to take the abuse well.

We’ll see which one will last longer, the tags or the surfboards.   Stay tuned for an update in a few months!
