Badge & Track enables the electronic management and reporting of delegate attendance to events and is available as an optional module to our Conference Card Creator or ComPic software, or as part of our event badging service. Each badge is personalised with a unique identifier e.g. a printed barcode or RFID card number, and the badges are scanned on entry and/or exit and collected data used to monitor and report on attendance.
Using Badge & Track with Conference Card Creator you can create personalised paper passes; with ComPic you can also add a photo and print onto PVC, Ecocards/recycled materials, RFID, Smart Cards. A wide range of card holders and accessories are available for wearing the badges and, if required, these can be customised to promote your chosen brand.
ComPic/Conference Card Creator holds the database of delegates and automatically creates a serial number for each record. This unique number can be printed in barcode format or written to a RFID/smart card e.g. a Mifare card. Badges are read with a range of hand-held devices, e.g. barcode readers, which are used to scan passes as delegates enter or exit an event. These readers can be wireless, Bluetooth enabled, remote or tethered.
As data from the readers is downloaded, a running tally of scanned delegates is created. This gives you fast and accurate information on ‘room-fill' - useful for checking attendance prior to event start time, for confirming seating/catering requirements and complying with maximum venue capacity. Badge & Track also enables you to quickly confirm if key individuals - say a VIP or Speaker - have arrived by checking their record in the database; you do not have to search through a list.
Entry to the event or certain session can be controlled using the booking and validation features in Badge & Track together with appropriate hardware, checks can be made to the database to ensure that card holders are genuine and carrying a valid pass. Depending on the configuration of the system, this verification process might include retrieval of their personal data and photo image for rapid on-the-spot authentication.
