Crowd control and stage barrier company Mojo Barriers has formed a partnership with contactless payment and access provider Intelligent Venue Solutions (IVS).
The partnership follows the launch of Mojo Barriers’ new Gatekepper 2.0 turnstile – a temporary turnstile system that links directly to a central computer giving real time capacity data. It incorporates full scanning capabilities and is compatible with any scanning methods.
IVS provides integrated contactless payment and access solutions to the live event sector, and has previously supplied festivals including the Isle of Wight festival, T in the Park, Barclaycard British Summer Time and Cornbury.
The Gatekeeper 2.0 will form part of IVS’ stock portfolio, giving both companies’ clients access to a one-stop solution combining IVS’ RFID or NFC technology with Mojo’s secure entrance suitable for main site access, camping, VIP enclosures or backstage areas. It can also be used at corporate events and exhibitions.
“The partnership with IVS will give UK festival and event organisers access to the Gatekeeper hardware and an already-compatible scanning partner, meaning lower set up fees and a quicker turnaround,” said Mojo Barriers’ UK general manager Kevin Thorborn. “We can adapt the system to integrate with any scanning technology from barcode to RFID and QR codes, and we work with scanning companies across Europe who use the system at their events.”
Paul Pike, IVS director, added: “The Gatekeeper is very complementary to our offering, meaning our scanners can be hosted on a secure turnstile where fixed readers are required. We’re always looking at ways to improve our offering and this partnership will be beneficial for both parties and ultimately our clients who are quickly embracing RFID and similar technology at their events.”
