Self Check in/out Stations can handle with several books in an effective way simultaneously. Librarians can simply use Inventory Handheld Reader to scan books on shelf, and will be able to monitor, manage, and track the books. In addition, the UHF technology is flexible and can overcome metallic objects. Thus, librarians could perform stock take in a more effective and accurate way at Staff Station. Moreover, RFID system also provides an anti-theft function by UHF Security Gate, which perfectly monitors the alarm alert in a stable and reliable way. Not only facilitate librarians, but also patrons, with the help of the friendly user interface of self-check station, patrons can scan RFID tags in book check-in and check-out process in a simpler way.

It helps saving the waiting and queuing time, and also supports e-receipt for the paperless environment. Faster and more accurate stock take solution also reduces librarians and labor cost and increases their efficiency.
