Structured Cabling Services

National Retailer
Kiosk & PC for Licensing and Permit Registrations

When a National Retailer needed to add in store ordering capacity and permitting registrations they decided to automate through and provide additional terminals for sales and management staff.  Realizing that the location provided no data access and no power receptacle the project would require multiple trades to add Network Access and 120 VAC in support of a printer, computer terminal and Kiosk.
