PrehKeyTec GmbH Germany PrehKeyTec GmbH is a leading international manufacturer of premium quality data entry solutions. We design and produce specific keyboards and scanners “Made in Germany”. By integrating RFID directly into the keyboard you can increase your efficiency by speeding up processes. PrehKeyTec will show and present integrated RFID at their booth J11. What makes your products / services stand out? At the Dubai Airport show as well as at the PTE in Paris this year, PrehKeyTec successfully presented the internationally used and well-known check-in keyboard MCI 111 A which provides directly integrated RFID. The new function speeds up processes in passenger handling, which is one of the biggest challenges in aviation. By integrating RFID into the keyboard, contactless tags can be read at check-in and at the same time space on the counter can be saved. RFID technology automates data acquisition and thus significantly reduces manual effort and erroneous data entries. With a built-in RFID module, passport data can be read in accordance with country-specific regulations. Our all-in-one solution is ergonomic and features programmable keys. An integrated RFID reader speeds up data processing and gives you even more scope when reading data from passports and ID documents. The durable keyboard MCI 111 A offers both reliability and flexibility. Together, both solutions are the perfect complement to your check-in or wherever efficient passenger handling is crucial. What brings you to the EXPO this year? Asia-Pacific is a very important market for PrehKeyTec, and the EXPO is a solution provider in the airport and airline sector covering this market. That makes it the perfect place for us to show our products and talk to people. FTE APEX not only gives us the possibility to increase the awareness of our products, but also helps us reach key decision makers and demonstrate the benefits of our products live on site. Our most important goals are to reach new contacts and to deepen existing partnerships. So far, we’ve reached these goals every year when we go to the EXPO and after a three-year break, we are more than happy to be back at last and fully motivated to convince visitors of our products face to face. Why should visitors come to your stand and what can they expect to see? Visitors coming to our stand can look forward to seeing our MCI 111 A check-in keyboard with integrated RFID laser live in action. RFID is a future-oriented element that PrehKeyTec will continue to advance. The laser technology for engraving layouts is a unique and useful function not only for baggage handling but also for air traffic control. Furthermore, visitors will experience our products as extremely reliable and durable. Customized solutions do not leave customer requests unfulfilled and enable any language layout or font. Visitors at our stand are provided with high-quality information about our products and solutions and have the opportunity to talk to our experienced specialists, so that no questions remain unanswered at the end of the day. What do you think is the biggest lesson that the industry will take away from the COVID-19 crisis? COVID-19 hit all industries massively and the airport and airline sector were not spared either. This shows that there is hardly any such thing as a crisis-proof industry, even though it seemed for a long time that certain industries could barely be affected by crises. However, PrehKeyTec is ready and motivated to be able to be there for its customers without any restrictions as far as the pandemic allows.
