RCD Espanyol de Barcelona implements a system in access control, presence and visits management



RCD Espanyol de Barcelona is a sports anonymous company based in Cornellà and El Prat de Llobregat, whose first team plays in the RCDE Stadium. It is one of the most modern stadiums in Spain with a capacity for 40,000 people and cataloged by UEFA with 4 stars.

The challenge

RCD Espanyol de Barcelona needed to implement a solution in access control and corporate presence that would allow it to manage in an agile and efficient way the access of workers to sports facilities and offices, as well as automation in the hourly control of employees.
With the aim of streamlining and securing the accesses, it was decided to implement a complete and integrated solution that would allow to manage access to visits to the facilities at the same time.
The solution should be implemented in the corporate offices, in the RCDE Stadium and in the Ciutat Esportiva Dani Jarque.

“The interlocution with Instel has been agile and efficient during all phases of the project, fitting perfectly to our timmings of installation. We highlight its decisive nature and its after-sales service” “The access and presence solution offers us a more complete and secure management of facilities and employees. In the near future, we will undertake a second phase of the project, with an expansion of the current system”

The solution

In response to these requirements, Instel designed an IP architecture proposal based on a hardware + software system in access, presence and visit management through biometrics and RFID.
With the aim of offering a multi-center solution, scalable and integrable with other existing subsystems in the club, we chose the solutions of Intemo Technologies, a leading manufacturer of access and presence management solutions.
