Customising the PC Booking Client



The BookingsPlus PC Bookings client for Windows provides automated session control to ensure user sessions end on time, every time. Patrons login to their sessions using their library barcode and/or pin code, and once authenticated, patrons can view your acceptable use policy, which they must agree to comply with, before they can begin their sessions.

With BookingsPlus delivered as a Cloud PC Booking solution for libraries, you can customise the styling and branding of the PC Bookings client centrally without having to install any files individually on the library Public PCs.

Tip: display your logo on the login screen

To apply your library's logo to the welcome screen simply upload your logo via our EvolvePlus Support portal or email our helpdesk and we'll apply this to your BookingsPlus instance for you.

Measuring the Effectiveness of Digital Signage - IoT People Counters

 

For retailers and businesses alike, being able to separate your business from the marketing noise that surrounds us is the key to self-promotion. Digital signage is a versatile and effective means of self-promotion, but do you really know how effective your digital signage is? Is your message getting through to your audience or is your target audience engaging in your content? Measuring the success of digital signage is a painstaking task that without video tracking software or a physical interaction indicator is labour intensive and time-consuming.

API for IoT People Counter Integration


A key feature of our EvolvePlus IoT People Counters solution is our IMMOTION software platform where data from our IoT traffic counters and devices are available from a unified dashboard & reporting platform. 

The platform enables organisations to analyse their people counter data using dashboards, reports and charts accessed via web browsers on desktops, tablets or smartphones. Users can filter by specific locations, positions, sensor and date/time periods ( hour, day, week, month, and year).

We also recognise the need for organisations to incorporate their people counter data into their Business Intelligence apps - so we make it easy for organisations to connect to the data platform using a range of APIs for your authorised BI apps to read the footfall data and incorporate in a combined dashboard. For example: Hourly People Count vs Sales, Hourly People Count vs Staff Rostering, etc.

Collecting Customer Feedback Just Got Easier


Do you hate receiving customer feedback survey emails or being asked to fill in customer surveys whilst in store? Well, you are not alone.  Not only does it become annoying for the consumer, it can also damage the consumer perception of the brand. It’s no secret that obtaining accurate consumer feedback is the greatest data asset a company can hope for. But how can you effectively do this  without making demands on consumer’s time and damaging the brands image? Well, at EvolvePlus, we have the answer.

Developed and manufactured in Europe, EvolvePlus has now taken stock of a new ‘Moodbox’ solution for businesses and organisations. Our new ‘Moodbox’ is an affordable, easy to install, battery powered device that will help collect valuable customer feedback. With customisable buttons, face plate and the choice to either mount the device on a free standing pole, wall or counter, the 'Moodbox' is adaptable to any environment.  In conjunction to collecting feedback, the ‘Moodbox’ also integrates with our wireless people counter solutions so that footfall traffic statistics and customer feedback can be compared and analysed using our centralised web dashboard.

The best thing about the ‘Moodbox’ is its ‘Anti-Spam’ functionality. The device can be programmed with a button delay which can stop customers from ‘button smashing’ false information and compromising the overall results.
