Beyond hospitality ID: Databac shows smart solutions at Hostelco

hospitality ID

Hospitality ID enables businesses to identify every person present on their premises. Whether at hotels, restaurants, conference centres, spas, leisure centres or indoor or outdoor venues, some kind of identification system needs to be in place.


Hostelco, Barcelona, Spain, 16-19 April 2018, Stand 640

Databac is using Hostelco to show solutions that take a smart approach to identification. A combination of products will demonstrate how to generate credentials and build in functionality for access, time keeping, data capture and other custom requirements, to create secure, integrated solutions.

From Matica, Databac will launch the new Espresso II desktop ID card printer, perfect for fast and affordable personalisation of plastic cards. Easy-to-use, it can print and encode professional-looking keycards and ID badges in full colour. They are also perfect to produce gift cards and access cards to spas and gymnasiums, and to brand delegate badges for any conferences a hotel hosts for its clients.

For conferences and events, the Matica 3600 XL will demonstrate retransfer printing technology that offers superior quality event badge printing on non-standard, wide-format cards. These oversized cards may serve as event passes or tickets, as well as name tags to identify regular attendees, VIPs or staff, while facilitating security and access control.

For spaces that use wristbands, Databac’s RFID wristband printer is designed for fast personalisation of Tyvek bands. Ideal for theme parks, festivals, camp sites and sports clubs, this smart little printer will show just how quickly it can print and encode in-built technologies for time & attendance and access control.

Wristbands, as well as cards and keyfobs can be programmed to open and close the GAT ECO.Side Lock. Unveiled at the show for the first time in Spain, it is the world’s first battery lock to include a 10-year battery, alarm function and complete in-locker mounting. With no external door parts, GAT ECO.Side Lock is vandalism-proof and fulfils the high aesthetic demands of today’s gyms, spas, wellness centres and leisure centres. Databac is Gantner’s official partner in Spain.

For ecologically-minded businesses, Databac will display its full range of eco credentials. Ranging from cards to keyfobs, these will be shown in wood, bamboo, corn and recycled materials, without compromising on security or functionality.

As always, Databac’s complete range of cards, name badges and wearing accessories will be on display.
