Security and comfort for high-ranking decision makers at the St. Gallen symposium thanks to contactless LEGIC® technology
LEGIC multi-application technology allowed different applications to be combined on a single card and enabled the participants to move around the university grounds easily and safely. After identification and registration at the entrance, visitors could use their identification badge at the administration terminals to sign up for the lectures and workshops at the symposium themselves. Waiting times were avoided thanks to the fully automated processes. The staff could therefore devote themselves entirely to looking after guests. In addition, as the organiser, the International Students' Committee benefited from a better overview of the participants in the lecture programme as a whole. The cards were unanimously judged to be easy and intuitive to use.
"Opportunities for further use of the cards, e.g. as keys for electronic lockers or a medium for social networking functions among the participants, are currently under consideration," says Arjun Muralidharan, IT strategy director for the St. Gallen symposium.
Progressive technology for a top international event
With their decision to choose LEGIC, the International Students' Committee from the University St. Gallen also attested to the event's overall high level of quality from a technological perspective. The St. Gallen symposium sees itself as a leading contributor to key issues in management, the entrepreneurial environment and the interfaces between economics, politics and civil society. For almost 40 years, the symposium has been conceived, planned and organised by the International Students' Committee (ISC) and has established itself as an internationally renowned event in economic, political and social circles.
