The Card Swipe Program ( CSP ) was originally developed for Bluffton Self Help as a means to more accurately manage Patrons, and track food, and clothing distribution as well as other forms of assistance. CSP is a group of Windows-PC Applications tied to a MySQL database. Together they provide the administrative functions of managing patrons allowing for food and clothing parameters such as the number of items allowed per week, and any food weight limits (per person, per week, etc.)***
As the name implies, CSP, uses magnetic cards (and an inexpensive USB card swipe device) to identify the patrons. The cards are given out to each family and are ‘swiped’ at needed to register visits or materials taken away.
There are two additional programs in the CSP bundle – one helps track Volunteer’s Hours, and another provides a myriad of reports based on the data that has been collected in the database.
All CSP applications are compatible with Windows-7, 8, and 10.
In cooperation with Iris ID, Inc , CSP includes iris identification as a means to manage patrons. Please see This Page for more information regarding CSP Iris Identification.
