Choose Your Session Scanning Method

Staffed Vs. Self-Scanning

Staffed Session Scanning Using Handheld Scanners and iPads:

In this approach, event staff members manually scan attendee badges or tickets using handheld scanners or iPads equipped with scanning software. This technology aids staff in confirming attendee identities, checking their registration status, and ensuring they have proper access to specific sessions or event areas. This method prioritizes security, allowing staff to control entry into sub-events based on attendee access, room capacity, and more.

Staffless Self-Scanning Using an Event Kiosk:

This method involves setting up self-check-in kiosks at sub-events entrances, enabling attendees to scan their badges or tickets swiftly. These kiosks are equipped with scanners capable of reading the barcode or QR code on attendees' tickets or badges. Once scanned, the kiosk automatically verifies the attendee's registration status and records their attendance. This approach offers a high level of convenience for attendees, eliminating the need to wait in line for check-in.

The Benefits of Session Scanning

At Choose 2 Rent, we recognize the vital role that data-collection devices play in events, enabling informed decisions and enhancing event planning strategies. Our session scanning solutions offer more than just efficient attendee check-ins and check-outs. Depending on the software employed by event organizers, they yield valuable insights that can drive continuous improvement in event management year after year.

Access Control: Ensuring the security and seamless experience of all attendees remains a paramount concern for event organizers. Through session scanning, you can swiftly and accurately verify attendee identities, guaranteeing that only authorized individuals gain access to events and sub-events.

Track Attendees: Our systems facilitate the creation and management of sessions within larger events, simplifying attendee navigation and aiding event staff in attendance monitoring. This feature also empowers you to track attendance and collect data on the popularity of specific sub-events, which can inform future event enhancements.

Analyze Data: Data analytics stands as another cornerstone of our session scanning systems. By gathering data on attendee demographics, event participation, and more, you gain a deeper understanding of your audience. This insight enables tailored event planning that aligns with attendee preferences. Additionally, this data serves as a valuable tool for assessing the effectiveness of marketing efforts.

Track Capacity: Event safety and managing room capacity represent top priorities for organizers. With session scanning, you gain real-time attendance monitoring capabilities, ensuring that room capacity limits are not exceeded. In the event of potential capacity issues, quick identification and immediate action can be taken to safeguard attendees.
