How Can Custom Touch Screens Help Increase Your Following?

When you’re a business owner, you’ll do just about anything in your power to help increase your following. Whether it’s having weekly sales or having rewards for your most loyal customers, the list goes on and on. However, one surefire way to help increase your following is to have touch screen technology implemented — here’s why:

Makes Transactions Easier

In today’s world, many customers dread waiting in long lines to make their purchases. Even if your business has an express lane, those can still be rather lengthy. That being said, installing a custom touch screen device can give customers the option of self-checkout lanes and make transactions easier (and faster), too.

Increases Appeal

A custom touch screen device is a detail that is desired by many businesses across the board, only because it helps increase their visual appeal. If audiences were given the option to visit a business that uses print posters versus one that uses custom touch screen displays, the latter option would be the one that appeals the most (and rightfully so!).

Encourages Engagement

Nowadays, an audience wants to be engaged with whatever is being presented to them. And with the assistance of a touch screen display, it makes it possible to do that with ease. Whether the touch screen is displaying an interactive map or it’s prompting the audience about a sale, any form of “audience participation” is vital and will make them feel valued — something that will keep them coming back and spreading the word about your business!

Why Do Touch Screens Thrive in Museums?

When you hear the term “museum,” what comes to mind first? For some, that might mean a plethora of exhibits, while to others, that could bring famous works of art to mind — but what about touch screen technology? Sure, that’s not a common thought to have, but here’s why it should be — or, better yet, why touch screens truly thrive in museum settings:

Keeps Visitors Engaged 

Sometimes, a small plaque can lose the interest of a reader quickly — and with minimal effort, too. Sure, it’s one “medium” to help inform visitors about various artifacts, but it’s not the most powerful way to keep them engaged. Solution? Have a custom touch screen display installed. Not only will this help bring the exhibit to life, but it can also prompt visitors to press the screen in order for them to get to the next part of the exhibit’s story.

Makes Learning Entertaining

If you’re the owner of a museum that is a prime destination for school field trips, then you and your marketing team will always be looking for new ways to make your exhibits more entertaining. That being said, touch screen exhibits will help make that possible. Whether the touch screens are placed at each exhibit, or they’re used to prompt trivia games when your visitors reach the end of the museum, the possibilities to heighten the fun are endless with touch screen technology!

Can Easily Be Changed

Let’s face it: not every museum stays the same over time. And if you have printed plaques adorning the walls, it will cost a small fortune having the old ones removed and new ones created to replace them. However, with a touch screen solution, the displays are interchangeable — meaning that you can change the display for something new in minutes! This is not only a cost-effective solution, but it’s also a great way to reduce your carbon footprint, too (think about the paper and plastic you’ll be saving).

Where Interactive Kiosks Work Best

Nowadays, having an interactive kiosk installed at your business is the perfect finishing touch. However, if you are a business owner and aren’t too sure where you should install one of these units, here are a few ideas to consider.

Shopping Mall

When you go to an overwhelming shopping mall, where do you usually look to see where you’re going? Typically, shoppers will either ask someone who works there or will try to locate a printed map. However, a custom interactive kiosk will help solve the problem at hand. The reason why this makes for a much better solution than a printed map is that the interactive map can be updated at any time — and it won’t cost a small fortune to be reprinted.

Hotel Lobby

Whether you work in hospitality or did at one point, you’ll know that some seasons are much busier than others — and sometimes, there are not enough hands on deck. Case and point, there’s a way to help provide some extra assistance for a fraction of the cost: having a custom interactive kiosk installed. Instead of having patrons wait on line to check-in/check-out or ask a question, they can consult with the interactive kiosk, which can act as a second pair of hands. 

Museum

If you’ve been to a museum, then you’ll know that sometimes it can be a tad overwhelming to see what’s on each floor or where to scout out your favorite exhibit. Granted, there are usually paper maps — but those can only do so much. Solution? Having an interactive kiosk installed on the premise. This will help patrons be able to find what they’re looking for with the utmost ease. 

Another perk? Just like a shopping mall scenario mentioned earlier, an interactive kiosk will be a lot more cost-effective, rather than having materials re-printed for a typically astronomical cost.
