Capita Chooses Acquire for Bett 2012 Kiosks
Two interactive touch-screen kiosks were used on the Capita stand at Bett 2012 to showcase their SIMS (School Information Management System) software solutions. The creative team at Working Solutions used the ‘Acquire’ kiosk software as a platform and developed original, engaging content which provided an interactive journey enabling visitors to quickly appreciate the advantages of Capita’s solutions.
SIMS Discover was short-listed in the Leadership and Management Solutions category of the BETT Awards 2012. The tool allows school leaders to be alerted when children fall into various categories such as a vulnerable group with poor attendance and behaviour or children that have gained 100 house points with full attendance. They can then address issues or provide encouragement to help raise their pupils’ achievement in school.
Working Solutions Creative team had just two weeks to provide the interactive solution for the kiosks. The end result was made possible thanks to the flexibility of Acquire’s software platform, which enables the rapid development of any type of kiosk application. The creative team is comprised of designers and programmers, who ensured Capita’s corporate look and feel was integrated into the application, and a special software plug-in was developed to provide the unique customer journey.
