FREE Professional School Library Software When Schools Purchase Our Special School Barcode Readers
As a special service to Schools we currently provide a free copy of our
Professional School Library Software
QuickTrack Pro with all of our special school barcode readers purchased by schools.
This software has a built in cataloguing tool which uses the internet to look up the book details and automatically enter them into QuickTrack.
The online catalogue database is always up to date and is free of charge. There is no charge for updates.
This function is simple to use, simply scan the barcode on the book or enter by hand the ISBN number, then press return and the details will be catalogued automatically. This facility can also obtain catalogue information for most CD's, DVD's and some Videos.
The software also has a personalisation feature which allows you to customise the names of the databases, to show as Books and Pupils and also change the header to show your school logo instead of the default Peninsula logo.
Provided in the any of our bar code readers box you will find:
A simple three step installation sheet to get you up and running in less than five minutes!
A cable to connect your bar code reader to your computer.
When you place your order you can choose cable either USB (for Mac, PC, Linux or Terminals),
PS2 (for PC Windows or DOS) or ADB for those still using older Macintosh computers.
The three cables are pictured (above), but only the one you specify is included in the box.
