Together with long term partner and kiosk specialists Evoke Creative, TDS provides 2 kiosk solutions for simple and efficient user experiences combined with innovative design:
- Free-standing kiosk – a self-supporting unit that allows visitors, contractors and guests to check-in, capture photos, sign NDA’s and print visitor badges without requiring receptionist assistance. With QR code scanning functionality, the robust kiosk facilitates high volumes of rapid check-in processing.
- Counter-mounted kiosk – delivers easy-to-use self-service visitor processing and management. With resilient and intuitive software, this touchscreen-enabled device provides visitors and guests with a solution that is optimised for high levels of visitor traffic processing.
For the free-standing and counter-mounted kiosks, TDS turned to Star and integrated the specialist packaged printer TSP743II HI X with CloudPRNT™. With a built-in HI X interface, the printer is cloud-ready and with its unique multifunctional capability offers a versatile printing solution.
Widely used in a range of kiosk applications the TSP743II HI X combines speed, reliability and ease of use to produce high-resolution graphics and barcodes for tickets, receipts and labels. Operating at 250mm/sec, the printer can be vertically mounted and can accommodate a 100mm diameter paper roll with 60% more paper than on a standard 80mm diameter roll, labelling capability and heavier ticket stock for 58 and 80mm wide media. Furthermore, the printer features a black mark sensor for fixed-length tickets and labels. In addition to benefitting from Star CloudPRNT technology, it provides the ideal solution for use with Android and Windows tablets.
With the recent Covid-19 pandemic, visitor management has become a necessity more now than ever. Every workplace that holds the responsibility of keeping their workforce safe and secure require a solution to effectively monitor who is coming in and out of a facility; when, where and why. With this in mind, it is essential that any organisation utilising a digital visitor management solution in such a pivotal time for workplaces, that the solution is accurate, reliable and consistent.
