faytech Resistive Touchscreen PCs & Computers
Resistive touch technology can greatly enhance work productivity
All-in-one resistive touch computers are all around us. We encounter them at restaurants, point of sale devices when we swipe our cards, in malls at touch kiosks, supermarket checkout counters, restaurants, hotels and numerous other places. faytech North America is the USA based provider of resistive PC solutions. The products offered by faytech can transform and streamline the way that business is conducted in your organization.
The difference between capacitive and resistive touch desktop computers
Capacitive touchscreens are made by coating an insulator with a transparent conductor. When touched with a conductor, such as a stylus or human finger, the screen is able to identify the exact xy coordinates of the touch can be determined. Early capacitive touchscreens were binary, that is, they could not sense the pressure applied, just whether the screen was touched and where. This deficiency was overcome in later years and today, capacitive touchscreens are used in most smartphones and tablets.
TFT resistive touchscreen computer technologies, on the other hand, are made by placing a mesh of xy wires over the screen, then coating the mesh with a conductive cover. When touched with a stylus, finger or, indeed anything else, the pressure on the screen enables it to identify the coordinates touched. Thus, pressure is the stimulus, rather than conductivity, as in the case of capacitive touchscreens. Resistive touchscreens are generally less expensive to produce and are hardier than capacitive screens. For this reason, they are usually found in restaurants, hospitals, research facilities, and factories.
Why use faytech resistive touch all-in-one computers in commercial and industrial environments?
In many applications, resistive touchscreen PCs enable much more efficient interaction between the user and the application. One only needs to think of a point of sale application, for example: Presenting the employee with a screen of options and having them use their finger to select desired options has proven to have greatly improved the speed and accuracy of transaction. In this example, resistive touchscreen PCs have also been shown to significantly reduce the amount of training and the level of skill required by new employees. For example, using resistive touchscreen PCs, the employee does not need keyboarding skills.
The same observations can be made when a resistive touchscreen PC system is implemented in restaurants. Here screens are placed at eye level and no keyboards are attached. A few touches of the screen convey the necessary information to the application significantly increasing accuracy while reducing the effort and time involved.
In addition to these factors of ease of use and speed of interaction, resistive touchscreen PCs have advantages in other environments as well. In places such as hospitals and factories resistive touchscreen PCs are used because they are resistant to damage. This has implications for cost of operation as well as availability.
Resistive touchscreen PCs have also proven to be extremely useful in applications such as collaborative design, planning and project management. Whether its two engineers working together around a 40” touchscreen flat top desk, or a roomful of designers collaborating on a full wall screen, the days of drawing and redrawing designs, making and discarding clay models and so on, are now history. Changes or suggested changes can be made with a finger on the screen. Reverting to a previous version if the suggestion is rejected is as simple as touching an icon. Resistive touchscreen PCs have made the lives of collaborative workers easier and much more efficient.
In all of these applications resistive touchscreen PCs help to reduce the drudgery of the tasks being performed. Resistive touchscreen PCs provide an easy to use interface with application software. This allows employees to concentrate more on the task they are performing and less on reporting and record keeping. In this win-win situation drudgery is reduced or removed while speed and accuracy are increased.
These are just some of the many reasons businesses should look into whether they should not be deploying resistive touchscreen PCs. These modern computers have become indispensable to the competitive business as they increase the efficiency of employees who use them. Reduced cost and increased efficiency of labor are considerations no business person should ignore.
How are the faytech resistive touch desktop PCs going to affect the way you do business?
The development of resistive touchscreen PC technology continues. Recently, resistive touchscreen PCs have been introduced in many new business sectors. For example, generally, once there is a customer service process which has predictable scenarios and high volumes of transactions, resistive touchscreen PCs can play a part by having the customers interact with the touchscreen computer kiosk rather than a live customer service representative.
Commercial banks and credit unions have incorporated resistive touchscreen PCs into ATMs without customers even noticing. How many customers even noticed the disappearance of keyboards from these devices?
Perhaps even more noticeable was the introduction of airport passenger self check-in kiosks incorporating resistive touchscreen PC systems. Many passengers find these devices a quick and hassle free experience, and with the growth of travelers worldwide.
The introduction of the use of resistive touch computers will increase the productivity of most businesses. This technology will allow businesses to reduce costs, increase output, increase profits, and reduce costs for customers. Resistive touch PC computer systems may make the difference between a profitable and a failing business.
