Product Overview
Monitor's Express application is a multi-purpose self-service kiosk application that can be
configured to support the following functionality:
· Add value to a Supervisor Net account using notes, coins, EFTPOS and credit cards
· Dispense cards
· Dispense casual tickets with optional expiry dates
· Launch other applications
· Display a configurable welcome message or advertising
· Ability to re-skin the application (Using Microsoft WPF) to conform to the operating
environment
· Provides a calculator to help the user decide how much to add to their account to use
various services
Express is suited for situations such as:
· Replacing aging autoloader fleets with a more user friendly, multi-functional alternative
· Self service situations such as a library or copy shop
It allows user to buy a Card or Ticket that can be used to purchase services, such as
photocopying and printing, controlled by Monitor's Supervisor Net transaction management
solution. The user can also reload the card or ticket by depositing any value using either cash
and coin, or EFTPOS.
Each Card or Ticket represents an account within Supervisor Net.
The user swipes the Card or enters the number printed on the Ticket to access services, up to
the value they purchased or re-loaded.

Installation Notes
Ensure you have installed the prerequisites described in the Requirements section.
Express is distributed as an executable installer, typically called Express Setup.exe.
You can either install the application on each kiosk, or install it on a central server and access
it through a network drive. If you intend to run Express from a central server, it is
recommended that you choose a shared path that the client machines can access read-only.
The administrator on the server will require read/write access to allow saving the configuration.
1. When you run or double click on the installer you will be lead through the installation by a
standard install wizard. Select Next to commence the Install wizard.
2. You are able to select the disk location where you want Express to be installed by clicking
on Browse.
3
Installation Notes
3. Click on the disk location and then select OK.
4. The Setup window will show you the disk location select. Click on Next to continue or
Browse to reselect new disk location.
Installation Notes
4
5. The software will check the PC to see if Microsoft.Net Framework 4 is on the installation
computer. This is a Express requirement. If the check finds that Microsoft.Net Framework
is required or an updated version is required, the application will attempt to install the
software directly from the Microsoft website. This will not be possible if there is no internet

Hardware Power Management
Windows may attempt to shut down the network adaptor and USB ports during periods of
inactivity in order to save power. This behaviour is generally undesirable for a kiosk, as they
there are usually many periods of inactivity during the day. When the device 'wakes up', it
takes time to re-establish connection to the peripherals and can result in the message 'Busy'
being displayed for a number of seconds before the user can begin their activities at the kiosk.
The following options have been included to help mitigate this Windows behaviour.
Stop Network Card Sleep
Express makes changes to the computer's registry each time it starts, as per the following
knowledgebase articles.

Bonus Amounts
Bonus amounts are values gifted to the user based upon how much money they insert during
that session. It is an incentive for users to add larger sums to their accounts.
Any bonus value is credited to the user's Quota Balance. Supervisor Net can then be
configured to deduct funds from the user's normal balance first, ensuring that the user spends
their own money before they can spend their bonus money.
This bonus system is configured on the Autoloader tab of the EFT SETUP terminal setup
record. Please consult the Supervisor Net user guide for more information.
Enabling the display of 'Bonus Amounts' will show the user how much bonus they are earning
based upon the value they are reloading their account by. Bonus value is also applicable to the
purchase of casual user tickets.
Add value bonus display is only supported if the calculator option is disabled for the Cash/
Eftpos pages. The calculator can still be displayed on the main page.
Here are some examples:
1. A user is adding value to their account using cash. A complete break-down is displayed to

To activate this feature, tick the Enable Card Refund box.
25
Configuration
Options
Refund Type
There are two types of refund process available - Eftpos and Manual.
Eftpos refund type attempts to automatically refund the user back to a bank card of their
choice, using the Eftpos terminal attached to the kiosk. It is now quite rare for a bank to allow
this mode of operation in an un-attended situation, so please check with your Eftpos supplier
before attempting to enable this option.
A manual refund would be the most common option used. This mode of operation enables the
user to enter their details, including bank account (if being refunded back to their bank
account) or information required for the facility to write them a cheque.
An option to donate the funds is also present for situations where a user, such as a patient in
a hospital, decides that they wish to gift their remaining balance.
Configuration
26
Manual Refund Type
If a Manual Refund is being used, there are three options:
· To Bank Account - The user must enter their bank account details, and an administrator will
then direct-credit that user's account
· By Cheque - The user must enter details including the name to appear on the cheque and
their postage details
· Donation - The user has the option of donating their credit to the facility
Min Refund Amount
A minimum amount can be set to prevent excessive administration costs for small amounts.
Card must be inserted in D3000 Controller
If enabled, a D3000 card acceptor must be fitted to the kiosk. The advantage of this unit is that
it will swallow the card once the refund is complete.
This option is only viable if the card is a Mifare card and the D3000 unit has been fitted with
the optional Mifare reader module.
Why have this option? Why not just disable the ability for the other card mechanisms to
process refunds? The reason for this is that the Serial Card Reader option needs to also be
enabled for refunds, as this is the Mifare card reader fitted to the D3000 unit.
Charge Manual Refund Fee For Donations
In order to cover administrative overheads, a site may elect to charge a fee for processing the
manual refund.
Depending on how the administration of the site is set up, one department may handle the
refunds and therefore require a portion of a donation for processing the refund. On other sites,
the administration may be handled by the same department receiving the donation, therefore a
refund fee does not have to be applied to the donation.
Data Entry Masks
Data Entry Masks enable the ability for the user to be constrained as to what they can enter
for a given field.
This is achieved by entering a series of special characters as a data mask, as well as any
formatting characters, as required.
Valid special characters are 9 (Optional character) and 0 (Mandatory character).
If you are wanting to rename the fields as they appear on the screen to the user, these
strings can be found later in the configuration application under Appearance -> Card Refund
-> Manual Refund Data Entry
Phone Number
The mask for the phone number field. Care must be taken when defining a mask, as there are
often different combinations that are valid. For example:
27
Configuration
09 555 5555
021 555 5555
021 555 555
In this situation, the first few digits are variable, therefore should be made optional, and the
very last digit must be optional also. The mask should therefore be 999 000 0009. Other
characters such as brackets around the area code and dashes between numbers can also
make it easier to read. The final version of the mask would therefore be (999) 000-0009.
The user would be presented with this form:
After filling it in, it may end up looking like this (They don't have a last digit on their number):
Bank Field 1
The mask for the first field of the bank account number. You may get away with only having to
use one bank account field if enough information can be entered on the single line.
Use Bank Field 2
Tells Express whether or not to display the second bank account field on the screen. The
second bank account may not be necessary if everything was able to fit nicely on the first
field.
Bank Field 2
The mask for the second field of the bank account number.
Disbursements
The disbursements (Pricing Models) used for different aspects of the refund process. Refund
and Donation are only for display in the transactions for refunds and donations respectively.
Manual Refund Fee also sets the price of the fee, if applicable. To alter the fee amount, edit
the ADMIN CHARGE pricing model in Supervisor Net, setting the Variable Rate -> Count item
price to the amount of the fee.
After Refund
These options determine what happens to the account once the refund has completed.

Configuration Appendix 1: Manual Refunds
This section will guide you through all the steps required to configure the system to give
manual refunds, including the email configuration required to send the manual refund request
to a system administrator.
Activating Manual Refund functionality
1. In the configuration, under Functions -> Card Refund -> Options, Tick the option Enable
Card Refund
2. Set Refund Type to Manual.
3. Under Manual Refund Type, Choose which types of manual refund to offer the user. The
options are To Bank Account, By Cheque or Donation.
4. Set a minimum allowable amount to be refunded. Any account with less than this will not be
refunded.
129
Configuration Appendix 1: Manual Refunds
Setting the fees
Fees are optional, but a good way to cover administration costs. If this is enabled, the fee will
be deducted from the user's account prior to the refund application being sent to the
administrator.
1. Choose which disbursement (pricing model) you wish to use for the fee. Where possible,
this should be left at the default value of ADMIN CHARGE.
2. Open Supervisor Administrator and then go to Transaction -> Pricing Model
3. Find the pricing model defined in step 1, and edit it.
4. Open the Variable Rate tab and change the Count Item - Price to the value of the refund
fee.
5. If you wish to deduct a refund fee prior to the donation being processed, enable the option
Charge Manual Refund Fee For Donations in the Express configuration tool.
Configuration Appendix 1: Manual Refunds
130
If account balances are less that the fees
There will be situations when a user's account balance is less than the refund fee that you
have set. In addition to this scenario is whether or not a donation is subject to the refund fee,
as described earlier. These two scenarios are covered in more detail below:
1. User's balance is less than refund fee, donations are subject to an admin fee.
Under this circumstance, the user will see the following message:
If they do not respond to the message before the timer expires, it is the same as if they
clicked the No button.
Either way, an Admin Charge transaction is generated and the card is swallowed. There is no
donation transaction generated.
131
Configuration Appendix 1: Manual Refunds
2. User's balance is less than refund fee, donations are NOT subject to an admin fee.
Under this circumstance, it is recommended that you change the message on the above
screen to something like "No refund is payable. If you give us your card back, any balance
remaining on your card will be donated to us. Do you want your card back?"
Be aware that if the user clicks 'No', their card will be swallowed, so the question has to be
worded accordingly. i.e. Don't pose the question such as "Would you like to give us a
donation?"!!
The transaction generated if the card is swallowed is a Donation transaction, rather than an
Admin Charge.
Set the data entry masks
Set the Data Entry Mask s and determine whether or not you will be using the second bank
field.
Customise the field names
You may need to customise the field names that are displayed to the user:
Navigate to Appearance -> Card Refund -> Manual Refund Data Entry
Configuration Appendix 1: Manual Refunds
132
Decide what happens to refunded accounts
You have two options for what to do with an account once a refund has occurred. You can
either delete the account or re-initialise a number of different fields, but leave the account in
the database.
To achieve this, navigate to Functions -> Card Refund -> Options and adjust accordingly in the
section called After Refund.
Configuring the email system
With a manual refund, a notification must be sent to a system administrator. This is configured
in Supervisor Net's notification configuration section.
133
Configuration Appendix 1: Manual Refunds
1. Open Supervisor Administrator
2. Go to Tools -> Supervisor Net Settings...
3. Open the Notifications tab
4. Click on the Template drop down. You will find three templates specific to the manual
refund system
5. Edit the template for each of the manual refund options that you have enabled. The
recipient, subject and body of the email is defined in the template.
There are special variables that are replaced with values from the manual refund system. They
are:
%CardNumber% - The user's Supervisor Net account number (Primary Number)
%Amount% - The amount to be refunded to the user (Minus any refund fee)
%AccountName% - The user's Supervisor Net account name (Primary Name)
%PhoneNumber% - The phone number that the user entered into the form
%Address1% - The first address line that the user entered into the form
%Address2% - The second address line that the user entered into the form
%Address3% - The third address line that the user entered into the form
%Address4% - The forth address line that the user entered into the form
%Address5% - The fifth address line that the user entered into the form
%Bank1% - The first bank account detail field that the user entered into the form
%Bank2% - The second bank account detail field that the user entered into the form
Configuration Appendix 1: Manual Refunds
134
Using a standard card swipe unit
It is possible to use a serial card swipe unit, keyboard emulation reader or the swipe unit built
into the Eftpos terminal for manual refunds.
If you want to use one of these device, navigate to the Card Readers section of the
configuration application and enable the option Use for Refund for those devices you wish to
use.
When the refund is complete, the user walks away with the card. This may be acceptable on
sites using disposable tickets or cheaper cards, but for sites using Mifare card, it may be
better to fit a D3000 card accepting device and Mifare reader, which will keep the card after the
refund completes.
135
Configuration Appendix 1: Manual Refunds
Using a D3000 automatic card acceptor with Mifare reading
module
The D3000 is a motorised card acceptor, connected to the computer via a serial cable. An
additional Mifare unit (Monitor MF_Inserter) is fitted to the device, giving it the ability to read
Mifare cards as they are inserted.
The advantage of using this device is that the user's card is physically removed from them at
the time of the refund, enabling a site to recycle costly cards.
When a kiosks has this unit fitted, the computer must have two spare serial ports - one for the
card reader mechanism and one for the Mifare module.
There are two places in the Express configuration that need to be enabled to use this device:
Enable the D3000
Enable the option Card Readers -> D3000 Controller -> Use For Refund
Configuration Appendix 1: Manual Refunds
136
Enable the serial card reader
The serial card reader option must be enabled, as this is the interface to the Mifare reader
fitted to the D3000.
1. Enable the option Card Readers -> Serial Card Reader -> Use For Refund
2. Change the option Card Readers -> Serial Card Reader -> Baud Rate to 19200
Mandate that it must be used for refunds
If you want cards to only be inserted into the D3000 for refunds, enable the option Functions ->
Card Refund -> Options -> Card must be inserted in D3000 Controller

138
Configuration Appendix 2: Add Value Bonus
The add value bonus system is a great way to incentivise users to add greater amounts to
their account each time they either buy a casual ticket or add funds to their account.
Any bonus value credited to the user goes on to their Quota Balance, whilst the money that
the user actually inserts into the kiosk is credited to their Balance. By doing this, any refund
that the user obtains does not include any bonus value that they have been allocated.
To enable this feature and to configure Express to show the user how much bonus they are
receiving, follow these steps:
Configure Add Value Bonus amounts
In Supervisor Administrator, go to Terminal -> Terminal Setup, and find the record called EFT
SETUP. Open the Autoloader/Cash Register tab and alter the add value bonus settings to the
desired bands.
You are able to give either a percentage of the amount they add as a bonus, or a fixed
amount.
Make the user spend their own money first
It is wise to ensure that the user spends their own money before being able to use their bonus
credit, otherwise a user may put a lot of money on their account and then obtain a refund. If
the administrator forgets to remove the bonus value from the user's Quota Balance account,
that user now has free money.
