SoftBrands, Inc. (Amex: SBN), a global supplier of enterprise application software, announced today that it has signed a distribution agreement with TabletKiosk for their portable workstation solution. SoftBrands has selected TabletKiosk’s Sahara Slate PC line to launch this initiative. The units are blue-tooth/wireless Tablet PCs and run on the Microsoft Windows operating system, including Windows Vista, Windows XP Professional or Windows XP Tablet PC Edition.
Coupling the TabletKiosk product with the SoftBrands suite of products will provide SoftBrands’ customers the freedom to move about the property and deliver services without being tied to a reception desk or service station. Using the Sahara Slate PC by TabletKiosk, SoftBrands’ customers will be able to check-in a guest, book a spa appointment, make dining reservations, place food and beverage orders or reserve a tee-time, all the while un-tethered from a desk or station that uses a traditional PC workstation. In addition, as the units provide the full functionality of the Windows operating system, many third party applications can be accessed on Sahara throughout the property or enterprise.
