Hotels/Convention Centers cell phone charging kiosk

  • Hotels/Convention Centers -  Event info, headline news articles that can be accessed by the touch of a finger, local maps that show popular surrounding restaurants, entertainment info and attractions (available with our touch screen applications), advertising
Example:
The front desk will never again have to pull out their box of lost/found chargers to service their hotel guests.   As an alternative source of power, business people will benefit when misplacing their home chargers and need to stay in-touch with clients and receiving mobile e-mails.

  • Whether your hotel targets business travelers, vacationing guests, or a combination of both, kiosks and digital signage can increase sales and productivity by showing dynamic multimedia messages. These tools help people check-in quickly, find where they're going, and spend more money at your on-site facilities or with your partners and affiliates. Here are some of the most popular applications:

    Lobby Way finding Systems: Guests can use touch screen directory kiosks to locate their room or an event and easily map the route to it. The hotel directory kiosk can also print a hard copy, complete with coupons or ads for on-site restaurants and other services.

    Room and Event Schedules: Instead of printing paper schedules with each day's event schedule and locations, hotel staff can post the schedules to digital signs. These can be programmed to change automatically based on predetermined schedules, or last-minute changes to the hotel calendar.

    Guest Check-In Kiosks: Customers can bypass the front desk and use a self-service check-in kiosk to retrieve their room key, purchase room upgrades, and perform other common functions. By reducing the load on front desk staff, the hotel kiosks make check-in faster for all guests -- even those that don't use the self-service machines.

    In-Room Barker Channels: In-room channels can be controlled with the same software that handles the room and event schedules, making it easier to deliver the same information and promotions throughout the facility. Messages can be controlled from the home office or customized on a per-hotel or regional basis.

 

Universities, Schools cell phone charging kiosk

  • Universities - On-campus news, calendar of events, video tours, campus maps for new students or send real-time information in the event of an on/off campus emergency, advertising
Example:
Cell Phone- Exhausted battery during evening classes from talking or texting fellow students, IPod users- listening to class lectures or music are just a few reasons student will benefit from this station. 

 

Malls & Shopping Centers cell phone charging kiosk

  • Malls - store sales, POS text messages sent to mobile phones on discounts, mall map, special announcements to increase mall traffic during holidays
Example:
Keeping customers shopping longer and readily available point of sale information will increase mall revenue.

 

Health & Fitness cell phone charging kiosk

  • Health & Fitness Clubs- video tours on Aerobic classes, personal training and nutritional programs, health news, family & friends discounts and demo videos for new members during health club tours
Example:
Add value to you club by introducing a new piece of equipment that informs your members on health news and club information, at the same time will charge their IPod or MP3 players.
Sports Arenas

    Sports arenas-Sports scores, schedules, historical stats including information on players/teams/events,  map of stadium and paid advertisements

    Healthcare digital signage / DID

    • Waiting in a hospital, clinic or doctor's office can be quite frustrating. Even in the best facilities, unexpected events can create long wait times for patients and their families. Meanwhile, HIPAA and other regulations have increased the complexity of patient handling, making it crucial that healthcare staff stay up-to-date on current procedures. By using kiosks and digital signage, healthcare providers can communicate key information to various stakeholders, reduce waiting times, and even stimulate sales of additional services.

      Digital Signage in Waiting Areas: By placing digital signage displays in waiting areas throughout your health system, you can help make the wait more enjoyable for patients and those accompanying them. These displays typically carry a mix of news, health and wellness information, and your own promotional content. In larger facilities, the content can be tailored to each department, e.g. showing information on childproofing your home in the hospital waiting area for new parents. When appropriate, airtime can be used to promote higher-margin services that you offer, such as cosmetic surgery.

      Private TV Networks in Patient Rooms: Provide patients with an additional programming choice in their rooms, using a centralized media player that connects to existing TVs across your facility. This approach is similar to a waiting area display, but the programming loop is optimized for longer content. Since you maintain control of the programming, you can use the screen time for showing patient success stories, inspirational messages, partner advertising, or other content of your choice.

      Touch screen Directories and Way finding Systems: Way finding kiosks help patients navigate your facility without having to ask for directions, improving patient satisfaction and increasing the chance that they will arrive at their appointment on time. Hospital maps can be updated remotely, allowing you to manage an entire network of hospital directory kiosks from a central location.

      Patient Registration and Check-In Kiosks: Let patients use self-service kiosks to fill out new patient profiles, update their insurance and contact info, and schedule future appointments with health care providers. These touch screen medical kiosks make life easier on your staff, while reducing wait times for patients. Hospital kiosks can also integrate with larger self-service initiatives and patient registration systems, such as those that provide web-based appointment requests and insurance claims.

      Staff Training: By placing digital signs in break rooms and other common areas across your health system, you can help staff members learn about new office policies, updated safety procedures, new treatments being offered, and more. In cases where you need to make sure that each employee views the content, interactive kiosks provide self-directed viewing and automated skills testing. Compliance reports are then submitted electronically to your database.

     

Airports, Terminals, Stations cell phone charging kiosk

  • Airports - show flight arrivals & departures, FAA services announcements and a map of the airport showing terminals, a scrolling ticker for sports/NASDAQ info sports bars, restaurants, and cafes 
Example:
Our service will allow people to stay in contact with family, friends and co-workers during a flight delay.

 

Airports, Terminals, Stations digital signage / DID

  • People are traveling more than ever, but the logistics of getting from point A to point B can be stressful for travelers and costly for transit providers. Using digital signage and kiosks, you can make travelers more satisfied with their experience, while reducing the costs associated with ticketing and other transactions. Some applications include:

    Arrival/Departure and Weather/News Displays: Airport flight information display systems, that show arrival and departure times, have been around for decades. In recent years, some enterprising airports, rail stations, and bus depots have upgraded these screens to show real-time information on trip delays, weather, news and sports coverage, stock market updates, and other information that passengers might want. These next-generation displays can reduce the workload for staff members (since fewer travelers are asking them for schedule updates), and also cut down on the perceived waiting time for passengers. In some cases, advertising time is sold to marketers who want to reach travelers. For example, a restaurant in New York might advertise in airports nationwide, but only at the gates that have flights heading to New York.

    In-Vehicle Displays: Although today's travelers are probably most familiar with the in-seat entertainment provided by select airlines, there are benefits to placing in-vehicle displays in taxis, buses, and trains as well. In addition to giving travelers something to watch while on the trip, these displays can show updated status for mass transit vehicles (e.g. time to destination), ads for local or national marketers, and branding messages related to the carrier or public transportation provider itself. In the case of taxis and airlines, where there is generally one screen per passenger, the viewer might even use a touch screen to control which content they see, order airline snacks, and pay for taxi fares.

    Ticketing, Check-In and Way finding Kiosks: Make it easy for travelers to purchase tickets, check-in for travel, and locate where to board planes, rail, and buses -- all using a touch screen interface. These functions may all be provided by the same interactive kiosk, or split up into separate devices like automated ticketing machines, check-in kiosks, and tourism info centers. Way finding kiosks can also be helpful for people who are meeting travelers at the airport, locating baggage claim and connecting gates, or visiting a metro transit facility for the first time.

Banking & Financial digital signage / DID

  • The bank branch, much like any other place of business, has undergone a radical shift in the past two decades.   Sociologists can do a far better job than I at explaining why our retail stores, banks and restaurants look so different today than just a few years ago. Part of it is competition, no doubt, the constant need to offer new enticements to get customers to walk in your door rather than the one next door. Part of it is the sheer proliferation of products and services, more than at any other time in history. And part of it is a populace that is growing smarter by the day and more aware of what they can expect from you.   But I would submit that the greatest driver behind the change in the face of the business world is a heightened understanding on the part of the consumer about the experience he is having when he does business with you. Twenty years ago, it was enough for a cafe to have really good coffee at a price that was considered fair; today, that cafe needs to also factor in all of the emotional trappings of the in-store experience, such as color scheme and ambient music, right down to the aesthetic value of the furniture.   These things have always been important on some level, but today’s consumer is much more demanding when it comes to him. Today’s consumer knows that he’s not just paying for the coffee, he’s paying for the whole experience surrounding that purchase. And he wants that experience to be a good one.   For financial institutions, this shift comes at a pivotal time. Many of the transactions that once required a trip to the branch are now done from the home computer, and online financial services providers are snapping at the heels of large banks, offering attractive rates and terms.   As it has done with retail, digital signage allows banks and financial institutions to hone the in-store experience with a level of precision and visual appeal that has never before been possible. It is an evolution that is in process, and one that will result in the total reinvention of the bank branch.

    In an effort to win new customers and convince existing ones to use more services, many banks are turning to digital signage and kiosks as a way to improve the banking experience and communicate better with customers. Here are some popular applications for branch banking:

  • Waiting Area Displays: While customers are waiting in line for tellers or elsewhere in the branch, digital signs can serve as dynamic bank message boards, delivering compelling messages about current rates and the benefits of signing up for new products and services. In some cases, the bank messaging is placed alongside live TV and news feeds, ensuring that the content remains interesting and up-to-date. See our digital signage overview for more details on these applications.

  • Product Information and Transactional Kiosks: Using a touch screen system, customers can browse for available products, see how interest rates and terms might affect their mortgage payments, and more. By educating customers with a bank kiosk, they are more likely to sign up for higher-margin services and expand their relationship with the bank or credit union. Self-service banking kiosks can also serve transactional functions, such as handling name and address changes or letting customers apply for a credit card account, mortgage, or other loan.
