An iPad kiosk stand is an innovative, attractive and interesting way to provide information to consumers.
Convenient and secure, an iPad kiosk stand will help to improve sales by allowing customers access to the information they require when sales staff are otherwise engaged. Potential customers are often put off by the very appearance of a sales person; they immediately feel pressurized and head for the door before they have even had the chance to make their inquiries. This type of stand is perfect for this kind of customer, easy interaction will allow them to access the details they require, putting them in control and at ease, they will leave with a positive impression of your product and your company and may even be more likely to make a purchase – even more so if the device is also used as a point of sale (POS) tool. They are a valuable tool for use at exhibitions or trade shows, even just a couple of stands placed in prime position will assist in delivering pertinent information, possibly allowing savings on the employment of staff.
An iPad kiosk stand is a floor stand that holds an iPad, available as either a single floor standing unit or as a floor stand with a removable iPad mount, it can be sited inside a kiosk/enclosure or placed by itself in a prominent position. The device is held securely with all buttons and jack sockets concealed, this means that non authorised users will be unable to interfere with settings, although you will be able to remove it easily for cleaning and maintenance when necessary. The kiosks are designed to allow WiFi, 3G and Bluetooth signals if required.
