IPEVO’s family of Perch stands have found themselves in a remarkable number of venues. But in the case of Tian Cai Refreshment Saloon — and yes, that’s the best name for a restaurant ever — Perch S found a home very close by our branch office in Taipei, in a place we visit all the time. And that makes this story a little more special.

Tian Cai is well-known for excellent Japanese cuisine such as sushi, sashimi and oden, which is a dish of boiled eggs, radish, konnyaku and fish cakes in a light broth. With its combination of good quality and affordability, the Refreshment Saloon has been a lunch-hour favorite of IPEVO employees for many years, and a favorite of the Taipei business community for more than 40 years. For the vast majority of those 40 years, Tian Cai’s menu was text-only. The restaurant’s reputation and great food had visitors coming back for more, but the owner knew he could take his restaurant into the 21st century for an even better presentation of his offerings.

After a cook took some impromptu iPhone images of some dishes, the owner knew that strong visuals of his cuisine was the way to go. But what was the best way to display signature dishes for newcomers in a fresh, exciting way? The owner tried a couple digital frames and some iPad cases and stands as part of a lobby display, but he wasn’t satisfied. These accessories weren’t complementing the overall vibe of the restaurant. They looked clunky and inorganic, like they didn’t belong.

A couple folks at IPEVO saw the owner’s need and introduced him to Perch S Desktop Stand. With its sleek lines and aluminum leg, THIS is a stand which can match the high style of an upscale restaurant. We like to think it’s every bit as elegant as the iPad itself. The Perch S was set on the host’s counter, and its dual-axis hinge allowed it to be oriented and angled just rightto catch customers’ eyes. Images of signature dishes were uploaded into a slideshow on the iPad. And the rest, as they say, is history. Tian Cai broke free from the text-only tedium and now features an ultramodern, eye-catching display which communicates the deliciousness of the dishes as well as the sophistication of the restaurant itself. What more could you ask for? We bet Perch S Desktop Stand could deliver a similar “wow” for your business!

Have you tried an interactive kiosk for your business? It’s a unique opportunity to showcase your products and services, share multimedia content, and get your visitors engaged and excited. All you need is an iPad and a stand. And we’ve got just the stands for you: the Perch Security Stand in S-Type (great for tabletops and desktops), M-Type (ideal for seated users), or L-Type (the perfect height for standing users).

What’s the Perch Security Stand? It’s a versatile stand for the iPad 3 or iPad 2 that’s designed with security in mind. We’ve taken our popular Perch Stand and packaged it with a special lockable holder. With two locks, the security holder ensures that your customers can’t take the iPad out of the stand or otherwise drop or damage the device. If your company could benefit from an interactive kiosk, but you need a way to keep it secure, the Perch Security Stand is the smart and affordable solution.

Let’s talk a little bit more about Perch’s features. First, Perch has a modern, streamlined look that’s every bit as style-conscious as Apple’s iPad. So, using the Perch will never fail to impress. Secondly, Perch’s dual-axis hinge means you can position the iPad in either landscape or portrait orientation, depending on your needs. Plus, you can adjust the viewing angle so it’s just right for your users.

As far as security, the lockable holder doesn’t just prevent the user from taking the device out. An optional home button lock prevents users from hitting the home button and exiting your video, slideshow, or app. Thus, you control their experience.

As another benefit, IPEVO is also offering a handy app called Showcase. This application allows you to fine-tune the user’s experience even more by limiting touchscreen interactions. If you want to restrict browsing to one or two pages, Showcase can help. If you want the iPad to automatically return to your Home page for the next user, Showcase can help. Find out more about Showcase in the Apple App Store.

What we’re trying to say is: Perch Security Stand and Showcase offer you a complete solution to transform your iPad into a cutting-edge, secure interactive kiosk for your business.

Here’s just a taste of how Perch Security Stand might function for you:

  1. Churches, galleries, restaurants, boutiques, hospitals, waiting rooms, trade shows, showrooms, reception desks, lobbies, salons, coffee shops, hotels, movie theaters… Whew, let me catch my breath! Basically, Perch Security Stand can be used in a LOT of settings.
  2. Share multimedia content about your products and services: demo videos, photo albums, promos, interactive tutorials. Anything’s possible.
  3. Give clients a sense of what’s possible with your product by offering apps which allow them to “build” or select choices — from cars to clothing to computers, creating what you’re about to buy is always fun.
  4. With something like the Square Card Reader, you can even use a kiosk to process transactions.
  5. Set up the kiosk as a true information center with maps, FAQs, directories, and similar content.
  6. A kiosk doesn’t have to be all business. Offer games or show movies to entertain guests or the children of your customers.
  7. Offer orientations, support, and training for your employees.
  8. Give clients a convenient way to check their email, the day’s itinerary, or the sports scores.
