LOUISVILLE, Colo., July 25 /PRNewswire/ -- Kiosk Information Systems (KIS) has been selected as the kiosk system provider for the U.S. Postal Service's "Personnel Central Kiosk (PCK)" initiative, which will offer human resources information to postal workers without computer access in their work environments. The contract calls for KIS to initially produce and support 310 standard KT-125 kiosks for placement in postal distribution centers nationwide, with the option for ordering an additional 300 kiosks thereby bringing the maximum potential value of the Postal contract to approximately $4.1 million. The kiosk rollout begins this month and is just one component of the U.S. Postal Service's technology infrastructure within its transformation plan.

"Kiosks are the solution to extending company information and HR services to dispersed employees," according to KIS President Rick Malone. "The KT-125 features a privacy filter on the monitor that looks like a black screen to passers by, enabling postal workers to securely access personal information at their distribution center."

KIS partner Netkey Inc. is providing software support for the project, integrating the management system necessary to put the Postal Service's HR functions online with a secure and easy-to-understand user interface. Netkey's software makes it possible to manage and update the Personnel Central kiosks from a single desktop, and generate usage reports easily.

"Together, Netkey and KIS offer a comprehensive solution that makes it simple for HR professionals to quickly reach unconnected workers and realize the benefits of extended employee self-service," said Netkey CEO V. Miller Newton.
