1. KIOSK PROJECT PLANNING - The devil really IS in the details.

Proper planning requires that the software application developer work with the client BEFORE any critical hardware decisions are made. One project we worked on illustrated this point. The client wanted a bar code reader on the kiosk and ordered them with the cabinets directly from the manufacturer - KSI never had a chance to test the mounted device in our labs on an actual enclosure.

The result? The factory installed the readers too deep inside the kiosk openings, and the sensors would not work properly. It took quite a while to figure out that it wasn't a software bug causing the problem, but that discovery cost the client valuable time against an advertised Grand Opening campaign they had arbitrarily set weeks in advance.

2. INTERNET ADVERTISING FOR KIOSKS - A new technology to generate additional revenue.

Is your kiosk project self-supporting? Some are, but many single-use kiosks need an additional revenue source to cover development and deployment costs.

Now web-based kiosks can take advantage of a hot new Internet technology developed by AdCast. Kiosk Software's proprietary operating system, Kiosk Operating Suite (K/OS), supports the AdCast non-scrollable e-billboard ads (as seen on our website at http://www.kioskco.com ) and currently running on many high-volume web sites nationally.

5. BURGERS, FRIES...AND KIOSKS? - McDonald's and Arby's put more "self" into self-service.

According to a recent News Journal Online article, several major fast-food franchises are taking another look at kiosks inside stores to speed customer service and increase sales.

"McDonald's is testing a machine that lets customers punch in their orders, pay with cash and wait at a table for their burgers and fries. Meanwhile, an Arby's franchisee in Golden, Colo., is trying out its own patented kiosks at five of its 62 restaurants.
