Calgary, Alberta Canada (PressExposure) October 03, 2007 -- When Kermit the Frog sang, âIt's not easy being green,â little did he know that âgoing greenâ while making some âgreenâ would be easy thanks to Userful. ([http://kiosks.userful.com]).
Userful Corporation ([http://www.userful.com]), the worldwide leader in public computing, has a solution for hotels wanting to offer public internet access without the hassles. Its pay-per-use Internet Kiosks and Web Cafes are a turnkey, environmentally responsible, and headache-free solution for hotels, restaurants and other venues that see large numbers of visitors or tourists.
There's no IT expertise needed, no worries about viruses or updates, and it offers industry leading revenue margins. A single kiosk in use just 90 minutes a day can make $2500 a year. Multiply the kiosks and multiply the profits: an environmentally friendly pod of 10 kiosks running off a single PC in use just 90 minutes a day could make $25,000 per year.
âDiscoverStation is a great way to make moneyâ says Jude Joseph, President & CEO of Calgary-based Netsys Computers Inc. âIt has been a fantastically successful product for us and now accounts for more than 85% of our revenue.â
âIt reduced our time spent administering the public computers by 95%,â adds Dr Rebecca Brown, Coordinator of Public Services, City of Takoma Park, MD.
You simply install DiscoverStation, set pricing and policies through the net-based customization panel, sell prepaid cards and you're ready to go. The over 40 software applications in over 50 languages are included for free.
Userful's revolutionary software, DiscoverStation is quickly becoming the standard for green computing worldwide. DiscoverStation leverages the unused computing power of modern PCs to create an environmentally efficient computing option. Attaching up to 10 monitors, mice and keyboards to a single computer reduces CO2 emissions by up to 15 tons per year per system and reduces electronic waste by up to 80%. Userful recently stated that in the last year their software has saved over 13,250 tons of CO2 emissions, the equivalent of taking 2,300 cars off the road.

âMillions of venues have heavy visitor and tourist traffic, yet few of them have the IT expertise and capital outlay required to set up and run an Internet kiosk. Userful is now giving away the software and support required to setup and run an Internet kiosk in your location in exchange for a percentage of the revenue," says Tim Griffin, President of Userful Corporation.
