Online Service Offering via Coupon and Discounts Web Sites
Online coupon industry is booming around the world – the business has grown tenfold over the last two years. The idea behind the discount business is a simple stroke of genius: Millions of consumers get discounts and save money, while thousands of companies sell their services and goods in high volumes. 
With this idea in mind, we have made sure our Bars Access and Check-in System supports remote sales via coupon web sites. New opportunities the service brings will enable our Customers to benefit from: 
  • higher ticket sales thanks to an added sales channel;
  • increased flow of guests during low peak hours (e.g., morning hours, business days) or low season;
  • stabilization of cash flows off season, with increased share of prepayment and turnover.
Any company offering discounts via coupon websites at once generates revenues, advertises its services, and wins new customers who can further become regulars. 

Video Verification
Online control of turnstile access. When a guest scans a ticket and passes through a turnstile, the ticket data is displayed on the monitor at the security point. This information can be quickly checked against what the security actually see, so they can record any handover of tickets to a third party (e.g., track and prevent adults entering with child tickets).
