LGC provides kiosk solution for Town Pages

LGC Limited, specialists in the design and
                    manufacture of interactive kiosks, is to supply Town
                    Pages, the business and community new media
                    information provider, with kiosks for Town Pages'
                    touch screen information point service.

                    Town Pages aims to provide the ultimate local
                    information service and make it easily accessible to
                    the community and the world at large. This is
                    achieved through new media such as the Internet,
                    Internet-TV and CD-ROMs, as well as the touch screen
                    kiosks. Andrew Lyndon-Skeggs, Managing Director,
                    said: "The Town Pages kiosks are set to become an
                    inherent part of community life. Having researched
                    the market thoroughly, we came to the view that LGC
                    offers the widest range of kiosks suited to our
                    requirements, while remaining competitive in price."

                    The Town Pages touch screen kiosks, which offer a
                    regionalised interactive information service,
                    including travel, education, local business and
                    property as well as tourist and community
                    information, are strategically placed in key public
                    locations such as Tesco's and Sainsbury's
                    supermarkets, railway stations, hotels, hospitals and
                    colleges. In environments such as these, LGC's kiosks
                    are ideal because they present the information
                    clearly and are accessible to a range of physical
                    heights and abilities. LGC has over a decade of
                    experience in designing kiosks for
                    point-of-information applications and James
                    Wilkinson, Head of Technology at Town Pages, said "of
                    the kiosks proposed by the four suppliers short
                    listed, the LGC kiosks stood out for their sleek
                    appearance and competitive price."

                    The touch screen kiosks were launched in Winchester
                    on May 16th and several more launches, including
                    London, are planned before the year 2000.

                    In more than a decade of experience with major
                    projects LGC Associates have established a position
                    at the forefront of kiosk design and development in
