Customer Access Terminal (CAT)

Yesterday was a big day for Rich and myself we successfully deployed our CAT software to our first customer in conjunction with our video conferencing partner First Connections.  The software allows members of the public to interact with their local council almost as if they are with them in person.  Allowing members of the public to access services from rural locations.

The kiosk utilises two screens, one being a touch screen.  The touch screen is used to visit specific council web sites, or to start a video call with a member from one of the council help desk team.  Once in a video call the council representative can help complete specific council forms including taking passport style photos with the built in HD camera and customers signatures using a high resolution LCD signature pad.

All built using .NET 4 and Windows Embedded.
