Some of Our Customers
What support or maintenance is required? Who fixes the Interactive Tourism kiosk if it breaks?
HootBoard kiosks are built to need very little support or maintenance. They come outfitted with an internal censor to detect if the kiosk has gone offline, been tipped, etc. so you will be alerted if there are any issues that need to be addressed. When an issue occurs, you will be responsible for addressing it first but as a HootBoard customer, we are here to support you. We provide remote support for the hardware and we also provide software support 24 hours a day, Monday thru Friday. For maintenance, there is minimal maintenance aside from cleaning the screen weekly.
Our kiosks come with a one-year warranty that covers any damage or issues that occur and your software subscription comes with built-in support for as long as you’re a customer of HootBoard. We value our relationship with our customers so, of course, will work with you on any issues that arise and our hardware partners also offer support on any issues that arise with the kiosks.
We do offer an extended warranty that you can purchase for an additional cost of $600 per year for up to an additional three years and we recommend that you consider contacting your insurance company about getting the kiosks added to any policy that you currently have to protect against unforeseen damage.
How durable are your indoor and outdoor tourism kiosks?
The HootBoard Outdoor Glide is built to withstand both the elements and high-traffic use that comes with being an outdoor kiosk. The kiosk is outfitted with an outer shell that is both waterproof and dust-proof and comes with a double-layer outer shell to protect the touchscreen itself from vandals. The Outdoor Glide is permanently installed through a poured concrete base and secured with screws/bolts and is a locked case to ensure safety and protection. There is an additional protective layer in the form of high-penetrating, 5-8mm tempered glass with an anti-wear texture meant for outdoor use. The Outdoor Glide is thoroughly tested against inclement weather (-14°F up to 122°F) and against high use but of course, we know that you can’t predict what might happen so we do recommend insurance.
Are the tourism kiosks weatherproof?
The HootBoard Outdoor Glide kiosk is thoroughly tested against inclement weather and can withstand temperatures ranging from -14°F up to 122°F. The kiosk comes with a protective layer of high-penetrating, 5-8mm tempered glass with an anti-wear texture meant for outdoor use and an outer shell that is both waterproof and dust-proof. Though we expect for the kiosk to withstand weather conditions that come along with extreme weather, we also recommend insuring your kiosks against extreme weather and acts of God just to be safe.
