Metro Click Kiosk Touch Screen PC Systems – Brings the World to Your Client’s Fingertips
Computer access is one of the most essential requirements in today’s world. Virtually every work environment and place of leisure relies upon computer use. However, owning a PC is just not enough. Gone are the days when one’s study room is occupied by a large computer set up. Just as saving space is important, it is important that the computer hardware is handy, stylish and comfortable.
Modern day touch screen PCs serve a number of these purposes. One of the most prominent names pioneering in the production of the touch screen PC is the kiosk. Most of the kiosks are floor-standing, having a cabinet base which supports the touch screen. Gradually, modern kiosks are transitioning from their traditional industrial look to contemporary, stylish designs. The kiosks are durable and robust enough to handle a plethora of software within their memory space. Typically, a space of 230GB hard drive is available with a RAM of 4GB. Depending upon the application, the kiosk may include features like Intel Graphics Media Accelerator, Bluetooth, one Express card and one Firewire. In most cases, the kiosks use Intel Mobile processors which reduce the amount of heat generation without having to compromise on the performance.
As the name suggests, the touch screen feature helps the user move from one page or browser to another with the swipe of the user’s hand. This eases the process of navigation for simple inputs. For the kiosks which have keyboards and touch screens, the user can use the keyboard for longer input sessions, such as typing emails or entering medical data.
Apart from the floor-standing designs, several other kiosk touch screen PC variations include wall-mountable, desktop, glass models, and more. Each of the models is designed for a particular application. For instance, the floor-standing kiosks touch screen typically houses printers for point of sale applications. Stylish glass models are quite popular and ideal for upscale, public settings and institutions. The self-styled kiosks can have a classic style which blends beautifully in almost any surrounding.

Simple modeled desktop touch screen PCs are also available in kiosk form. The Kiosk desktop computer is studded with a plethora of upgraded features that attract attention. Along with regular email sending option, these kiosks can offer video and photo sharing features, emergency and customer service video calls, and customizable GUIs (Graphic User Interfaces). If a store owner would like to restrict access to certain sites, the owner can easily do so with minimal effort.
The price of kiosk PCs varies greatly depending upon the application. The typical kiosk PC is more expensive than the conventional PC with comparable electronics. The higher price point is due to the rugged, mechanical design of the kiosks. The ruggedness is necessary to withstand the rigors of public use. Moreover the durability of kiosks enables the owner to receive long running benefits with minimal maintenance and repair expenses.
MetroClicks’ innovative touch screen kiosk design will set your business apart from the competition
Touchscreen kiosks are often used with a number of input devices and other peripherals such as telephone handset and it is vital that all components of the system are designed for the environment it will be used in. Telephone handsets are available with ruggedised plastic casings and armoured cables. Keyboards are available in stainless steel, resistant to all including the worst rain, snow and ice.
Touchscreen kiosks all have LCD screens and a touchscreen covering and the designer must give some thought on how to protect the screen from vandalism whilst still providing a pleasant usege experience. In direct sunlight it may be difficult for the user to see the LCD so think about how the metalwork design may help to provide some shade to the screen. Alternatively take a look at high-brightness LCD screens or sunlight visible LCDs using transflective technology.
The main motherboard will have a temperature specification detailing the lowest and upper operating temperature which the motherboard has been designed for use. Operation of the motherboard below the lower temperature or above the higher operating temperature may stop the system from functioning correctly. Proper heating and cooling of the system is therefore required to ensure reliable operation year round. The system can be kept warm during the coldest winters by using a small heating element inside the kiosk. Cooling can be done using fans to create an airflow out of the enclosure. However – ideally cooling holes would allow heat to escape from the system but this is a compromise to stop ingress of water.
Touch screen kiosks can provide a range of tasks that would otherwise have to fall to human staff. For instance the can provide information, dispense tickets, receive payment and scan items and all of this means that you have less demand on your workers. This right away gives you the considerable benefit of not having to employ as many members of staff. You can hire a smaller number and this in turn means you will save a lot of money.
At the same time though this means that the staff you do have will be able to better focus on the tasks they have and will have their attention less divided. It means shorter queues for the customers who still need human interaction, and it means much quicker service for those who use the kiosks. In fact you might find that by having kiosks you get more customers and clients and leads than you otherwise would at all.
Important reasons to use a touch screen kiosk stand
The reason for this is that many people simply don’t like interacting with others and will find it to be both time consuming and perhaps even intimidating. If you aren’t looking your best, if you are very shy, or if you are worried about getting ‘stuck in conversation’ when you shop, then using a kiosk becomes a much more tempting prospect and allows you to bypass what for some people is a ‘barrier to purchasing’.
Of course computers have been around for a long time and there have been facilities in place for self service and information kiosks for the last few decades. The question is then, why is it only now that we are seeing these kiosks pop up everywhere?
The answer is that technology has become smaller, more efficient and much cheaper to manufacture. Specifically the technology that has become more convenient for use is the touch screen element and this is something that is crucial for useful and successful kiosks.
The fact of the matter is that many people are turned off by technology and find it confusing and intimidating. Being confronted with a large keyboard and small screen is enough to prevent many people from making a purchase. Touch screen however is large and easy to see, intuitive to use, and actually fun to engage with. This makes it something that everyone can benefit from.
