VIZpin Joins AFS; Will Be at SUCCEED! ‘Your Phone Is Your Key’

(OAKLAND, CA, LANCASTER, PA, February 26, 2019)  – The Association of Fitness Studios (AFS) today proudly announced and welcomed VIZpin to its membership ranks as well as onto the SUCCEED! Expo floor plan as a valued exhibitor.

VIZpin features an innovative, smartphone-based access control solution for studios and small gyms enabling ownership to grant and revoke access to anyone, any time, from anywhere. The company is eager to share with the fitness industry this unique step forward that has been proven to save time and money, as well as improve operations in various markets including QSR and retail.    

Highlighted by convenience, security, and affordability, VIZpin lets you provide access to anyone with a smartphone at the tap of a button without having to worry about cards, FOBs, or remembering PIN numbers – your phone does it all. It works even when a network is unavailable. If a user doesn’t have a smartphone, they can use a VIZpin FOB.

“Once again, technology comes knocking on our door, this time almost literally,” said Josh Leve, AFS founder and CEO. “VIZpin is a complete solution, perfect for doors, gates and latches, using Cloud Management Tools and Smartphone Apps to ensure reliable performance. We welcome them to AFS and SUCCEED!”

People share cards, FOBs, and PIN numbers, but not their phones, making VIZpin inherently more secure. In addition, every VIZpin smartphone credential is heavily encrypted and works without connecting to your local network eliminating the possibility of data hacking.

“The fitness studio and small gym markets are ideal for our solution because of the desire for controlled access by most operators,” said Wendi Grinnell, Vice President at VIZpin. “SUCCEED! provides a fantastic opportunity to bring our solution to the AFS audience.”

VIZpin provides all the benefits of a managed access control system and costs about the same as a keypad system. There are no network support or ISP costs, and the cloud-based system ensures you have the latest features and enhancements without hardware upgrades. Plus, VIZpin smartphone credentials cost just pennies.
