Running a network-based business can be a tricky job in regard to monitoring the time spent on the computers. HandyCafe is a program designed for cyber cafes, libraries, schools and other similar places.
The program has a simple interface and an intuitive layout. It provides a wide range of features to help you control the network, cashiers, members and customers. Thus, for example, you can create membership accounts and grant them different pricing or payment options as loyalty awards.
Additionally, different prices can be set up for various instances, such as timers or certain days. The VAT can also be adjusted to the country you live in.
On top of allowing the customers the use of a certain item (a computer, a gaming console, a pool table etc.), you can also sell drinks and foods and keep a tab for each client. Additionally, timers can be programmed for those who ask and they can even be paid in advance. This means that if someone asks to use the computer for a certain amount of time, for instance, you can track when the time is up.
If your business revolves around computers, then you can set up certain restrictions against dangerous and unsecure websites, as well as bad words usage. Also, HandyCafe enables you to wake up, shut down, browse or manage through Remote Desktop any computer in the network. Bandwidth limitations can also be set up.
All in all, HandyCafe is an interesting tool that can come in handy when you run a small business. Inexperienced users might need some time to learn the ropes of this program.
