Touch screens are being used far more often these days to help retailers and companies engage more effectively with their customers. These innovative devices work by having a segmented interactive panel in front of the screen which is able to detect a customer’s hand touching the display. This rapid interaction enables customers to immediately receive additional details about the products or services that are on offer.
In the past, customers who wanted to learn more about a product or service would have needed to have searched around for a sales person or rep to furnish them with the information they required. With touch screen advertising monitors, customers can immediately learn everything they need to know about a product or service whilst sales assistants and reps can concentrate on helping customers with their purchasing decisions or dealing with service issues.
Although touch screen advertising screens were initially manufactured for indoor use only, there are now variants available that can operate outside. These touch screen monitors are housed in enclosure units that are manufactured from heavy gauge steel sheets and welded to provide a water proof and vandal proof solution. Indeed, these units are able to fully accommodate both the screen and a media player for safe digital outdoor advertising use. The fact that they are so well protected from the elements and can effectively repel thieves and vandals means that they can be used to great effect outside busy environments like shopping centres and transport hubs.
