DESKO was founded in 1991 by Werner Zahn and Bruno Geyer. With their years of experience in digital data capturing and a lot of innovative ideas in mind, both dreamed of establishing their own company.

The name of the company was found quickly: DESKO, an acronym for Data Entry, Solutions and COncepts. DESKO, not just a name, is the description of what the company provides to its customers.

From airline and airport industry, to public authorities, to banks and hotels, DESKO´s fields of expertise are many, and helped, to became a successful international company with subsidiaris in the USA and Singapore, and sold products to more than 100 countries worldwide.

Company Profile

  • Water Resistant Integrated Keyboard for Check-In

    Our integrated keyboard NEPTUN chrom is the new standard for check-in keyboards. The NEPTUN keyboard is equipped with DESKO´s well-known MRZ and MSR technology for passport or ID card reading as well as mag stripe card reading. What makes the NEPTUN chrom outstanding to classic keyboards is the fact that it is completely water and dust resistant according to IP54 regulations. Not just the key matrix and the key caps, the entire keyboard including swipe slot withstands water splashes and dust.

    No more damaged keyboards due to water spillage. No more closed counters due to equipment replacements. The NEPTUN chrom is your reliable partner ensuring a smooth working routine in the airport environment.

  • Boarding Gate Reader for Integration or Standalone

    Our BGR 504 pro is the state-of-the-art boarding gate reader, perfect for integration into counter, kiosk or gates. It can also be used as standalone solution at the boarding gate. The scanner is extremely efficient and easy to use thanks to its large scanning area and built-in barcode engine for 1D and 2D BCBP reading. Its multicolor display and two large LEDs on each side give an immediate and highly visible feedback, whether the scanned ticket is valid or not, to the passenger as well as the agent.

    The DESKO BGR 504 pro is based on a robust flatbed scan technology for highest and super-fast barcode read rates. Because of its barrier free flatbed design the device allows for user-friendly mobile boarding pass reading from smart phones or large tablet displays (i.e. iPad).

    A large multicolor LCD display for text and picture display, multicolor LEDs for clear visual feedback and an adjustable volume control buzzer for acoustic feedback make the BGR 504 pro the ideal device for a fast and trouble free boarding process.

    DESKO’s smart device approach and optional features like NFC boarding guarantee a future-proof infrastructure and protect your investment.
