Factura Launches New Line of Kiosk Enclosures

Alliance Enclosures are Modular, Durable, Flexible and Easy to Service

ROCHESTER, N.Y.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug. 2, 1999--The Factura Kiosks division of MicroTouch Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ:MTSI - news) today introduced Alliance(TM) enclosures, the next generation of ready-to-ship kiosk enclosures for commercial, government, point-of-sale and point-of-information applications.

The Alliance ready-to-ship product line includes four unique enclosures that are modular, flexible, durable and easy to maintain. The line has been designed to help kiosk integrators get projects completed faster, without sacrificing quality, functionality, or aesthetics. The new Alliance series includes: Model 1000, a new stand-alone version; Model 1200, a slim-profile model; Model 1600, a countertop model; and Model 1400, a new wall-mount unit. Models 1000, 1200, and 1600 are available now; the Model 1400 will be available in the third quarter.

  • Modular - Alliance enclosures are designed to accommodate a standard set of hardware components that can be supplied and integrated by Factura. Customers can select the monitor, printer, CPU, and card reader that best fit their application. All enclosures are equipped with a ventilation system, surge-protected power strip, door locks, and built-in speaker grills.
  • Durable - Alliance enclosures are constructed of plastic, steel and melamine. The rugged design supports hardware components in any environment and provides additional security in high-traffic, public-access areas.
  • Flexible -The modular design of Alliance enclosures makes it easy to upgrade peripherals if applications or business objectives change. The look of the kiosk will not change as a result of replacing components inside the enclosure.
  • Easy to Maintain - Alliance enclosures have pull-out shelving, providing front access to all hardware components for upgrades, cable access, maintenance, and repairs.

``The Alliance line is an excellent choice when you need a unique, eye-catching design and you are on an aggressive time-to-market schedule,'' said Greg Swistak, Factura president. ``The Alliance line was developed in response to the increasing demand from the industry for a quality enclosure that is simple to upgrade and service, and durable enough to withstand years of public use.''
