1. General Introduction
Concerning the functions of the HOCASWin program described in this manual we give
the following general information:
For the Transponder Key Card System as well as for the Magnetic Key Card System,
there is no difference in the usage of the program functions of HOCASWin. Both systems
will have the same program-workspace.
The functioning of the HOCASWin is based on the Windows-Standard, that means
among other things, passing equal function keys when using program functions, e.g.
function key "Coding <F5>", "ESC"-key, and so on.
Before HOCASWin can be used, several specific data have to be entered in the admini-
stration part of the program which should only be done by trained and experienced per-
sons. Therefore we recommend not to use the program functions described in this ma-
nual without considering the subsequent pre-conditions:
Intensive and personal preparatory training for the system users and the system-
administrator.
The standard training should take 2-3 days.
Following persons of the hotel should participate the training:
Front-Office-Manager
Assistant Front-Office-Manger
EDP Manager (Fulltime)
Security Manager (Parttime)
Housekeeping Manager (Parttime)
Engineering, Techn. Support (Parttime)
System-Administrator

8.4. issue standbycard
The standbycard is a reserve guest key which can be used in case of breakdown of
the cardcoder or of the HOCAS or Messerschmitt System-PC.
The difference to guest keys is that the standbycard doesn`t have an expiration date.
That means, this card is valid without limitation.
Because of this reason there should be created one or two standbycards for each
room and stored in a safe place, e.g. front-office- or security-manager.
If an old standbycard is not available anymore or lost, this standbycard can be made in-
valid by creating a new standbycard for this room. Then this new standbycard has to be
used once at the specific room door to make the old standbycard invalid immediately.
