Hands down, the fastest and easiest to use software in the industry. Issue cards in seconds, not minutes. 

 Think about it.

     This is a complex device. It ties into your reservation system (optional, you don't need a reservation system for use), updates from your reservation system. Uses that data to determine if a card holder is valid or not valid, opens the gate, takes pictures, issues cards, returns cards, reads cards. The system has to do all of these not so simple things, yet be simple to use.

   Great Gate Software does it all!

Great GateTM Software includes three distinct functions, Front Desk, Custom Setup, and Gate Client:


It can’t possibly get any easier than Great Gate TM.

It can’t possibly get any faster than Great Gate TM.    

In most instances you touch the screen twice, swipe the card and hand it to your customer. It can’t get easier than that. 


  Nothing can be any faster!

Any time any card is swiped, valid or not, night or day, a picture is taken and a detailed log entry is made. It can’t get any better than Great Gate TM.  

Display a personal message to a specific cardholder such as “There is an issue with your reservation, please come to the office.” or perhaps, “Happy Birthday!”.

  • Define in your words what public message to display before a card is swiped, such as “Bingo Night is Friday at 8:00 PM in the Main Building Hall, join us and have fun!” and perhaps “The pool is closed today for maintenance.”  
  • Define in your words what message is scrolling on the bottom, such as “Firewood only 3 dollars, fill your Propane here as low as 11 dollars.”  





















Your customers approach the gate; they see any announcements about activities or sales. In fact,  they see anything that you declare in your own words. Your company logo is branded on the screen. They swipe the card they were issued, or their credit card if they chose that route, and one of two things occur.  

They have a valid reservation and are entering the grounds as a customer in good standing. Their information, messages and greetings are displayed, the Public Message Area turns all green and the gate opens for them.  


They do not have a valid reservation, or perhaps they are being denied entrance because you have issues with them that need to be addressed, or perhaps they handed the card to a car behind them to gain free admittance to your facilities. The Public Message area turns all red. The gate does not open. A message is displayed to inform them of why the gate did not open.  


A picture is taken and the event is logged.

GREAT GATE TM there is nothing on the market like it!
