Desktop TouchScreen WPF Application, Development
Spice digital Limited, one of the most famous names in the Indian telecom industry, took up a new venture of developing desktop entertainment application for its customers, for the first time ever in India…a one-stop kiosk for all entertainment needs and requirements of a mobile user.
Spice Digital came to us for a comprehensive software solution to formulate their concept into a running system. We comprehended their requirements as an entertainment kiosk that they are planning to put at different locations in Indian cities. We suggested them a feasible solution and named it Spice Kiosk Application…a complete entertainment solution for users.
We provided them a desktop solution catering exactly to their requirement:
Spice Kiosk Application:
The users get various entertainment packs for their mobile phones, pen drives, and memory cards etc. They can download music, mobile games, ringtones, wallpapers, and themes in their mobile phones or in external devices (pen drives, and memory cards etc.). They can download audio version of films and jokes as well.
The application has a section, which showcases the home products of Spice like Spice mobile phones, notebooks, headphones, Bluetooth devices and a lot more. There are extensive descriptions of product prices, features, specifications and availability etc. This category can be browsed by users when and as necessary.
We use16 digit unique numeric code of scratch cards that has some face value for transactions in Kiosk application. The users can also recharge their scratch cards for further use.
Using WSDL (Web Services Description Language), we keep a track of all transactions and actions happening in the kiosk application and web server. This report is presented in Graphs and Dashboards for easy comprehension by a ASP.Net web application. This enables the administrator or manager to keep a track of the latest activities, revenue and profits coming from individual Kiosks.
The crisp and smart design of the user port, with animations, makes it even more fun for the user to operate the system. The touch screen feature makes the entire system look sophisticated.
We have designed a system, which immediately recognizes the external devices like pen drives, mobile phones and memory cards etc. and save the relevant files from Kiosk to external devices.
The update manager performs the following functions:
The application has a complete CMS, which helps to add, modify and remove contents and features. This also helps in managing the other data stored in the system.
While developing this application, we have kept also taken care of extensive security of the entire system. The kiosk security system deals with the following issues:
External Hard drive: No user will be able to use the system by plugging in external hard drives like keyboards, monitor, or mouse.
Secure files: The files are completely secure and no user can access it… nobody can delete or rename the files. Also, no one can add new functions and files to the system.
Operating system: The touch screen graphical interface and the kiosk system is independent in itself and leaves no chance for the user to know what operating system in running behind the interface.
Features: The features and their functions are completely secure and no one can use it without going through the required procedure for it. For instance, no one can play games, download songs or add themes without registering into the system.
