Secure Scan Barcoding System
Bar Coding SecurityBar Codes can be printed on admission tickets or wristbands to increase security. For this application, a unique randomized bar code is assigned to each individual ticket. When the bar code of a ticket is ‘read’ by a scanner, a comparison is made between that number and a list of authorized numbers stored on a computer. If there is a match, entry is permitted; if there is no match, the bearer of the ticket is not permitted entry. In order to use a Bar Code for ticket admission, the event venue often has a sophisticated IT structure normally found at large sporting events, arenas and stadiums. Users are usually charged a processing fee of many dollars per ticket to pay for this set-up. Some companies are bringing this technology to smaller events but again must charge the customer a significant processing fee per ticket to run these IT systems.

PricesPrices for the SECURE SCAN system is very affordable. Your payment for the SECURE SCAN software covers the costs related to generating bar-codes on the tickets or wristbands, creating a CD with the specific randomized bar-codes and the SECURE SCAN software. Payment is for licensing of the SECURE SCAN software for a single use related to the one set of bar-codes provided with your order of the tickets/wristbands. On subsequent orders, ComTix will provide you with a new CD overwriting the barcode information which was previously installed on your computer and will replace that with a new set of randomized codes as well as the SECURE SCAN software. For a pricing example, the price for the SECURE SCAN software for 1,000 tickets is only $75 in addition to the price of the printed tickets. (Please Note: that the price of the SECURE SCAN software will vary with the quantity of tickets requested). You may use your own bar-code reader or purchase one from ComTix for $185 which you can re-use for all of your future events. If you choose to go with the App, our rates go from $20/device to $35/device, depending on how many devices you'll need for your event.
COMPARE & SAVEIf you use the services of a ticket event IT provider, the processing fees alone for 1,000 tickets would be thousands of dollars! Same security, same secure tickets or wristbands – HUGE difference in price!
