Resorts World Manila (RWM) is an integrated resort, located in Newport City, opposite the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) Terminal 3, in Pasay, Metro Manila, Philippines. The resort is owned and operated by Travellers International Hotel Group, Inc. (TIHGI), a joint venture between Alliance Global Group and Genting Hong Kong. RWM is the sister resort to Resorts World Genting, Malaysia and Resorts World Sentosa, Singapore. It was the first integrated resort in Metro Manila, and from 2009.

Approximately 6,000 employees report to work daily in the various hotels, casinos, service and retail outlets within its complex. Because of its huge employee count, manually enforcing ingress policies is both tedious and error prone. In 2017, RWM engaged the services of EDS INNOVENTIONS to develop a customized biometric system to automate screening and provide critical information to incoming employees.

The following are the challenges posed by this project:

  • Each employee must be automatically screened if he/she has a work schedule on that day. In other words, entry is barred from entry on non-work days. This is essential in maintaining security. Work schedules frequently change, and given the huge number of employees, this task is extremely tedious if done manually.

  • Employees must be informed upon entry what his venue assignment for the day. RWM normally rotate venue assignments. For example game personnel are normally re-assigned to different casino pits on a periodic basis.

  • This customized system must interface seamlessly with its existing attendance and assignment software. There should be no need for encoding.

EDS has successfully developed and implemented the customized biometric system. Since 2017, RWM has been continuously using the System for its 6,000 work force.
