We have some new features in the Operator Area.
You can now view how many Pre-Paid cards left at specific locations, groupped by the validity period for example 30 MINS / 3pcs, 1 HOUR / 15 pcs, etc.
If you see you have a few left you can order more cards. (Click on HotSpot Locations > Location Name and see the Pre-Paid cards section)
If you don't sell Pre-Paid cards at a location you should consider. We have locations where only 10% of customers buy accesses with Credit Cards.
If you operate the HotSPot in a hotel, you can easily add the price of the card to the room bill.
FREE TRIAL PACKAGE
You can now assign a free trial package to a location.
With this feature you can offer 10 minutes free internet to your customers. After 10 minutes users will be logged out automatically and they have to BUY a package to continue. They won't be able to use another free access becuase their MAC address will blocked in the system for 24 hours. After 24 hours they will be able to use the free period again. The 24 hours block can be modified so if you want to block the user for a week than you can do so.
From 1th, August you'll be notified when a customer buys an access with a credit card and you can also get emails when a Pre-Paid card activated.
By default we'll send out these notifications to the contact email, but you can modify all these parameters.
Go to Settings in the Operator Area to turn on/off these notifications or set a different email address.
DID YOU KNOW THAT YOU CAN USE THE SYSTEM TO SET UP A LOCAL DESKTOP COMPUTER?
If you have a chance, set up a desktop computer so users can buy internet access if they don't have a laptop.
You can use a used ($100) computer too, because you just need a browser to run on the computer (you can use Ubuntu instead of Windows which is a free operating system).
You can set the router to have paid LAN ports, and offer short packages (30 mins, 1hour) to increase your sales.
After we set up some desktop computers in a campground, we noticed a 90% INCREASE in sales, which is AMAZING!
If you need help about this, don't hesitate to contact us.
More features coming in August, so stay tuned!
