Intermec’s CN3 mobile computers with IP30 handheld
RFID readers have been chosen by Vail Resorts, a premier mountain resort
company, for its 2008-2009 season ski passes at Vail, Beaver Creek,
Breckenridge, Keystone and Heavenly.
The “easy scan” process makes getting through
lift queues easier and more convenient by using RFID technology to
give skiers and snowboarders holding 2008-2009 season passes the
option to keep their passes inside their jacket and be
automatically scanned by a Vail Resorts employee in the lift line.
“With Intermec RFID readers, we will be able to
significantly enhance our guest experience by making the lift line
process easier and more convenient for our guests who have
purchased any of our four season pass products – The Epic Pass,
The Colorado Pass, The Summit Pass or The Heavenly Pass,” said
Robert Urwiler, chief information officer for Vail Resorts.
The Intermec CN3 mobile computers with IP30
handheld RFID readers combine one of the smallest, most advanced,
rugged computers in the world with a powerful, modular passive UHF
RFID handle. The modularity of the IP30 and the RFID-readiness of
Intermec mobile computers mean the power of RFID can be literally
added now or at any point in the future.
The Intermec CN3 also integrates GPS and
Bluetooth to increase efficiency and safety by enabling hands-free
turn-by-turn voice navigation With 3G WAN and Cisco Compatible
WiFi and Bluetooth radios, users are connected with voice and
high-speed data (GSM/EDGE or CDMA/EV-DO) anywhere they go.
“Vail Resorts is a leader in providing
exceptional experiences for their guests,” said Intermec Vice
President of RFID, Ray Cronin. “We are pleased that Intermec CN3
mobile computers with IP30 RFID readers help continue that history
of excellence by giving their ski and snowboard guests the kind of
easy experience that will become the future of lift line
