Is your web kiosk smart enough?

How smart is your web kiosk? Is it smart enough to give you a Report at the end of the day detailing the most popular content on your kiosk on a particular day, one that was accessed again and again or highlighting the content that needs your attention? Does it automatically block users from accessing websites with specific keywords and generate related reports for your analysis.

42Gears SureFox enables businesses to not only create a portable web-kiosk using Android-based smartphones and tablets, but also helps:

– get insightful information on how the audience behaves or interacts with their web kiosks
