Magnetic Swipe Cards can be used in place of a typed password. This offers several benefits:
  • Speed - One quick swipe o the card logs you in. 
  • Security - Nobody knows their password and if they discover it, the onscreen keyboard doesn't have the characters needed to type it.
  • Tight control over supervisor voids and deletes. You know that the Supervisor's or Administrator's card was used and not just a shared password.
  If you want to have employee login cards created, any company that creates encoded cards can do it. There are only a couple requirements:                      
  • Encode Employee Login Cards
  • We recommend HiCo cards because they're most compatible with the card readers used by our customers, the encoding lasts longer and have fewer read errors over their lifetime.
  • The card must be encoded on TRACK 2 with a 6 digit number. The Start and End sentinel characters inserted by the card swipe will produce the 8 character password.
  • All other tracks must be blank.

Each terminal must have a credit card swipe for this login method to work. You also need a credit card swipe at the terminal were this will be set up. In the "EMPLOYEE SET-UP" screen in the POS Administrator menu, bring up the employee to be edited. Place your cursor in field # 7, Login Password. Swipe the card in this field. Save the changes and test the card by swiping it at the login keyboard screen.
