SMART CITY KIOSK
Berne, Indiana reached out to GoToKiosk to for a solution that would educate residents and visitors, promote local businesses, and encourage activity within their community. GoToKiosk's line of TowneScope™ kiosks was a perfect fit for their vision. TowneScope is a powerful package of kiosks and software designed to "Market Your Towne"! We offer indoor and outdoor TowneScope kiosk applications. visit our TowneScope Product website HERE to learn more!
Survival in a smaller community of 4,000 residents does have its complexity. Our focal point is located at the main intersection of highways 27 and 218 in the Swiss City of Berne, In. Our Muensterberg Plaza and 159 ft. Clock Tower is replica of the famous Clock Tower in Bern, Switzerland. Naturally, the best place to locate our GoToKiosk was on that site!
We can’t financially have our Chamber and Visitor Center open 24 / 7, or frankly as many hours as we would wish. The kiosk is that tool and has come to our services! The important information supplied on screen can direct our people and visitors to their questions and directions on site, or in the convenience of their phone or computer in the privacy of their home. In addition, there is a weather friendly built in box we use for Berne brochures. We like to think of this venture as first a website and secondly a well placed kiosk!
We continue to explore creative ways to promote the kiosk. Two recent projects involved our Halloween “Treats at the Tower”. The guests sent their kiosk photo shop pictures online and entered in a new era masquerade contest. It was a huge success!!
We currently are using the kiosk for a “Shop Local” Christmas contest. Shoppers download the kiosk coupon and purchase Christmas gifts and have the establishments sign their cards for a weekly drawing.!
Thank you GoToKiosk for helping keep our community alive and vibrant! "
