Precision Dynamics’ Smart Band® RFID Wristband System Shines at Dollywood's Splash Country
Precision Dynamics’ Smart Band® RFID Wristband System recently implemented at Dollywood’s Splash Country provides daily and season pass guests cashless payment for food, beverages and merchandise.
San Fernando, CA - (August 13, 2007) – Precision Dynamics Corporation (PDC), a global leader in automatic wristband identification solutions, announces the successful implementation of its patented Smart Band® RFID system (Radio Frequency Identification) at Dollywood’s Splash Country Water Adventure Park in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee.
Dollywood’s Splash Country, a water adventure theme park that combines the beauty of the Smoky Mountains with the excitement of water park rides, implemented PDC’s RFID Smart Band® Wristband System for daily and season pass water park guests. Guests use the wristbands just like cash for cashless point of sale (POS) at all merchandise and food locations within the park. Introduced to park guests as “Sunny Money”, Dollywood’s Splash Country touts Precision Dynamics Smart Band® wristband as the easiest way ‘under the sun’ to enjoy dining and shopping.
In sun or shade, wet or dry -- PDC's Smart Band® wristbands work well, making them a great addition to any water park. Purchasing food and beverages at Dollywood's Splash Country is as simple as using the Smart Band® contactless payment feature. Guests walk up to any of the merchandise or retail locations located throughout the park running Applied Retail Solutions (ARS) OnePointe POS software, and the money is electronically loaded onto their wristband using cash, credit or debit cards. ARS made modifications to OnePointe which allows Dollywood’s Splash Country guests to put money on, or pay with PDC’s Smart Band® wristbands. Guests can also pay with the Smart bands at Dollywood’s MICROS Point of Sale system. ARS worked in concert with PDC and Herschend Family Entertainment (HFE) to deliver this solution in record time. Then, Smart Band® wristbands can be used at all merchandise, food and restaurant locations throughout Dollywood's Splash Country. All information on the wristband is encrypted, providing the utmost in security for guests.
“Implementing PDC’s RFID system has been perfect for it allows more time for me to focus on the water park’s total guest experience,” says Gary Nichols, Revenue Manager at Dollywood’s Splash Country. “More importantly, our guests and their families love the ease and convenience of the wristbands. Guests say they don’t have to lug around their wallets, spend time trying to find a place to keep their money safe or having to wait in long lines. One swipe – they’re done and are free to enjoy our water rides, get food or buy gifts. And in turn, that helps increase spending at our water park.”
