Internet Kiosk – Picardie Regional Unemployment Agency

Picardie region, 20 Novembre, 14.00pm

The Picardie regional unemployment agency project:
Provide visitors at job fairs with the ability to sign up on the agency’s website in order to access their resumes or apply to an opening.
Project constraints:
- Limited budget
- Software compatible with recycled computers
- Low maintenance: ability to configure easily the limits of navigation authorised depending on the job fairs

Linutop OS is an inexpensive solution, which allows to repurpose a large panel of computers: the minimal system configuration (starting at 700MHZ PC) makes it very easy to recycle older PCs which would otherwise be hard to maintain now that Windows XP is no longer supported.
Linutop OS includes Linutop Kiosk which allows to configure the homepage in fullscreen without a navigation toolbar if needed and control the navigation through blacklists and whitelists.
The integrity of these systems is guaranteed by using Linutop Lock which can prevent the system from any alterations, whether by virus or user manipulation. This feature is key to avoid incurring ongoing maintenance costs that run typically quite high for computers in public space

A demo version of Linutop OS demo, available for download, will allow each and every user to experiment with “Linutop Kiosk”.
