Interactive applications made easy with Site Kiosk software

When considering a kiosk project, the software application is incredibly important. Ensuring a good combination of suitable kiosk and usable software will go a long way to making the kiosk solution usable and enjoyable for your target audience.
Nov. 9, 2010 - PRLog -- Sitekiosk software is a secure web browser solution which ensures that the information displayed on the kiosk via the web is safe from misuse and abuse by the public. Sitekiosk ensures that the kiosk only goes to the websites allowed and only allows searches as specified.

Kiosk Software – Kiosk software, in most cases, needs to be tailored to each kiosk solution. Whilst there are a number of “off the shelf” solutions available on the market today, it is vital that time is spent understanding what the kiosk is designed to do, what it is intended to offer the customer and how the kiosk will communicate with any back office software. Dicoll have worked with a number of specialist companies over the years all of which have differing skills and specialties in relation to kiosk software and kiosk software applications.

Secure Web Browser Software SiteKiosk software locks down and secures any public access Windows PC, kiosk, terminal and self-service station. The secure browser software restricts user access to the operating system, the desktop, programs and folders based on your settings. You can also limit Internet access to certain web sites or activate the content filter to block objectionable or illegal websites. The software comes with different browser skins, virtual keyboards for touch screens and payment functionality. SiteKiosk Features include:

User Access & System Security Management (PC lock-down) SiteKiosk safeguards Windows computers as soon as it boots up against any user manipulation and ensures a maintenance-free operation of your computers 24/7. Our software locks down the computer by creating a secured user account with limited user access rights. Users are prevented from accessing the operating system. You can restrict user access to certain drives, folders, programs and URLs. System-critical keyboard combinations are blocked and a software watchdog monitors your computers.

You can add and delete buttons, disable the URL address bar and the task bar and restrict internet access to certain internet addresses (URLs).

Integrated Billing Functionality & Internet Content Filter SiteKiosk allows you to charge customers for using your computers and for surfing the internet. The software supports different credit card gateways and payment devices such as credit card readers and cash acceptors.
