Kiosks continue to penetrate new markets. We are seeing integration with mobile phones, social media sites such as facebook, and new technologies such as NFC (near field communications) and QR codes. At RedDotNet we are on the leading edge of these developments. Our unique hardware designs and flexible development methodology, allows us to quickly create a kiosk application to get your idea to market. Some examples of recent projects include:
Vending Machine Interface
Provide a modern interactive vending machine interface to replace existing mechanical interface. By using an internet connected, interactive interface, new functionality can be provided including loyalty and the automatic upload of customer photographs to facebook.
Critical hardware requirements included a camera, encrypted credit card reader, integrated 3G wireless capability, a panel mounting computer unit and 24/7 operation. A custom user interface was developed for the project, including integration with a credit card payment system and facebook. RedDotNet is also responsible for monitoring the systems, maintenance, and content management.
Collect email based leads for the sponsor at sports events, and upload branded customer images to facebook. The system also provides event related digital signage and entertainment. This system is currently deployed at sports events. Units are mounted on trailers (three units per trailer), which can easily be transported between events.
Critical hardware requirements included small size for trailer mount, camera, durability during transport, integrated 3G wireless. A custom user interface was developed for the project automatic, including upload of customer photographs to facebook. RedDotNet is also responsible for monitoring the systems, maintenance, and content management.
Check-in and Contract Sign-up
Replace the manual processes that are used in fitness facilities to sign-up new customers and to check-in existing customers for various services. Benefits include staffing reductions, and increased accuracy.
Critical hardware requirements included: small size for front desk mounting, credit card reader, 24/7 operation, barcode scanner for driver license ID scanning. A custom user interface was developed for the project including on-screen signature capture and PDF contract document generation and emailing. The system was also integrated with a credit card payment system and a CRM system.
Replace 'take a ticket style' labor intensive food ordering in quick serve restaurants, with a fully automated system. Benefits to the diner include reduced wait times and nutritional information. For the operator increased sales, improved order accuracy, increased diner loyalty, reduced labor costs and reduced printing costs.
Critical hardware requirements included: small size for table top mount, tablet style device with capacitive touch screen, integrated credit card reader, wired Ethernet for increased reliability and 24/7 operation.
Loyalty system for convenience stores. The system uses the integrated secure NFC technology to identify customers using their cell phones and provides a prepaid 'wallet' payment. Customers can also redeem paper coupons using the built in 2D scanner, and print receipts using the integrated 3" printer.
Critical Hardware requirements include: 2D barcode scanner, 3" receipt printer, Encrypted NFC reader, small size for check out aisle mounting, secure wired Ethernet connection
Coupon dispensing system located in public areas such as shopping malls and theater lobbies. Consumers can browse for coupons from local merchants (typically 100 - 500) organized in categories. A Flash video provides additional information. The coupon can be printed using the integrated 3" printer.
Critical Hardware requirements include: 3" coupon printer, 3G wireless connectivity, 24/7 operation in unattended locations.
Ticket based customer flow automation maximizes customer throughput and tracks wait time. Used in healthcare, government, retail and educational organizations.
Critical hardware requirements include: 3" printer for ticket printing, small compact design, 24/7 operation.
