As part of our ongoing efforts to make onsite conference management more efficient, secure and cost-effective, Eventinterface has partnered with Houston-based Zenus to integrate facial recognition technology at event check in.
The technology streamlines the check in process at conferences and events by using facial recognition to grant access to the event. Attendees no longer have to stand in line to check in, or bring a ticket to be scanned. In addition to faster check in, the technology also provides a much-needed level of security to events. The technology can be used for general event check-in and to track attendance at sessions. It can also assist in blocking access to invite only and restricted sessions at conferences.
“The partnership with Zenus makes great sense for Eventinterface,” said Al Wynant, Eventinterface Co-Founder and CEO. “We already offer attendees the option to upload details that can be used to verify check in. With the launch of Eventinterface 3.0 in June, this partnership will allow for a more streamlined and secure arrival experience for the attendee, and create greater efficiencies and cost-savings for the organizer.”
The platform will use attendee profile pictures to verify identity and registration status. It is up to the attendee if they want to participate in this check in option, and check in data is deleted by Zenus right after the event to protect the privacy of the attendees. The system is over 99% accurate and can be run on smartphones and tablets. It offers significant cost-savings over the traditional iBeacon or RFID technology for check in and tracking.
"Eventinterface always places the event planner at the center of attention by offering a full featured planning platform. As a result, Zenus can focus on providing Eventinterface with cutting edge facial recognition for conference and event check-in, that benefits the organizer and offers quick and secure event check-in for attendees. It is a win-win," said Panos Moutafis, Zenus President.
