Permanent Electronic Bagtag update using NFC enabled smartphone -  by DS TAGS



With the BAGTAG, we faced the challenge to re imagine the traditional thermal paper bag tag for the aviation industry and come up with a design that is able to withstand the harsh conditions checked baggage have to endure, is simple to use anytime anywhere and still looks desirable.

The result is more than just an electronic bag tag device. It’s the world’s first secure end-to-end electronic bag tag solution, destined to replace the traditional paper bag tag.


Value Proposition

Convenient: check-in your luggage from anywhere and beat the queues in the terminal

Improved operational efficiency: 85% faster airport baggage drop-off process and supports irregular operations

Interoperable: can be used with any airline/cruise/high speed train company provided the transporting company is connected to our cloud-based platform

Secure End-to-End: can only be updated by its rightful owner and/or authorized family members

Sustainable: replaces the traditional paper luggage label, both the durable construction and the ultra low energy design have resulted in a device that is reusable up to at least 5 years.

Less lost luggage: improved read rates due to superior readability of the barcode and compatibility with RFID UHF based handling systems

No impact on terminal infrastructures: works with existing barcode based baggage handling systems and is fully compatible with RFID UHF based baggage handling systems.
