RF IDeas Shines at VARTECH 2019

Location: Paradise Island, Bahamas

It was another big year for the leader in authentication and identification solutions at the channel's biggest show.

The weather was beautiful, the sea-life fascinating and the sands sparkled at the Atlantis on Paradise Island in the Bahamas, but the real excitement was happening inside as the latest and greatest technology took center stage on the CodeZone floor at VARTECH 2019 Sept 16-17.

RF IDeas, a Gold Sponsor, once again demonstrated their increasingly relevant and innovative solutions for secure access and identification. Headlining their product assortment was the pcProx Plus BLE reader, designed to authenticate mobile credentials for badge-less access control and sign-on. Demonstrated in conjunction with SafeTrust mobile wallet (also an attendee), the BLE reader uses Bluetooth low energy to read credentials directly from a mobile device, adding a layer of security and convenience to applications like SSO, attendance management, secure print, POS and more. Mobile credentials are the future of authentication and RF IDeas will be ready for the next level.

This year, VARTECH brought together over 100 vendors and ISVs to present solutions in security, POS, ADC, mobility and more to nearly 800 attendees from VARs across the Americas. It was two packed days of networking, demonstrations, education, collaboration and thought leadership, with a little time for fun, great food and a cocktail or two.

The recent struggles of the northern Bahamian islands suffering from the devastation of Hurricane Dorian loomed over the weeks ahead of VARTECH, inspiring BlueStar to set up a fundraiser on site and through the BlueStar Events app to raise money for relief efforts. In just those two days, attendees contributed over $13K to the cause.

Post-show, RF IDeas encouraged attendees to sign up as ENGAGE partner to stay current with RF IDeas products, EOL notices, training opportunities and potential leads in their area. 

Next up for RF IDeas is an appearance on the final stop in the Innovative Solutions Tour in Anaheim, CA on November 6. Details to register are linked below and attendance is free for VARs.
