Databac enters strategic partnership with Data Management Inc.

TAB-Expiring Visitor Pass
TAB-Expiring Visitor Pass

ID specialist Databac ( has entered into a strategic partnership with Data Management, Inc., of Connecticut, US, to distribute its innovative Visitor Pass Solutions in Europe via its bases in the UK and Spain. First to be introduced will be Data Management’s self-expiring, one-piece visitor labels, which have already seen considerable success stateside, in healthcare, business, education and government.

The TAB-Expiring Visitor Pass changes colour to prevent re-use and does not need to be retrieved from visitors leaving the premises. Unlike dot-expiring passes, where a round sticker needs to be precisely affixed to the pass, the TAB-Expiring Visitor Pass is activated simply by folding over an integrated tab. The word ‘VOID’ appears on the pass overnight. The patented one-piece design speeds up visitor registration and leaves no waste or mess.

Databac managing director Charles Balcomb said: “We are very excited about partnering with Data Management. In the TAB-Expiring Visitor Pass, they have a truly unique solution for visitor management. Easy, secure and disposable, it is an ideal fit between our basic paper visitor passes and our high-end rewritable badge systems. We look forward to launching it onto the European stage.”

The TAB-Expiring Visitor Pass is printed using standard thermal label printers, making it compatible with visitor management software such as Databac’s Dataimage Visitor. These passes are also available in sheet format, as a portable wirebound book, for manual entry of visitor data. Both versions can be pre-printed to conform with corporate branding.

Brian Gallagher, president of Data Management, said: “Databac has a solid grip on the European identification market. This is a winning partnership for both businesses, giving us a ready route to market and enriching Databac’s range of secure visitor solutions.”

Data Management’s Visitor Pass Solutions offer innovative, effective and user-friendly visitor badge products. They are the premiere choice in temporary visitor identification and tracking solutions, with delighted users in both the public and private sectors.
