Datatag to exhibit at Hillhead 2016
Datatag ID Ltd, the power behind the official CESAR security marking and registration scheme, have announced they will be exhibiting for the second time at the Hillhead exhibition after a successful show in 2014.
The three-day construction, quarrying and recycling show, to be held 28-30 June, provides a unique opportunity to see the latest construction equipment in the UK in a live quarry environment.
Datatag ID Ltd will be amongst 450 exhibitors, with a wider product range since their last attendance at Hillhead 2014. The Datatag stand will exhibit the official CESAR Scheme, the number one security deterrent for plant and agricultural equipment, VENOM to safeguard fuel and their latest innovation Micro-CESAR.
With criminals employing increasing levels of new technology and innovative techniques to attack valuable company assets within the construction, quarrying and utilities sectors it is getting harder for managers to protect company assets. Recently identified by leading insurers and the CITS board (Combined Industries theft solutions) as the latest trend in thefts is the theft of small tools, which includes small construction and landscaping equipment such as power tools, cut-off saws, hand-held hydraulic breakers and compaction plates.
As a response to this growing trend Datatag ID Ltd launched Micro-CESAR at the Combined Industries Theft Solutions conference (CITS) hosted at JCB’s world headquarters in November 2015. Like the official CESAR security marking and registration scheme for larger equipment, Micro-CESAR uses Datatag technology. This includes a unique RFID tag and a warning/registration label with an integrated QR code, which the company say will have the same effect that the CESAR Scheme has in deterring theft and assisting in recovery.
CESAR has contributed to a 70+% reduction in the theft of large construction equipment since is was launched in 2007. Micro-CESAR is expected to make a similar impact protecting small construction and landscaping equipment such as power tools, cut-off saws, hand-held hydraulic breakers and compaction plates.
As an added bonus to many companies the technology in the Micro-CESAR system can also be used as a stock-management tool, helping companies track tools in and out of jobs and allowing users to easily access on-line health and safety advice and user manuals through the unique QR code and mobile-enabled Micro CESAR website.
