TIPS for Windows

TIPS Kiosk Software for Windows is the ideal kiosk software solution for presenting, securing and managing web-enabled content and applications on public-access kiosks, shared workstations and/or digital signage systems. TIPS runs on top of Windows 7 or greater and eliminates all access to the network and O/S. It is compatible with thick, thin or zero client configurations, so it can be used in either a traditional or virtual machine environment.

TIPS™ for Windows Versions

Three versions of TIPS for Windows kiosk software allow multiple price points for the functionality you need, whether for a basic kiosk, more advanced peripheral device management or an enterprise-level system with remote monitoring and session level statistics. This chart shows a quick view of each of our TIPS for Windows kiosk software levels. If you need a more detailed list, then check out the Detailed Version Comparison Chart at the bottom of this page to see which version is right for you!
