With increasing passenger volumes and evolving regulations, airports and airlines require innovative technologies to optimise operations, enhance security, reduce mishandled baggage, and promote positive passenger experiences.
The aviation industry is constantly updated with technological advancements driving efficiency and with systems in place to help enhance passenger experiences. One specific area within the industry currently undergoing major technological change is baggage and the handling of baggage. As a company with the vision to make legacy baggage issues a thing of the past, we rely on strong partnerships to drive this forward. Luckily, we found another company that is just as passionate - Brock Solutions.
In an exciting partnership, BagsID and Brock Solutions work as two innovative companies, joining forces to revolutionise baggage management, offering a seamless and secure solution to improve the travel experience for passengers worldwide.
BagsID: Reimagining Baggage Tracking
At BagsID we like to think of ourselves as an innovative technology company specialising in baggage tracking and management solutions. With a focus on enhancing efficiency and reducing the likelihood of lost luggage, we leverage state-of-the-art technologies, based around baggage profiling through imagery and AI, using cloud-based software.
Through our advanced tracking infrastructure, we enable real-time monitoring of baggage throughout the entire journey. This technology eliminates the need for manual scanning and ensures accurate tracking from check-in to arrival, providing peace of mind to both passengers and airlines alike.
Our technology works as a smart camera and tracking system. Using images of bags to connect tracking to that bag, we work alongside other technology to help enable our systems into airports. One of these systems is Brock Solutions’ SmartSuite platform.
