Access Control & Scanning


Access Control
& Scanning

Information on access control in real-time is a crowning feature of Future Ticketing that will relieve pressure on staff and fans on match day. Our scanners read barcodes ‘live’ at your event to prevent fraudulent tickets from gaining entry.

Scanners alert staff to different ticket types such as concession or VIP tickets. You can create permissions to allow selected users, including Police or Health and Safety Officers, to log-on and view live scanning figures by entry point or by individual scanner.


Smooth entry to an event makes for happy staff and happy customers.

If your event or venue does not need a permanent turnstile solution, we offer you the option of renting or buying our mobile handheld scanners. They work across 3G, 4G, 5G or wifi.

Our scanners operate using our Future Ticketing app and are easy to set-up and use.

Scanners can be set up to collate information for the whole venue, by entrance gate or by turnstile. For more robust tracking you can scan the customer as they enter or leave. Additionally, our scanners link to particular products, for example, tickets for the North Stand, can only be scanned by machines programmed for the North Stand.

Once a customer is scanned in and their barcode read, their details are sent directly to your dashboard in real time. This cloud-based information allows you to monitor audience entries from anywhere as they are happening.

If a single-entry barcode is scanned twice, the scanner alerts the staff member, refuses entry and downloads details of the entrance point, time of entry and which scanner the barcode has already passed through.

External barcodes from other programmes or platforms can simply be uploaded onto your Future Ticketing dashboard and scanned using our scanners.
