Hr said the facilities asset tagging capabilities, which can provide partners with add-on services revenue.

“Almost every piece of equipment sold to large organisations needs to be asset-tagged and we can provide a complete service”, he added.

“We have six different asset tag printers. It’s inexpensive, reliable and effective – and a great way for our customers to add value and boost services revenues.”
