About Amtac

Established in 1993, Amtac Professional Services Pty Ltd ("Amtac") established itself as one of Australia’s most respected consultancy practices in the areas of security, risk management and crime prevention. From its base in south-east Queensland, Amtac services public and private sector clients throughout Australia, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea, Canada and Hong Hong.

Amtac was founded with a simple commitment to not only meet, but to exceed client expectations by delivering high quality outcomes.

Amtac’s mission is to ...
"deliver exceptional value for its clients, partners and investors through innovative and practical solutions, products and services."


For almost twenty years, Amtac has enjoyed longstanding relationships with many clients and has undertaken projects where extraordinary levels of innovation and sensitivity have been required to deliver the desired outcomes.

Many of these projects have involved developing web-applications to assist clients in managing their security related risks, and it is this experience and expertise that we bring to the new QR2id Service.

Amtac's other web-applications have included:

  • Electronic access control management systems for government and universities

QR2id® Origins

Amtac has been working with QR Codes in a range of contexts and applications for several years, after implementing the first 'publicly accessible' use of QR2id for validation of our own Amtac ID Cards. QR2id Codes have since been incorporated into new Staff and Student ID Cards for the University of Southern Queensland, ID cards for international volunteers with Austraining International, the Australian Red Cross and Australian Business Volunteers. QR2id Codes also appear on identification cards for the Victorian Department of Treasury and Finance Construction Code Compliance Unit.

We are delighted to be able bring this tried and tested functionality to new private and corporate clients, through a much wider range of QR2id applications than ID Cards. QR2id Codes are now finding their way on to key rings, pet collars, luggage tags, musical instruments, iPhones, tablet computers, bike helmets, location markers, safety/lock-out tags... and the list of innovative uses grows every day.

QR2id® is a valuable resource in enhancing personal or corporate safety and security and leverages Amtac's expertise in both risk management and web-application development. If you have any questions or suggestions, please do not hesitate to contact us at YW10YWNAYW10YWMubmV0.
