Front Gate Solutions launches ScanOne™ Access Control Software; Solution to be used at Lollapalooza and Austin City Limits Music Festival

July 23, 2006 (PRLEAP.COM) Entertainment News
Front Gate Solutions of Austin, TX today announced the launch of its ScanOne ™ Access Control Solution. The application will be at the core of an extensive gate control management system that will be used at the 2006 Lollapalooza Music Festival in Chicago’s Grant Park August 4-6. A similar setup will be implemented for the three-day Austin City Limits Music Festival in September– an event that attracted over 200,000 music fans last year.

“Counterfeiters look for opportunities to beat the system,” offers Mellie Price, President and founder of Front Gate Solutions. “We have a responsibility to provide the highest level of security to our clients, which is why we are constantly developing tools like ScanOne™.”

Access Control Systems are used to both prevent unauthorized access to events and to monitor trends in entry activity. ScanOne™ has been designed to work in tandem with Front Gate Solutions’ AdmitOne™ box office solution and Backstage™ event management application.

“Counterfeit tickets are a common problem in the festival business,” notes Michelle Alldredge of Capital Sports & Entertainment, producers of Lollapalooza and Austin City Limits Music Festival. “We are excited to implement a solution for our upcoming festivals that will both give us real time attendance counts and keep holders of counterfeit tickets from entering our shows.”
