Let’s discuss the benefits that RFID technology can bring to Access Control Management and how event organizers can utilize the wealth of data created when implementing Access Control and Cashless Payments into their events.

ACCESS CONTROL: To simply explain the technology that MagicTap offers, RFID is a chip that goes onto a wristband/cards, and upon that chip, information is placed that can only be read by certain operators. On that chip, operators can build various zones of access within their festival or event. Organizers can use the technology to control their own event, in particular to monitor crowd movement through different areas of their venue. VIP guests, for example, can enter an event through the gates with the general audience but the data stored on the chip will allow them access into restricted VIP zones as well. The same was done in one of our events this year, Neel City Club’s Dandiya Festival. The VIP guests had different entries than the general people wherein the VIP guests could enter from the general gates but the general ones couldn’t enter through the VIP gates. We’re now seeing the popularity of this technology spread all over the country as more and more of the world’s biggest live events begin to adopt RFID.

RFID TECHNOLOGY: There are three ways that MagicTap can help an event adopt RFID technology. The first is a ‘ticket switch’ scenario, wherein individual unique codes are sent out in advance through an Email or a message and visitors bring this along on a print-out, which then gets exchanged into an RFID wristband/card on arrival. The second option is called ‘wristband fulfillment’, whereby the RFID wristbands are sent out via post to the visitors before their arrival at the event or festival. The third option is the ‘onspot wristband’ in which that the visitors registering themselves on the spot and taking their wristbands/cards then and there. They can top-up in advance or at the venue to enjoy on-site Cashless Payments. On the day of the event, visitors just tap their wristbands on the Access Control tapping points to simply walk into the event venue. This technology helps speed up ingress and egress from an event because our Access Control technology can process a person’s entry into an event in less than a second. We have stewards on the outside of the portals to help should any problems occur and direct the visitors straight into a customer service area where they are swiftly dealt with.

DATA GENERATED: All the information generated through Access Control and Cashless Payments is there for the operators to utilize to their full advantage. Security can use the movement reports to identify the numbers of people in different areas of the event. Access Control technology is not only designed to
be used for event-goers, but it can be deployed for the production side of an event too. Production
managers can use the data to inform staff management practices as they will have movement
reports on exactly where staff is on site.
