INVENTORY TRACKING OR ASSET TRACKING?
If you want to track "permanent" objects that a business uses internally, such as computers, tools, or educational material, you are looking at tracking your assets.
Although employees may use assets out of the office, an asset is belong to and must be returned to the company.
If you want to track "temporary" objects that are sold, distributed or consumed by a company, you are looking at tracking your inventory.
Your inventory can include retail items and office supplies.
