inLighten iTOUCH-P Commercial Tablets & Enclosures Awarded 2016 'Hot Product' Recognition

Interactive Solution cited by Religious Product News for Creating Customizable Experiences Adaptable to Any Environment

Jan. 12, 2017

inLighten®, an industry leader in the field of self-service kiosks, digital signage and interactive products announced today that, Religious Product News, a publication that reaches 40,000 church leaders, has named inLighten’s iTOUCH-P line of commercial tablets and enclosurea one of its 'Hot Products' for 2016. Selected for its multi-purpose versatility, commercial-grade reliability and web-based interface for remote management, inLighten's iTOUCH-P Tablet enables congregations as well as community service agencies, advocacy groups and other non-profit organizations to easily put a wealth of dynamic information at a user's fingertips. iTOUCH-P tablets can also be configured to accept donations and payments using debit/credit cards or online payment services.

In response to the award, inLighten's Director of Communications, Matt Welter, said, "inLighten is honored by this recognition and is gratified that so many congregations have found our interactive products to be a useful and meaningful addition to the way they engage their members, visitors and the general public."

The iTOUCH system gives churches complete control of creating the experience they want tablet users to have. An administrator is able to set up a playlist of images or videos as the default on-screen content designed to attract attention when the tablet is not in use. Upon touching the screen, users can be directed to the church's website, prompted with a menu of giving options or directed to additional selections such as event registration, item purchases or volunteer sign-ups. Additionally, users can access special content menus that the church can populate with videos, printable.PDF files, PowerPoint presentations and more. Best of all the user's browsing, giving or other activity will occur in a secure user environment that can be configured by the church as desired with controls that are built into the iTOUCH software.

To complement the multi-purpose utility of the iTOUCH tablet, inLighten has produced a selection of secure, attractive tablet enclosures that make it possible for congregations and other organizations to safely deploy their iTOUCH tablets in any setting to ensure that they're both highly visible and highly secure. inLighten VP, Jeff Taylor, described the mounting and placement choices that are available. "Because no two facilities are ever alike, we felt that it was important to provide a variety of mounting and placement options to meet our clients' needs and to comply with ADA requirements. Among the enclosures we offer are wall mounts that can be recessed, offset or angled. There are also countertop enclosures as well as a free-standing kiosk with base and pedestal. All our enclosures feature steel construction for durability and security."

Taylor went on to explain, "By listening to our client's needs and soliciting their input, inLighten's has put together an integrated solution that gives our clients the tools to deliver a best-in-class interactive experience and to make that experience accessible in just about any physical space and user environment. As these new iTOUCH solutions are widely deployed, the feedback we receive about them will go into evolving and expanding the iTOUCH product line so that we can continue to serve the interests of our clients."

The iTOUCH-P product is featured in the December 2016 issue of Religious Product News, appearing in both print and online editions of the publication.
