Case Study – Lilitab Kiosks Help Promote Environmental Sustainability

Case Study – Lilitab Kiosks Help Promote Environmental Sustainability

lilitab kioskThe Creative Animal Foundation is embarking on a 50 city tour to promote the protection of nature in a 200 sq ft. custom built tiny house, donated by 84 Lumber. Environmental experts Stephanie Arne (host of Mutual of Omaha’s “Wild Kingdom) and Tim Davison are visiting schools, universities, businesses, and festivals to educate the public. Their biggest obstacle was trying to figure out how to collect survey data from visitors. A recommendation from National Geographic led them to lilitab.

lilitab kiosklilitab worked with the couple in finding the best tablet kiosk solution, which turned out being the lilitab Wall Pro. Once the kiosks were in their place on the side of the house, Arne and Davison conducted pilot tests with more than a 100 people to tweak the software and make sure the survey process was smooth and easy. The kiosks are using survey software from San Francisco-based software company QuestionPro. Learn more at CreativeAnimal.org.

Executing a Successful Tablet Deployment Step 2 Whitepaper

Determining Your Budget

Once you’ve defined the goals for your kiosk project, the second step is determining your budget. A kiosk deployment project is just like all major projects—there’s lots of areas to consider and even then, expenses can show up when least expected. Let’s talk about how you can avoid any budget surprises.  Excerpts below. Read the full whitepaper.

HARDWARE

The type of hardware you’ll need largely depends on your goals. Having a clearly defined vision of what you want to accomplish with your kiosk deployment will help to ensure you make the right hardware choices.

LEASING

A great way to cover up front hardware costs is a leasing option with a negotiable monthly fee. The upside is that you can preserve your cash and credit line while your deployment gets up and running. In addition, lease payments may be deductible as an operating expense on tax returns as opposed to the depreciation and interest deductions that occur with financed equipment.

APP DEVELOPMENT

Of course, a successful deployment needs a custom, interactive app for quality customer service. Hiring a competent app developer with direct experience in your field is highly recommended. Once you have an app candidate, conduct at least one field test with extensive testing to ensure everything works as planned. One glitch could bring down an entire deployment!

DEPLOYMENT COSTS

Deployment and infrastructure need to be carefully considered at the pilot phase. Do you need to conduct on-site surveys at each location to ensure power outlet are accessible along with good wi-fi access? If you’re deploying more than one tablet, you should consider your network infrastructure requirements.

MAINTENANCE AND SERVICE COSTS

Let’s fast-forward past your successful deployment and talk about maintaining your tablet kiosks. To ensure continuous operation, you’ll need a way to monitor the kiosks plus be notified of any problems. There are several remote monitoring solutions on the market, some allow for remote troubleshooting, so if you’re is lucky, many problems can be fixed from your office.
