Kiosk Software – Cardiff Airport
Opening with a screen that allows the selection of either Welsh or English, the software then provides users with a choice of categories, these are Accommodation, Travel, Things to see & do, On Site and Food & Drink.
As part of a larger project at Cardiff Airport led by Golley Slater we were commissioned to develop both kiosks and the bespoke information kiosk software for them. This was in a bid to improve the new visitor experience for arrivals at Cardiff Airport, allowing them quick and easy access to travel and accommodation information.
Working closely with Golley Slater we developed the software to be as intuitive and inviting as possible, with an emphasis on DDA compliance. We achieved this with a large colourful display that allows the input of information and navigation from the bottom up, ensuring children and those in wheelchairs can access it.
Opening with a screen that allows the selection of either Welsh or English, the software then provides users with a choice of categories, these are Accommodation, Travel, Things to see & do, On Site and Food & Drink. These can be selected via tabs, and also have mirrored links to select running along the bottom of the screen to ensure they are within reach for all people.
Within these categories users can search for accommodation, travel options, places to eat and places of interest based upon location and the use of various filters. All of this information is updated dynamically and cached via a single source, guaranteeing up-to-date information and quick load speeds.
The ‘on site’ tab allows visitors to browse the Cardiff Airport website where they can access various information including that of flights and facilities.
The resulting software combines an attractive interface with ease of use, making it simple to use for visitors and providing them with a quick and easy way of getting their bearings in what is often a foreign land.
