How many times have you asked yourself...

  • OK, who does this tool belong to?
  • My pet has a chip, but is there a faster way for neighbors to find out who the owner is?
  • What if I lose my keys? How can someone get them back to me?
  • How can I print a bunch of QR Barcodes I can stick on things with MY website on them?
  • How do I mark my assets with a barcode that gives my phone and email and address information?
  • We create a unique "tag" in our database in the cloud.
  • We print this tag on some "object" or make it available for electronic download.
  • You purchase the tag, in whatever format desired - luggage tag, dog tag, keychain tag, asset tag, peel-off sticker, downloadable image file. Whatever...
  • You log into your (free) TagItToMe.com web account and "register" that tag to your account. Or just scan it with our phone app to register it automatically.
  • You fill in the appropriate fields that belong to that tag, such as a "Public Message", "Private Info", "Redirector", etc.
  • Someone out there in the world scans that tag and they see your public message (contact information, resume, general notice, etc.) or get redirected to your shared document, web page, YouTube video, etc.
  • There are a couple of ways to "manage" your tags. First you have to register it so it gets tied to your user account. Next you need to enter a "message" into your new tag that you want anyone to see when they scan your tag. You do this by getting a free account, which gives you a direct way to securely and privately "own" your tag. We have to have some way for you to log into your management area with a username and password and our free user account is that method. You can use our web site to do this, or you can download our phone app to do it (available summer of 2013). Via our web site or our phone app, you can enter information into your tag(s) and manage them. You can enter a message the general public will see; you can enter private information no one but you can see; you can setup the tag to be a "redirector" that takes a scanner directly to any other site or web asset you want them to go to without ever stopping on the TagItToMe.com site at all.

About Tags

Tag It To Me is a cloud based system that allows YOU to enter anything you want into the guts of a tag someone can scan. You can change that information anytime, from anywhere, as many times as you want

We create an empty QR Tag and sell it to you. It can be in the form of a dog tag, a luggage tag, a metal stick-on asset tag, a sheet of peel-off stick-on labels, an electronically downloaded QR image, whatever. You "activate" your tag using a simple smart phone app or a (free) secure account on our web site, and fill in the message you want someone to see when they scan your tag. When someone scans your tag (say your pet's dog tag), TagItToMe.com will display the message or information you wanted the person to see (such as "If Fido is lost PLEASE call me at 555-1213!"). You can enter as much information in your tag message as you want (up to 32 pages of material!) plus links to any other material out on the web. And you can change your message and its content anytime as much as you want, which comes in really handy if, for instance, you move or get a new phone number. You don't need to replace the physical tag; just update the information IN the tag!

1) PUBLIC MSG is shown to anyone who scans your tag (Examples: "This luggage belongs to Jim at 555-1212" - "Reward for returning these keys! Call 555-1212!")

2) PRIVATE INFO is for your eyes only. You can log into your account to view your own private information stored in your tag(s). For example, an Asset Tag can store the S/N, price paid, date and location purchased, or any other private information you might need to keep for an asset or tool. The tag still has a "public" message that will display to anyone who scans it. So if you lose the asset, a finder can contact you, while your private information remains private, accessible only by you (and still available to you even if you've lost that asset!).

3) EMAIL ALERTS can be turned on to send you a msg anytime someone scans your tag.

4) GEO LOCATION can be turned on to capture the GPS coordinates of the scanner. Our mapping page shows the location of all your tag scans.

5) REDIRECT allows a tag to act as your very own re-director. Anyone scanning the tag will be taken immediately to your web page, your YouTube video, anything you want them to be directly sent to without seeing anything else.

6) RESET allows you to wipe all the information contained in a tag, including its ties to your account. This allows you to sell your asset (with tag attached) so the new owner can activate the tag and enter his own private/public information. Reset is also a shortcut way to wipe all data in a tag and start over to re-purpose an existing tag.

We are all concerned about data privacy, security, and reliability in this age of anonymous "cloud" computing. These are important issues when considering a cloud based system like Tag-It-To-Me. It is important to know that our parent company began building complex backend client/server database systems in 1984 for large international companies, many with exceedingly sensitive data security needs. As a natural progression of a company specializing in high-end client/server systems, we gravitated toward hosting and maintaining our clients' servers directly, and as a consequence built our own "private cloud" systems very early, even before the internet age. Over the years, we have grown our hosting center enormously as we added more and more multi-national companies to our roster. Thus, we have more experience with "cloud computing" than most, and importantly we do not farm out our hosting needs to huge faceless server farms. We are in total control of our own equipment, housed in one of the nation's premier dedicated hosting centers.

Our facility is a hardened Tier-1 Telco-Class Data Center with redundant systems, diverse fiber entrances, and isolated power distribution units. Our data center is staffed 24 hours a day and monitored by a comprehensive security system incorporating proximity card readers, attended sign in/out records, 2 factor access, and video surveillance and recording in all areas for strict security control. No public access is permitted under any circumstances. In fact, the elevator to our floor has no buttons and even our own staff must be accompanied by a guard with a special electronic "key" to access our own equipment. The data center is provided power from a Dual Independent Public Utility Distribution Grid, utilizes Enterprise Class N+1 Power Distribution Units, and Enterprise Class N+1 UPS systems with 2n+1 A/C and Inergen fire suppression. All our servers have unfettered access to the Internet through seven backbones, including UUNet OC3, Sprint OC3, ATT, ATT DS3, Digex DS3, Time Warner DS3, and Level 3 OC3.

In addition to the reliability of our physical plant and equipment, your data is stored in a proprietary format within a sophisticated software environment and resides on disk in an encrypted state. Our support staff have access to "reporting" type material only, in order to help our user base, while human access to the actual data environment is extremely limited and rare. The data itself is backed up redundantly in real time, and mirrored to an offsite geo-diverse facility as part of our catastrophic failure policy.

We take privacy, security, and reliability seriously. We are not a startup relying on third party "partners" to protect our systems or your data. We have the experience, background, and systems that we hope will allow you to sleep easy at night regardless of what you decide to store in your tags. Our software systems and hosting services have been serving clients for 30 years and will be serving Tag-It-To-Me clients for many more to come.

Ideas Galore!

Most pets already have tags mandated by some local authority with dates of last shots or even an implanted chip with more veterinary information. But it can be a real hassle for a good Samaritan to find an owner. Often the only solution is to take it to a local shelter and you might not be found for days. With our tags you can have a lot more information available immediately to anyone who scans that tag. You can list all the special care Fido needs; you list more than one phone or as much contact information you wish; you can promise a reward for speedy return. In short, you can list as much information about your pet as you want. And you can keep it up-to-date without having to change the tag. The physical tag stays in place; you just change the "data" that resides in our backend server that your tag "points" to.

Our tags are distinctive and readable by all cell phone scanners these days. AND they can be kept up-to-date easily when you change jobs or move or get a new phone number. How many times have you checked your luggage tag and found it was faded and unreadable or listed your old address and phone number? TagItToMe tags don't go out of date. If you do lose your luggage, you can check your tag information right on our website to make sure it is up to date; you can change the wording or reward information depending on what was in it; you can even track any scan locations if you had Geo Location turned on. AND our tags are distinctive enough that you can spot your checked luggage easily as it trundles down the checked baggage belt!

Buy a sheet of peel-off stick-on tags and apply them to all your tools, office equipment, household items, anything you want to keep track of or be able to prove belongs to you. You can put a public message anyone will see when they scan it, but you can also enter "private" information about your asset, such as S/N, date purchased, price paid, merchant info, warranty info. Whatever you might need to track for any and every valuable asset.

Download an electronic version of a TagItToMe tag and add it into the design of your business card. Typical business cards have room only for a little contact info; but our tag has room for an entire resume or a redirect to your web site! AND you can keep it up to date by simply logging into your account and modifying the data in your tag as often as you want, whenever you need to. Your tag QR image points to a record in our database that is controlled by you and accessible by you 24/7/365.

Download an electronic version of a TagItToMe tag and incorporate it into your resume to add a whole world of information that cannot be contained in a typical resume. Your QR Tag can add a complete web site, your YouTube channel, a Power Point presentation, or whatever you might come up with to flesh our your resume in ways a sheet of printed paper just cannot do!

OK, so week after week you have a new flyer printed and distributed to inform the public about the upcoming weekend events. But you could download one of our Tags electronically and then design ONE flyer that touts your venue with a message to the reader to scan your QR Tag for the very latest event schedule -- and you never have to reprint & distribute that flyer again! Just update the DATA the QR Tag points to. As often as you want. This way, your users just need to scan the same old flyer they walk by every day and they will immediately see the very latest up-to-date information about your upcoming events. Hot off the press and as current as you wish to keep it. Hourly, daily, weekly, monthly. Up to you.

Buy a sheet of inexpensive peel-off stick-on labels and place them on file folders and then enter all the information you need for staff to know precisely what is in that folder without having to stop and dig through it manually. Updating the folder information is as simple as clicking on a database record and modifying the "data" that QR points to when scanned. You can even export all your tags data to a spreadsheet so you can manage folder content in any way your office needs, without having to waste time rooting around in a filing cabinet!

Stick a TagItToMe QR Sticker onto anything you are about to lend to someone and fill out all the information each of you might want to know when it comes time to refresh everyone's memory about when it was loaned out, who loaned it to whom, when it was promised back... you name it. Whether it is a tool, a book, .... whatever. In the old days, it was easy to forget who you loaned that book to and might never see it again, but since you can check your tag content over the internet any time, you'll always know who you loaned it to and when. The physical object you loaned out might be "out of sight, out of mind", but the tag DATA you tied it to is always available.

Our tags contain the ability to "redirect" the scanner to any net address. This means there is no real limit on how they might be used. Sophisticated users could integrate our tags into an internal company database system that could automate any number of IT solutions. Our backend hosting and development partner has a lot of experience in the "database automation" realm and will be happy to talk to you about what might be possible with our tag technology!
