Lone Star College-CyFair Event Challenges

  • Too much manpower is needed to adequately staff special events.
  • Attendance at events is often inaccurately recorded.
  • Feedback surveys don’t capture high participation levels.
  • Marketing efforts are hard to evaluate with poor student communications.
  • Unsecured tablets are at risk of theft at busy events.

Solution

Lone Star College-CyFair in Cypress, Texas, uses Lilitab Tablet Kiosks at all campus special events for a variety of reasons including student surveys, marketing initiatives, and event check-in. The College Relations staff creates a survey for every event, helping them better connect and communicate with the students.

Before the school purchased the tablet kiosks, the survey tablets used to just sit out on tables, requiring extra staff to monitor the area. Now they only need one staff member for all the tablets in use, and they no longer worry about theft. “You have a great product that many people will enjoy,” says Miranda Rivera, Department Assistant for College Relations at Lone Star College-CyFair.

These modular tablet enclosures allow for quick tool-less setup and breakdown; ideal for use in temporary event spaces. They can also be stored in rugged form-fit cases for storage between programs.

The iPad’s long battery life combined with the Lilitab’s wireless transparency means schools can have a portable feedback station nearly anywhere. Lilitabs can also be plugged into any outlet to provide convenient constant charging of the iPad with the patented snap-in MagDOCK lock with pass-through power.

Beautiful backdrops and banners display the school’s marketing or seasonal/semester messages.

Tablet security is key to the design—once installed in the Head Unit, the tablet is safely secured as an integral part of the kiosk. For added security, the entire kiosk may be cable locked or permanently bolted to the floor.

Results

Lilitab Tablet Kiosks allow Lone Star College-CyFair to capture firm attendance counts at special events.

The added backdrops and banners allow visual communications from a greater distance, encouraging improved interest and participation from students.

The college receives clear and concise feedback from students, helping them redefine events and marketing strategies to those that connect best with their students.
