RFID Access Control
Beginning at wristband registration, Front Gate will help you learn more about your fans.
Attendees can use their Facebook or email information to easily register their wristband through our online portal. Now you are able to collect valuable demographic and profile data on who actually attended the event, in addition to who purchased the ticket.
Secured RFID wristbands and credentials are almost impossible to effectively replicate and our rapid-reading portals and handheld devices expedite entry and alleviate lines. Acquire valuable insight into your event by layering internal access points to better understand the flow of your festival and gain actionable data.
Allow your patrons to seamlessly connect your wristbands with our partner Point of Sale systems to sell food, beverages, and merchandise at your event.
Create accountability with your vendors and drive revenue. Festivals using our integrations have seen a 20% increase in number of transactions per patron, as well as, a 24% increase in the amount each patron spends per transaction, amounting in a 16% per head increase in revenue.
