New Zebra RFID Card Printers Help Vail Resorts Improve Skier and Snowboarder Experience

Vail Resorts will use handheld RF scanners to detect lift passes through skiers' coats, providing an easier, more convenient experience without the need for the swiping or barcode scanning of passes. The new RFID-enabled system consists of a Zebra Gen 2 RFID card and Zebra P330i passive UHF RFID card printer, which was selected based on ease of use, speed and reliability. (more here)

We say: What would make this card even better? Duraflex technology for the best RFID card durability on the market.

Hospital to require IDs, driver’s license information for night visitors

Visitors to Greenville Memorial Hospital will be required to have an identification badge to see ailing friends and relatives at night, beginning Wednesday, as part of a plan to keep unwanted people out.

Under the FAST-PASS program, visitors to the main hospital from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. must have the badge, said security director Shawn Reilly. Both visitors and patients in the emergency room will be required to have the badge at any time, he said.

The $15,000 system isn’t the result of a specific incident, he said, but part of an ongoing process to enhance security. (more here)

We say: It's great to see a security team acting before there is an incident! Too often good security is tabled to save a few dollars until there is a major problem.
