Utaggit's Online Tagging Service is the evolution of the age old practice of labeling personal property with one's name and contact information. With Utaggit, instead of writing your whole name and contact information on a limited "real estate" , you only need to write your tag link. A Tag Link is a short URL such as kontak.me/globetrotter. Adding it on your tags or labels makes your tag "hold more information" and it can do more than just identify that an object is associated with you. You can add more practical information such as a message to whoever finds your property, or add a "return to address", and perhaps even add flight information if the tag will be used for airline baggage handling. The benefit varies depending on how you use it. In general the benefits are as follows:
‣ Convenience: Saves you time and effort from manually editing all your bag tags because there is actually nothing to edit. If you ever need to manually write something when you are creating your tags, you simply have to write the following sample phrase "Found my stuff? Pls. contact me at kontak.me/globetrotter " and you'll only have to do this only once if your bag tag is designed to last.
‣ Durability: Our made to order travel bag tags are made of high grade plastic resin that is very rugged and durable. The texts are laser engraved to make sure they do not fade. It will last for a long time and this translates to monetary savings and one less item to maintain.
‣ Privacy: You can hide your contact information from prying eyes and choose to show it only when you need to.
‣ Worry Free: No batteries means nothing to check or replace. Just pack your stuff and you are ready to go.
‣ Recovery: Labeling personal items increase the chances of recovering them when they get lost. If you give the finder a way to contact you, chances are, he or she will call you. Though you may have to reward the finder in some form, nothing is more valuable than getting your personal items back.

‣ Set the Tag Status to "IN-TRANSIT" when you travel. If you lose the bag, change the Tag Status to "LOST" in the Utaggit Control Panel page. If you have multiple bags associated under one tag link, upload the photo of the bag that got lost for easier identification.
‣ Request a tracking. You can request a tracking from Kontakme if you need one. Do take note that there is no guarantee that your stuff will be returned or if a tracking log will be generated as this depends if your tag link will be opened from a browser by the finder. If we detect that a tracking beacon has been sent from the finder's device, there is a good chance of being able to recover the lost item.
