The intuitive kiosk software FrontFace allows you to create professional interactive information and self-service kiosk terminals with ease via normal PC hardware. Present your guests and visitors with an exclusive self-service information terminal experience with update-to-date news and valuable information!
How FrontFace works:
The software is installed on a normal Windows PC (Windows 7, 8.1 or 10). You will get the best user experience if the PC has a touch-screen. After the application starts, the underlying operating system is automatically protected against abuse and unauthorized access. Instead of the normal Windows desktop, a visually attractive hierarchical touch menu is presented to the user which can be easily navigated. Accessible from the customizable buttons, you can provide custom functionality or content (e.g. a menu board of the restaurant, a Website, photos, etc.)..
The contents as well as the menu itself can be easily updated or enhanced from a remote PC (e.g. from your office) with the included Kiosk Assistant application. Alternatively you can use a USB flash drive to update the terminal with the latest content. Online updates via the Internet are supported as well, which makes things extremely easy when you operate terminals at different physical locations.

Print2Screen: It is so easy!
The critical success factor of your kiosk terminal is the content that you provide to your users. Thanks to the unique Print2Screen Feature of FrontFace it has never been easier to create high quality content! You can use ANY Windows application which supports printing to create content for your touch screen terminal. No matter whether you use Word, Excel, PowerPoint or any other application to design your content – simply import anything directly by printing it on the FrontFace Print2Screen virtual printer. This also applies for existing material like e.g. PDF flyers. With Print2Screen you save a lot of work and you can instantly deploy your content on your kiosk system!
All-in-One PCs with Touch-Screen!
All-in-One PCs with touch-screen are extremely well suited for use as kiosk terminals – in large or small hotels. They represent a very cost-effective hardware foundation that can be used with FrontFace. Simply install FrontFace on the PC; the software automatically takes care of protecting the underlying Windows operating system from unauthorized access or abuse.
