There are countless needs to inform, assist, direct and transact with consumers in restaurants, hotels and attractions – and tablets are ideally suited to make that happen both professionally and simply.
We’re all starting to see tablets in use throughout the hospitality and tourism industries for digital signage and touch screen kiosks. Interactive information kiosks - on counter tops and tables, floor-mounted or coming off walls – are complementing or even taking over the day-to-day tasks of staff in everything from restaurants to museums.
For interactive digital signage, tablets just make sense – diminutive displays that are ready to help, always accurate and filled with knowledge. Nothing truly replaces talking to staff – but in busy environments, tablets can help resolve many guest questions before staff become available.
Tied to back-end systems – like inventory and room management – tablets have the real-time information and smarts to upsell guests on the spot – adding to operating bottom lines with minimal staffing impacts. See how iPad kiosks, tablet stands and enclosures can be used in hospitality and tourism on our case studies and inspiration page.

Major hotels have full-time concierges in their lobbies, there to answer questions and optimize experiences for guests. But the vast majority of hotels don’t have the room count or resources to employ a full-time concierge – so front desk staffers spend a lot of time passing along dining recommendations, directions to shopping malls, and recommendations on what to do while in the area. You can free up your staff time with tablet kiosks used for interactive digital signage in your lobby and soft seating areas.
Armodilo has equipped entire hotels with iPad kiosk enclosures that are fixed in every guest room – providing a virtual concierge that includes all the hotel services information otherwise contained in binders and folders on desktops and in drawers. Connected to networks, the information is always available and up to date. In-room tablets can also be tied in to ordering systems for room service, and to up-sell guests on options such as spa services and late checkouts.
Interactive tablets with almost bottomless information capability are replacing printed paper signs associated with exhibits and scenes in museums and galleries. Visitors can use tablet kiosk enclosures to explore detailed information about featured exhibits, and some museums have even tied in technology such as NFC-based visitor cards to serve highly personalized information and tie it back into loyalty systems.
If you’ve visited a theme park or similar attraction, you’ve undoubtedly exited through a gift shop and seen rows of instant-printed photos capturing a fun moment in your experience. Using tablet-powered touchscreen kiosks for guest photos reduces printing waste, and enables guests to order, buy and print the photos they want, on the spot.
A big attraction of tablets housed in Armodilo enclosures is the aesthetic quality. Small and beautifully engineered, Armodilo tablet enclosures look great in any environment, and can have their colors tuned to match any environment and brand.
