Crowne plaza card use Atmel T5577 125KHz low frequency RFID chip which is an updated version for T5567. It’s widely used in some hotels because the lower cost than other RFID chips like NXP Mifare Classic 1K/4K.
The Crowne Plaza card has two version, same front but different back designs. Unlike other companies may charge you extra setup cost if you do 2 different cards, we give customer gang run price this time. It saves customer hundreds of us dollars.
Like some other customers, crowne plaza require a round shape antenna and chip embeded to the left of the card. It’s very important for them, because a small change of the position of the antenna & chip will result their hotel card doesn’t work. They have made it elsewhere before,and the card won’t work, then they come to HighEndCard for help and we didn’t let them down finally. Every card works well on their door lock and the prices we quoted is cheaper than other companies.
Since this customer is located in Greece,when it comes to the shipping process, we choose HK DHL which allows real amount declare for the customs clearance purpose, and more importantly the sender on the waybill is exactly same as the proforma invoice shows. This successfully solve the problem that Greece government require truthful declaration for any importing goods. It helps customer avoid to pay heavy customs duty and amercement. From 2008 til now, Crowne Plaza continue to order hotel cards from us, cheers.
