TagMaster Conducts Contractor Audits for Logistical Command Center Through New Construction Site Installation

TagMaster RFID Readers exceed tracking and access needs for demanding construction site by verifying and recording personnel credentials, managing accounts payable, and doing so with 100% accuracy and reliability.


TACOMA, WA | July 30th, 2015 - TagMaster North America's RFID system was selected to help management conduct contractor audits in real time for a demanding construction site in West Virginia. The company is a premier general contractor and has provided their recent construction site with a turnkey solution by installing TagMaster's LR-3 readers and Work FLO - Materials Management software. TagMaster's long-range Microwave readers and embedded software offered site supervisors accurate vendor auditing transparency and efficiency in a simplified, all-encompassing system.

Site managers needed to field numerous subcontractors and vendors accessing the site with essential materials. The company had previously deployed another RFID system that was functionally limited and unable to perform consistently and accurately, which disrupted daily operations and hindered vendor management and material control.

TagMaster's LR-3 readers, coupled with the MarkTag MeM, provided 100% tag read accuracy during all hours of operation. ACTS provided an embedded access control solution with real-time updates and credential auditing. As this information is accessible through their network via web interface and any authorized connected device, no additional software or hardware was required.

Each vendor/subcontractor was issued a tag with a unique 8-digit ID code, facilitating verifiable audit tracking for all transports to the site. Vendors/subcontractors can submit their charges for services and tag information is verified through the database, eliminating errors in billing and payables.

Management saw an immediate return on the investment and, as the system is redeployable, they now have accurate logistical control and awareness for future projects as well.

Tacoma, WA | April 9, 2015 — TagMaster North America's RFID system for vehicle access has been chosen to expedite daily life at Colonial Heritage, a premier residential community for active adults in Williamsburg, Virginia.

Mid-Atlantic Entry Systems, a premier supplier of automated gates specializing in access control integration, has provided residents with a reliable system that keeps up with busy lifestyles by installing TagMaster's UHF XT-3 Readers

Management at Colonial Heritage found themselves overwhelmed with resident complaints about inconsistent tag reads from the previous access control system. They were adamant that they require a system offering reliability, not another terrible experience. Residents desired hands-free access control with extended read ranges for smooth access without slowing down.

TagMaster's long-range UHF readers integrated with Linear’s AM3Plus Controller to offer a unified solution allowing community residents speedy access to the amenities and outdoor activities awaiting them.

"The equipment is easy to install, read range is exceptional. TagMaster technical support was timely and helpful during installation," said Tim Morgan, Vice President of Mid-Atlantic Entry Systems. "Our customer is very pleased with the consistency and read range of the equipment. Mid-Atlantic Entry Systems is looking forward to our next project with TagMaster."

President of TagMaster North America, Ali Khaksar, said "I'm confident that our expanding series of UHF products will unlock a variety of opportunities and I'm enthusiastic for those applications to explore our RFID offering."

T2 Systems Installs 154 TagMaster Readers for Duke University Parking

TagMaster AVI readers integrated into the T2 Systems parking management solution at Duke

Tacoma, WA | February 12, 2015 — TagMaster North America, Inc., the leading provider of long-range, high performance Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) systems for Automatic Vehicle Identification (AVI), was installed at Duke University in Durham, North Carolina.

T2 Systems, a parking solutions supplier, provided the University with a comprehensive and campus-wide parking system called T2 Flex that manages parking access and revenue control, permits, enforcement, event parking, and TagMaster’s hands-free access control system (model: XT-3).

One-hundred fifty-four (154) TagMaster long-range UHF readers were integrated into T2's unified solution to allow for quick, hands-free vehicle access for students, faculty and staff at more than 50 University parking areas. Drivers with these AVI tags no longer have to stop their vehicles in order to use a proximity tag or keypad. The long-range RFID reader identifies the vehicle's AVI tag as it approaches a gate and T2 Flex verifies the identity, triggering a gate to open for valid tags and denying access to anyone not permitted to park in that lot or garage.

By gathering accurate usage data in the University lots, Parking and Transportation Services are better able to allocate University resources to implement future development and parking options.

T2 Systems is a technology-focused parking systems provider with deep roots in the evolving parking industry. This commitment is evident in T2’s quality products and services, thought leadership and strong customer relationships. The company’s unified parking management and payment solutions provided under the T2 and Digital brands are in use by nearly 1,000 organizations across the US and Canada including universities, cities, towns, hospitals and parking operators.

DoorKing and TagMaster NA Provide Access Solution for Cal Stripe

TagMaster AVI products and DoorKing Access Controllers allow for hands-free truck access.

TagMaster North America, Inc., the leading provider of long-range and high-performance Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) systems for Automatic Vehicle Identification (AVI), was installed at the Cal Stripe maintenance yard in Colton, CA.

Cal Stripe, one of the line-painting contracts for the California Department of Transportation (CalTrans), originally used manually operated gates that required truck drivers to get out of their vehicles and open the gates themselves. 

Rising Star Industries installed the solution using LR-6 PRO readers, utilizing TagMaster’s long-range read lobes to open the DoorKing 9000 slide gates for the work trucks as soon as they are within range.  Tamper Evident (TpE) S1281 tags were installed on the windshield of maintenance and work vehicles to allow access 24 hours a day and select employees also have
