Main points for system configuration

Kiosk system

The Web server on the Internet is optional. But when it is available, it can provide the company and/or the shop information. Additionally it eases support and maintenance work especially for a company with multiple shops with centralized management using Web Contents Update and so on.

The Kiosk application is a Web-based application, which means the application runs on a Web server on the Internet or at the shop locally. As the TM-DT has a built-in Web server, the application can run on a TM-DT, too.

The Kiosk application can run on a tablet PC or the TM-DT using a browser in which case the information is displayed at the LCD panel.

A guest who visits the shop reads the message on the display, then selects a service on the screen.

At that time it is possible to read customer information, e.g. customer ID, using peripheral device(s), which are connected to the TM-DT, and/or to print out the customer slip at the TM-DT using Epson ePOS SDK without any printer drivers.

When the Kiosk application needs to be updated, a system administrator will place the new data/contents in a certain folder on the Web server on the Internet. Using the Web Contents Update function of the TM-DT, the files in the certain folder of the Web server are checked on schedule, then downloaded and to re-write the data within the TM-DT when new data is found. This easies support and maintenance work at a shop.
