While designing the retail kiosk, UI designers adopted skin styles and layouts similar to existing retail kiosks. The online kiosk application was designed to offer customers “choice and control” with a web based system. Buyers could click through the application and assemble a built-to-order configuration choosing components based on their budgets and needs.
Retail Kiosk Functionality for Buyers
Silicus delivered the retail kiosk with features for buyers to configure different products, check all possible combinations and their pricing and be able to choose the best configuration of the products. Once the configuration was built, users could check out and complete their order.
