PDC to Showcase RFID Solutions for Cashless Payment at Amusement Industries
San Fernando, CA (October 11, 2005) – Precision Dynamics Corporation (PDC), a global leader in automatic wristband identification, will exhibit at the amusement industry’s largest worldwide gathering—IAAPA Attractions Expo 2005 Annual Conference and Trade Show, November 14-19, 2005 at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta, Georgia.
PDC will showcase its newest products for cashless payment, including Smart Kiosk™, Smart Reader, and Smart Band® RFID Wristbands.
Smart Kiosk is a free-standing booth with touch-screen that allows patrons to load money using cash, credit or debit cards onto Smart Band RFID (radio frequency identification) Wristbands, which are provided to patrons at admissions. Smart Reader is a free-standing combination point-of-sale (POS) reader that replaces the need for expensive stand-alone POS systems and readers.
The cashless payment system helps 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.
“We are pleased that Precision Dynamics Corporation will be exhibiting at IAAPA Attractions Expo 2005,” said IAAPA President and CEO Clark Robinson. “IAAPA Attractions Expo combines great marketing and business opportunities for exhibitors and buyers, as the Expo has established itself as the largest trade show of its kind in the world for the amusement and attractions industry.”
PDC will join approximately 1,100 premier amusement industry manufacturers, suppliers, and consultants. The show is expected to attract an attendance of 28,000 amusement industry professionals.
