All in one vs Independent
IWith our Twixl Enterprise Kiosk Cloud solution, the focus is on convenience, and with the Twixl Enterprise Kiosk Server the focus is independence. Twixl Enterprise Kiosk Cloud is an all-in-one solution, with almost zero configuration, and with the restricted access App Store app ready for download. Our Server solution allows in-house publishing without any extra costs, as you are integrating this within your own hosting infrastructure.
Based on the latest statistical data, we can safely say that Apple’s iPad has a more than 80% market share for tablets in the enterprise and this share seems to be even increasing. That is why our main focus has been to make this solution available for the iPad first. Nevertheless we are closely following the evolution of the market, so alternate platforms such as Android and Windows 8 versions may be added as an option later on.
Image- or HTML5-based
Right now, an image-based application with native controls offers the best and most fluid experience for reading interactive publications on a tablet.
Although HTML-based solutions may in theory generate smaller file sizes for your apps, current HTML5-based implementations appear to still be unable to deliver the same kind of responsiveness.
In addition, whereas a designer has grown accustomed to WYSIWIG in print, and can get the same results for image-based publications, that is not yet the case with HTML5 implementations. Also, image-based solutions can easily integrate any type of font without any licensing restrictions, which is not the case in HTML environments.
Best of both worlds
Today it is still expensive to develop a completely custom made app. Most of the time the number of downloads or even potential customers does not justify the development cost. From an enterprise point of view only a limited extra cost is acceptable to create interactive dynamic publications instead of static printed documents.
Because our solution starts from existing documents and layouts in InDesign, it lowers the development cost and if required additional features can still be added through the integration of HTML5 based content. With our solution you can easily enrich your publications and you can develop as much as your budget allows you to. Bottom line: it is an efficient and cost effective tool.
Automatic update notification
All the publications are updatable, but how do users know new publications are available? On the one hand, the back end administrator of will be able to send a notification to the users, and on the other hand users will get a notification in the Kiosk if an update to a publication is available for download.
The tablet: a specific medium
In our view the tablet is a specific medium which is close to the design experience of print and close to the digital and information accuracy experience of digital.
Creating publications for this medium requires specific needs. Design is important, content is important, you have to create an experience, choices, interactivity, animations, video, sound are expected! Be aware of the expectations of your audience and deliver.
Our solution enables you to fill in these needs and is based on our philosophy of ease of use, simplicity and intuition. The most common feedback we get in our workshops is: “Is it that easy?” It actually is, as it is based on our three-step model ‘Design, Build and Publish' - the fastest and easiest way to an enticing interactive reader’s experience.
