PassKit & codeREADr Integrate for Verifiable Patron Check-Ins
Digital QR passes allow for contactless attendance tracking; Encouraging patrons to register in advance and use their digital pass onsite to receive rewards
As businesses restart in-person operations, there is great concern about how to meet regulations for track and trace measures. Spurred by the request of BOXPARK in London, UK, PassKit turned to codeREADr to fulfill the need for contactless barcode scanning.
Roger Wade, Founder and CEO of BOXPARK commented:
“Initially we were concerned about meeting the [UK] Government requirements which were announced just a week before restaurants, pubs and bars were allowed to reopen, but we quickly identified a smart solution to use our existing membership card as a mechanism for capturing the required data.
We are extremely proud of our digital BOXPARK Black Card solution. And this would not have been possible without the PassKit + CodeREADr integration. A solution that is seamless for both customers and our operational staff. Thanks to PassKit’s solution, we have enhanced the contactless experience for customers. Essentially, we created an incentive for them to register their details before they come to our sites. It’s an exciting process which is already working amazingly well.”
Watch the integration in action at BOXPARK
Businesses use PassKit to extend their mobile reach by integrating Apple Wallet and Google Pay passes into their customer experiences. Patrons then use passes for digital coupons, loyalty cards, membership cards, entry tickets, and more. With PassKit, conveniently store the passes in Apple Wallet and Google Pay for contactless payment. An employee then scans the displayed barcode using the codeREADr mobile app. Using only the built-in camera of an Apple or Android smartphone, tablet, or dedicated scanning device, codeREADr will instantly validate the Pass against the PassKit database. The appropriate information is then stored on PassKit’s servers for review at any time.
