What is computeIT?
D-Tech’s computeIT is a self-service laptop dispensing kiosk. Perfect for laptop loan lockers or vending, computeIT is designed to safely store, charge and issue laptops and other similar devices to customers via a user-friendly touch screen interface.
Available from 12 bays, the computeIT modular locker system can be tailored to suit the needs of any library or public space. With its steel chassis and doors that come in a range of colours to complement your library aesthetics, computeIT is an extremely secure centralised location to entrust with valued mobile ICT equipment, providing effective crime prevention as well as ICT management.
Individual user bays are the optimum size to store most makes and models of laptop, netbook, PC tablet or iPads and offer a safe charging environment for access by users of all ages, ideal for community spaces, public and academic libraries.
Two types of charging options are offered; SmartLine™ and PowaSave™. In both cases, the safe power management system ensures all devices are charged simultaneously in the fastest possible time without overcharging, blowing fuses or tripping circuit breakers.
Desktops may be bulky, but they are always going to be accessible to thieves, sat on top of desks. Laptops, however, can be stored securely in steel chassis lockers; which also provide a safe charging station.
With the computeIT self-service dispensing kiosk, your laptops can go anywhere you want them to! Library patrons can take their checked-out laptop to their favourite library area, whilst schools can take them on field trips, and to the classroom. The portability of laptops makes it easier to make notes, complete worksheets, save work, and research, and with the removal of bulky desktops in the library, there will be more room for other library initiatives.
Smart Charge Deployment
Never lend a device with low battery
Don’t make your users endure the frustration of checking out a device to work on, only for it to run out of battery minutes later. When a device is returned to the computeIT lending bay, it is not made available for loan until the battery reaches a certain charge percentage, set by you, to ensure that every device you lend a user is sufficiently charged to complete their task.
Children love technology, and they understand it. Many students who would struggle with a more traditional style of learning can grasp difficult concepts through technology, and the gamification of many aspects of learning enables many students to be more engaged in their studies than they would be with a textbook. Could our laptop vending machine solution help engage your students?
As the world moves away from the desktop, flexible solutions such as laptop loan lockers provide a broad range of budgeting options depending on your needs and the requirements of your students. From very basic tablets and notebooks to high-performing laptops. Another very cost-effective option could be to allow your students the opportunity to bring their own device (BYOD), particularly as they move up through education towards Higher Education.
