INSTeTAG Tested and Ready
for Florida Rollout
05/25/07 The INSTeTAG Print
on Demand system was successfully piloted in Orange
County Florida in the spring of 2006. Since then dealers
throughout Florida have been voluntarily converting
to INSTeTAG's Print on Demand, Tag Registration System.
For the past 14 months, the INSTeTAG system has been
tested and successfully operated in a variety of dealership
environments. From one man operations to mega dealerships,
the INSTeTAG system can be easily integrated into a
dealership's current process for issuing temp tags.
INSTeTAG provides new efficiencies for issuers and reduced
liability for dealers. Issuers print their Temporary
Tag, Temporary Registration, and Insurance Affidavit
on a single form. The tag is simultaneously registered
with the DMV and recorded in the dealer's electronic
temp tag log. The electronic registration process is
faster than manually completing the forms, handwriting
the temp tag and then recording in the temp tag log.
Pre-Printed tag shells are ordered via the system and
delivered directly to the dealer's location. Now when
a buyer displaying an INSTeTAG gets a parking or toll
road violation, the citation gets sent directly to the
customer's address, instead of the dealership. This
eliminates the hassle of responding to those citations
by dealership employees.
The INSTeTAG system also provides a free connection
to the Department of Treasury, Office of Financial Asset
Control, Specially Designated National's List allowing
dealers to meet their Federal Requirement to look up
a buyer in the SDN database prior to the sale and delivery
of any motor vehicle.
PODETR guarantees a dealer's temp tag log is 100% accurate,
eliminating the worry of violations and accompanying
fines from the DMV. The dealer's civil and criminal
liability for illegal distribution of temp tags by employees
is also significantly reduced.
The dealer's cost for INSTeTAG's PODETR is negligible.
The INSTeTAG printer is provided to the dealer at no
cost. INSTeTAG also provides customer support, and when
required, onsite service for the printer free of charge.
The cost per tag registration can be passed to the buyer
making the cost of using INSTeTAG minimal or even profitable
if the dealer wishes to add a reasonable markup on each
As compliance deadlines approach, available scheduling
times for printer installations and dealer training
will become increasingly difficult to guarantee. Dealers
are encouraged to schedule early to ensure installation
and training dates have been confirmed before their
