SlabbKiosks is a one-stop shop for in-house hardware and software. We are here to provide answers throughout your entire kiosk project, and afterward if you require. We provide highly customized kiosk solutions through continuous collaboration with our clients that takes them through a comprehensive process from Planning to Design to Prototype to Production. The end result is a total self-service solution, complete with hardware, software and services.
PLANNING: We sit with our clients to get an idea of their business needs, the current challenges they are experiencing that they believe a self-service solution would eliminate, and finally what they envision the ‘look and feel’ and functionality of the solution to be. A complete review is undertaken to ensure that all elements of the process to be automated are included.
DESIGN: Initial concept sketches based on discussions in the planning stage are created and include the components needed to ensure proper functionality. The external appearance of the kiosk is created around its functional requirements and reflects the vision and brand of the client. This design process is extensive and requires many exchanges between us and the client to ensure we get the optimum design to suit their needs. Alongside the development of the hardware design, we also work to develop the software needed for the kiosk. In some cases, clients may choose an ‘off-the-shelf’ solution or may already have a software application that can be incorporated into the kiosk design.
Clients are provided with both an internal and external, fully-branded rendering for approval prior to a prototype being created.
PROTOTYPE: Once our clients are happy with the design, we create a prototype that allows them to see a physical, fully functional replica of the proposed kiosk model that they envisioned and helped design. At this stage the functionality of the kiosk is put through vigorous testing, often in the ‘field’, where consumers can use the kiosk as intended.
The prototype allows us to make any necessary changes needed to the hardware and software of the unit before it goes into final production.
PRODUCTION: Production only begins when the client signs off on the prototype and any design changes. We have a unique advantage because we utilize a production process that allows mass customization of kiosks, up to 250 units per week, with a four to six-week delivery time. Our products are designed to meet specific certifications, if your project requires it. The following certifications can potentially be attained for any custom project we develop:
- Underwriters Laboratories, Inc.- UL Certification
- Canadian Underwriters Laboratories, Inc.- CUL Certification
- European Conformity Certification – CE Certification
- Federal Communications Commission – FCC Certification
- TUV Rheinland of North America, Inc. – TUV Certification
Certification requirements may add to a project’s lead-time, so be sure to tell us about all of your project’s requirements when you contact us.
We deliver fully operational units at the client’s location of choice with a ‘look and feel’ unique to their project while adhering to commercial and regulatory design requirements. We take pride in the work we do and stand by the quality of our products, offering complete on-site installation and maintenance of all our kiosk units.
