Kiosk is an optional Companion feature and has the following types:

  • Desk reservation kiosk without a personalized experience: floor plan, desk reservation, navigation, and check-in.
  • Personalized kiosk for visitors: visitor schedule, available desk reservation, navigation to available spaces, find the host, and order food from the cafeteria.
  • Personalized kiosk for employees: employees can access desktop Companion on a general kiosk for an alternative way to interact with Companion.
  • Cafeteria order fulfillment kiosk: cafeteria staff can manage orders.
  • Meeting room kiosk:
    • Inside the meeting room: users can view the meeting room schedule, capacity, and resources, book the room for the current day, adjust comfort settings, and order food from the cafeteria.
    • Outside the meeting room: users can view the meeting room resources and the availability and capacity of a room, they can create an instant booking, and view the room schedule for a day.
The desk reservation kiosk and the personalized kiosks have the following common features:
  • Live map views that indicate space availability, occupancy, and safety.
  • Email delivery for navigation paths.
  • Facility updates, including news items and Covid-19 policies and guidelines.
