Applications

RFID technology has numerous uses. It relieves the need and cost of constant monitoring and extra security personnel.

Here are a few examples of RFID applications in todays world...

EVENTS

It takes thousands of workers to execute on a major sporting event. Everyone from food service workers to ushers to on-site paramedics need the appropriate level of physical access authorization which can change by the minute. Ushers deployed before the event may be called upon for crowd control during half time festivities. DSS Plastics Group maintains relationships with leading event security detail suppliers for RFID based credentials that enable faster loading of event staff into a venue and dynamically changeable access levels as the event progresses.

DSS's RFID ticket stock provides exceptional throughput of event attendees that can be combined with value add amenities for season ticket holders and pre-paid concession purchases using RFID.

The same RFID technology used by the Department of Defense for precise awareness of assets is applicable to the timely need for event supplies, be it racks of food service plates and cutlery to tote bins of sporting equipment or even portable toilets. RFID can provide knowledge of event asset in real time so that management can respond with appropriate decisions.
