Web-based Kiosk System to LYNX
Orlando, Fla. (July 2004) --- Ascendovations, Inc. a University of Central Florida Technology Incubator firm, has recently completed a contract which involved delivering a web-based kiosk for use by LYNX - the Central Florida Regional Transportation Authority.
The contract involved developing for LYNX, customized software and integrating it within an attractive touch screen kiosk unit for the Work And Gain Economic Self-sufficiency (WAGES) Program.
The software portion of the LYNX contract was developed by Ascendovations primarily for use with a kiosk, but has found other uses. It is already installed in pilot mode at the Orange County One-Stop Career Center, Workforce's of Central Florida's largest site. "We have developed a software system that provides information and enables participating workers to register for the program at the LYNX kiosk or wherever the application resides," said Hartage
"The kiosk and software enable LYNX to market and educate users about the LYNX WAGES transportation program." said, Gaidi Hartage, President of Ascendovations. "It also allows users to easily apply for the LYNX WAGES program without any interaction by LYNX Staff."
"The kiosk application has remote monitoring capabilities, which means, we are capable of monitoring all the kiosks from a central web-based system to report on usage and identify potential problems before they occur," Hartage added.
Ascendovations is seeking contracts with other transportation systems who receive WAGES grant funding from the State of Florida or who are looking at adapting similar self-service technology. The company is also working with a Cendant Hotel Property Management location in Orlando to pilot automated express guest check-in and check-out which will be ready at the end of 2004.
