Groovix software can be used in unauthenticated or authenticated mode.
This is the traditional "public access computer" model where users are unknown and untrusted. No username or password is required to begin using the system.
In authenticated mode, a username and password is required to log in. Usernames and passwords can be managed by Groovix, or we can interface with your existing user databse such as SIP2, Horizon Self Checkout, other library ILS systems including Koha and Evergreen.
The Groovix Guest Pass system can be used on it's own or in conjunction with another authentication scheme. It makes it easy to give temporary access to non-regular users. Guest passes determine the valid number of uses, how many days the pass is valid for, and time quotas.
