Wireless Scanning of Tickets

New for 2014!  Because YOU demanded it!

Phone and Bluetooth Scanner

Now you can validate tickets over the WEB using your own Smart Phone, iPad or Surface tablet, coupled with an inexpensive Bluetooth scanner.  That's right, now you can leverage the fact that nearly everyone has a smartphone or a tablet with web access, and put that to work at the gate scanning tickets.

Of course, the older special purpose PDA scanners will still work, but will likely be phased out due to cost differences over general purpose phones and tablets. Tick-It! Trak Pro enables you to cut the cord!  Go wireless with a properly equipped PDA for Ticket Validation functions or for use with our Wireless ADMIN Assistant Module.

IPAQ 2400 Scanning a Ticket Shown here is an IPAQ 2400 PDA equipped with a SOCKET SCAN Compact Flash Card.  Note that upon scanning a ticket, the operator is notified of the validity of the ticket for the attraction it is being presented for.  In addition to an easy to read visual response, the PDA can also be set to play a sound, such as the one heard when this page was loaded.

 

Now, UNLIKE other systems, where a list of tickets is downloaded into the PDA's memory, with Trak Pro, the communication is LIVE with your SQL Server!  This means that there is NO POSSIBILITY of a ticket being used more than one time!

 

Serialized tickets MUST be matched with proper Event ID's, Customer ID's and Transaction ID's.  This is the equivalent of a counterfeiter having to get a 21 digit number right, when all they can see to play with is 7 of the digits.

 

The Trak Pro system uses standard Code 3 of 9 (also referred to as Code 39) which is printable by all standard ticket printers, such as BOCA, PRACTICAL AUTOMATION and DATAMAX, and is readable by low cost and readily available bar code scanners.  No expensive equipment required.

Symbol Hand Held PC with Scanner Shown here is a SYMBOL SYSTEMS Pocket PC equipped with an integrated laser scanner.  These units are more robust than the IPAQ shown above, and the integrated laser scanner operates faster and under more conditions than the Socket Scanner shown above,  However these units are also much more expensive than the general purpose PDA's like the IPAQ.
