How to Easily Create a digital signage kiosk?

Whether they serve as a digital sign or a dynamic kiosk, interactive terminals are gradually becoming a favorite tool for boosting customer relations.
 
Interactive kiosks have become a common sight in stores (at the point of sale or in a display window), tourist offices, museums, city halls, hotels, restaurants and lobby areas, and can be used in conjunction with other digital technology such as screens, tablets, and smartphones. 
 
This article provides a quick, clever way to create a customized interactive touch terminal for your customers. 
 

1 – What is the purpose of the touch terminal?

A digital information kiosk can serve a wide variety of purposes, which vary according to the company and the location. They may be used to inform, communicate, advise, distract, share, play, promote, boost sales, pay, order, and more. Installing a touch terminal in a store or other site requires a significant investment. It is important to determine specific goals in both quantitative (sales, number of visitors, etc.) and qualitative terms (brand image, customer loyalty, etc.) before investing in this technology.
 


2 – What sorts of hardware solutions are appropriate?

By choosing a flexible hardware solution, you can be sure of quick deployment and integration within your company’s information system. Therefore, one clever solution is to use a touch tablet and configure it to be used to meet customers’ needs. Take, for example, a Samsung Android tablet, install it on a frame or customized console, make sure there is a proper Internet connection (Wi-Fi, 3G, or 4G), and you have the basic components of an interactive touch-screen kiosk.


3 – How do I choose the right touch application for the kiosk?

En optant pour cette solution hardware avec tablette tactile, vous simplifiez considérablement le choix de l’applicatif. En effet, vous pourrez non seulement proposer à votre clientèle une application sur-mesure développée par une agence, mais aussi télécharger et installer des applications via le Play Store directement sur votre borne. Par exemple dans un magasin, vous pouvez mettre à disposition de vos clients un catalogue multimédia mis à jour en temps réel via une application dédiée, mais aussi leurs proposer d’accéder à votre chaine de vidéos via l’application YouTube.


4 – How can a tablet be configured as a touch terminal?

Configuring the tablet is a key step in transforming it into an interactive tablet. To do this, we offer a kiosk application included as part of the MediaContact Mobile Device Management (MDM) software. This feature makes it possible to limit a user’s access to one or more applications chosen by the administrator. By locking the device in this way, you create a secure environment that restricts the use of the tablet to whatever the company wishes. Customers cannot modify the tablet’s system settings.

Other settings, such as the Wi-Fi connection, the choice of browser, and interactions between the application and the information system may also come into play. MediaContact’s Mobile Application Management (MAM) features also make it possible to install and update applications on the terminal and to synchronize data with the information system.
