Precision Dynamics Corporation to Showcase Smart Kiosk RFID System at World Waterpark Conference
Smart Kiosk Uses RFID Wristbands to Offer Cashless Payment Solution
San Fernando, CA (October 8, 2004) – Precision Dynamics Corporation (PDC), a global leader in automatic wristband identification, will exhibit its latest product development, Smart Kiosk, during the World Waterpark Association Annual Symposium and Trade Show in Ft. Lauderdale, FL, October 8-9. PDC’s Smart Kiosk, a solution for cashless payment, is complimentary to PDC’s Smart Band® RFID Wristband System.
Smart Kiosk is a free-standing booth with a touch-screen that allows patrons to load money using cash, credit or debit cards onto RFID (radio frequency identification) wristbands which are provided to patrons at admissions. The cashless payment system consists of Smart Kiosks, Smart Band® RFID Wristbands, and RFID Readers, which would be located at all points-of-sale throughout the venue for quick and easy purchases.
The system will also help increase throughput at concession stands, reducing long lines that often deter patrons from making additional purchases. Most of the time spent waiting in lines is attributed to the financial transactions of handling and counting cash, or processing credit cards.
“The Smart Kiosk is a money loading device that works similar to ATM machines, but instead, funds are transferred onto patrons’ RFID wristbands,” comments Victor LaRosa , PDC RFID Manager. “It is part of the latest cashless payment technology which is particularly practical for water parks where patrons don’t like to carry wallets, and loose cash can get wet or lost. It provides an added convenience for both parks and patrons.”
Stop by PDC’s booth #514 to see the Smart Kiosk. For product and sales support call 818-897-1111 ext. 1320. For trade show information, visit www.waterparks.org/convention.asp.
