Information Kiosk Resources
Thinking about implementing information kiosks? Here are some helpful tips.
First Time Kiosk Owners
Without software, a kiosk is an enclosure with a touch screen, a computer and an operating system. Kiosk software like TouchPresenter brings the kiosk to life. Which to purchase first depends on the type of hardware bought and its time of delivery.Read More
Planning ahead for a successful rollout
Unless off-the-shelf hardware like all-in-one touch computers is selected, it is of advantage to purchasing the kiosk software at the time of ordering the kiosk enclosure, as in many cases it takes several weeks and months until a custom configured, branded kiosk gets delivered. This time in between could be used to get all kiosk content-related tasks underway.
Among major decisions are: The kiosk location and its infrastructure (electrical outlets, internet connection,...), purpose and goal of the kiosk(s), kiosk content (what content and artwork and who is creating it (internal or external sources), navigation, assignment of responsibilities during planning, execution and maintenance.
