Alcatel-Lucent’s tikitag system, an RFID-enabled solution that offers a way to link offline objects to the digital world, has had a name change. Now called touchatag, the rebranding brings with it a number of enhancements, including new business solutions, 2D bar code support, and extended API service.
The enhanced offerings of the touchatag system seem geared towards expanding its accessibility in a growing market. Among the newly introduced business solutions are an application for electronic value transactions, such as loyalty programs, and a mobile workforce solution, which enables one-touch service registration and information access while on the move. The newly included API suite enables developers to create their own applications for the touchatag system with relative ease, while the 2D bar code offers both businesses and consumers an additional format to access the system.
