A complete communication system to integrate their complex hardware with an intuitive software application for their customers.
Nothing of its Kind Existed
Oliver Smith from T-A-N approached Code23 with a very unique requirement. A custom software solution for their Tanning Salon to enable them to go staffless.
Nothing of its kind existed. They needed a complete communication system to integrate their complex hardware with an intuitive software application for their customers. The type of challenge the Code23 team love!
T-A-N needed a solution to:
- Identify customers
- Enable customers to self-serve
- Control the doors, sunbeds and vending machines from an intuitive app
- Process payments
A Complete Communication System
Code23 developed a complete communication system with a complex hardware integration using Laravel. With software on a terminal passing data via a Raspberry Pi and a reverse-engineered serial port to the various hardware components. Enabling customers to:
- Access to the salon through fingerprint recognition
- Select a sunbed and length of the session
- Choose and pay for tanning lotions and other products
- Enter the room they’ve selected, by unlocking the door.
- It starts the timer on the sunbed to turn on after allowing time for people to get undressed.
- Then turns off the sunbed and allows you time to get dressed before unlocking the door again.
“Can’t recommend these guys enough… really great service with expert advice.
The technology they managed to integrate into our self-service kiosk was outstanding and went the extra mile to make sure everything was as we wanted.
Great job guys. I’ll be engaging with Code23 for any future upgrades and add ons required.”
