SlabbKiosks was successful after submitting their bid along with four other companies, to manufacture, deliver, and install customized kiosks to forty one (41) offices of the Arkansas Department of Community Correction. The interactive, self-service kiosks will be located at probation offices throughout the state and utilized by selected minimum risk clients to check in with their probation officers at stipulated times throughout their supervision.
SlabbKiosks based the kiosks on its X6 model, which was customized to include a laser printer, a Topaz signature pad and a fingerprint reader and card reader. SlabbKiosks partnered with Marquis Software to provide the specialized interface which would facilitate payments to the Information Network of Arkansas (INA) as well as the software which would enable the recognition of the user's fingerprint and capture their signature and photo.
SlabbKiosks' President, Peter te Lintel Hekkert indicated his enthusiasm working with the State on a project like this, "We were truly elated when we received confirmation that we were awarded the contract from the State. Having provided similar kiosks for courthouses, sheriff's offices and Departments of Correction in other states, we knew that we could successfully design and deliver the product the State of Arkansas needed." He continued, "As with every project, strong relationships and the trust they bring are incredibly important. Arkansas had a software partner in Marquis and SlabbKiosks had an install partner in ARS; mutual trust allowed the four of us to focus on our individual expertise and go from discussion to deployment in 3 weeks!"
Shrikant Mandapaty, Project and Enterprise Program Management Administrator at the Arkansas Department of Community Correction expressed his satisfaction with the outcome of the project. "We had very tight deadlines for the implementation of this project, but we wanted to ensure that we had a cost effective, appropriate solution, both in terms of hardware and software, to ensure that the kiosks could be effectively deployed and utilized." He added, "With SlabbKiosks' past experience in this area, their reputation for short lead times and their partnership with a software company the Department has worked with for the past 13 years, they understood our requirements and were able to deliver a high quality product within the timeframe we needed them."
