Companies might not have the time or the resources to run an efficient lost-and-found program for items that people lost within their premises.
Can you come up with a way for companies or people to easily find their items instead of calling, emailing, or walking around to try to find your items?
I'm not thinking about Bluetooth trackers, because sometimes people also lose expensive clothing, jewelry, etc.

Apps to report and retrieve lost items, also company websites and social media

There are apps to report and retrieve lost items easier. They don't seem to be very popular, but they exist, here are a couple: PAAYA (the reviews are unfortunately very bad), Lifesaver - this one seems good, but has few users so far. There seems to be no truly popular app of that sort, maybe things will change in the future.
A simpler and more commonly used option is social media. Almost every company has its social media website and there is sometimes lost and found section or occasional lost and found reports in the general feed.

A branding app and a barcode printer

The oldest way to tackle this problem without tracking is branding. By branding,I mean you can label your property so that when someone else finds it, they will know it's yours. It also makes it easier to identify your own property when it gets mixed up with similar or identical objects. The simplest form is to write your name and number on most of your valuable, easy-to-lose, things.
The other way I am proposing is that one can use a barcode printer to mark their belongings such that when the barcode is scanned with a phone the barcode will lead them to a website where they can contact the owner via instant messaging until the lost item has been retrieved. An added advantage of this system is that lost objects can be retrieved without sharing contact details if you don't want to share them.
