Datatag has won the Plantworx Security Innovation Award, for the second time, with their innovative new product, MicroCESAR.
The recently launched system, designed for small power tools, impressed the judges in a tough award category with a record number of entries. MicroCESAR was developed as a reaction to the growing issue of small tool theft in the construction, agricultural and landscaping markets and uses a combination of unique Datatag RFID transponder and tamper proof warning/registration label, with an integrated QR code. In this way each piece of equipment is given a unique 'fingerprint' that thieves will find virtually impossible to remove. Like CESAR, the official security and registration scheme for large construction and agricultural equipment, MicroCESAR acts as both a powerful deterrent against theft and an invaluable aid to recovery. It also provides the police with quick and easy verification of ownership without the need for special equipment or lengthy laboratory testing. Read More

Which is handy for the Police as Nick also manages Datatag's Accredited Police Training Courses ensuring at least some of his encyclopaedic knowledge is passed on to the serving officers. Read More
