Kiosk Simplifies Wireless Kiosk Deployments » read source
Together with TeraNova Consulting Group and Nationwide CDMA Wireless Providers, Kiosk Information Systems is providing a much simplified, bundled approach to wireless kiosk deployments. The fundamental benefit of deploying kiosks with integrated wireless capability is position flexibility. Without the commitment and expense of hard-wiring equipment, clients can experiment to find the ideal "sweet spots" that provide maximum traffic and return.
"By partnering with TeraNova, a best-in-class hardware and communications expert for the self service sector, KIOSK enables their clients to offload 100% of the communications logistics and back-end support requirements. Removing the barriers of in-building network deployment provides significant competitive advantage in overall cost and speed to market," said Tom Weaver, VP of Sales and Marketing for KIOSK.
"With wireless functionality becoming a common requirement in the communications roadmap of KIOSK's client base, we wanted to be proactive in bundling all the necessary services to significantly simplify the process. Ease of integration for our customers has always been a cornerstone of KIOSK's solution design philosophy, and is exemplified well in this wireless product / service bundle," added Weaver.
Kiosk placement is an essential element in customer adoption and solution ROI, but ideal pilot positioning can be somewhat elusive. KIOSK is partnering with TeraNova, Kiosk Connectivity Specialists, to manage the full lifecycle requirements including testing, staging, and full on-going support and management of the wireless solution.
"Kiosk clients are able to return to focusing on their core business when the complexities of telecommunications design, deployment, and management are outsourced to industry experts. By leveraging this turn-key solution approach with KIOSK and TeraNova, customers can efficiently bridge both wireless and wireline environments and rest assured that consistent uptime and connection reliability are solidly in place," said Natasha Royer Coons, Managing Director of TeraNova.
