Accurately capturing and tracking data is not an option for the Department of Defense (DOD), Food and Drug Administration (FDA) or Veterans Affairs Administration (VA).
Federal, state and local organizations face many challenges including managing and maintaining assets critical to the everyday grind of getting things done effectively and efficiently. Mistakes can be time consuming, costly and in some instances even life threatening.
Accurately capturing and tracking data is not an option for the Department of Defense (DOD), Food and Drug Administration (FDA) or Veterans Affairs Administration (VA). Manual processing of information can prove to be labor intensive, time consuming and leave large margin for error. Is margin for error a risk you are willing to take when the FDA announces a food recall? Or what about ensuring VHA or deployed military personnel are not left without the tools essential to carry out their mission?
With limited resources and heavy workloads, doing it right the first time is imperative to government agencies. Reducing the human-error factor associated with manual data collection and distribution can be achieved with implementation of thermal barcode printers and labels. The automatic capture and tracking of information can help agencies attain efficiency goals within many government environments:
- Equipment tracking/asset management
- Labeling of patient records and wristbands
- Forensic evidence labeling
- Records management for Education/Libraries via check/out
- Labeling of student records
- Inspection stickers
- Labeling of medicines and foods
In addition, with advancements in technology, state legislatures are increasingly adapting variations of e-waste polices and disposal regulations. Any organization managing capital assets needs a plan to ensure state and federal compliance. These regulations are frequently audited prior to transferring or disposing used, damaged or surplus equipment and product components.
For federal and state operations world wide, utilization of thermal barcode printing solutions for automation of data collection and management can save time, money and even save lives!
