For those who are not familiar with the term, pass-around system is used when a library uses fixed (RF) or no security tags but verify the items manually by the exit.
Our customer is just like this. When they came to us with a request to implement a self-checkout system using meeScan mobile app we put our thinking caps on and came up with a solution that not only allows them to use meeScan but also improves on their general workflow and increases the throughput through the exit.
Our solution is based on a newly developed pass-around controller. This smart device is equipped with up to three barcode scanners and is connected to meeScan cloud. Through the cloud, it can quickly verify the item status and indicate to the staff whether the item is allowed to leave the library via a large red/green light. By using the in-desk scanners similar to the ones used by large grocery stores, the guard can process items much quicker and more effectively than by checking the paper insert.
