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.

Transactions through Scratch Cards

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.

Kiosk Reporting

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.

Additional Features

Comprehensive Graphical Interface

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.

Download into External Drives

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.

Update Manager

The update manager performs the following functions:


  • Upgrade version of Kiosk Application automatically.
  • Update content (songs, ringtones, Movies, themes, wallpapers and the like)….at all Kiosks from web server.

Complete CMS (Content Management System)

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.

Security

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.
