Datatag ID Limited, were this year’s gold sponsors of the Construction Plant Association (CPA) Conference which took place on the 9th November, at Wyboston Lakes Conference centre.

Datatag ID, is the number one UK provider of security technology and the power behind many recognised industry schemes, including CESAR for large construction and Agricultural Equipment, COMPASS for the marine market and The MASTER Scheme for the bike market.

As previous exhibitors at CPA conferences Datatag was pleased to be invited back to exhibit once again. The CPA event provides a unique networking opportunity for exhibitors, sponsors and delegates who get to hear from key industry figures about the latest developments and also important predictions for the future of the plant hire industry.

This year’s conference was titled ‘Understanding and influencing the future of construction plant hire’. This year’s conference theme was of particular relevance to Datatag as they launch the final phases of the Micro-CESAR system.

The new Datatag security system Micro-CESAR, is set to make a huge impact in the fight against small tool theft following in the footsteps of the CESAR System which uses an array of Datatag security marking technology.

Micro-CESAR, was officially launched at the 8th Combined Industries Theft Solutions (CITS) conference and has already been evaluated by a number of leading manufacturers of small tools.

Like the Construction Equipment Association’s (CEA) official CESAR Scheme, Micro-CESAR uses an array of Datatag security marking technology including a unique RFID tag and a tamper proof warning/registration label with an integrated QR code.

Micro-CESAR and CESAR are both designed to act as a deterrent against theft and as an invaluable aid in recovery. CESAR, which was launched in 2007, has contributed to a 70%+ reduction in the theft of large construction equipment and Micro-CESAR is poised to make a similar impact protecting small construction tools and landscaping equipment such as power tools, cut-off saws, hand-held hydraulic breakers and compaction plates.

As an added bonus the technology used 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.

Adopters of the new scheme will be announced at next years Executive Hire Show (EHS) which will be held at the Ricoh Arena, Coventry, in February.
