RFID Hotel and ID&C Enhances Strategic Collaboration with Vingcard for RFID Credentials in US and Canada

Providers approved to supply RFID credentials for Vingcard Locks


[Florida xx, 2024] – Avery Products Corporation is thrilled to announce an expansion of a strategic collaboration between its hospitality-focused businesses, RFID Hotel and ID&C, and Vingcard an ASSA ABLOY company. This collaboration cements Avery as an approved vendor within the US and Canada for RFID credentials, including key cards and wristbands, enhancing the convenience, security, and access control solutions for the hospitality industry.

Vingcard, hospitality’s leading provider of hotel access solutions has now accredited Florida-based businesses ID&C and RFID Hotel as approved vendors of RFID cards and wristbands. RFID wearables have gained immense popularity within the hospitality sector for their ease of use, offering guests and staff convenient access to hotel rooms, amenities, and even payment options for food and beverages.

Based in Florida, both ID&C and RFID Hotel are subsidiaries of Avery Products Corporation specializing in crafting customized RFID cards and wristbands embedded with microchips programmed by hotels to unlock doors and access various facilities. RFID access control has become a standard in the industry, surpassing the less secure magnetic strip technology for door locks in hotels.

Craig Bennett, General Manager of ID&C and RFID Hotel, expressed his enthusiasm for this collaboration, saying, “RFID has become ubiquitous for access control at hotels and resorts, offering cutting-edge security and ease-of-use. With a number of fast-paced technological changes in the industry, we are excited for this partnership to enhance the experience for our shared customers.”

RFID keys and wristbands are utilized by hotel brands such as Marriott, Hilton, and Hyatt. Both ID&C and RFID Hotel have the capability to encode Vingcard’s proprietary licenses directly onto its RFID credentials, a process performed at its facilities in Tampa and Bradenton, Florida.

 George Winker, VP of Sales at Vingcard commented, “Providing our customers with the latest in security technology is a top priority alongside our goal of ensuring that properties have the flexibility needed to adapt solution offerings according to specific business needs. We look forward to passing on the benefits of this expanded collaboration to hoteliers as they aim to better tailor experiences in line with the evolving preferences of today’s guests.”
