See you in the kiosk

BT has announced the creation of a specialist multimedia kiosk team to develop and implement tailor-made interactive solutions for UK businesses. The new team will be headed by Allan Morgan, and aims to position BT at the forefront of the emerging multimedia kiosk market, which Datamonitor estimates to be worth approximately £66 million by 2001. Allan was a key member of the team which recently launched BT's Multiphone, the first nationwide network of multimedia terminals offering e-mail and Internet access as well as payphone calls. The new team will work closely with UK organisations to deliver multimedia kiosk solutions that meet individual requirements. The kiosks offer organisations a competitive advantage by which they can differentiate with options such as multi-language capabilities, Internet and e-mail, instant print facilities, 24-hour access and the option to link to loyalty cards.
