The Reader software was designed to allow you to easily enquire about information of a Microchip number from the site. And along with a Microchip reader you can just scan the chip and our software will check the database and return information if available of the pet. The software can also be minimized to the tray bar, where it will run in the background and wait for any scans from Microchip readers. This allows you to carry on with work and let the software only appear when a chip has been scanned. We know Microchips aren’t part of everyday life, so why should it bother you the entire the day long when it can hide and only show when you need it?
The software is available at http://www.getmeknown.co.za/product/software .
Our software integrates advertising, in a way that does not bother the end-user.
Advertisements are shown on the Main Screen and on the Pet Information Screen if no Image is available for the pet. They are cycled and randomly shown from the website. Views and Clicks are available on Request.
