LOUISVILLE, Colo., Nov. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Together with TeraNova Consulting Group and leading Nationwide CDMA Wireless Providers, Kiosk Information Systems (KIOSK) is providing a much simplified, bundled approach to wireless kiosk deployments.

"By partnering with TeraNova, a best-in-class hardware and communications expert for the self service sector, KIOSK enables their clients to offload 100% of the communications logistics and back-end support requirements. Removing the barriers of in-building network deployment provides significant competitive advantage in overall cost and speed to market," said Tom Weaver, VP of Sales and Marketing for KIOSK.

The fundamental benefit of deploying kiosks with integrated wireless capability is position flexibility. Kiosk placement is an essential element in customer adoption and solution ROI, but ideal pilot positioning can be somewhat elusive. Without the commitment and expense of hard-wiring equipment, clients can experiment to find the ideal "sweet spots" that provide maximum traffic and return.

Weaver added, "With wireless functionality becoming a common requirement in the communications roadmap of KIOSK's client base, we wanted to be proactive in bundling all the necessary services to significantly simplify the process. Ease of integration for our customers has always been a cornerstone of KIOSK's solution design philosophy, and is exemplified well in this wireless product / service bundle."

Natasha Royer Coons, Managing Director of TeraNova notes "kiosk clients are able to return to focusing on their core business when the complexities of telecommunications design, deployment, and management are outsourced to industry experts. By leveraging this turn-key solution approach with KIOSK and TeraNova, customers can efficiently bridge both wireless and wireline environments and rest assured that consistent uptime and connection reliability are solidly in place."
