Versatile Use: Advantages for Cardholders
In addition to easing the workload of your employees with the card dispenser, the vented data carriers offer other attractive advantages for your members: Beyond their pure benefit as proof of membership, cardholders can use the credentials thanks to state-of-the-art RFID technology in order to
- obtain access to authorized areas or approved premises, such as pool facilities or wellness areas,
- store their valuables in electronic locker systems,
- make cashless payments at e.g. vending machines.
Snack and beverage vending machines with chip payment functions can generate additional revenue without staff at snack bars or shop cash points. Cardholders can use the GV6 vending reader at NFC terminals for solarium, power plates or showers and cashless vending machines to purchase their favorite products quickly and easily. Also, you can benefit from the use of card readers at a corresponding point of sales system: You enable your visitors to pay for the purchased products using the smart RFID card here, too. You save the use of employees and additional cashiers thanks to modern RFID reading systems. At the same time, you also increase security in your facility by reducing cash handling to a minimum.
