Imagine being involved in an event which hundreds of people are set to attend. You are one of the primary hosts and naturally you want to provide the best possible experience for each individual. But how, in an event of this magnitude, could you ever record who was there? You want to know how you can keep track and manage all these guests to ensure the event’s success and your ability to follow up with the guests afterwards. Now imagine these guests flowing in to your event in a chaotic pandemonium, each expecting it to be the best night of their lives. The challenge has begun, but with a little help from RFID, it turns out it is no challenge at all!
Some of the most helpful advances in the RFID field have been discovering the vast number of applications RFID can be used for. We are all familiar with RFID’s applications in inventory control, but how about applying it to “human inventory” management? In major events such as the one we described, the simplicity in keeping track of your guests is evolving rapidly.
With a simple combination of capable units you will be able to not only keep track of, but with the right software also follow up with your guests. All you need is a Rio Pro UHF Card printer, UHF ID Badges, some lanyards, and a CS-101 UHF handheld scanner. Magicard’s Rio Pro UHF Card printer gives you the ability to print and encode GEN 2 UHF ID badges that can be handed out to your guests on the spot. With the right software in place these cards can be registered with personal information (name and email address for example) and placed on lanyards for the guests to wear.
Now the only difficult part is choosing in what manner you would like to wield your handheld scanner(s). As an example, you could choose to scan each person as they enter the event, taking note of who physically attended. If your event consists of booths or information stations, having a scanner at each booth will allow you to tailor your follow up to individual guest’s interests. If you want to go all out, hire some photographers, give them Bluetooth enabled cameras and a CS-101 handheld scanner and have them photograph your guests, add your company’s logo, and upload the pictures via Bluetooth to each individual’s social media site of choice. And you thought we were joking when we said the opportunities were endless!
Now, are you too tired to follow up with your guests after all that event planning and execution? Good thing you tracked it all, now just make your software do the rest!
