About

Tag IT Technologies came to life in 2002. Originally focussing on rural security and CCTV systems the company quickly developed a solid reputation for doing fast and efficient work whilst providing awesome customer service. As technology developed further Tag IT starting working with on-farm WiFi systems and was a key technical partner in the development of LIC’s ProTrack automatic drafting gate. As ProTrack developed the Tag IT team travelled throughout New Zealand training regional installers how to install this complex technical product.

Seeing an opportunity to develop the use of on-farm data the HALO product began development in 2008. By 2009 we had our first live system up and running and we knew the product had great potential. Now with more than 1000 systems live on farms, growing operations and industrial applications throughout the world we are helping, both sole operators and multi-unit businesses, to run more efficient operations. Monitoring many aspects of their businesses along with fully automated, command and control systems. Controlling, reporting and monitoring from anywhere in the world HALO System does it all.
