i-Kiosk for Libraries

iKiosk

The iCAM i-Kiosk is a combined hardware and software solution designed for use alongside iCAM's PC booking and print control solutions.

The i-Kiosk is based around a touch screen interface which offers an innovative way of allowing borrowers to browse PC availability in the library or at nearby sites and select a computer to book, whilst also allowing them to view and pay for their printed documents. However, as the i-Kiosk is designed to run alongside existing iCAM modules, staff continue to remain in control.

The i-Kiosk's in-built barcode reader scans the borrower's library card to grant access. Once the user has been validated against your Library Management System they have access to the modules you have chosen to install.

The i-Kiosk application interface can be branded and customised to promote customer services and reflect existing branding guidelines.

All of our i-Kiosks come with a touch screen and in a range of colours The payment kiosk also includes a barcode reader, receipt printer, coin accepter with a reject facility and four coin denomination change hoppers.
