Physical assets whose location is widely distributed in a large geographic area benefit from a concise GLEAW Code. For record keeping a GLEAW Code is an excellent and regular / deterministic data entry that can be either a key or simple data entry field. Supporting that, they can also be easily transformed into common bar codes. In that GLEAW Codes are globally unique, systems using them can be globally deployed for standardized tools and training. This in turn supports global standardized asset tracking through the entire life cycle of that asset.
