0001-2

Customers are more tech-savvy than ever, with many working, organizing their lives, and finding entertainment through a range of smart devices and digital solutions. So it makes sense that they want the businesses servicing them to keep up with technological innovations that fit into their increasingly digital lives. So how exactly can businesses do this? The answer is simple and lies in the implementation of digital kiosks in brick-and-mortar locations.

Unfortunately, these solutions can be prohibitively expensive for many businesses. This is where mobile device management, or MDM, providers like AirDroid Business step in, offering businesses of any size a quick, easy and inexpensive solution to implementing a digital kiosk strategy through its kiosk mode and range of other features.

So how can you make your devices work for you? To help you find inspiration, we’ve pulled together a list of kiosk ideas for any industry.

Real Estate

Realtors can streamline and simplify the registration process at open houses and rental viewings by adopting digital kiosks that allow potential buyers and renters to register their details upon arrival. This saves on paper and data-entry time for the realtors and enables a smooth registration experience for those viewing a property.

Queue Management

Queues are a known hassle for any business that requires customers to check-in, and digital kiosks are the perfect solution to streamline the check-in process. Simply place a kiosk at relevant points within a business where customers can check-in, enter any preliminary details, specify their service, and receive a number.

Employee Directories

A receptionists’ duties can be simplified with the implementation of employee directory kiosks within the lobby of a business. Using these kiosks, visitors and vendors will have the ability to search and find their contact, and even potentially notify the desired employee to announce their arrival.

Hotel Check-In

Ever arrived at a hotel after a long haul, international flight to find the check-in line is about a mile long? Hotels can use digital kiosks to help weary travelers to streamline the check-in process. Guests can enter their details, take a photo of their ID, or specify any extras or add-ons.  The results? Guests can simply wait in line to collect their key. 

Contest Entries

Does your business regularly run competitions? Running these initiatives can be more work than expected, especially when paper submissions have to be manually collated and categorized. Digital kiosks can be placed just after check-out, where customers can register their details to streamline the entry process. The result? No need for paper submissions while reducing a contest manager’s workload.

Educational, Interactive Timelines

Is your business proud of its history? Perhaps you run an independent museum and are looking to move away from static displays? A digital kiosk is a perfect way to educate and inform visitors through an interactive multimedia experience that combines images and video with facts and data to create a memorable, educational, and engaging experience.

Needless to say, the possibilities for digital kiosks are only limited by your imagination. If you don’t see a kiosk suggestion for your industry, please let us know in the comments, and we will work to include a relevant suggestion in the next part of the series.
