Interactive voting system manufacturer, Group Dynamics, has launched its contactless interactive attendance management system to the market.
Based on industry-standard RFID technology, Smart Badges are used to identify and process the delegates with a swipe over an active reader. Access rights can be stored on the badges and a register of each action is collected on the readers for analysis.
As with traditional badging, Smart Badges display all the information needed to identify a delegate, such as logos and names, and can easily be printed on the badges in full colour.
However, the advantage of the new product, says the company, is that they can also store encrypted information using an integrated RFID circuit. As well as identifying the delegate and the event, they can also store any other relevant information such as demographic data, access and voting rights. They can be used as electronic tickets, for example, to allow delegates to enjoy a certain number of concessions.
Smart Badges can be scanned at various points for different purposes using contactless readers. They can also be used with the Audience Response Systems from Group Dynamics, allowing them to be fully-integrated with all the activities taking place at a particular event.
At one recent five-day conference involving 700 international delegates, each had been able to purchase a slightly different package, allowing a choice of attending a combination of presentations or workshops on different days. The use of Smart Badges informed the organisers who had visited which sessions on which day.
