Product name:Information Kiosk
First, let us introduce What is an information kiosk? This is a computer-like device combining specialized hardware,
software and connectivity options, designed to provide certain information to people in public places. Generally Speaking,
an information kiosk is an embedded or IT system featuring software based on microprocessors or micro controllers that are
integrated into a specific enclosure. For customers, an info kiosk is a tool that presents information in a visually pleasing and
digestible format, increases their engagement and helps them make decisions. Digital information kiosks have a range of
distinctive features. Limited functionality — unlike computers, electronic kiosks can perform a limited set of functions (or only one function)
associated with a specific industry. Self-service — via kiosks, people can independently access necessary information about products
or services or perform some transactions without assistance. Public availability — kiosks are installed in public venues (airports, stores,
hospitals, malls, government establishments), so they are designed for public usage. Any visitor or passer-by can make use of these
electronic devices to receive certain benefits. Remote control and management — since kiosks may be scattered around large cities
and in remote locations, kiosk owners (administrators) are able to update software, adjust settings and change content remotely.
They can also troubleshoot their devices without on-site visits. Types of Information Kiosks. Electronic information kiosks may come in
various shapes, sizes, and various locations and conditions, providing different degrees of interactivity. Thus, they are categorized into
several groups. By shape and size. Freestanding — devices standing on their own on the floor without being attached to anything.
This is the most popular type of self-service machine. Wall-mounted — compact, versatile devices of space-saving size. They are attached
to the wall and are a perfect fit for premises with limited floor space but high demand for information services. By location.
Outdoor — typically large freestanding machines with a thick steel enclosure designed to withstand rain, heat, frost and other weather
conditions. Their massive size prevents tampering and ensures durability, while large screens aim to project advertisements to a wide area
and attract customers from a distance. Indoor — devices that are more flexible in size and shape and don’t need a high degree of protection,
unlike outdoor variants. These can be product information kiosks in shopping centers, check-in solutions in medical organizations, self-service
payment terminals in banks and more. Interactive — customers receive information or perform transactions through direct interaction with
the menu system via a trackball, keyboard, or touch screen. Interactive information kiosks are widely used in venues with high foot traffic
(for example, airports or hotel lobbies). Non-interactive — customers receive the information displayed on a screen without the ability to
perform any activities. Such passive stands are typically used for advertising in digital signage systems. There are also custom models that
can combine features of devices from various categories. A custom model can be built to satisfy individual business requirements of a company.
The cost of custom solutions may be higher, but the result will be perfect. Information Kiosk Structure. Regardless of size, type and function,
such digital products have a typical structure: they all consist of hardware and software components. Once hardware components are assembled,
special software is needed to breathe life into the system and make it useful for customers. Operating System. Just like PCs, kiosks can’t work
without an operating system that provides essential tools and drivers needed to identify hardware peripherals and run applications. In most cases,
kiosks use traditional OS like Microsoft Windows, Android, iOS, Linux, etc. However, there are operating systems designed purely for kiosks, such as
FireCast OS. Application Software. A kiosk’s application is a software program responsible for the look and feel, usability and functional logic of a device.
You can create an attractive user interface with graphics, animations, or video that will be displayed on the screen of your kiosk. Customers interact
with the application via the keyboard or touch screen. As a rule, applications are written from scratch to be tailored to specific business needs.
But available apps can also be modified and installed in kiosks. Management Software. This type of software is responsible for setting up, updates,
security and content management. What’s important is that all these activities can be done remotely, which saves time and money. Technical
specialists don’t have to visit each unit to fix an issue, update an app or download new information. Industries Using Information Kiosks. Information
kiosk systems are omnipresent nowadays. Who uses them? Practically any industry can benefit from deploying self-service embedded systems in its
business processes. The following is a list of industries that actively implement kiosks for various purposes. Retail. Large shopping centers and small
retail stores worldwide are probably the most active adopters of digital kiosks. Brands use them to display catalogs of their products and services,
announce sales and special offers, highlight trending items and even enable payments. Thus, customers can quickly look through the items in stock
and check the availability of a product of needed size or color. Healthcare. Numerous medical practices and hospitals use kiosks to facilitate the check-in
process, search information in medical health records and manage documentation. Drugstores utilize kiosks to organize queuing systems. Transportation.
In airports, bus and railway stations, you can find information kiosk systems that help passengers generate and print tickets, check in automatically and find
their platforms and gates using a map. Hospitality. Hotels, bars and restaurants place kiosks in their lobbies to allow guests to book a room or a table, and
find information on the offered services and nearby attractions. In quick-service restaurants, you can make an order and pay for it without cashier assistance.
Government establishments. Various state offices and institutions implement kiosks to manage visitor flows and provide relevant official information (visiting hours,
telephone numbers, regulations, laws, resolutions, etc.), thus freeing employees and streamlining operations. Education. Students use interactive kiosk solutions
installed in colleges, universities and campuses to register for classes and extracurricular activities, learn about various events and find learning materials,
for example, by looking through library catalogs. We could continue the list, but we want to say that businesses in any industry can reap the benefits of this technology
if they have content that should be publicly distributed. Let’s discuss some core advantages your business will experience if you decide to use digital kiosks.
