Cybera has left me pleasantly surprised. I didn't think there were any good free internet cafe management softwares. So the cafe I helped setup was using Cybercafepro. But that program is a mess. It was only months later I stumbled upon this program and I guess it was because I wasn't searching for the correct keywords.
Anyway as I have been teaching people to use the software I've noticed that the way they use it is a bit akward. When they want to start a new person on a workstation they have to do either:
1) goto the cards screen, add a new card, select the time, click recharge, start a workstation, go back to workstations
2) goto the cards screen, search for an unused card in the left, start a workstation, then go back to workstations
This is acceptable but it's unnecessary complexity. For simple usage how about creating a button on the workstation screen called "Start". After clicking on it they can select one of the pre-configured times to create a new card.
This is similar to the prepaid mode except there is a number associated with the session so if users don't use all their time they can come back later. This is important.
