WARRINGTON, England — Hand Held Products announced the launch of the Image Kiosk 8560 interactive mini-kiosk. The device allows a multitude of applications within the manufacturing, transportation and retail sectors, making it unique in the market. Users benefit from its self-service customer access, Windows CE integration, and real time communication while maintaining a low cost of ownership. The Image Kiosk 8560, powered by Adaptus Image Scanning Technology 5.0 allows manufacturers to control access to secure areas, locate key assets in their inventory or check part numbers. This increases security and improve productivity while reducing costs.
It also allows transporters and airport professionals to control the access to lounges, for example, and enables users to check the status of their frequent flyer program or receive targeted promotions. It can be used at the check-in counters or departure halls to read 2D barcodes on boarding passes, or to display information and maps.
Retailers also enable shoppers to check prices, product information, store maps and loyalty program status on their own. They can display targeted promotional messages to influence the customer at the point of decision and increase basket value.
"Today's manufacturers, transporters and retailers are looking for ways to become more efficient and better serve their customer base," said Eric de Greef, business manager for mobility systems at Hand Held Products EMEA. "The Image Kiosk 8560 is the solution for users who value an ergonomic and durable solution, all at a low price point."
