Case Study: KC Stadium

Kiosks4business FIGUR kiosks were deployed in the KC Stadium to enable season ticket holders to access their online account, purchase tickets and add funds to their account. This then enables the supporters RFID bracelets to access the stadium facilities including food and beverages whilst inside the stadium. The kiosks bring real benefits to both the stadium and supporters by helping to reduce queuing times as parts of a move towards a cashless environment.

The Kiosks4business FIGUR model was upgraded with semi-attended payment using chip & pin plus thermal receipt printer, an RFID reader to detect the RFID bracelets, bar code scanner and proximity detector to detect a support approaching the kiosks. The proximity provides a fantastic benefit of being able to run the kiosk as a digital sign until approached by the customer.

Designed with branding in mind, the kiosks was painting black with vinyl branding which could easily be replaced and updated as required. The kiosk also includes colour selectable RGB edge lighting welcoming the user and further enhancing the user experience.

Figur features a portrait oriented screen to keep the kiosk narrow.  The image above shows a few versions of Figur which have been designed to incorporate a ticket or receipt printer.  A wider version is available where the application needs higher volumes of tickets or cards to be printed such as for shows, leisure or sporting events.

Both Figur and Eidos kiosks have been cleverly designed to facilitate the installation of a wide variety of optional devices including bar code scanners, magnetic (or RFID) card readers, printers and much more.  The image above shows both Figur and the wheelchair accessible Eidos kiosk built with the same options which includes:

  • Bar code scanner
  • Printer
  • Magnetic card reader
  • Headphone socket

Introducing the Concept range of configurable touchscreen kiosks. We recognised early on that very few customers require base models of kiosks and many require the addition of bar code scanners, printers, keyboards and other options. Therefore we have designed a number of configurable base model concepts which can be customised with a wide range of additional options. Featuring the same high quality screens and multi-touch touchscreen along with Kiosks4business approved electronics and software expertise, the concept ranges include Eidos, Figur, Acis, Totem, Kendo and Hub models.

Start with the base model requirement - Wall mounted, free standing, DDA compliant kiosks, dual screen versions etc and specify all of the additional devices required for the application - predesigned for quick turnaround.

Whilst some applications are destined for a full-custom solution, it is often desirable to build a development / testing platform using one of the standard kiosk building blocks. Thie ensures applications developers have representative hardware quickly to speed time to market.
