Structure of Bars Access and Payment System for Water Parks and Swimming Pools

Cashier terminals 
Our software to automate cashier operations ensures high performance of cashiers’ work and enables visitors to pay for the water park services using both cash and bank cards. All cashier operations are handled by one software shell. The software interface is simple and user-friendly, which is extremely convenient beginners as well as other users. All operations are personalized. The user who performed the operation can be identified at any moment. 
Cashier’s workplace features: 

  • cash register (PC or POS terminal); 
  • barcode ticket printer or receipt printer;
  • RFID bracelet reader or barcode scanner;
  • software;
  • customer display.
Water-resistant RFID bracelets are a common and convenient solution for water parks and swimming pools. Worn by guests at all times, they minimize the risk of loss and make guests’ experience more comfortable and safe.   
RFID bracelets also serve as access cards to pass the turnstiles, keys to change room lockers and payment means for additional services in the park or pool. All information on a guest’s transactions is accumulated in the electronic format and recorded on storage media. 
Apart from RFID bracelets, the system can also use RFID cards, barcode tickets, and QR code on smartphones as IDs. Bars payment and access control system can be adapted to work with any IDs.

Vending machine for tickets and wishbrands 
In addition to automated cashier counters, the system can include vending machines as supplementary points-of-sale. As well as selling bracelets and access, these can be practical in the change rooms for guests to top up their bracelet balance (in case of deposit-based system).

Access Points: Turnstiles
Technically, automated turnstiles are a key element of the entire access and payment system of any water park or pool. Their main function is to minimize human factor in the efficiency of guest access control.

Automatic access control of access can be arranged with various types of turnstiles: Kaba, Axess, Gotschlich, PERCo, DataKrat, etc. 
The turnstiles are equipped with DataKrat or Gantner block readers and by default have an Anti-panic system allowing free and unrestricted exit of people in emergency situations.
