From the smartphones in our pockets to the self-checkout machines in the grocery store, interactive touch panels are everywhere, and for good reason:
In corporate, education, customer service, and retail environments, touch-sensitive audio visual tech – which ranges from small portable touch tablets through massive kiosks and video panels – offers a number of impressive benefits.
Here are just a few of the ways touch panels maximize the value of your technology:
User-friendliness and accessibility
Touch screen panels enable a direct interaction with technology that’s hard to match.
There’s something inherently more natural about pointing and manipulating objects on a screen with our hands the same way we could touch physical objects.
Pointing and pushing with our hands is a natural, instinctive gesture that almost everyone does intuitively. In a technological environment, that familiarity translates into instant expertise without the need for advanced training.
Reduced training time on tech, and reduced errors from technological mistakes mean more time to spend on your business or organization’s priorities.
Interactive touch screens also tend to be much more accessible for those with physical disabilities who may find other interfaces – such as a mouse and keyboard – difficult to use.
When they are well-designed, touchscreens offer all the simplicity of a whiteboard or blackboard and chalk, but with the power and functionality of a computer.
Enhanced customer experiences and faster business processes
As an automated customer service technology, touch screen panels offer 24/7 interactive customer support that never goes on break or calls out sick. They offer information, directions, and assistance to customers on-demand.
The immediate interface of a touch screen also makes inputting commands measurably faster.
Faster input translates into more effective and efficient decisions, which has a direct impact on your organization’s outcomes and bottom line.
Versatile, widely compatible, and durable digital technology
Interactive touch panels are among the most versatile methods of sharing information.
Integrators such as VSSI can work with you to configure information in a way that suits your needs and fits in seamlessly with the hardware and digital platforms you already have in place.
From small mobile tablets through massive video walls, touch screens are compatible with a wide range of technology types, platforms, varied hardware.
They are also all-in-one solutions which save space by eliminating non-touch components, limiting cords and wires. Eliminating the extra parts also means that many interactive touch panels are less likely to break, simply because there are fewer hardware components to contend with. Many are portable, offering mobile communications technology.
Touch screens are adaptable for both sensitive tasks requiring fine-toothed control, and for outdoor and other heavy-duty public use.
In fact, with modern technology, touch screens actually last longer than many projectors, offering extended durability to grow with you.
Engaging and Interactive Technology
Flat touch screen panels are visually appealing and attention-grabbing high-tech elements.
Crystal-clear images and graphics are fun to look at and arresting.
In educational settings, touch screens tap into a medium already familiar to most young people. Instead of passively listening to a presentation, viewers can actively participate in the educational experience using a touchscreen.
In business settings, touch screens enable active annotation, review, collaboration, and project management in an engaging, tactile format. Instead of trying to stay awake during a 1-way presentation, touch panels make all participants into active members of the conversation.
Regardless of the information you need to communicate, touch screens make the experience more interactive, dynamic, and powerful.
