VKA e.V. and spo-comm GmbH – The spo-book WINDBOX II Quad widely connected

“We focus on the human being” - Under this guiding principle around 2,000 staff members of VKA e.V. are taking care of the well-being of needy elderly people every day. The VKA e.V. (Verein katholischer Altenhilfeeinrichtungen, engl: Association of catholic aids) is based in the North Rhine-Westphalian city Hamm. While the VKA e.V. was officially launched in the early 1990s, its origins date back to the 19th century. The association is represented in Paderborn with 18 residential and nursing homes, four day care facilities and the outpatient nursing service called “VKA ambulant”.

Challenge

With a care facility in the dimension of VKA e.V. one might think that the staff could easily lose the overview of all the processes going on in the association. Each location is individually planned, organized, and each has its own accounting. Therefore flexibility and a clear system are very important for the VKA.
With the help of a special software it is possible for the employees to access the central servers at the headquarters by remote control from any location. This means that the VKA is able to beat two birds with one stone: Apart from a uniform platform structure for all employees the association also manages to collect all data and information directly.
An uncomplicated and reliable Mini-PC therefore serves the team as an office-client.

Solution

The Mini-PC which is mentioned here is the spo-book WINDBOX II Quad.
The passively cooled Embedded-PC fits perfectly behind every display and is the perfect solution for the office operations of the catholic association. Since no active fan is used in the WINDBOX-series it is possible to create yourself a quiet work environment. The four processor cores of the IPC, as well as up to eight gigabytes of memory, ensure a smooth operating interface.

Result

Those who set high priority on durability make the right choice with the passively cooled solutions from spo-comm. Just like the VKA e.V. which uses the spo-book WINDBOX II Quad and relies on the latest generation of fail-safety.

The hardware offers state-of-the-art technology, for instance the USB 3.0 connections, the eight GB working memory, or the powerful processor that runs with only 10 watt energy.

The system is cooled passively, protected by a robust metal housing, and thanks to its very thin construction, customers can integrate it in the environment unobtrusively. And they have even more choices in respect to the software available as the WINDBOX II Quad is aligned with all Windows operating systems from version 7 on, no matter if 32 or 64 bit.

spo-book WINDBOX II Quad: All good things come in fours

Never change a winning team: And true to this maxim, the mini pc forge provides – together with MSI IPC – the meanwhile fourth generation of the WINDBOX II series (MS-9A65) on the market which one is highly presentable. With at least four processor cores, the new model is a first division player with respect to performance capability and convinces with a contemporary equipment that leaves nothing to be desired.
20 Mar 2017 Array ( [id] => 599 [title] => eyefactive and spo-comm – MultiTOUCH systems par excellence - Thanks to our spo-book KUMO series [authorId] => [active] => 1 [shortDescription] => How would we describe eyefactive in just one sentence? Probably like that: MultiTouch and MultiUser technologies XXL. And this is still understated. Everything started in 2009 when the company, which originally was a spin-off of the University of Applied Sciences in Wedel, was founded. The eyefactive GmbH quickly became a name due to its innovative ideas and is today regarded as the leader developer and provider of interactive digital signage solutions. The repertoire of eyefactive ranges from MultiTouch tables and interactive video walls to a self-developed touch screen software platform, leaving nothing to be desired. [description] =>

Challenge

The big MultiTouch systems from eyefactive are quite unique on the digital signage market. This was again proved at the ISE 2017 in Amsterdam, where the latest interactive signage solutions were presented in collaboration with 3M. Do you wonder how these solutions look like? Packed in a stable metal case you can find the screens with up to 80 touch points in the form of tables, terminals or video walls within eyefactive’s product range. Characteristics of the MultiTouch systems are their appearance, the ingenious MultiUser software as well as the sophisticated technology. In order to run these systems it needs a Mini-PC which fits the graphical requirements of the XXL touchscreens. This leads us to the question which Mini-PC is up to this task.

Solution

As if we had known it. The Mini-PC which is responsible for the visual power comes from the ranks of spo-comm. Equipped with an nVidia GT740M and a Core i5 of the fourth generation, the spo-book KUMO III has been responsible for graphics and computing operations inside the touch solutions. The Embedded-PC is now replaced by its big brother, the spo-book KUMO IV. With the KUMO IV spo-comm notches up the performance of the KUMO-series and created, with the help of an nVidia GTX 1060 as well as with a Core i5 of the sixth generation, an awesome Mini-PC. That’s why touch solutions in the format of 16:9 and a resolution of 1920 x 1080 are not a problem for the digital signage player.

Result

How to build a great MultiTouch table or a MultiTouch terminal:
Take high performance software as well as smart object recognition technology from eyefactive, a first-class display from 3M, a professional Mini-PC from spo-comm, wrapping the whole things nicely in a slim metal housing and connecting it with electricity. Last step: Be amazed. Finished!

eyefactive and spo-comm – MultiTOUCH systems par excellence - Thanks to our spo-book KUMO series

20 Feb 2017 Array ( [id] => 597 [title] => Fruchtbare Erde: The spo-book BRICK i3 in green atmospheres [authorId] => [active] => 1 [shortDescription] => The Fruchtbare Erde GmbH has its home in the beautiful German city Dortmund. Once initially a shopping community, which was established in 1978 by five women, it developed to over time to two health food stores/supermarkets. In addition to organic food the supermarkets also include natural fabrics and natural cosmetics. [description] =>

Challenge

Fruchtbare Erde experiences a great popularity in Dortmund and beyond. This shows the large steady expansion of sales areas and the range of products but also the large number satisfied customers. One of the biggest reasons for this is the outmost care range. But also the responsible and consistently friendly staff and the comfortable ambience of both stores play a significant role. The final impression, however, remains with each client before the purchase when stopping at the checkout. In order to shine even here the team of Fruchtbare Erde relies on a failsafe computer system.

Solution

The spo-book BRICK i3, which has its name from its shape and size, provides the perfect basis for the checkouts of Fruchtbare Erde. The Mini-PC is not only compact but also passively cooled and as powerful as robust. A Core i3 processor of the firth generation clocked up to 2.1 GHz, thus ensuring smooth and fast procedures at the checkout at simultaneously extremely high energy efficiency.
In addition: Thanks to sufficient serial ports, peripherals such as scanners and printers, will always find a matching connector. If that is not enough: The VESA wall brackets allow an easy assembly of the system, whether at a checkout or on a wall.

Result

The team of Fruchtbare Erde has chosen one of spo-comm’s system in a careful selection. The spo-book BRICK i3 represents a generation of durability and will reliably support the stores in the future.
