In a business environment where efficiency and security are essential, kiosk mode has become a key solution for many companies. This webinar by Applivery and Elo explores how to manage devices in kiosk mode effectively and securely, highlighting best practices and tools available to optimize IT team operations.

Why Kiosk Mode?

Kiosk mode is fundamental for many industries due to its ability to transform technical team operations by enabling:

  • Greater control: Limits device use to specific applications and settings, ensuring users can only access necessary functionalities.
  • Customization: Allows customization of the interface and user experience, which can enhance satisfaction and efficiency.
  • Remote management: Facilitates the management and monitoring of devices from a centralized location.
  • Security: Prevents users from accessing critical device settings, thus protecting the system and data.

Use cases for Kiosk Mode

Kiosk mode is used in various sectors, including:

  • Fast Food Restaurants: For automated ordering and payment.
  • Retail: Supermarkets, stores, and gas stations use kiosks for information and self-checkout.
  • Airports: For navigation and access to services.
  • Hotels: For automated check-in and check-out.
  • Wellness: Gyms and beauty centers for managing appointments and services.

Synergy Between Elo and Applivery: Optimizing Kiosk Mode

Elo offers a wide range of touch devices, from 7” to 65”, specifically designed for kiosk mode applications.

Some key features of Elo’s hardware are:

  • Frameless Monitors: Ideal for integration into custom structures.
  • Modular Design: Facilitates assembly and maintenance.

This collaboration improves communication and the escalation of technical issues, addressing hardware and software problems with greater agility and effectiveness.
