Turnstile, barrier or manual control with torn tickets? This was common practice, but is it right for today? Today’s access management involves e-tickets stored on a smartphone, smart-chip season tickets and so on. Tearing stubs isn’t an option.
If anti-counterfeiting and personalization are then added, it can be costly for customers and operators. Visitors will also be required to carry identity cards so that identity can be confirmed and access control can be subject to the whims of your marshals.
There must be easier ways to work. Why not identity-check at the point of purchase, shoot a photo with a webcam and record it on the ticket? And what does that ticket look like? Bar codes, 2D bar codes on paper or mobile, RFID, or just a phone number?
It’s up to you. Ticket validation can be activated using hard buttons on the side of Quipos One, so marshals don’t have the keep looking back at a display to check the process. Unless Quipos One has alerted them to a problem, of course, when they have all the necessary information and actions at their fingertips.
Ticket information and any existing photo can be displayed immediately on the Quipos One – and instantly checked over the network. Thus: access is granted only once and only for the authorized person. It takes no longer than tearing-off tickets and beats passport control by miles!
Quipos. How it’s done.
