Eventbrite has announced it has started offering an RFID (Radio-frequency identification) solution, designed to help large, multi-day festivals and events streamline entry-management operations, create and enhance revenue streams, and reduce fraud. For the time being, the new solution is available in the US only.
“Eventbrite has always been at the forefront of technology in the events industry. We are committed to providing our partners with the most innovative products so attendees can have a superior experience, from buying a ticket to getting into the event and beyond,” said Eventbrite CEO and Co-Founder, Kevin Hartz. “Our vision is to own that end-to-end experience and we see a tremendous opportunity to democratise entry management the same way we democratised ticketing.”
To facilitate the roll out of the the system, Eventbrite has acquired Scintilla Technologies, an experienced Entry Management RFID hardware and software company.
“The powerful combination of Scintilla’s hardware and team with Eventbrite’s world-class software, entry management and field operations capabilities will allow us to deliver the most reliable, robust and flexible solution in the market,” said Eventbrite VP of Product, Laurent Sellier. “We’re excited to be building a complete end-to-end solution that will reduce the complexity and risk currently preventing large events and festivals from realising the benefits of RFID technology. We will continue to innovate on behalf of the customer to build solutions that delight the consumer.”
