At the main entrance, queues and blockages form as mothers and fathers, laden with sports bags, food, baby strollers, and children in their arms, try unsuccessfully to find their membership cards.
Another recurring situation is the frustration of older members. They have accessed the club without any problems throughout their lives, and now they struggle because their fingerprint doesn’t work, they’ve forgotten their card at home, or they don’t know how to use the mobile app.
It’s also common to come across unfamiliar faces. Many people use the facilities only in the summer, others have recently joined, and many have paid for a day pass. However, this forces the security staff to randomly request membership cards or ID numbers from those who are peacefully eating or sunbathing. This proves bothersome for members and tedious for security personnel who could be engaged in other tasks.
How to Improve Access Management in Your Club?
For this purpose, it is essential that the system provides convenience to all users, enhances control and security of the facilities, and, of course, is easy to integrate without representing a significant economic investment.
Facial Recognition Access System
Many sports clubs across Spain have embraced Veridas’ facial recognition technology as their access control solution. Navarra has emerged as the leading autonomous community in this field, with eight of its most prestigious sports clubs, including Club Tenis Pamplona, Ciudad Deportiva Amaya, and Agrupación Deportiva San Juan, already offering this innovative form of access. Why? Because of the convenience it provides and its user-friendly simplicity.
The use of this technology is straightforward. The member simply needs to give consent to the club, which then registers them based on their photo stored in its database. Automatically, once this process is completed, the member can comfortably enter the club through facial recognition via terminals installed at access points, eliminating the need for membership cards or QR codes.
This way, all access information is collected and centralized on a single platform, and it’s possible to install facial recognition terminals in different spaces: main entrances, gyms, paddle tennis courts, or even spas.
The entry process becomes swift and seamless. No longer are there queues at the main entrance. Parents loaded with bags can access quickly and without friction. Older individuals are delighted to access so comfortably, feeling welcomed.
