Connect&GO Partners with Alvarado to Provide a Fully Integrated Access Control Experience

March 31, 2022


March 31, 2022 – Montreal, Quebec – Connect&GO, a world leader in integrated operations management solutions and RFID technology, announced today a partnership with AlvaradoTM, dormakaba Group, the leading U.S. manufacturer of entry control solutions, to give attractions operators modern and sophisticated access control options.

The direct integration between Connect&GO’s all-in-one operations management platform, Konnect, and Alvarado’s portfolio of traditional and contactless entry hardware solutions will allow operators to offer safe and frictionless access control experiences that provide rich data insights in real-time. With this fully integrated experience, operators can easily view accurate and up-to-date data on attendance and traffic directly in the Konnect platform, which can be immediately leveraged to make operational decisions that keep guests safer and drive revenue.

Konnect is the most flexible and easy-to-use operations management platform that uses powerful data insights to drive revenue and increase guest engagement. The all-in-one platform seamlessly integrates e-Commerce, point-of-sale, food & beverage, RFID access control and cashless payments using a proprietary Virtual Wallet to compile all guest data in one place. By allowing guests to purchase tickets easily online, or at the front gate, and then quickly check-in when they arrive greatly reduces friction points in their visit. Flexible access control options allow guests to quickly scan to enter the park and make cashless payments throughout an attraction. Data is retained each time a guest scans, so operators learn more about guest preferences and behavior which helps drive revenue and maximize guest engagement.

For nearly 60 years, Alvarado has provided products and solutions that protect assets and control the flow of people. These includes intelligent optical “fast lanes,” barrier-free pedestals, traditional tripod turnstiles, and wall-mounted units that control entry to VIP areas.

“We value working with top-tier solutions to deliver the best for our customers,” said Dominic Gagnon, CEO of Connect&GO. “Alvarado is a trusted leader in secure park entry, and we are thrilled to bring their world-class products into our Konnect ecosystem to deliver a unified and powerful system for access control.”
