TAGeasy Platform Generates Subscription-Based Recurring Revenue for Universal Guardian
Universal Guardian Holdings, Inc., (OTC BB:UGHO.OB) an emerging global leader in non-lethal protection products, integrated transportation and global supply chain security systems and strategic security services to protect against terrorist, criminal and security threats to governments and businesses worldwide, announced today that its innovative TAGeasy web-based RFID system is now available to more than 60,000 suppliers of the United States Department of Defense (DoD), all of whom must comply with current mandates that require all shipments to the DoD to have RFID labels. Universal Guardian's Department of Defense (DoD) approved TAGeasy web-based software application allows shippers to easily and immediately meet DoD shipping requirements with little or no capital investment.
``TAGeasy is just that...easy! Simply sign-up for a secure on-line account, enter the shipping details, and TAGeasy™ programs and prints the supplier's customized RFID labels at our service center and ships them overnight, ready for the supplier to simply attach and ship. In addition, TAGeasy automatically generates Automated Shipment Notices (ASN) over the Internet,'' stated Michael Skellern, Universal Guardian's CEO. ``TAGeasy™ enables small to medium size DoD suppliers to cost-effectively RFID label or ''tag` individual unit level goods, cases, and pallets. Most DoD suppliers are small to medium size businesses that typically don't have the budget, staff, or capital resources to invest in a complex RFID infrastructure,'' added Mr. Skellern.
``Ease-of-use and the ability to get personalized support through TAGeasy™ made it easy for us to affordably order RFID labels over the Internet,'' said Gene Schuler, President of Santee Supply a provider of military packaging solutions for the United States Department of Defense.
TAGeasy is part of Universal Guardian's Total Asset Guardian™ (TAG3) asset visibility and management platform. TAGeasy platform generates subscription-based, recurring revenue for the Company, and provides businesses of all sizes with a growth plan and a migration path to Universal Guardian's integrated and interoperable TAGstation™ web-hosted RFID systems solution and its TAGcentral™ enterprise level RFID systems solution. Both TAGstation and TAGcentral provide key ERP integration as well as strong systems and back-end support.
The worldwide RFID market size is estimated to exceed $4 billion by 2008, up from just $500 million dollars in 2007.
