ROCHESTER, N.Y., Sept. 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Document Security Systems, Inc. (NYSE MKT: DSS; "DSS"), a leading developer and integrator of secure cloud computing and security printing technologies, today announced that MedTech Wristbands, a leading provider of wrist identification and access control solutions designed for the leisure and entertainment markets, has signed an agreement to use DSS's AuthentiSuite Technologies. Financial terms of the three year agreement were not disclosed.
MedTech Wristband customers will use DSS's smart phone authentication system, AuthentiGuard, to provide a variety of additional features to their customers.
Ranjie Singh, President of MedTech stated, "MedTech is excited to be partnering with DSS and its AuthentiSuite line of authentication solutions – AuthentiGuard, AuthentiMark, and AuthentiSite. These technologies will continue to open new opportunities and offer expanded features for our customers in the event management industry."
MedTech customers will now be able to easily identify counterfeit event wristbands, while at the same time offer features never before seen in the event management industry. The combination of AuthentiGuard with wristbands enables smart phone check-in to events, easy management of VIP area check-in and access, and allows event managers to limit, manage and monitor access to promotional or secured areas.
Other capabilities that AuthentiGuard brings to MedTech customers are:
- Integrate cashless and credit card free transactions at the event
- Integrate social media promotions
- Provide real-time event reports back to clients
Additionally, MedTech customers will be able to use the technology to establish links of parents to children at an event. In the case where a child gets separated from the parent, officials will be able to read the child's wristband with a smart phone and immediately call the parent.
Robert Bzdick, President of DSS said, "We are pleased to have signed MedTech. The versatile applications of the AuthentiSuite Technology are easily adapted to fit the unique needs of the event management market and provide MedTech with expanded benefits for their customers. Additionally, our core competencies in security print and credential production open opportunities for an expanded relationship between DSS and MedTech."
