“Are you ready for today,” asks Jerry, your operations manager.

You give him a nod to acknowledge that you are ready while he hands you today’s guest list.

But, your nod quickly changes once you see the list.

You’ve got a lot of people coming to your property today – not just everyday customers either.

“We’ve got to stay sharp today,” you tell Jerry with a concerned look on your face.

Things didn’t go too well the last time you had this many people visiting your property in one day.

Several people made it on your property, and to secure locations, without proper credentials or with false ones.

But frankly, managing your guest credentials and access is a challenge every day.

Your boss, you, and Jerry all know that it’s a process that needs immediate fixing.

Do you have too many different credentials to organize, memorize, and control?

Do you worry that unauthorized people will gain access to areas that they shouldn’t?

These anxieties exist for many leaders working diligently to run a world-class operation.

We don’t want you to stress about it anymore, though.

We’ve got your back on this, and believe we can help shed some light on how to foolproof this process.

Fail-safe credentials can be produced and validated using credentialing management software.

They can do so much more too!

Keep reading; we’re going to show you just how much more.

Does your operation get bogged down from investigating unwanted people entering your property with improper credentials? Or worse, people with no credentials at all?

While most credentials are designed and created for certain access locations and times, they’re not created for a specific individual.

We’re sure you’re aware that this creates an opportunity for others to produce counterfeits. Rather than getting denied access to your property, people are able to get access to private locations they didn’t pay for.

The inability to manage areas with too many patrons is another problem we know you’re faced with. Your capacity limits cannot be maintained, simply because technology to do so has never existed.

Most credentials are designed and created for certain access locations and times, but not for a specific person.

This opens up the door for anyone to produce counterfeits. Rather than getting denied, guests are evasively sliding under the radar and receiving VIP treatment they didn’t pay for.

Another problem with current credentialing methods is the inability to manage areas with too many patrons. Capacity limits cannot be maintained simply because the technology has not existed, resulting in unwanted chaos.

We never claimed to be scientists, so we won’t start now. You can stop searching for the cure for safe and secure events, because we already know how to beef up your event security.

The peace of mind you’re looking for comes from prevention and being proactive, period. There’s no bucket of ice involved. However, you’re not getting off that easy.

We challenge you - yes you - to step your event security ‘game’ up and use three tools every event security professional already uses to execute effectively. Do what the pros do.

It’s here now. Oh yes. It’s in full motion and the fans are coming in droves.

Whether you skipped out on perfecting the perfect caipirinha to catch the World Cup in Brazil, or passed on the coveted ticket to enjoy it from the comfort of your couch…there’s no doubt it’s in full swing.

From our assessment we thought it’d be a good idea to pass on attending - let alone based on all the safety concerns - terrorism, trafficking, and rioting. Not to mention (Well, to mention) many of the stadiums weren’t on par for the goliath event.

With eight departments and 12 different ways for visitors to request credentials, keeping safety and security a priority can be challenging within itself. The trick, well that’s the double edged sword! You’re probably familiar with what comes next.

Credential boards. Yes, the infamous boards have a purpose, but look like a page from your latest almanac. A field of land mines full of intricacies and 50 different ‘critical’ credential types you MUST remember. Who has time for that? Better yet, who the heck could even remember all of them?
