In this case, our challenge was to support and improve e-kajet service – electronic form for registration created by mobileOn. Application security and blockade of any other tablet functionalities than form were crucial matters in this case. Another challenge was configuration of tablets so that they could work easily with an e-kajet service module with electronic form for contact details and marketing agreements collection during events, so that the company could replace paper forms with electronic ones.
During this implementation, we chose to configure mobile devices in Kiosk mode. Thanks to that, there’s only e-kajet application available on the device and no other application or browser can be turned on. We are sure that data collected on the device are safe and their security can’t be compromised by any other application. Also, thanks to Kiosk mode, the device battery can work for a long period of time, even up to 2 weeks. In addition, when an employee has a problem with the device but can’t describe it, we can remotely access the device and help with the issue. Also, reports about the device are generated periodically, so we can check if there’s a problem with the device. Tablet with Kiosk mode can be used during the events to collect contact data and marketing agreements.
