About Global ID Registry (GIDR)

by Kevin Loughrey(CEO)

Core Business.  Global ID Registry(GIDR) is the commercial embodiment of NuEra-ID Pty Ltd; a company focused on providing the means by which it is practical and cost-affordable to individually identify any entity of interest.  This ability to individually identify anything makes it easy and inexpensive for any organisation or a person to track and/or account for any item of interest, inanimate and animate, for any number of reasons.  Examples of where this could be useful are:

  1. Stores and Inventory Control.   Being able to individually identify stores provides far greater control than is the case when stores are identified only in terms of their type and possibly their batch number.  In supermarkets, stores are typically identified by a linear barcode that indicates the type of article, for example, a shirt, its size, the model and manufacturer.  This information is used to determine the price the customer is to be charged and, by keeping count of the sales, will also assist in the reordering and stocking process.  Individual identification also provides this capability and a great deal more.  For example, it allows the determination of:
    • when the shirt was made, on which machine it was made, who made it
    • when was the shirt was purchased from the manufacturer, on what purchase order, how much did each shirt cost individually, when was it delivered to the supermarket's warehouse
    • how long has the shirt sat in the supermarket's warehouse, who took it from the warehouse and placed it on the shelf, how long it has sat on the store's shelf, how many times has it been rearranged and who performed these tasks, how long did that task take,
    • when the shirt was purchased by the customer, when was it returned, what action was taken to investigate the cause of the return and, possibly, obtain a refund.... and so on;
    all of which could be very useful for the proper management of quality control and warranty matters.
  2. Removalist Industry.  Imagine how easy removals would be if every item of value could be uniquely identified and this unique number linked to a record in an inventory.  Importantly, if every removalist used numbers that were guaranteed to be unique there would never be a clash of numbers.  Goods marked with a unique number during previous removals could be used by the current removalist as well; saving a great deal of labour.
  3. Production Control.  Being able to individually identify every item on a production line enables precise monitoring of the processes to which it was subjected and the workforce involved in the process.
  4. Record keeping.  Individual identification of every page of every communication, of every telephone call, every email or digital message, enables precise control within a communications management system.
  5. High security item tracking.  A important element of managing high security items is to be able to keep continuous track of their location.  This is only possible through individual identification.

Unique Encrypted Numbers. At the core of this system is the provision to companies, at a very modest cost, numbers that are guaranteed to be unique and which can be verified as having come from GIDR's registry.  These numbers can be associated with any individual item, or a family of items where only generic identification is desired, such as is usually the case in a supermarket for example.) in a list, inventory or database.  Once this association between unique number and item has been made, the number can be used to track the item throughout the whole of its life. 

60% less Effort than conventional hierarchical systems of identification such as GS1. Using this system of marking and identification involves around 60% less labour than using other unique identification systems based on barcodes and a hierarchical structure of number allocation, such as Global System One (GS1).

Inexhaustible Supply and Serially Contiguous for each Client-System. The size of the registry is such that it is for all practical purposes inexhaustible. The Global ID Registry registry can issue one billion, billion unique numbers per annum for around 79 billion years.  Each client system's numbers will be serially contiguous from one issue to the next.

Can be used with any "Automatic ID Technology" capable of representing 128 bits of data. A Global ID Registry number can be represented by a conventional two dimensional barcode, such as DataMatrix, PDF417 or QR Code, or by most RFID transponders or, for that matter, any other form of automatic ID technology that supports 128 bits or greater of stored data. 

Development of novel barcode, reader and etcher.  Global ID Registry has developed a novel barcode to represent their numbers and a prototype barcode reader to read these barcodes however this is not yet mature enough to put into commercial production.  Global ID Registry barcodes are designed to be easily etched by laser.  In connection with this, Global ID Registry has plans to develop a low-cost, hand-held, laser etching system for this purpose; thereby eliminating the need for adhesive labels and tie-on tags in most instances.  As mentioned, the barcode has been deliberately designed such that it represented only by dots and so can be printed or etched using simple, low-cost means.  The barcode has a high level of redundancy and so is also very resistant to dirt and damage.

Open Source Software.  Global ID Registry, through the use of Open Source Software, makes its software freely available to users.  In this respect, Global ID Registry will provide every possible assistance to help people and organisations use its technology suite.

Commercial Model.  The GIDR makes it money by selling numbers at a very reasonable cost.  With every sale there is a $10.00 administrative fee.  Table 1 provides the scale of charges for numbers. Numbers cost between 0.1 cents to 0.001 cents; the greater the order the cheaper are the numbers. 

A substantial portion of the revenue derived from this enterprise is returned into the development and promotion of Open Source Software and related technologies as a means of accelerating the societal advancement of developing countries.
