What is NFC Tag Management ?

NFC tag management software allows the full control of your NFC tags before, during and after deployment. Seritag develop and manage one of the most advanced NFC tag management platforms on the market - ixkio. Here's why you might use it. 

Before Deployment

Ixkio has in-built encoding features so you can encode and prepare your tags. A variety of organisational tools such as folders, tag groups and batches can also allow you to keep control of stock and live tags, allowing you to plan ahead. 

During Deployment

Put simply, this is about making sure the right NFC tags go in the right products or places. Ixkio has a range of tools to allow tags to be assigned or encoded to the right products so that you know where your tags are and can manage them correctly.

After Deployment

Ixkio allows you to control and alter the destination of a tag scan - dynamic links. The platform also provide fully integrated support for the more advanced authentication NFC tags for fast and easy use. 

Tag Management Features

Dynamic tag links

The ability to change where tags link remotely after they have been deployed.
Tag management allows you to modify the destination page or site of your tags as often and whenever you want. Makes sure your tags are under your control wherever they may be.


Secure your products using anti-counterfeit authentication NFC tags.
Ixkio tag management makes using encryption tags easy. Add the tags to your products, create a couple of pages on your website and get started. No stress and no hassle. 

Simple deployment and assignment

Ready to use tag deployment - get the right tags in the right products
Ixkio makes batch deployment and assignment of tags across multiple products as easy as a tag scan. Tags encoded by Seritag can be automatically loaded into tag management software so they are ready to use before they arrive. Just scan and assign using our powerful assignment and Locus features. 

The Ixkio NFC tag management system has been developed specifically for use with NFC tags. However, for customers deploying QR Codes alongside NFC, ixkio also has full QR Code support as well.

Designed using our substantial NFC experience, the ixkio platform can handle tens of tags or millions and allows easy and powerful management. Ixkio has a number of easy to use management features including in location tag assignment, batch management, tag group or single tag control and more.

Ixkio can be used as a Redirect system, an API 'behind the scenes' authentication or identification system, or a Direct Response system where tag/product/item data can be directly presented.


For quick and easy integration, the Redirect option provides complete flexibility. Designed for integration into existing product/website frameworks (such as Shopify, Wordpress, etc). Just link the NFC tags directly through to your existing pages. Even authentication tags can be used with the addition of a couple of pages and the use of a few lines of plug and play javascript code.  


For more advanced users wanting to leverage the power of authentication tags, ixkio offers a comprehensive and reliable API. NFC tags can be encoded and keys preloaded before shipment so they are ready to use. 

Direct Response

For internal and supply chain control, Direct Response is a free-standing system to secure and identify NFC tags applied to production products or packaging. Ideal for use with tamper authentication tags, ixkio's Direct Response system can be set-up with hours to provide confidence and security across supply networks. Now anyone with a mobile phone at any stage, anywhere, can check the authenticity of the goods. 

Using Ixkio with Seritag

Tags purchased through Seritag can be encoded and automatically loaded into Ixkio by us. They will work before they even arrive on your desk or factory floor.

If you already have an Ixkio plan, you can enter your account code and batch code when ordering tags to have them loaded directly onto the platform.

If you are purchasing a larger number of tags and/or are intending to use authentication tags, contact us to discuss your project.
