The kiosk tablet is revolutionary for modern businesses, the applications are truly endless. We now find them being used as point of sale systems, informative displays or have even replaced the menu card! The versatility of the tablets, means that the same tablet incorporated in the same stand could be used in every different environment it is needed. All that needs to be changed is the application it runs.
What is the best enclosure?
However, naturally there are different enclosures and stands that are best suited to different situations, for example if the table is only being used to display, the touch screen and portability functions can be done away with and the tablet wholly encased in a protective ‘shell’. If the interactivity aspects are sought after, a system has to be employed that does not hinder these whilst simultaneously protecting and guarding the device. These systems are more interesting for retailers, or trade show exhibitors, who want the public to interact with their devices. Because not only does it showcase your product, it can also be a powerful marketing tool at creating a positive brand image.
All too often, tablets are secured with a simple metal wire. This is still common in some retail stores, and although they may put off the less determined criminals, it does not stop those armed with some small wire cutters. Thankfully systems have been developed to stop such crimes.
Ultimately the positives make for an invaluable tool, which any business can benefit from. The kiosk tablet is a cost effective platform not only to interact with the public, but can also be utilised by the workforce in any number of ways. As any resource and tool, it should be protected.
