Toronto, Ontario (PRWEB) April 10, 2012
NBS Technologies Inc. is proud to announce the successful integration of their new open card format printer, the Javelin® FLX, into Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, Las Vegas. This printer will be used to issue all personalized rewards, temporary access, and key cards for the Hard Rock Hotel’s Backstage Pass loyalty program.
Launched in 2012, the Backstage Pass loyalty program, rewards guests for engaging in activities across the property, including gaming, dining, drink, partying and sleeping. The FLX card printers are a crucial part of the Hard Rock Hotel Vegas’ overhaul of their loyalty program. “The new reward card program has three tiers of access: General Admission, Entourage and Platinum Access. Each new tier reached requires a differently coded and personalized card,” says Mike Essig, IT Director at the Hard Rock Hotel. According to the Hard Rock Hotel’s website, each tier is based on a points system that will reward members for every dollar they spend with the card, whether they're gambling, dining or sleeping.
Another essential part of the Hard Rock Hotel program renovation was to make joining as effortless as possible. As a result NBS has provided the Hard Rock Hotel with multiple card printers to place throughout their facility, making it more convenient to get a Backstage Pass card. Using NBS’s easy-to-use Javelin® Dashboard software supplied with each printer, fonts, graphics and card layouts can be stored within the printer’s memory. "Without a cost-effective open card format printer such as the FLX, this would not be possible," says Philip Barton, the NBS Technologies General Manager with responsibility for Javelin printers. “Multiple Javelin® FLX printers can be connected directly to a casino’s network without the need to have a PC at each printer location. This means that card issuance is not confined to a single location.”
Furthermore, the Backstage Pass card can also act as a room key for members staying at Hard Rock’s Hotel. This feature is believed to be an industry first giving people a way to gain access to the program upon check-in.
The Backstage Pass card is now available at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, Las Vegas,as is the Javelin® FLX card printer from NBS Technologies Inc.
