Bar Code Scanning


bar_code_scanBarcode Scanning is used by venues of any type, large or small with GENERAL ADMISSION or RESERVED SEATING tickets to scan and check barcoded tickets upon entry for validation. Scan the tickets with simple PCs or laptops with our hand held barcode scanner. Computers must be connected to internet for real time scanning.

Real time scanning: A barcode ticket scanner is used at one or multiple venue points of entry. As the tickets are scanned, the barcodes are verified and a real-time message is returned regarding barcode validity. For duplicate tickets, the staff member scanning sees a ”INVALID”

The admission tickets are scanned at the door and their barcodes are checked for validity. Each barcode can only be used once to enter and copied tickets are rejected.
