The ((rfid))-Windshield Label Global UHF from Schreiner PrinTrust is an indispensable element of the innovative APCOA Flow application. APCOA, Europe’s leading parking facility manager, offers this digital platform for smart parking in 200 parking garages across Germany. The service includes contactless entry and exit, automatic billing and app-based supporting services. With Schreiner PrinTrust’s ((rfid))-Windshield Label Global UHF, APCOA has opted for utmost reliability and takes the expert for security and authentication on board as a partner for all components relating to the label.
When clients approach the parking garage barrier in their cars, the barrier automatically opens via the wireless technology of the RFID chip in the label and the system subsequently debits the parking fee using the client’s stored credit card details. Users have the option of either permanently applying the RFID label to the inside of their windshield or using it on a mobile carrier card.
Solutions Provider for Parking
APCOA was seeking an RFID solution tailored to this specific use case, as standard labels reach their limits here. In order to receive all components, including the carrier card and client mailer, from a one-stop-shop, APCOA wanted to implement the project with a single provider of the total solution. The company selected Schreiner PrinTrust, one of the leading experts in RFID solutions for parking applications. APCOA had already purchased the previous product generation of the chip from Schreiner PrinTrust and benefited from the partner’s many years of experience in other projects as well.
Long-Lasting and Tough Labels
Applications in the area of smart parking make special demands on an RFID label. Schreiner PrinTrust’s ((rfid))-Windshield Label Global UHF satisfies these demands because it was specifically developed for use in automatic vehicle identification and for mailing to clients. It is highly resistant against heat and sunlight, which is vital to ensuring long life on the inside of windshields. APCOA clients benefit from the high UHF RFID performance of the chip in all weather conditions. Due to invisibly integrated, full-surface light protection, the chip—unlike cheap standard labels—is fully functional even when exposed to direct sunlight. Data security is ensured as well. The client’s details of the personalized RFID chip are not stored on the chip itself, but, via an allocated individual UID, securely deposited in the back end of a database. The ((rfid))-Windshield Label Global UHF is produced in the high-security environment certified according to ISO 14298 und NASPO Security Printing Standards at Schreiner Group in Oberschleissheim.
All Components from a One-Stop Shop
As a one-stop shop Schreiner PrinTrust offers the entire project – from the label to the carrier card to the letter shop. This massively reduces the client’s coordination requirements and ensures the high quality of all components.
The ((rfid))-Windshield Label Global UHF is both easy to handle in the mailing process and convenient for the end user because an additional adhesive coating ensures reliable retention on the mailer combined with easy removability.
