A Merseyside manufacturer of digital kiosks, video walls and digital signage has developed a kiosk that screens the temperatures of people arriving at business premises.
Evoke Creative, based in Wirral, says the kids will allow companies to screen staff and visitors for signs of coronavirus before they enter their premises. The process is contactless and the unit also includes a hand sanitiser.
The new product could prove invaluable for companies looking to open up following the COVID-19 lockdown and wanting to offer maximum protection to staff, customers and other visitors to their premises.
Evoke Creative, which secured new investment from BGF in 2018, supplies interactive digital products, including self-service kiosks, video walls, digital signage and payment terminals to organisations such as JD Sports, McDonald’s and Google.
The business has also launched a contactless user experience which can be integrated into existing touchscreen applications. The Evoke CORE|Contactless Interface has far-reaching application, particularly in the retail, hospitality and leisure sectors.
Dean Ward, chief technology officer at Evoke Creative and founder along with Neil Clark, said: “Brands need to connect and communicate with employees and customers more than ever, but they need to find new ways of doing this. Safety is paramount and businesses are looking to protect and reassure audiences, so they feel safe as an employee or customer.
“Technology has a huge role to play in this. Our systems allow organisations to connect and engage with their customers in dynamic and rewarding ways, helping to maximise transaction conversion rates, improve customer journeys and reduce costs. Businesses still need to do all of these things.
“In the past few months we’ve innovated at pace to come up with a range of solutions which will allow brands to continue to engage customers safely as we emerge from lockdown.”
