Ability to Ignore Old Revisions in Content Updating

Server

KioWare Server Controlled Command Schedule

From KioWare Server Console, the time interval that kiosks check for new server commands can be specified and set to as short as 1 minute intervals.

Server

To minimize bandwidth, the XML format used by KioWare to communicate with KioWare Server has been substantially reduced. This will be especially useful for cellular communications with fixed bandwidth limits and enterprise deployments.

Server

New Screen Capture Server Command

A new KioWare Server Command has been added that tells KioWare to take a screen snapshot and send the image to KioWare Server.

Server

Resume Download for Content Updating

During KioWare Server Content Updating, if a file's download is interrupted, then the download will resume from the point of interruption rather than needing to re-download the entire file again.

Server

v 4.5.4

3/2010

Ability to add custom Server Commands

Previously Server commands, which tell the kiosk to complete a task from a batch file, were set from a fixed menu list, which included shut down kiosk, reboot, and restart KioWare. Now you can create custom commands in addition to the fixed list. For example, you could create a Server command to tell the kiosk to run its virus software.

Server

Ability to filter domains/pages for Usage Stats reports

You now have the ability to add categories in the Usage Stats reports. This enables you to view only the pages or domains listed in that category, instead of all pages or domains viewed by your users. For example, if you want to view only the usage reports for a rewards program you may be running, you can set those pages or domains as a particular category.

Server

Expansion of Server Journal Entries to every level (including Site, Group, Kiosk and Project)

This feature allows you to add notes to the different levels of your kiosk project (including Site, Group, Kiosk and Project). Prior to this, notes were only available at the kiosk level. But now if you want to make a note that pertains to a group of kiosks located at a particular store number or in the west wing of your building, you can.

Server

Additional support for seamless integration of remote management software

We have expanded our capabilities to use multiple remote management software within the same kiosk site. For example you can use Log Me In and VNC within the same site, so that if you prefer one to the other in some of the kiosk locations or are fazing one out, KioWare won’t hinder you from using either.

Server

v 4.3.0

10/2008

KWS email alert status scalability

Email notifications/status/alert configuration is now scalable to the project, group, and site level.

Server

Support for 64-bit server

Report Graphing

Added graphical reports for usage and heartbeat reporting

Server

CSV Exporting from Reports

Server

Kiosk File Audit Feature

Ability to create a list of files, including their checksums, on a kiosk that KioWare will check to make sure the file exists and isn't corrupt.

Server

v 4.0.0

11/2007

Flexible User Accounts

It is very easy to limit what your users can log on and see. Completely flexible user accounts, roles and permissions control user abilities at a functional level.

Server

Improved Content Updating

Simplified client content updating procedures that include application files, KioWare updates and OS updates. To support cellular networks, content transfer now checks for file truncation and corruption errors.

Server

Improved Remote Mangement

Ability to reboot or shutdown the computer, as well as restart KioWare remotely from the KioWare Server Console.

Server

Ad Hoc Grouping of Kiosks

This feature enables ad hoc grouping, meaning kiosk projects can be sorted into groups beyond the project level. Groups can contain other groups, projects or individual kiosks. For instance, a company may have its kiosk projects organized by territories for easy categorization. With ad hoc grouping, a company can also sort those same projects by an unlimited number of groups, such as high performing versus low performing stores or urban versus suburban stores, and then push out different content based on those groups. This way, the company can easily display a different promotion to urban stores than suburban stores.

The addition of ad hoc data structures is useful for storing custom data about each kiosk (ex, hardware, location, contact info), which can be imported from a spreadsheet.

Server
