Virtual Systems Corp., creator of Mail-Shop and Digi-Shop software solutions for direct mail and printing, announced the release of its breakthrough Virtual Kiosk shop-floor data-collection system. The new Virtual Kiosk, a biometric touch-screen appliance and application interface, is distinguished by its unsurpassed ease of use and innovative technological features. The Virtual Kiosk adds greater levels of versatility and security that dramatically improves the effectiveness of shop-floor data collection and reporting.
