    Hello,

    One of the banks is asking if we can provide RFID solution for their VIP customers. Can you advise briefly on your solution. Also, what are the components involved and the cost for the same. Do you manufacture the components or have it outsourced.

    One question was if the VIP customer carries an RFID card in his wallet, will the reader have 100% identification?. Also, how will the bank staff know specifically which is the customer incase there are two customers walking at the same time. Is there any facial recognition required to integrate with the RFID solution?.

    Kind regards
