Q : What is Kiosk Management?

Simply put, kiosk management is the ability to remotely maintain and monitor your kiosks. With kiosk management tools like KioCloud, you can view usage statistics, update content, create reports, monitor kiosk health, and more – all without being on site with each deployed kiosk.
Q : What hardware and software is required to make KioCloud work?
A :
KioCloud can be run from any device with an internet connection and browser. Log in from anywhere to manage your kiosks.
Q : How does KioCloud work?
KioCloud is used with client-side kiosk software that locks down your deployed kiosks to a particular application, website, or browser, restricting users to only allowed/permitted activities and actions. With client side kiosk software (like KioWare Full or Kiosk Pro Enterprise), you can secure your kiosks and then manage those kiosks remotely with KioCloud.
