To utilize the system, each user must check in with their unique login credentials, either with a swipe of their personalized magnetic card or entry of a personal password. The owner or manager can set each employee’s login access to any one of a number of security levels. To make organizing your centre easier, the Switch® system generates user groups according to security level, such as: manager, assistant, cashier or mechanic. In addition to organizing user groups, proprietors have the ability to customise preferences.
