SmartCard Manual

Why you should use Smart Cards?

Smart Cards are reusable access cards which offer complete secure system with our Internet Caffe software. Customers simply insert card in card reader and they are automatically logged.

Smart Cards are very practical. Costumers don`t have to remember username and password or timecode. As the session continues time credit is decremented. When customer remove card, session is ended. It's very suitable when you make a network of cafes and generate smartcard which can be used to login in any cafe.
Cards act as advertisements, reminding your customers to visit your store.
