The system of face recognition is designed to eliminate fraud cases from clients who meet when using normal cards of loyalty of club. The technology will pass on the territory only the card holder — to provide it in temporary use to friends or relatives it will not turn out. A system will unmistakably recognize people even in the heading, a scarf, black glasses and a medical mask, the CEO of NtechLab Alexander Minin said.

By the beginning of November, 2019 the technology was tested in five centers in Moscow, Barnaul and Surgut, and from the 2020th it will appear in 50 fitness clubs through the whole country.

The system of face recognition will be installed only in the large centers on 3.5-5 thousand clients so far, but in the future it will be able to extend also to small clubs.

By estimates of ANO Natsionalnoye fitnes soyedineniye who is responsible for digitalization more than 20 large clubs across all Russia, installation of terminals with face recognition in the fitness centers allows to save up to 1 million rubles on purchase of smart bracelets with RFID chips on an input if it is about club of 3.5-5 thousand visitors in size.

Economy happens also due to reduction of wage fund of the administrative employees meeting clients on an input — by estimates of ANO, not less, than for 30%. Also affirms that expenses on system implementation of "turnkey" face recognition, including purchase and equipment installation, pay off within the first year of use.[1]
