Description of Services
Saddle Network is an ID tagging and online equipment registration system. Equipment Information Storage - ID Tagged and untagged items are, entered, updated, modified, shared and status changed. Files are stored online safely and securely on the Saddle Network web site. Members can access their equipment information through any computer or smartphone. Theft Recovery - In the event that a saddle is stolen, Saddle Network members have the ability to log onto their profile, change the saddle’s status to stolen, thereby immediately alerting the Saddle Network community through email, text alerts to cell phones, front page coverage on the Saddle Network Stolen Alert section, as well as links to social networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter. During the possible purchase of a stolen saddle, when the ID tag is entered for status check on the Saddle Network website, accessed either by computer or scan of the QR code on each ID tag, by smartphone, the buyer will be alerted immediately by the saddle pictured in a ‘red frame’ that it is stolen, should be held, and authorities called. Since ID tags have location continuity on each saddle as well as two small holes in the leather for tag installation, if the tag has been removed the holes will be in of themselves a red flag that the legitimacy of the saddle should be questioned. TackBay – Buy & Sell - Saddle Network members and non-members have the ability to view and buy equipment on Saddle Network’s TackBay. Only Saddle Network members are allowed to list items to sell on TackBay. Saddle Network retailers and manufacturers have the ability to create their own virtual showrooms on TackBay. No commissions are paid to Saddle Network only a small listing fee that applies only to the ‘basic’ membership plan. All transactions and negotiations are between seller and buyer. Saddle Network provides TackBay only as a forum in which to bring these parties together.
