NEW PRODUCT IDEAS
Precision Dynamics Corp. announced the launch of its patented Smart Band® Wristband System at the new Great Wolf Lodge in Concord, N.C.

The automated wristbands provide secure, keyless entry into the family’s hotel room, eliminating the need to carry keys or cards. Throughout the resort, RFID-enabled point-of-sale workstations enable guests to easily make cashless payments with the wristbands. Guests have the choice of using the RFID wristbands to make charges directly to their rooms or to set up a pre-funded account.
