TRACKING OF ASSETS / INVENTORY ON-LINE: *

We consider “Assets” as "permanent" objects that a business uses internally, such as computers, tools, or educational material. Inventory tracking refers to objects that are sold, distributed, or otherwise consumed by a company or customer. These "temporary" objects include retail items and office supplies. EDC can track both for you, but requirement for both are very different in how they are placed and handled.  We know the difference. EDC uses an on-demand solution for tracking your assets and inventory.  For our customers it is easy to use and can be accessed from anywhere with an Internet connection.

Utilize existing OEM bar codes or apply your own.
