What is RFID?

Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) is the wireless non-contact use of radio frequency waves to transfer data. Tagging items with RFID tags allows users to automatically and uniquely identify and track inventory and assets. RFID takes data sharing technology to the next level by allowing tags to be read without line of sight.

Why use RFID?

RFID attendee tracking systems use the benefits of RFID technology to gather business intelligence at events like trade shows, conferences, corporate functions, and other large gatherings. RFID provides the visibility and metrics needed for informed decision making before, during, and after events.

How do cashless payments work for events?

Our RFID cashless bands store all pre-event ticket information and pre-event loaded funds accessible to patrons as soon as they enter the event.

When purchasing bar items, drinks, food or merchandise throughout the event, attendees tap their RFID wristband or card on a Cashless Events reader at each bar or vendor to make a purchase. Funds from their “digital wallet” are then transferred instantly to complete the transaction, this information is then tracked and matched to specific vendors for settlement on completion of the event.

How do RFID Wristbands work for events?

While RFID wristbands are one of the more common ways to “attach” RFID tags to event goers, they are not the only means of doing so. The minimal size of the tags means they can also be embedded into various other devices, e.g. cards, stickers, keyrings, etc.

Barcodes application at events is limited as they only can read information. RFID technology has a much wider and secure application as it can read, write and modify the information stored on your customers RFID tag. Additional advantages of RFID include better read range and being far more difficult to replicate through fraud or theft.
