Convertible Smart Tags: Another first from Dynotag®

The most versatile Smart Luggage Tags in the world are here!

When Dynotag® Smart Tags were first offered a couple years ago, they came in a single style: Laminated synthetic material in white. Once they became the best selling Smart Tags of their kind, we expanded our offerings to include a variety of  new styles and sizes to meet our customers’ needs.

We always seek input from our customers – and many of you asked us for a larger metal tag, still with all the capabilities of a dynotag but a able to accommodate a business card when needed – and you wanted them in a variety of colors to be more visible…

And now, we are introducing another first: Convertible Luggage Tags!

We call them “Convertible” because the same tag can be used in a variety of ways.

  • They are ready to use as soon as you receive them after a simple activation!
  •  If you wish, you can flip the card insert and write your contact information – just like an old fashioned luggage tag (comes in handy if you are traveling to a remote island with no Iternet!)
  • Or, you can insert your business card, logo or favorite photo to display on the “window” side of the tag. The back of the tag can still have the dynotag information – or you can flip that to expose a clean blank metal.

We made then from tough aluminum in variety of eye-catching colors, so you can find one that will show well with your luggage, briefcase or bag.

A tough, braided steel wire loop is included with each tag for secure attachment to your property. A drop of glue in the screw barrel makes the loop closure permanent!

Now available in Ruby Red, Cool Silver, Emerald Green, Sapphire Blue, Electric Orange, and Midnight Black!

Moving / unpacking made easier with dynotags!

Moving can be a hassle. Packing all those boxes, labeling them, then moving them into your new place or into storage is very time consuming and confusing.

Dynotag is here to help! You can use our unique ready to use sticker sets to list the contents of the boxes and even upload a photo of the contents into the dynotag sticker.  Especially if you are moving long distance and have hired a professional mover, boxes can easily get shuffled and after a few weeks, it is tough to remember which box contains what.

Our Web/Location Enabled QR Smart stickers are maintenance free, waterproof/weatherproof, tough, come with permanent adhesive and are easy to apply. You get three 36-sticker block activated unique sticker sets. You activate each block once to add them to your account. You get 108 unique stickers enabling you to label not only boxes, but furniture and other household items for your move!

You are probably thinking you need to be tech savvy and this is a lot of work just to label some boxes. Not so! From personal experience I can tell you that moving is the worst! Packing up your life in boxes is easy. You feel accomplished when you are done packing and ready to go. The comes the hard part; unpacking! At that point – all the boxes look alike and it is frustrating to remember what is in which box. Labeling the boxes with dynotags is easy once you do the first couple boxes.

Once you activate your dynotags using the activation code included in the package, they become yours. As the owner, you can update tag contents any time over the web and even secure information using a password if you wish. Sign into your dynotag account to view detailed access records of your tag and even see the tag view accesses in your tag’s access log and on a map. Any device viewing the tag content is requested by Dynotag service to report its location. Smartphones have detailed awareness of their location at all times, with GPS assist and other location services. So if a box is misplaced, its dynotag can even help it to safely come back home!

Using dynotags can be a time saver and help keep your sanity during the move. Unpacking is stressful, but when you know exactly where everything is, you will be more in control and at ease.

QR Codes Give Small Businesses an Edge in Marketing

More and more we are seeing QR codes pop up around us: on billboards, in store windows, and on merchandise.

A recent study by the research group Comscore indicates that smartphone users are on the rise.  In one month, upwards of 14 million consumers will scan at least one QR code with their phone.  Over half of those consumers will be between the ages of 18 and 44, and men at 25% more likely to scan than women.

Dynotag can help small businesses contact with these potential customers through its free Internet-enabled QR Smart Tag technology.  A dynotag is a QR code that you own and have complete, free access to.  This dynotag serves as an initial touch point to grab the attention of potential customers, and it can be a small business’ secret marketing weapon: pique the curiosity of your customer and you can use the power of marketing pull to direct them into whatever content you choose. You can use the dynotag to send the customer to your mobile site, a coupon, or a call-to-action campaign.

Effective display of your dynotag can include in-store signs, merchandise, or window signs to attract passersby, and you have the ability to put it on your business card or company Christmas card.

Dynotag has a collection of products which enable you to reach your customer at every point of interaction.  Visit dynotag.com to learn more about using Dynotag to increase your marketing reach. Create a free account and add as many free dynotags as you need to get hands-on experience with this effective new tool to engage customers!

Dynotag QR Code Smart Tags: Luggage Tags 2.0

 Between airports, trains, and hotels, our luggage is as well-traveled as we are.  Standing by a luggage carousel, watching a line of suitcases wind past is an experience that induces stress and paranoia in even the most seasoned travelers.

On a Christmas cruise to the Eastern Carribbean, Houston natives Richard and Cathy Schauffler used Dynotag luggage tags and mini tags to break the mold and label their luggage with unique dynotags.

“The tags have our contact information, so if they were lost or mixed up with someone else’s luggage, we would have had a much easier time getting them back,” says Cathy.  “Plus, the luggage tags are distinct so we could find our luggage really fast.”

Anyone who has lost their luggage, gym bag, or laptop understands the importance of accurately labeling your stuff.  Sometimes luggage doesn’t make a connection, laptop bags are accidentally switched, and gym bags can get lost in the shuffle.  Dynotags are a savvy way to label your stuff and update your information as it changes.

A dynotag is a label that uses Internet-enabled QR Smart Tag technology to store information about the tag owner.  Users can upload an unlimited amount of data to the tag, and the tag can be edited for free for the lifetime of the product.

Law Firm Using Dynotags to Track Keys in Seattle

Alison Harris, a receptionist at a downtown, Seattle law firm, is using Dynotag technology to track the firm’s mail keys.

After dropping the mail keys down an elevator shaft, leaving them behind at a restaurant, and locking herself out of the mailroom, Alison decided it was time to label the keys.

“The secretary staff loses the keys on a regular basis.  I dropped them down an elevator shaft and another secretary left them at Starbucks.  The post office takes days to replace lost keys, so I needed to label the keys before they were lost again.”

Dynotag was the solution.  Alison saw a colleague using dynotag stickers to label her cell phone, iPod , and car keys and thought that QR technology would be a great way to label the mail keys.

“So many Seattle people have smartphones and if someone found the keys at the dry cleaners or the coffee shop, it would be so easy for him to scan the code and see the firm’s contact information.  Even if you don’t have a smartphone, the dynotag has a url on it so you can just look it up on your computer.”

Alison is using a keychain dynotag to label the mail keys, and she is using a built-in security feature to protect the information included on the tag.

“Confidentiality is really important to the firm, so I am using the PIN code on the tag to protect the firm’s name and contact information.  Only someone with physical access to the keys will see our contact information.”

“I can’t guarantee that I won’t lose the keys again, but I feel much better about using Dynotag to keep track of them,” jokes Alison.  “Let’s hope I don’t drop them down the elevator again, but if I do, the maintenance guy will be able to find us!”

Dynotag uses internet-enabled QR Smart Tag technology to help you label and track your stuff.  Visit Dynotag’s Amazon storefront for see the Dynotag collection.

        

Rescue Dog Stays Close to Home With Dynotag QR Smart Tag Technology

Bingley !

Pet owners now have the opportunity to use QR codes to track their lost pet through Dynotag and its free QR code technology.  Dynotag generates a free QR code, or a dynotag, which gives the user the freedom to label their belongings as well as a variety of other information sharing uses.

Pet owner Katherine Foust is using Dynotag’s free QR SmartTag technology to keep track of her rescue poodle, Bingley.  She has uploaded emergency contact information onto the pet tag dynotag so anyone who finds Bingley can easily contact her.

“He is usually right by my side, but if I ever lose him, I know the dynotag on his collar will give me a better shot at finding him…” says Katherine.

Anyone who find Bingley will be able to scan the pet tag with a smartphone or enter the url on the back of the dynotag into an internet browser.  The tag will then connect to a webpage that houses Katherine’s contact information and information about Bingley.

“This is such a technically savvy form of pet identification, andit is a non-invasive way of making his identification available to whoever finds him.  Typically vets microchip animals as a way of tracking them, but I don’t like the idea of injecting a device into his body.  This is absolutely the best option for humane pet identification.” adds Katherine.

Beyond pet identification, Katherine is using the Dynotag to have fun, changing the content to add a photo album of good times with Bingley last year, adding a holiday greeting during the holidays – effectively using the tag as a billboard of fun information related to Bingley as well as an emergency information tag. The ability to host a virtually unlimited amount of information ranging from text to photos to a scrapbook is a feature unique to Dynotags, one Bingley is putting to good use!

Katherine is very happy with her purchase and has given several dynotags to her friends.  “People stop me at the park and ask me about it.  The thought of losing your pet is scary, but Dynotag is the best chance you have at controlling a scary situation and putting the odds in your favor…” she adds.

Dynotag has many other products to help users simplify their lives.  Visit Dynotag’s Amazon storefront to discover the Dynotag collection.

 In the meantime, if you spot Bingley having fun in a Seattle park, do scan his dynotag to see what he has been up to!…

Surfer Does Not Take Chances, Uses dynotag QR Code Smart Tags to Mark His Gear!

As evidenced by his video scrapbook, Don Ledford, a native of Seattle area has been an avid surfer for years.

When it’s calm, he’s on his SUP, when it’s windy, he cracks the Windsurf gear out. When the waves are promising, surfboards are retrieved from the big Sprinter van, which serves as a moving dedicated equipment storage for Ledford.

As much fun as water sports are, the sea (or lake) occasionally claims a toll by claiming equipment such as paddles, gloves, hats, even a surfboard on occasion.

“Given the considerable expense of the equipment and all the accessories, it would be awesome to get them back” says Ledford, who cannot remember the count of all the stuff he has lost over the years.

“Even if someone finds it, they don’t know who to call to come get it” he continued.

That is when tagging his equipment occurred to him. That way, at least when someone finds the missing glove, paddle or board,  they’ll be able to contact Don and arrange for the lost equipment to find its way back home.

However, what to tag the equipment with?

Almost all equipment used in watersports gets exposed to extreme conditions like sun, salt, abrasion. Things either wear off or just get eroded away.

That’s when Don decided to try Dynotag’s “Internet Enabled QR Code Smart Mini Tags”.

Upon receiving them Don activated the tags with his contact information then applied them to his valued equipment, using wowen nylon strings in most cases…

The minitag is easy to secure on the board...

Nice job attaching the tag. Visible yet out of the way…

“I like these little tags have a short web address for my info., as well as the QR Code” says Ledford. “Not everyone has a smartphone that can read QR Codes but pretty much everyone knows how to visit a web address” he added.  Ledford has a whole set of boards for all water sports imaginable, and he has tagged them all!. “It took just a few minutes to do them all” he says. Certainly a worthy investment for the peace of mind.

Nice board, now with a dynotag!
Another nice board with its new dynotag…

 

After several weeks of use, Don is pleased with the tags, which appear to take the abuse well.

We’ll see which one will last longer, the tags or the surfboards.   Stay tuned for an update in a few months!
