Dedicated Scanning App
We also offer a Dedicated Scanner which is available at an additional monthly fee. This enables the mobile app to be logged in as a scanner only and disables all other functionality of the app.
This option is excellent if you wish to leave your mobile device unattended and set up for your members to "self serve", or if it is to be operated my a non administrator. Raise a support ticket if you would like to discuss adding the dedicated scanner to your package.
**NOTE** The scan ability is not available in all of our packages. If you would like to check your package or request an upgrade to have this ability, please Raise a support ticket
