EAU CLAIRE, Wis. – Sept. 21, 2004 – StrandVision, LLC today introduced Online-Kiosks.net (www.online-kiosks.net) an Internet-based messaging system that allows companies to deliver informational and business marketing messages to customers and employees over virtually any computer or television display. It reaches customers when they are most likely to buy – in a waiting room or lobby – and presents opportunities for businesses to cross-sell customers through custom marketing messages and sponsored advertising from vendors.
Video messaging, also referred to as digital signage, narrowcasting, datacasting, digital in-store merchandising, retail television, electronic messaging, captive audience networks, digital messaging, electronic billboards or other terms, is normally installed on premises and requires investments in time and equipment. Online-Kiosks.net's hosted approach requires only an Internet connection since subscribers create and maintain their individualized sites on Online-Kiosks.net remote servers.
Commented Vicki Hoehn, executive vice president of Royal Credit Union, "We've been running Online-Kiosks.net displays in our lobby and at our drive-ups for months. It's easy to access and use, affordable, and flexible. I haven't seen anything like this out in the marketplace and, most importantly, our members are getting valuable information about our products, services and community contributions."
Online-Kiosks.net supports a number of businesses and applications:
