A web kiosk allows the public to browse the internet through interactive touch screen solutions which can be either free of charge, pay as you go, wirelessly connected, floor mounted or wall mounted.
As a society we have all seemingly become very dependent on the Internet to help us organise our lives, keep connected and to provide entertainment.
Depending on the requirement the fee can be per hour or per minute always payable in advance. The kiosk could be configured to give a warning when the user’s time is running low of more credit is needed. When or if the credit time finishes, the kiosk would simply log the use out ready for the next customer.
Web Kiosk solutions have proved useful for people who either don’t have access to the Internet at home, or if they don’t have access to the Internet whilst they are out or away, perhaps on holiday or a business trip.
Web kiosks could enable the public to access their emails, view online statistics, check online banking, make travel arrangements, check online social networking sites, lookup tourist information as well as many other online applications.
It is possible to ensure by design that web kiosks do not require staffing to take payments or to set the allocated time for each user. In a similar way web Kiosks could be an ideal solution for hotels by offering users Internet access with no additional customer service required from the hotel staff.
