New visitor registration and access control system unveiled at European Commission

It is fast, fully automated and more secure: the European Commission this week completely revamped its system for registration, badge printing and access control for its Visitors Centre. The new solution developed jointly by Wiz-Team and our partner Fielddrive uses kiosks which integrate Wiz-Team’s event management software Event-Works, high-speed printers and an ID/passport reader to create an all-in-one and seamless self-check-in experience. In 2022, these ten brand-new kiosks will manage the check-in of more than 500’000 visitors to the European Commission!

But how does it work exactly? First, Wiz-Team’s visitor management application V-PASS to register visitors online.  Through a customised API visitor data is sent to the kiosks, provided by Fielddrive in preparation for the arrival of new Commission guests. Next, the kiosks, equipped with high-speed printers and passport readers, validate visitor information upon arrival, AND print on the spot smart RFID enabled access badges fit with customised building access rights.

This automated and integrated approach not only optimises check-in at the doors of the Commission, but it drastically improves the data management experience – reducing manual data entry; which means reduced errors, increased data protection, and higher data integrity.

It’s the first time that Wiz-Team and Fielddrive have offered jointly delivered this innovative solution, which will benefit many more clients in the future who need fast, automated, and secure check-in experiences for visitor management.

Fielddrive is a strategic partner of Wiz-Team, specialised in helping event planners around the world to manage visitor flows with the fastest check-in, highest security, and live analytics.

As the founder and CEO of Wiz-Team, Johann has been a part of this adventure long before the start of the organisation 10 years ago. This dynamic and fast-growing company was born out of gap in the market Johann and his colleagues experienced as event managers in the early 2000s.  With little tools available to effectively manage the demands and challenges of data management for complex events, they decided to build their own solution. 

Shortly thereafter Johann created Event-Works and later Wiz-Team with the vision to deliver world class digital solutions built by event professionals for event professionals. From Wiz-Team headquarters in his hometown Lausanne, he oversees a global network of developers and experts, who support the organisations mission to empower event professionals through smart, intuitive, and innovative digital solutions. 

Johann’s expertise in event data management is outstanding.  He has delivered innovative event management solutions to every Olympic Games edition since 2004 alongside a range of other international events. Having worked across many sectors, including sports federations, the medical congress industry, corporate companies, and government agencies, he has acquired a wide-ranging background and an exceptional experience in various types and sizes of events. Before he set up Wiz-Team, Johann specialised in web and database development, as well as project management in the luxury industry, and teaching.

Johann holds an MBA in international management and speaks English, French and some German. In his spare time, he enjoys scuba diving, discovering the world on a motorbike, gaming and exploring new technologies.
