Net kiosk taps into big market

WA’s PieNetworks continues to win sales for its Internet kiosks.

The latest deal is with the Western Australian Department of Commerce and Trade for the supply, installation, commissioning and maintenance of up to 100 Internet kiosks.

Recently it signed to supply 100 Internet kiosks to the UK in a deal with NWP Communic-ations Limited, the largest independent provider of payphones in the UK.

The kiosks are to be installed this month in motorway service stations, hotels and shopping centres throughout the UK in a major trial that will run until the end of 2001.

Pie has nearly 600 kiosks operating across Australia and is on target to have 900 operating by the end of the year.

PieNetworks also supplied 130 kiosks to the Victorian Department of Human Services.

The deal with the WA Depart-ment of Commerce and Trade will have kiosks, to be known as Telecentre Access Points (TAPS), located in various regional locations in Western Australia. The contract is for an initial period of 12 months, with the option of two further 12-month extensions.

The WA manufacturer is leading the way in public access Internet infrastructure solutions.

PieNetworks has signed agree-ments and trial programs with airports, shopping centres, govern-ments and major companies including Lend Lease, Caltex, Hungry Jack’s, Shell, New Zealand Post and Coles-Myer to provide kiosks for Internet access and in-house advertising and shopping in public areas.

According to industry portal,, the Government sector will account for 44 per cent of the 2001 worldwide market for Internet-based units.

A public Internet kiosk (or other device) is a physical portal or conduit delivering targeted information to the public.

“Ultimately the TAPS will achieve real time, measurable communication to a targeted audience, which makes the public Internet kiosks a valuable new medium for governments and the corporate market,” said Campbell Smith, managing director of PieNetworks.
