If you want to use fids3 as staff-, mobile proxy-, webserver- or subsystem to control any portion of peripheral devices, a software module for data synchronization with the existing (master) fids and fids3 is the only thing you have to add.

Fids3 provides a wide range of client notification interfaces as well. This feature is an easy way to notify external clients (e.g. car rentals, hotel lobbies, cargo/catering facilities,,,) using standard communication structures (SMS, Email, HTTP, FTP, TCP Sockets).
