KidCheck has a very modest list of requirements for the computers being used to run children’s check-in. To have the best possible experience the recommended system requirements are below.
Computers used for administration and accessing information can be any platform and simply need to have a web browser and internet connection.
A wired network connection is recommended for computer-based (Windows/Mac) check-in stations. Wired network connections can dramatically help the performance of computer-based check-in stations by reducing signal interference and speed variance.
