“The KioskCom’s Self Service Excellence Awards are now in their 5th year, and have become the focus of the industry.,” said General Manager of KioskCom’s Self-Service Expo, Lawrence Dvorchik. “Honoring the most successful and innovative self-service and interactive digital media solutions, the Self Service Excellence Awards are unique in that this Awards Contest has always had a core focus on the success of the self-service and interactive digital media solution based on the measurements set forth by the deploying organization, and not just the technology suppliers.”
Livewire was engaged to create a custom solution that allowed consumers to enter into an interactive basketball shooting competition to be utilized in a cross-promotional campaign launched by T-Mobile, the National Basketball Association, and Sony. The system consisted of a touch screen kiosk for users’ data entry, arcade-style basketball games with large LCD panels to display the players’ Fave 5 selections, and a 10-foot giant phone to permit winners of the basketball shoot-out to play a virtual spin-to-win game and take home prizes promoting the T-Mobile, NBA, and Sony brands.
Mr. McCracken commented “The T-Mobile implementation was particularly exciting given the companies involved and the technologies that we utilized to bring the promotion to life in a very short timeframe. It’s an honor to be recognized by the industry for this effort which showcases Livewire’s experience and leadership in self-service technologies.”
