About iHOLD

With the rise of university tuition fees, student recruitment has never been fiercer. Universities need to implement new marketing strategies and develop better communication facilities for prospective students and enrolled students alike. The key to a successful marketing strategy is deciphering what you communicate, to whom, and how. Thanks to imageHOLDERS, the digital solution to your marketing strategy is here.

iHOLD is a brand of iPad Kiosks, Tablet Enclosures, AV Displays and Slim Clients that have been specifically designed for use within the educational sector. Security, functionality and style were paramount throughout the design process of iHOLD - making these products ideal for use within high traffic areas including university campuses, student recruitment fairs and libraries.

Our iHOLD enclosures and kiosks include a standard, off the shelf range; along with a custom range which is tailor made to suit specific requirements and security compliance. imageHOLDERS patent pending design concept also means we are the only tablet kiosk manufacturer able to display ANY iPad or tablet device. This gives you the freedom to choose a tablet that fits specific requirements put in place by within your infrastructure.

The UEL Project imageHOLDERS have worked alongside a number of universities and public sector corporations to develop customised tablet enclosures, AV displays and slim clients to help engage students and drive recruitment. Our most recent project was commissioned by the University of East London (UEL) to design and manufacture a range of secure AV Displays and ruggedized iPad & touch screen Kiosks for use within the campus library. Here students could access online resources and data from a cloud based CMS. Security compliance was tailored around UEL’s specific requirements to ensure the kiosks were tamper proof and durable to withstand their high traffic environment with 24-hour access.

Digital Solutions for Recruitment & Events There are a variety of ways in which iHOLD Tablet Kiosks can be used as a practical and interactive tool that can save time and money whilst driving user engagement and promoting brand awareness. Data Collection One of the most popular uses for iHOLD Tablet Kiosks are as an interactive POS display at recruitment fairs and UCAS open days. Teamed with a data capture app, your university is able to gather far more information than ever before through student surveys. Interactive kiosks also portray a modern image and brand reinforcement, which can sway a prospective students choice towards your university rather than a competitor.

Data capture apps can be easily configured and branded to collect the required information. The data can then be instantly converted into any required format for use within internal databases and follow up marketing. A great example of this is Akkroo – a fast, accurate and smart data capture app that has been used in conjunction with iHOLD Tablet Kiosks at a number of universities, some of which include, UEL, City University London, Lancaster University and The University of Law.

Brand Recognition & University Reputation

Deploying a smart, branded iHOLD Kiosk is an opportunity to give potential students a great first impression of the university. These modern, interactive products utilise the latest in tablet and touch screen technology, which is both impressive and engaging. This alone can have a dramatic effect on the users choice as it reflects extremely well in terms of university reputation and reinforces the notion that technology and interaction is high on the list. Furthermore, a stunning, branded iHOLD kiosk can grab the attention of passing trade and engage them before your recruitment team has even spoken to them. Branding options range from logos, vinyl overlays, pop up banners and more.

Digital Prospectus Many universities now include a full prospectus online or in digital format. This allows prospective students to view course details at the touch of a button. Users can even email themselves useful informa tion or links to courses they could be interested in. This paves the way for a paperless and seamless marketing strategy, which is efficient and cost effective – why spend thousands of pounds printing bulky and expensive prospectus catalogues when they can be viewed online? Universities can also use tablets to play promotional videos or display slideshows / photo galleries to entice students
