Over the past years CKS has made many technological investments. We pride ourselves on being as up to date as possible with technology while always keeping in mind Security, Accuracy, Efficiency, Confidentiality etc.

PRINT BUNNY

  1. This piece of machinery is one of the most basic and user friendly pieces of equipment we own.
  2. It allows multiple priced ticket sales through any one Entrance gate. (no more queues as specified stiles)
  3. It issues a receipt for all cash received.
  4. It allows children stay with their parents by issuing a zero value ticket.
  5. It acts as a receipt for refund purposes in the unlikely event of the Event being cancelled prior to an agreed time.
  6. This in turn allows the Event to open even if there is a shadow over its commencement.
  7. It offers accurate statistics at the push of a button at any stage of the day.
  8. It gives final statistics of attendance and cash received.
  9. It does not loose its totals due to power failure
  10. It limits the number of Entrance Gates needed as anyone can go to any Gate. (Saving on staffing)
  11. It allows staggered opening and closing times so not all staff need to be there at the start or finish when things are quiet. Thus speeding up the whole wrapping up process at the end of day.

WRISTBAND PRINTERS

We offer personalised wristbands at a very competitive rate.

They are:

  • Designed and printed specially for your event

  2. This allows for multiple functions on one ticket. Perhaps one ticket could include: Entry/Programme/Refreshment/Meal etc
  3. It can Allow entry to more than one area should the need arise

SCANNERS

  1. These give an accurate reading of the exact attendance at any given time.
