Ticket Machine for Quick-Cut Salon
 
 
Ticket machine boosts efficiency and reduces labor cost for business
 

Today quick cut salons are popping out on the street corners, shopping malls or even subways stations; they provide fast service while charging at a relatively lower price to compete against fancy high-end salons. In the fast-paced working environment, quick-cut salons usually deploy ticket machines for customers to pay before getting their hair cut and waiting in line. Therefore, the barbers are not bothered by collecting money and making changes, saving labor costs and focusing on providing fast and quality services. A reliable ticket machine is a must-have for quick-cut salons.

Challenges
 

The quick cut salons offer low price haircuts and quick service. The salon shops are usually small. To reduce costs and increase the efficiency of business operation, easy-to-use self-service ticket machines are necessary. The customer, Imao Technology, is looking for a high-performance yet low-power mini-ITX motherboard with a compact size. The motherboard requires rich I/O interfaces to support a thermal printer and currency detectors to collect both bills and coins. Moreover, it needs to support the customer’s management software to help the owner to view the daily checkout report.

Main Requirements
  • High performance yet low power
  • Rich I/O connectivity
    - supports currency detectors
    - supports thermal printer
  • Various display outputs choices
  • Great expansion for more storage capacity
  • Management software support
  • GbE LAN ports support Wake-on-LAN
