Title (EN) SERVICE CONTROL AND MANAGEMENT SYSTEM
(FR) SYSTEME DE CONTROLE ET DE GESTION DE SERVICES
Abstract:
(EN) Service control and management systems, and particularly a system for managing service provision on an hourly basis, are disclosed. The system includes smart cards issued to service recipients and/or individual service providers, smart card readers provided at the locations where services are provided for use at that time, and a host capable of communicating with said readers. Each reader comprises means for initiating a service provision transaction when a recipient card and/or provider card is inserted, means for resetting the service timer for the time between initiation of the transaction and the completion of the service, means for periodically recording service provision data in a non-volatile memory, and means for transmitting said data to the host. The system is useful for service provision management.
