Voted "most likely" to have a profound effect on the future of museums ― visitor tracking and communication improved with interactive touchscreen solution from Green Guestbook Inc and Canvys

We chose Canvys' commercial-grade 19 inch all-in-one touchscreen when the product came with strong referrals

Green Guestbook, a Web-based visitor registration system, was recently awarded the Most Promising Material of the Future by the American Association of Museums' (AAM) Center for the Future of Museums. Green Guestbook's award showcases how interactive digital technology quickly enables an organization to capture visitor data needed to advance its programs.

Green Guestbook is used to collect email addresses, compile demographics and conduct customized surveys. Organizations can rate their best marketing resources, such as newspapers, radio or word-of-mouth, and even map a visitor's itinerary to and from their venue. Data, including attendee demographics, interests and expectations can be automatically codified and shared with partner organizations such as event planners, sister institutions or chambers of commerce.

"The main focus is to move away from paper correspondence and optimize the use of dynamic, integrated Web-based communications," says Ellie Carlson, President of Green Guestbook. "This system also serves as a virtual tour guide, linking guests to other area destinations."

Green Guestbook subscribers purchase the software license and the screen as a package. The recommended hardware is from Canvys, a Division of Richardson Electronics. "We chose Canvys' commercial-grade 19 inch all-in-one touchscreen when the product came with strong referrals," Carlson adds. "Its proven durability is key as the Green Guestbook is located in high-traffic public venues."

"Green Guestbook's creative use of the Canvys touchscreen product serves the broader purpose of acquiring data needed to track museum attendance patterns," says Beth Hild, Canvys global marketing manager. "Interactive technology, such as touch, enables organizations to make the immediate connections which enable consumer mapping."

Green Guestbook Inc is a Chicago based company providing a touchscreen, Web-based visitor registration system to any public site or venue that wants to better communicate with its visitors. Contact Elizabeth Carlson, 312.771.2400, or for more information.
