BROOMFIELD, Colo. - Kiosk Information Systems (KIS) recently produced 25 kiosks to bridge the gap between office and shop floor employees at Bell Helicopter, a Texas-based helicopter manufacturer. The kiosks provide all 7,000 employees access to the company portal, MyBellHelicopter.com, which provides Bell news, company policies and procedures, internal employment opportunities, benefits and wellness information, training applications, online pay stubs and direct deposit updates, hazardous material information, government compliance standards, and more.

Prior to the deployment of kiosks, shop floor employees depended upon paper-based and word-of-mouth systems to remain abreast of company events, keep track of time spent on projects, and communicate with office staff.

"At Bell Helicopter, we are committed to constantly improving communication among employees at all levels," said P.D. Shabay, executive vice president of administration and chief human resources officer at Bell Helicopter. "By installing kiosks, we can extend company information and services to our entire staff."

For Bell Helicopter, self-service kiosks connect dispersed employees, making the kiosks a vital component of the organization's human resource program. "Today, it is common for an organization's office staff to be housed in a location separate from the manufacturing facilities," said KIS President, Rick Malone. "The KI-440 Industrial kiosk deployed by Bell Helicopter features a rugged construction that can withstand the harsh environment of the factory floor and a flexible design that enables the installation of a wide variety of devices. Kiosks are the solution to extending computer-based company services to shop floor employees."
