Meridian celebrates a decade of kiosk software development
Meridian, a kiosk manufacturer and software developer, will be celebrating its 10th year of developing kiosk-driven software.
"Manufacturing our own kiosks and developing our own software has brought tremendous value to our customers," Meridian founder and CEO Chris Gilder said in a press release. "We're able to provide them with a seamless solution and guide them through each step of the process."
Meridian's kiosk software solutions include a secure browser software platform, remote kiosk management software, a software development kit and a suite of off-the-shelf software solutions.
"Our software suite is designed and developed to create a cohesive experience for our clients and provide a better solution for their users," said Paul Burden, the company's director of software.
Meridian's MzeroPlatform serves as the foundation for all of the company's software solutions. As a standalone product, MzeroPlatform functions as a secure kiosk browser, allowing companies to deploy web-based kiosks with web applications and URL whitelisting and blacklisting.
Meridian's remote management software, MzeroManage, is designed to manage multiple kiosks from remote locations.
"MzeroManage is ideal for businesses requiring system security and remote performance management," Gilder said. The remote management tool allows businesses to remotely access their kiosks to monitor health, customize alerts and run diagnostic reports and analytics.
MzeroCreate is Meridian's proprietary software development kit, which provides a suite of developer tools that allow full customization of MzeroPlatform. The SDK is designed with development modules, allowing users to develop kiosk applications that integrate with pre-integrated kiosk components. Integrated components include scanners, cameras, payment devices, dispensing devices and more.
"MzeroCreate provides software developers with the environment to quickly and efficiently develop and deploy compelling solutions," said Gilder. In the last decade, MzeroCreate has been utilized to develop kiosk applications for some of the biggest names in industries that include retail, automotive, insurance and higher education.
"We collaborated with Meridian to leverage their SDK. We used MzeroCreate to build a scalable, consistent and exceptional software program that successfully supports our global kiosk deployments for our OEM clients," said Todd Marcelle, CEO and co-founder of GoMoto.
Meridian's existing software infrastructure has allowed the company to develop a full suite of off-the-shelf kiosk software solutions. The suite includes MzeroPay bill payment, MzeroInterAct digital signage and MzeroDirectMe directory solutions. Meridian's off-the-shelf solutions have been deployed in various locations across the country, including airports, town centers and corporate buildings.
