Streamline the operations of your event with a little help from world-leading technology developed by Token. RFID ticketing provides cashless, hassle-free efficiency, with the capacity to gather insight-rich data. Can’t be bad.

How Does RFID Work?

RFID, or Radio Frequency Identification Devices, are small wearable chips stored on lanyards or wristbands. Each device has an inbuilt radio transmitter and receiver, and pairs with a reader by sending encrypted signals. By gathering information unique to the device wearer, you have the power to securely track, identify and transfer data insights to enhance the event.  

So, what edge does Token hold over its competitors?

Token uses a truly offline system, rather than a wireless offline system. The crucial disparity between these systems could make all the difference to the success of your event.

Many RFID industry heavy-weights lay claim that their technology operates on an offline basis. While this is technically true, there are significant downsides to choosing a wireless offline system solution.

How useful is a wireless offline system? Not very.

Wireless offline systems operate using large on-site servers, which are hooked up to all point-of-sale top up and payment devices. Transactions are processed on the server, rather than the devices. They only work offline when connected to WiFi, so if this is lost due to connectivity issues, so is the ability to process sales and top ups. Not ideal.

Token offers a truly offline system.

Each transaction is securely processed by Token’s Android point-of-sale devices, which store a local copy of the database. This information is then synchronised to a cloud server when possible. The data is also stored on the wristband, so when one wristband touches multiple devices, the data is backed up across all units.

What does this mean for you? In the event of WiFi saturation or a power-cut, your thirsty event-goers get their Pale Ales, and your profits aren’t stinted by unforeseen downtime. The party goes on.

Token’s RFID ticketing can even cut out the need to arrange active internet or costly WiFi solutions in the first place. WiFi can be an expensive pursuit, particularly in remote locations, with costs easily reaching the $20,000 mark.

What’s the best solution for your event?

Token offers cashless technology to streamline your event, with no risk of losing connectivity due to WiFi downtime. In fact, Token has never caused any disruption to food, drinks or merchandise vendors.
