SPB Kiosk is an enterprise tool which helps you control how your Pocket PC devices are used. With SPB Kiosk you can lock the device to one or several business applications and restrict usage of any other features like games, multimedia, web browsing etc.
Benefits of using SPB Kiosk are:
Improved productivity. Users do not get distracted by entertainment features of Pocket PC devices and so put more time into work.
Reduced technical support costs. Users cannot accidentally corrupt settings on the device, install programs which are not compatible with your business software etc. This helps to avoid a lot of support incidents.
How it works
Device administrator specifies applications to run in kiosk mode and configures other settings using desktop-side Kiosk Builder application. SPB Kiosk can be used with most enterprise applications, both native and managed (based on .NET Compact Framework).
Then Kiosk Builder produces customized Kiosk CAB file which can be deployed to as many devices as needed. After SPB Kiosk is deployed on a device, it provides kiosk mode for selected applications. Easy!
SPB Kiosk keeps the device in kiosk mode using a number of advanced software technologies, including:
Kernel-level application block
Control Panel applet block
Start menu block
SPB Kiosk Engine Features
SPB Kiosk Engine is the most flexible edition of SPB Kiosk. It can run one or several Pocket PC applications you choose in kiosk mode and provides means to switch between them.
Features of SPB Kiosk Engine include:
Native and .NET CF application support
Kiosk Start menu
SPB Kiosk allows device administrator to gain unrestricted access to the device. This is useful to fix something or to change settings after SPB Kiosk is already deployed.
To enter admin mode tap and hold the stylus for 10 seconds anywhere on the screen and then enter your secret unlock code (specified in Kiosk Builder).
