Regardless of whether your guests eat and drink in the canteen or refectory or simply want to purchase a coffee to go and a magazine at the kiosk in passing: they can make cashless payments using the credit on their chipcard.
InterCard will supply you with the entire payment system: The products selected by your guest are entered into the checkout by your staff, read with the barcode scanner or registered using the integrated scales.The attached smart.DESK chipcard reader books the payment due directly from the credit on the chipcard.
The checkout "Sango" combines innovative technology with excellent design.
"Sango" appears to hover because it is not fixed to a base unit, plinth or support. This allows for valuable space under the screen for a cash drawer or a receipt printer.
The stable and robust metal base unit conducts heat so that one version of the cash desk can even dispense with a ventilator. Moreover the energy consumption is low thanks to the built-in flash memory (SSD), which is also quieter than a normal hard drive as well as being less sensitive to shocks.
The pivotable LED monitor with frameless display is available either in a resistive or a capacitive multi-touchscreen version.Four different processor types and several communications ports are available.
Optionally you can also fit the checkout with a 1D barcode scanner or a receipt printer.
The polycarbonate checkout frames can be selected in seven different colours and can easily be exchanged.
Upon request the checkout can also be fitted with various customer displays. There is a choice of a simple two-line display with pixel control or a graphics display with very high picture quality.
The checkout "Yuno" offers modern technology, ergonomic design, innovative functions and successful design with a good cost-benefit ratio.
The energy-saving processor in a ventilator-free housing uses very little energy and the aluminium housing works like a cooling element.
The appliance is fitted with a quiet flash memory (SSD) as standard.
The touchscreen is resistant to shocks and scratches. The entire checkout is resistant to fats, crumbs, dust and splashes.The display is available in two formats: with a 15.1-inch screen in 4:3 format and with a 15.6-inch screen in widescreen 16:9 format. The projected-capacitive screen operates with gesture-enhanced single touch awareness. The checkout display can be adjusted smoothly with an angle of inclination between 0° and 90°.
The compact "smart.FIX" chipcard terminal was specially developed for the payment of menus at fixed prices. It replaces the costly checkout system involving staff.
Guests hold their chipcard in front of the chipcard reader; the fixed price is deducted and access to the menu is granted.
The fixed price is either deducted from the credit on the chipcard or is charged via a cost-centre accounting system.The chipcard terminal can easily be linked into your checkout system.
"smart.DESK" is a compact chipcard reader specially developed for the checkout area, for efficient cashless payment in refectories, canteens and cafeterias.
With its hard-wearing presentation, "smart.DESK" fulfils all requirements for a variety of checkout environments.The card-reading screen is easily identified by the user. Combined with a clearly legible LCD display, it ensures an intuitive and therefore error-free payment process with the chipcard.
The actions at the terminal are recognisable on the display through different colours. A signal will sound if an error occurs.Booking times of less than 1 second ensure a faster throughput, especially at busy times.
A choice of two software packages is available. They have been specially developed for use in community catering and permit fast and easy processing of the checkout procedures as well as payment with cash, via cost centres or with the credit on a chipcard.
The software packages are very easy to use even for computer novices. They permit rapid entry to efficient checkout systems in refectories, canteens, cafeterias and shops.
The registration procedure takes place via the cashier's key, a chipcard or the user password. Upon request the software will start automatically when you switch the system on and will shut down and switch off the PC when the checkout module ends.
In order to simplify and support repetitive work, procedures can be individually saved by the user and then carried out at a later stage by simply pressing a button.By means of the flexible data interfaces it is possible to link the system into external programs, e.g. merchandise management, salaries and wages systems or in order to exchange data with external systems.
With the software packages for data administration you can manage centrally all the master data for the checkout system:
The administration software is intuitive and easy to use. It has been devised for staff without in-depth experience. The menu structure of the software can be adapted to suit your individual needs; you can simply mask out menu entries which you do not require.The user surfaces of the checkouts can also be centrally configured and designed using the administration software.
It is possible to administer table reservations and bookings, customer cards and subsidies via the software packages.Additional modules for the TCPOS checkout software are also available for sales campaigns, stocktaking checks, invoice printing and label printing.
The software packages assist you with your monitoring of sales, balance checks, checkout revenues and turnover in kiosk vending machines. The turnover monitoring can be carried out for all sales points and locations.When starting and ending the checkout system the core data are automatically read into the checkouts and the turnover data are read out. The administration software supplies comprehensive turnover reports.
Plausibility checks monitor all transaction data continuously. Thus the system will recognise the malfunctioning of equipment, data carrier errors, missing amounts or manipulation of the chipcard as well as unusual user behaviour.The system records every action with date, time, checkout number, etc. and permits a gapless reconstruction of all procedures. Thus if a card is lost the latest credit amount can also be determined.
The data from all transactions, such as, for example, checkout or upgrading revenues, are stored in a raw data format in the Microsoft SQL database and are made available for you to process as required.The administration software makes interfaces available to other management systems such as merchandise management and financial accounting.
