HIGHER EDUCATION KIOSKS
College and university classrooms and libraries are home to some of the latest and most advanced technology, but many schools are just beginning to take the first steps toward fully integrating technology throughout campus. Digital kiosks and signage are a great place to start, as they incorporate the technology that students, professors, and visitors already use in other aspects of their everyday life to simplify their on-campus experience.
Meridian’s higher education kiosks have the capabilities to help students and campus visitors navigate the campus and surrounding areas, check-in for a tour or appointment, pay tuition, and find information. Digital kiosks are also able to advertise for school-sponsored clubs and organizations, upcoming events, or local restaurants and businesses.
Meridian’s higher education kiosks increase efficiency by streamlining the check-in, tuition payment, and student ID acquisition processes.
