USAGE OF GOLDEN SCREENS NEW YORK CITYACCESS
PUBLIC ACCESS TERMINALS SURPASS 600,000 USERS DURING PILOT
November 30, 1998 - New York, NY. During the two year pilot phase of New York City's CityAccess project, over 600,000 users have used terminals created and managed by Golden Screens Interactive Technologies, Inc. (GSIT). While having deployed roughly 25% of the total locations in the pilot, GSA terminals have accounted for almost 43% of the total usage indicating the quality and ease-of-use of our GUI design. Over the past 24 months, the terminals deployed and managed by GSIT have achieved over a 99.5% uptime.
The stations provide users with a directory of services, benefits, and programs offered by various City departments and agencies. A "Key to the City" application will offer listings and contact information for elected and appointed officials, and general information about the City including: bus and subway maps, tourist information, and special events. In addition to providing information and printed forms, the ability to perform transactions and make payments using credit/debit cards is planned for the near future. Ultimately, CityAccess may include several thousand Kiosk Stations not just in City offices, but in 24-hour accessible locations, both indoors and outdoors.
