Intellitix Technologies Inc., the company behind RFID access control and cashless payments technology used at Tomorrowland, BlizzCon, San Diego Comic-Con and others, has announced a majority-stake acquisition in CrowdBlink, a next generation event management platform.
The move comes as part of Intellitix’s effort to meet a market demand for lightweight event technology. CrowdBlink is already addressing this need with its all-in-one mobile platform, offering ticketing, access control, and cashless payments. But it’s what CrowdBlink has in the works for its next phase of development that attracted the attention of Intellitix’s CEO, Carlo Chiarello.
“I was very impressed with CrowdBlink,” said Chiarello. “They have an innovative product already, but once I saw what they had in their product roadmap I knew they were going to truly disrupt the industry.”
Jeff Jessamine, president of CrowdBlink, commented: “We will now be benefiting from a proven team and a global infrastructure that powers thousands of events, which means CrowdBlink can now scale very rapidly.
“CrowdBlink will be taking full advantage of these resources and expertise as we develop the platform and pave the way for the next generation of event technology.”
Jessamine will continue in his role as president of CrowdBlink.
CrowdBlink is an all-in-one event ticketing, access control, cashless payments, and guest engagement technology. It is deployed using mobile phones, RFID or NFC wristbands, or a combination.
