Recommended Front Desk Equipment

You are here:

Member Splash web-based platform is designed to use with easily-accessible equipment at your pool’s front desk. Although the system is compatible with just about any type of computer with an internet connection, the following list represents recommended equipment if you are purchasing new items and need a place to start.

Chromebook

The only function of the computer at the front desk is to access the internet in order to run front-desk check in. Therefore any machine capable of going online will work.

We recommend the Acer 15 CB3-532 Chromebook (note: recommendation last updated Oct. 11, 2017). It can be found for under $160 on Amazon.

USB Camera

Having a webcam at the front desk simplifies the process of taking member photos at the front desk. If the computer at your front desk does not have a built-in webcam, or faces the user (as most laptop webcams do), we recommend purchasing something like this webcam, priced under $10: 5.0 MegaPixel USB 2.0 Digital Webcam. Note: It requires a USB port to plug into.

Barcode Scanner

If your pool has elected to use barcode cards at the front desk in addition to manual check-in, we recommend this USB Automatic Barcode Scanner. It also plugs into the computer’s USB drive and will automatically load the member’s info on the screen when the card is scanned.

Barcode Cards

The cards are formatted to print on standard business card size cards. We recommend this Avery perforated business cardstock.
