WingMate is a "Smart" tag that provides a secure way to store personal contact information on virtually any travelling valuable such as luggage or electronics, and assists with the recovery of valuables when lost. Think of is as a transponder for your luggage or other items.
Using NFC or QR Code technology, WingMate is the most advanced luggage tag available. Never write on a luggage tag again and have your information easily exposed to the public. Simply update your contact information with a click of your mouse or use your smartphone! Whenever your tag is lost, WingMate increases the effectiveness of recovering your lost articles. WingMate was developed by two airplane pilots and is flight crew tested to be the best and last luggage tag you'll ever need!
How Does WingMate Work?
Each WingMate tag is embedded with a NFC (Near Field Communication) chip that, when read, acts as the "key" to our secure database.
WingMate also uses QR Code technology that may be used when NFC technology is unavailable.
Scanning the NFC chip or the QR code will bring the finder to our Lost and Found Portal. The person who found the tag may contact the owner using the methods provided on the owner's profile, or chat anonymously using our instant messenger system.
The information that you enter in your WingMate profile is securely stored in our database and may only be edited by you. Only contact information that you wish to be visible to others may be seen when accessed through our Lost and Found Portal.
You are sent an automatic email with the details of the find with a map of its location. A finder's contact information may also be provided at this time, or both parties may communicate anonymously via chat until the appropriate time to exchange information.
Available as a luggage tag and/or stickers, WingMate is one of the most versatile information protection and asset recovery platforms available! Use them on your luggage, smartphones, tablets, laptops, or anything else that you want the protection of WingMate.
