Today, Advanced Kiosks debuted the Island Kiosk, a self-service solution that puts a fashionable spin on the kiosk printing stations of old. Based on previous similar kiosk models, the Island’s sleek design and ability to accommodate up to four touchscreen kiosk stations designates it as one of the most innovative kiosk designs in our self-service product line.
Kiosk Printing With Style
The brushed stainless-steel enclosure and marine lacquered hardwood top and trim, give the Island a contemporary look that makes it a perfect addition to university academic halls, building lobbies, airport terminals, hospitals and other high traffic locales that call for self service with style.
With the ability to be configured with two full size printers (laser or thermal) and anywhere from one to four kiosk touchscreen stations, the Island packs tremendous value and flexibility into its compact, stylish frame. While kiosk printing systems tend to be known for their bulky, utilitarian looks, our design team went out of their way to ensure that the Island did not sacrifice elegance for efficiency.
Whether it’s the burdensome cost of expensive ink or the endless hassle of recurring paper jams, printers have remained a source of frustration since they went mainstream in the 1980’s. Combine these struggles with the continued digitization of our world, and it’s no surprise that more people and organizations are moving in the direction of shared printers and self-service stations.
Despite digital trends, official government or medical documents, university assignments, business contracts, and other high value items continue to be dominated by paper. For vital document needs like these, solutions like the Island Kiosk represent a valuable service opportunity for businesses, universities, and other organizations with a commitment to customer service and efficiency.
With an eye toward the busy environments where the Island kiosk’s multi user services are in demand, Advanced Kiosks’ dedicated engineers built in an arsenal of robust performance benefits and services:
- Self-service printing of documents and forms
- Self check-in and Queuing
- Intranet, network or online access
- 24/7 access to reduce staffing demands
- Present applications, web content or systems of your choice
Examples of applications include:
- Promote upcoming events, advertising and special deals
- Recruit users and collect sign-ups for programs
- Manage employee benefits and other HR tasks
- Provide users access to accounts for interactivity and maintenance
- Manage visitors, customers or patients with queuing and self check in
- Allow users to apply for memberships and other customer programs
- And much more!
The standard Island Kiosk bundle comes configured with two full size laser printers and two computer kiosk terminals. Each kiosk is equipped with a 19” horizontal touchscreen, a tamper proof Wi-Fi antenna, ethernet port, internal amplified stereo speakers, a 1.83 GHz Quad Core processor with 4GB DDR3 memory and a 60GB solid state drive. Upgrades are available for up to four interactive kiosk terminals and many additional features such as credit card processing, web cameras and thermal printers with retraction control.

More Than Just Kiosk Hardware
The difference between an Advanced Kiosks self-service solution and “the other guys”, is the inherit value of many years of kiosk engineering experience and our never-ending goal of providing the complete solution. In addition to the 100% commercial grade hardware used to build every kiosk we make, each one comes preloaded our entire Zamok Software Suite. This kiosk management software gives our customers the power to do more, right out of the box!
Zamok kiosk software provides tools for kiosk administration such as:
- Cloud access allows users to remotely manage, monitor and update all kiosks in the field right from their own desktop computer.
- HomePage templates provide a quick and easy way to customize the kiosk screens that are presented to users and lock down access to only the content you wish to be available.
This powerful software delivers an arsenal of tools that elevate the value of your investment and provide the ability to perform more tasks. All the features of the Zamok suite are free to use for the first year on every kiosk model we ship.
Add to all of this our industry-leading 3 Year Warranty, and it’s plain to see why the Advanced Kiosk Advantage continues to be an unmatched edge for those in search of high quality self-service solutions.
About his company’s newest product, Advanced Kiosks president and CEO Howard Horn was quick to highlight the foreword thinking design quality of the Island and its kiosk printing abilities.
“You can find self service solutions for kiosk printing all over, but what we found to be lacking were designs that effectively joined form and function. Go to a bank, airport, or university and you’re almost certain to find kiosks that are hidden away in a dark corner for fear that they may be an eyesore. With the luxuriously designed Island Kiosk, we strived to shatter that paradigm. It’s not just an equipment piece, it’s conversation piece.”
For over 15 years, Advanced Kiosks has been an innovator and leader in the development of self-service hardware and software. All products are made in the company’s Franklin, New Hampshire factory space and come complete full suite of computer kiosk management software, and a robust technical support program.
