for the complete management of Wireless Hotspots
(LAN 2, RADIUS)
for Hotels, Libraries, Internet Cafes etc.
Explorer is a complete software for
managing a Hotspot (Wi-Fi).
Softvision Explorer supports two different types of Hotspots :
Hotels : for these businesses the software will enable you
to offer an exclusive service to your customers by which they
will be able to navigate the internet from their rooms, using
their own computers connected via your Wi-Fi Hotspot.
Libraries : more and more public libraries are offering their customers free access to the internet. By installing a Hotspot in your library your customers will be able to navigate using their own laptops via Wi-Fi, leaving your fixed terminals free for others to use.
Pubs : by installing a free Hotspot in your pub, you will give your customers yet another reason for being there.
Cyber Cafes, Internet Cafes : for this kind of business the software is particularly useful because it supplies access to both fixed and wireless connected terminals.
Registration Data : The
customer's registration data must be entered on this page. It is
also possible to gather other data about his residence and
possibly contact information (e-mail and telephone).
Document : This section allows gathering all the information on an identity document: type, number, date and issuing agency. The two sides of the document can be scanned in the pages "Front Image" and "Back Image".
Authentication : This section is used to specify the customer's username and password.
Navigation : This page has options that control how the user can navigate.
Note : In this last page, records can be added about the user.
This section of the main window displays the names of customers in the archive together with their balance due and navigation method (prepaid, post-paid, traffic etc..). If the customer has a negative balance, the figures in the Balance Due column are red. This normally happens when customers are navigating in post-paid mode.
There is a search box in the upper part of this section that is
very useful for quickly finding a customer by simply typing the
first few characters of his name.
Backing up the program archives is of vital importance for a variety of reasons. In fact, in the case of lost data due, for example, to a hard disk failure (an event that is hardly rare), all the users' data would be lost. This could lead to more or less serious problems: for example, should all customer receivable data be lost, you would not be able to provide session data to the courts, not to mention scanned documents, registry master file data, etc.
For this reason, Explorer Manager provides a variety of
functions dedicated to safeguarding the data and, thanks
to which, it is possible to quickly restore the archives
if they are damaged.
Navigation Rate Plans
The Rate Plans are entirely similar to those that phone companies use to decide what rates to charge the customer when he makes a phone call. Softvision Explorer uses them to determine the rate the customer will be charged when he accesses a workstation.
You can define different rates to charge your customers. For
example, you can set one rate for students and another one for
loyal customers, etc. The rate plan is associated to the
customer in his personal
When using Softvision Explorer each user must belong to a Group. The user is assigned to a Group in his user record.
The user group defines what functions the client can access when he connects. In this way, for example, it is possible to define which programs the users in a certain group can run or which disks they are allowed, or denied, access to.
By defining several groups of users it is possible, for example, to group your clientele based on the level of trust you grant them.

The Softvision Explorer archive contains a large quantity of data whose statistical analyses are a huge help in managing your business.
There are various types of graphs to display statistical results : bar, area, pie or line charts. The same data can also be displayed in table form. More...
