Overview

Kiosk Mode is designed as a self-service/check-in option for Club Members. In this guide, we will discuss how to configure Kiosk Mode within the CMA application.

Please note that Kiosk Mode can be used as a simple check in station or as a unified component with the Clubessential Reservations system. Be sure to view the appropriate configuration section depending on your club’s setup.

Use Case(s)

    • A Member must check in to the Club upon entry, to the Fitness Center before working out, and/or at the Pro Shop before playing a round of golf (without requiring Club Staff assistance).

    • Members can check in and pay for their Tee Times or other Reservations (Spa Appt, Personal Training session) without the assistance of Club Staff.

Additional System Settings


In this section, we will discuss additional Kiosk Mode Settings that impact the kiosk functionality.  To access these settings, click on System, System Settings, POS, and scroll down to Kiosk Mode Settings.

There are (3) Settings found in the Kiosk Mode Settings section.

1) Service Code - Set this code (to a code of your choice) to allow Club Staff to exit Kiosk Mode from Kiosk.  

Once Kiosk Mode has been set, click on the Gear Icon (intentionally discrete button in the bottom right-hand corner) to access the Service Code screen.

Enter the Service Code when prompted and click OK.

Once accepted, Kiosk will return to regular POS Login screen.

2) Always show keyboard in Kiosk Mode - Check this box to show full keyboard on the kiosk.  This is helpful when Member numbers involve Alpha-numeric characters.

3) Disable PIN in Kiosk Mode - Check this setting to bypass the requirement for a unique Member PIN, and allow any Member to log-in with only their Member number. See additional kiosk documents for more information on this setting. 

 

Best Practices

1. When considering use of a kiosk, determine where operating costs could be saved, and Member experience could be enhanced with a self-service check-in option.

2. Consider additional revenue opportunity by adding an honor system Snack Cart/Bar when Checking in for an Activity (Tee Time, Spa Appt, etc).
