Quite a few things. First and foremost, it helps you find a gage when you need to use it elsewhere or recall it for calibration.

Secondly, it helps create accountability, by having a user's name attached to the gage each time it is checked out. Now, when a gage is lost or destroyed, the person at fault can be identified.

Next, it creates a tracking system of which projects each gage was used, allowing for easy analysis of impact from an out of tolerance gage.

Finally, and most importantly, it allows for easy analysis of wear patterns. Simply track over time how many uses a gage has, on average, before it falls out of tolerance. This will allow you to become significantly more proactive about the money you are spending on your calibration program.
