IAAPA 2016: Accesso launches next-generation touch-screen wearable
POSTED 15 Nov 2016 . BY Alice Davis
Prism is next-generation virtual queuing and cashless payment wearable from Accesso
Accesso has unveiled a new virtual queuing wearable with messaging, park photography and queuing capabilities. The hardwearing, durable hi-res LCD screen wristband, Prism, is the result of Accesso’s journey to find a future-proof, standalone device that’s easy to use for guests and operators alike.

Prism, from the brand’s LoQueue line, supports both premium queuing and queueless business models, tapping into the latest technologies available on the market.

“There were a few basic consumer factors we had to keep in mind,” said Accesso CEO Steve Brown. “No one likes waiting in line, no one wants to worry about wallets or deal with cash in their pocket, and no one wants to fumble to get access to something with combinations or complicated codes. Consumers also want an easy way to keep track of their photos.”

With Prism, guests can swipe the touchscreen to take a place in a virtual queue, buy food from a kiosk, receive updates or promotional offers from the operator and manage their ride and park photography. It can also be used to allow access to the park. From an operators point of view, Prism collects data on guest behavior in real time, which can be used for marketing strategies and to gather feedback to improve guest experience.

The device is Bluetooth, RFID and NFC enabled.
