SMART Common Use Self-Service Check-In Kiosks (SMART/CUSS)
The Common Use Self-Service Check-In solution provided by SEETEK S.A. is the next generation of self-service check-in devices/terminals available at airports today. Airlines/airports rely on SMART/CUSS for the fast and convenient checking-in of passengers by themselves at check-in machines/kiosks using their tickets, credit or loyalty cards. SMART Common Use Self-Service Check-In Kiosks allows for check-in of both passengers and their luggage, regardless of which airline they are flying with. Airports/airlines can therefore reduce the total number of kiosks required and their overheads by using shared SMART Common Use Self-Service Check-In Kiosks.
SMART/CUSS uses the IATA CUSS standard defining uniform interfaces for airport applications to access the peripheral devices within a kiosk and supports numerous printers, readers and other devices. SMART/CUSS allows airports/airlines to provide self check-in facilities without using systems provided by airport authorities or handling agents, which might not be the most cost-effective solution and compatible with their host computer systems.
SMART/CUSS is an “All-in-One” modular kiosk housing integrated and compartmentalized components in a compact design including a printer, touch screen, barcode reader, card reader and passport reader. The modular design of SMART/CUSS makes it easy to maintain (exchanging of components) and extremely cost effective.
SMART/CUSS devices are already present in over 300 airports and used by amongst others Delta and United Airlines and are provided by a leading company actively participating in the IATA CUSS Management Group and the definition of the CUSS standards.
