The advance of touch screen technology, combined with the ever more powerful and capable smart phones have lead to the rise of the tablet kiosk. A tablet kiosk not only allows customers to access information, it also allows them to customise and relate with their purchase at the touch of their hand.
All the applications that are available for tablets mean that they can be employed by a vastly wide range of businesses in any industry. With a relatively small cost compared to older touch screen kiosks; it is a cost-effective means for any sized business to interact with their customers.
Location, location, location
Tablet kiosks can be found in (for example) retail stores, where a pre-loaded app can showcase new products, inform of current deals and if so be a point of sale for customers to order to their home address if the particular product is not in-stock. The very same model of table in a similar kiosk can also be employed in a museum as an information resource and learning tool. Our society is becoming more and more reliant on touch screen technology, because the user interface can be so simplistic, it can accessible to anyone. At the same time the computing power of tablets and smart phones is expanding astronomically. As a result we now find ourselves with a hugely versatile product, with endless possibilities.
Simultaneously the kiosks that house the tablets have to develop and innovate to keep up, whilst the tablet takes care of the actual interaction, a tablet kiosk has to complement the beauty of the design of the tablet it is housing. Not only complement but also protect; protect from accidental damage and if so, vandalism or theft.
To complete a full package, the ergonomics and aesthetics are just as important as the functionality and security. Once all these aspects are fully addressed, you will find a beautiful technological asset to any business or organisation.
