Many organisations have a requirement to pass information and provide resources to their end-users, much of which is moving towards a web-based platform. InformationPoint software helps address this need with a safe and secure system built for ease of use.
In any public access project, content is the key. To succeed, the system must be attractive and easy to use; the presentation has to combine clarity and good looks with reliability and durability to get the job done. Yet traditionally, users with limited IT exposure have been thoroughly alienated by over-complicated and boring software design. Realising this, we have developed software directly addressing these shortcomings to produce a tool that service users will enjoy using and that offers a simple means to get access to the information and contacts they need..
InformationPoint comprises of fully brandable 'attract loop' with images and messaging, a Menu system and landing pages - either web links or uploaded PDF and other documents. InformationPoint includes usage stats, and many more features including the ability for users to email home web links they find useful.
Kiosks4business InformationPoint software is designed specifically for touchscreen kiosks and can be branded in style, colour palette and logo. The InformationPoint software includes a branded animated 'attract loop' which runs while the kiosk is not being used and is designed to encourage use through images, text and a messaging feature. From the outset, the software has been designed for those with little or no experience of using computers or browsing the internet and uses a simple 3-touch approach for the user to find information.
InformationPoint can be used in many varied applications including:
From approaching the kiosk, the user is directed to the relevant information in three steps: attract loop, landing page and portal page.
The attract loop, provides bright and colourful impact, as well as an inbuilt messaging system. It's also one of the opportunities available for heavily branding your system.
The attract loop runs while the machine is not being used and includes your branding, colours and other images. Each frame of the animation can have different images, 'calls to action' and other information. Additionally, a messaging feature is included whereby messages appear on the attract loop. E.g. 'Free CV writing course next Tuesday, for more details please ask at reception'.
Our new design attract loop also includes Date & Clock as well as an option to add a RSS news feed which scrolls along the lower edge of the screen.
The attract loop makes it easy to showcase products and services.
A landing page presents the user with a matrix of subject headings as a starting point to find the information or access a service they are interested in. This page includes your logo and other images. A disclaimer link can also be included as well as links to consultation surveys (optional using SurveyPoint software). The landing page typically includes no more than nine options. This is a deliberate limit imposed on the administrator to ensure that the end-user journey is simple and does not provide too many options at any stage of the process.
A portal page where users interact with websites, online forms and other documents.
