Always on hand
There’s nothing like relaxing after a stressful week at work – and where better to do it than the South Pacific? Even more satisfying is when you don’t have to fly all the way to Fiji, Tahiti or Samoa to do so. You can also find tropical temperatures, metre-high palm trees and crystal-clear water in Germany, for instance in the 18,000 m2 Thermen & Badewelt Euskirchen. No need to worry about visas, vaccinations or flight tickets – a hand towel and bathing suit is all you need here, as transponders and IP addresses work behind the scenes to digitally control the bathing experience. The armband with a transponder chip given to each guest is an electronic data storage device. It gathers fundamental information – such as duration of stay – and ensures that guests can move about the spa without any cash and nevertheless still be able to pay for drinks, snacks, massages and the solarium. If the armband is held against a receiving device, the integrated RFID chips exchange all the necessary data. This means IT systems need to be fully operational during the opening hours – that’s up to 17 hours a day, 365 days a year. High availability is therefore an absolute must for the Wund Group, which operates thermal spas in Erding, Bad Wörishofen, Titisee, Sinsheim and Euskirchen.
