There are only 2 official asset tags used by the University. These are The University “owned asset” tag and the Alleasing “lease asset” tag.
Lenovo have become the first preferred supplier to place both “Lease Asset Tags” and “Owned Asset Tags” to University standard negotiated bundles. Computer will now have both types of asset tags applied at the Lenovo’s warehouse prior to delivery.
Be warned: Dell often place their own tags on machines for their internal tracking purposes. These tags look different from the official University and Alleasing tags, as shown above, and they should be removed.
- Dell tags are printed on white paper, University and Alleasing tags are printed silver waterproof plastic.
- Dell tags begin with the prefix USYD….., University Tags begin with the prefix A or B, Alleasing tags begin with the prefix of 007.
An example of the Dell tag is shown below.
