We are looking for a hotel guest room internet access and billing system. There are about 150 rooms in total.
Guest Internet Billing System: This system should allow guests to use the internet from the comfort of their own room. All that they need to do is plug their laptop into the dedicated internet point situated in every room. Some guest may not want to install anything on their pc so it should still work. I think we need to construct something like a proxy server software when user opens ie and tools->internet options->connections tab->lan settings he points to the main server in the hotel where the software will be installed. On the first web hit say to '[url removed, login to view]' he will get an authorization page from the proxy to give username and pass and also choose kind of service. More described below....
Whenever guests opens their web browser, are requested to enter their room number and password (or some kind of authentication method). This identifies them selves to the system and ensures that there is no unauthorized or free access to the internet (Admin can setup free accounts for business center if needed). After their password has been verified a web page will be displayed informing them about the costs involved with using the system, and/or any other important information that the hotel deems necessary.
The charging method for this system should be very flexible, and the hotel has full control over how much to charge and over what time periods that charge applies. Once the guest finishes using the internet a charge is issued by the system. The charging prices and durations are fully configurable, and should be easily set or changed by the hotel management at any time.
A frame would be added which allows the user to log off the internet system and then charges will stop. Charges will also automatically stop (the user will be logged out) if the user stops accessing webpages for 1 minute. The access time of the last webpage and the 1 minute will then be subtracted to ensure they are not charged for the minute that they did not utilize the internet.
Charge schema is as follows:
Per hour charge:
1 continues hour $$: This means that when customer accepts this option, then he/she will have one uninterrupted hour to use the internet and usage will stop in exactly an hour.
8 hours for $$$
12 hours for $$$$
24 hours open connection package $$$$$
This should be configurable by the hotel management so no hardcoding anywhere pls. Maybe some xml file stores this values or something in program settings.
Guest check out: At this time a bill is printed by verifying room number and internet usage and presented to customer. This can be a simple html page bill no need for any sophistication. Maybe just get dataset from the db using vb.net and create xml and have layout xsl and then generate like a html simple bill.
I want your interest reply by 20th September.
