System Location (Install): Devices / Device Install
The ALP SaaS Kiosk Application is a standalone Windows program that fully integrates the host PC with the ALP SaaS database. Once installed and configured, the application offers a wide array of options that facilitates interaction between loyalty members and the loyalty program.
Typically, the application is installed on a Windows PC that is equipped with an Internet connection, touch-screen display, and a card swipe interface. To interact with the program, a member will swipe their card, and have the ability to view marketing material, receive points for swiping, check their point balance, answer surveys, receive offers, and more. In addition, when the kiosk is not being actively used by a member, it has the ability to display attraction media.
Furthermore, all kiosk configuration can be controlled remotely from within the ALP SaaS application and each kiosk can have its own device profile, allowing the ability to specifically configure each kiosk independent of the others.
