TagMaster North America supports HID Corporate 1000 Program

Tacoma, Washington | November 2, 2009 - TagMaster North America, Inc., the leading provider of long-range and high-performance Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) systems for Automatic Vehicle Identification (AVI)announced today its support for HID Global’s popular Corporate 1000 Program.

As the trusted source for solutions for the delivery of secure identity, HID Global established the Corporate 1000 program to provide access control users with a unique 35-bit card data format developed and maintained specifically for each individual end-user organization. Customers aiming to standardize on a single card solution within their organization can now authorize TagMaster to purchase Corporate 1000 cards on their behalf from HID Global. The benefits of this program to TagMaster customers include enhanced card security, compatibility with standard HID access control readers, and assured availability of the unique card format over the long term.

The flexibility and ease of use of a dual short-range / long-range access card, while still compliant with the Corporate 1000 Program, is now attainable through TagMaster’s S1260 Combi Tag, a unique read-only, compact, semi-passive tag that combines long-range 2.45 GHz technology with HID proximity, eProx and iCLASS®.

Additionally, a newly designed TagMaster MarkTag MeM duo that supports the Corporate 1000 program, is also available. A dual access tag that operates with improved signal sensitivity and extended read range capabilities, mounts anywhere on the dashboard line-of-sight permitting and comes with a new rugged and ergonomically-friendly design, the MarkTag MeM duo is by far the most compact tag in the TagMaster family of tags.

To participate in the Corporate 1000 Program, end-users need to complete an HID Global Format Request and Authorization Form (designating TagMaster NA as their authorized reseller). Upon processing by HID, a unique Corporate 1000 Format number and facility code is established for the end-user, which TagMaster NA programs into the S1260 CombiTag and MarkTag MeM duo.
