At larger DYI markets, a large number of customers come driving through every day to collect substantial batches of goods at various locations. How do you ensure that all the customers pay for their goods if the payment is not always effected at the exit?
Payment Control with Day Codes
At Bygma in Aalborg SV, Denmark, they had to face exactly that challenge. The area for goods collection is large and hard to overview and various staff members handle different kinds of goods. So, as a rule, it is not one employee, who follows the customer across the area.
Therefore, the company recently installed two CP1000 readers in order to ensure that customers do not leave the area without paying for their goods. In order to open the barrier and leave the area, today, you have to type in a pin code at a CP1000 code keypad. The code is handed out during payment and is only valid on the same day. The code changes automatically at midnight. The two readers have been installed at two different heights in order to match motorcars and trucks.
Day Codes in Print
The day codes come from a small software programme and are printed once a month so that they are always available when they are needed. This way, it is also possible to hand out the codes to specific recurring customers for a longer time and thus simplify life for the driver and the Bygma staff. In addition, the day code can be looked up directly on the PC. All the CP1000 readers are also equipped with one-time-only codes that are deactivated after use.
… or Via an App
When you use a CP1000 with day codes, an app is supplied, which quite simply shows the day code. At Bygma, the app is used by the warehouse manager, Nick Fredberg, so that he can always get the day code when he moves around in the area. Also, the app can send the day code to a mobile phone or to an e-mail account.
CP1000 offers a lot of opportunities for time-limited pin codes, so if you find the solution interesting for you or your customers, please feel welcome to contact us for more information on the task.
