The growing investment of Social Services in technological solutions

Interactive solutions are, more and more, a strong investment of the Social Services of schools and universities. In addition to providing incomparable access to information and announcements, they are also a way for institutions to communicate with the student body, teachers, alumni and visitors.

The digital equipment in the Social Services is, thus, beginning to play a fundamental and indispensable role. The functions that can be performed in a multimedia kiosk by employees, students, teachers and parents are already part of the daily life of these institutions.

Since a large part of the population is already familiar with new technologies and interactivity, it is almost natural and instinctive to interact with PARTTEAM & OEMKIOSKS interactive solutions.

A new way of educating

Digital signage and interactive kiosks also create a relaxed environment in educational institutions, providing access to useful information, news, among other communications. But there are other features associated with digital kiosks, such as security notifications.

Digital signage and interactive kiosks are, thus, an essential complement to the visual communication environment of any educational institution. They are tools that attract attention and provide, digitally, a lot of important information. Multimedia kiosks can also integrate a touch screen which, in turn, further enhances the digital signage experience.
