How Do They Work?

Like our digital signage media players, our digital kiosks are ‘plug and play’. This means all you have to do is connect your digital kiosk to a power supply and watch as your content loads within seconds. All you need is a plug socket and an internet connection (ethernet or WIFI) to bring your content to life. If you need to change the content on your kiosk, simply log in to your account via our website and make the changes you need. If you ever need support each one of our digital kiosks comes installed with TeamViewer (remote support). This means wherever you are, and wherever we are we will be able to provide you with the support you need. 

Our digital kiosks are powered by powerful android media players (mini PC) that hide out of site.

Our kiosks are availible in sizes from 43″ to 55″ inches meaning you can rest easy knowing your content will be displayed in a clear and attractive manner.

What Are Digital Kiosks Used For?

The power and awesomeness of a digital kiosk are reflected in its many uses and coverage of diverse industries they are employed in. Arguably wayfinding is one of the most popular uses of interactive digital kiosks. By simply installing a wayfinding kiosk in a lobby or hallway you can drastically increase customer and visitor satisfaction. They also help in cutting down the number of people who get lost on the way to meetings.

Another common use of digital kiosks is advertising. Many of our clients will install a digital kiosk in an area that experiences a high footfall (foot traffic), and will display adverts on the screen. This has given our clients an extra revenue stream that they can invest back into their business. Larger outdoor kiosks are great to increase brand awareness and ensure your brand is top of mind amongst potential customers.

Other uses for digital kiosks include Welcome content, social media, information hubs, and many more. To discuss how a digital kiosk could be used at your business, contact the team today.
