End Users

End Users

End users are the biggest asset to a business, and delivering solutions that increase their productivity provide massive advantage. ThinKiosk delivers a number of features that are designed to make life easier for the end users, allowing them to work remotely, and simplify the way they interact and consume remote corporate systems and data.

Sector Focus

ThinKiosk delivers a range of different features that can add real life benefits to different industries and sectors. From smartcard support for healthcare, to remote working initiatives for the enterprise. Click on the example sectors below to see how ThinKiosk can deliver specific features and benefits for that sector.

As part of the drive to centralize patient data, many healthcare organizations are turning to virtual desktop solutions, partly to reduce costs, but also to secure the sensitive patient data within the confines of the datacenter. ThinKiosk can turn existing PC’s into centrally managed Windows-based thin clients, delivering clinicians a familiar look and feel, but more importantly a secure workspace from where they can access healthcare systems and patient data. They will also have access to legacy apps that are installed locally in the case that apps cannot be delivered centrally.

The challenges in education focus on how to deliver an improved learning experience while at the same time keeping one eye on the ever shrinking budgets. This is often where VDI and remote desktop environments come into play, and where ThinKiosk can assist by enabling existing Windows devices to be converted to Windows-based thin clients, saving costs yet delivering a familiar working environment both in the classroom environment as well as remotely.

The key to delivering technology solutions within corporate enterprise is to reduce costs and at the same time drive the business forward with innovative and competitive advantage. With ThinKiosk an organization can not only repurpose their existing Windows hardware into secure Windows-based thin clients, they can also take advantage of the centralized management and patching features. They can also embrace BYOD and remote or home working by deploying a secure, policy driven secure workspace environment.

"We could continue to waste our time with our current solution or we could deploy the ThinScale ThinKiosk solution. It used to take an hour and a half or so to configure a thin client with HP, but with ThinKiosk it takes about 2 minutes, even if you have the write filter enabled!"

“We tested several products based on various criteria including, cost, ease of implementation, central management capability and user friendliness to name but a few. Based on our criteria, ThinKiosk scored the highest in all categories.”

“Due to shrinking budgets, our school district had to find a way to extend the functional lifespan of our 16,000 Windows computers. Users love that MagicFilter makes their thin client behave like a regular computer…”
