We are excited to announce that we have signed a strategic partnership with Bagpoint, a highly secure and convenient door-to-door baggage delivery service company.
bagchain will connect the Bagpoint services to its bagchain cloud messaging platform and make the airlines secure baggage check-in services available to Bagpoint.
Customers can use the combined bagchain/Bagpoint services. Conveniently and securely check-in their baggage remotely at hotels, cruise ports and convention centers. And travel to the airport with only carry-on luggage. Arrived at the airport these passengers can go straight to the departure lounge, bypassing the check-in counters.
With this strategic partnership both companies will enter the market of remote bag drop solutions for travelers. The combined ecosystem is covering securely end-to-end all touchpoints.
Both companies are building towards an excellent blueprint which is to be rolled-out world-wide.
Looking back at 2018, it has been a very busy and successful year.
Some highlights this year; The first airport using the entire bagchain check-in suite went live. We introduced our mobile bagchain gate and bagchain tag kiosk. Helping airlines and ground-handling companies to assist with queue management both at the departure lounges and gate areas. Our bagchain print kiosks are more and more used and placed at off-airport locations. From Europe to the Americas and all the way to Asia Pacific, our innovative and simplified products are gradually rolled out.
We have connected several new customers such as airlines, airports and even an airline alliance to our bagchain cloud. Our messaging platform, for the exchange of messages but also to use our baggage label printing services worldwide.
Another highlight in April this year we moved to our new office at the Amsterdam Airport Schiphol Business Park Rijk, at the middle of the center where the action is. And just last month we’ve added an innovation lab. Innovation and simplifying, it’s in our DNA and that’s what we will continue to do.
On behalf of the entire bagchain team, we wish you and your families a Merry Christmas and successful and Happy 2019.
To keep pace with the development of our new products and features we’ve opened a dedicated bagchain innovation lab. Our highly skilled team of engineers have now their own playground. They can now use their cutting edge technologies and Agile development practices and test it immediately in a dedicated environment. But also work, test, chase lab rats and take power naps.
Our bagchain innovation lab is located on a safe distance from our office. Just across the hallway in suite number one.
Today we received our registration certificate from the European Union Intellectual Property Office. We are proud to announce that bagchain is now an official registered trademark under registration number EUTM 017920461.
