GANTNER’S CONTACTLESS TECHNOLOGY
Gantner Electronics is continuing to roll out its contactless technology system for
use in health and fitness clubs. Focusing on a microchip that can be integrated
into a membership card or a wristband, the system can be used to make
payments throughout a health club – from the car park to vending machines.
If cash sums are credited, the chip works like a wallet for internal club usage –
just hold the card or wristband up to a vending machine that’s been fitted with a
receiver and buy products with no need for cash. The chip can also be used as a
data carrier, with a range of software solutions for membership administration.
