Service tags are assigned to each Dell PC and provide a means of tracking computers by a unique identifier. If the motherboard in a Latitude D610 is changed, the service tag number will be reset in the computer's BIOS. Without a service tag number, tracking machines across a company with asset tracking software becomes much more difficult. Resetting the service tag number can be easily accomplished and increase the efficiency of an IT tracking system.
