For example, a church may come in looking for a kiosk to help with Sunday school child check-in. Without a kiosk, most are keeping track of children and their guardians with paper and pen.  Our kiosks offer a secure tamper-proof system and a digital activity log. Additionally, a computer kiosk can print stickers and receipts and offer real time updates to double check attendance.

Regardless of business size, many organizations face the problem of having a limited human resources staff who must process HR needs and paperwork for many other employees. With a kiosk, a short staffed HR team streamlines red tape tasks that take up precious time.

At an HR kiosk station, employees can print pay stubs or forms. Add a scanner for ID verification (birth certificates, driver’s license, Social Security cards etc.) and securely transmit scanned items. In addition, these stations can provide company information, policies, training modules, and institutional forms all at the touch of a button.
