Jackson Welding and Gas Products started unique cylinder tracking on June 27, 2004. We partnered with a software company called TrackAbout to provide the software, hardware and technical support for this project.
Unique cylinder tracking means that all compressed gas tanks larger than 80 cubic feet in volume is barcoded. This barcode is then cross referenced to the serial number stamped into the tank. Portable handhelds are carried by all our drivers and warehouse personnel and are used to scan in the barcodes along with our shipping document. This helps to ensure that we are billing accurately and returning empty cylinders to the correct customers.
Any customer can request that they have access to their specific account information. This can than be referenced online with a username and password.
