Advantages for venues

The TAS12-AS1 is one of several intelligent admission products that we offer. All of our intelligent admission products integrate with Alvarado’s GateLink10 admission control software.

The TAS12-AS1 is a pedestal solution that allows patrons to self-validate entry credentials. This frees ticket takers to monitor multiple lanes, and perform valuable customer service functions such as greeting patrons.

Interaction with the TAS12-AS1 is intuitive for users. A bright color TFT touchscreen display provides clear visual instructions to patrons. The screen can also be used to generate revenue through on screen advertising. LEDs on the rear of the device notify attendants of presented credential status (good/bad), and identify when specialty tickets, such as a child, senior or VIP, are presented. The TAS12-AS1’s compact form factor requires minimal floor space for installation. The barrier free design provides venues the flexibility to create custom sized passageways suitable for comfort of patrons and the needs of the venue.

Alvarado takes a hands on approach to projects and you benefit from our expertise and years of experience. We will help with layout and product placement, provide operational recommendations and work with you to achieve solutions for the unique aspects of your application.
