FairMate turnstile: cooperation with Kaba agreed

dimedis is cooperating with Kaba – New development of the turnstile FairMate TurnStyle – First customer is Koelnmesse

Cologne, July 5, 2016 – The software company dimedis has introduced a turnstile for the entrance and visitor management solution FairMate. The new entrance solution will be integrated into the product portfolio under the name FairMate TurnStyle. The new turnstile is the result of a cooperation between dimedis and two other companies: the basis of FairMate TurnStyle was provided by Scheidt & Bachmann and the necessary inner workings were delivered by the safety and entrance system company Kaba. The technical design, planning and implementation were performed by dimedis. The first trade fair to profit from this cooperation was the International Hardware Fair in Cologne.

In future the partnership with Kaba will provide dimedis with the ability to develop further turnstiles tailored to customer requirements.

Werner Obermann, Head of Trade Fair Solutions at dimedis, regarding this cooperation: "With the new FairMate turnstile, we can now offer our customers yet another entrance technology. In Kaba we have found a well-known and capable partner who shares our product philosophy and implemented this project with great passion in a very short time. The new FairMate turnstile is not only elegant and robust but by using the latest scanning technology on the market also offers the quickest access every achieved by FairMate. The concept is based on existing turnstile technology redesigned with the aim of achieving the fastest possible access. Thanks to the ability to produce the corresponding badge at the same time during entrance to fairs reserved for trade visitors, we have succeeded in producing a remarkable innovation. Besides classic QR codes, FairMate TurnStyle is also able to read mobile tickets, smartphone tickets and tickets with NFC technology. When the entry request was successful, both the visitor and the service personnel receive a clear audio-visual signal immediately."

Christoph Knopf, sales representative and partner support manager at Kaba: "We are really pleased that we have been able to contribute our expertise to the development of FairMate, the leading entrance and visitor management solution from dimedis, and thus, together with dimedis, develop a good customer solution."
