US-Based Kiosk Manufacturer and Ireland-Based Green Technology Manufacturer Partner to Offer Solar-Powered Outdoor Kiosks to North American Market
ZIVELO, a recognized leader within the self-service kiosk and digital signage manufacturing industry and EcoTech Computers, an innovative developer of green self-service technology announce today their exclusive North American distribution agreement. This agreement grants ZIVELO exclusive rights to North American sales of the Eco Kiosk, a solar-powered standalone kiosk developed by EcoTech Computers for outdoor use.
EcoTech cites ZIVELO’s global brand awareness as a key factor in their decision to form this new partnership to expand their Eco Kiosk product line into the North American market.
“ZIVELO have proven themselves as a market leader within the kiosk industry and we are very excited to work with them to expand the offering of our outdoor, green kiosk solution,” says Peter McManus, founder and CEO of EcoTech Computers, “The steps that ZIVELO has taken to be a green manufacturer have also influenced our decision to form this partnership. I am confident that both teams will work very well together to deliver this fantastic new product to the world.”
The Eco Kiosk integrates cutting-edge green energy development with a patented power management system to operate solely on the power of the sun and an optional hand crank – eliminating the need for power and data access. Not only does this system reduce the power consumption of the kiosk, it can also predict upcoming power availability by monitoring local weather forecasts to predict sunshine levels. With hybrid models that can incorporate battery or electrically wired backup systems available for areas with intermittent sunshine, the Eco Kiosk is a power house in the outdoor kiosk market.
“The Eco Kiosk is the apex of green self-service technology, with each deployed terminal saving an average of 9.5 tons of carbon dioxide emissions per year,” says Ziver Birg, CEO of ZIVELO, “Not only do these kiosks eliminate electricity costs, but they offer unlimited outdoor placement options – breaking down the barriers of today’s conventional kiosk limitations. We’re excited to combine ZIVELO’s North American infrastructure with EcoTech’s innovative products to push the boundaries of self-service technology.”
