Airlines and airports use Ink Touch in different ways. They use it to gain independence from incumbent industry providers. They also use Ink Touch to reduce their technology footprint while lowering overall costs.
Create a brand new high-capacity handling channel
Enable mobile DCS and use Ink Touch to augment your operation. Or go fully mobile to avoid fixed infrastructure altogether.
Technology that is a generation beyond PCs
Many years ago, Ink recognised that smartphones and tablets had enough computing power to supplant Windows desktops.
As far back as 2011, we knew how important mobile computing would be.
Today, we continue to lead the way in building out the most powerful mobile passenger handling suite.
Do full check-in inside or outside the airport
Check-in anywhere – curbside, in the car park, at the train station. And sell wherever you need to.
Print IATA-compliant bag tags and boarding passes without the need for desks, power supplies or connectivity.
Apple iOS and Google Android; not embedded Web pages
We have created native Apps that deliver the highest level of performance.
Our expert developers harness all of the device’s power and have access to all of its components.
Ink Touch consistently exceeds the stability and capability of apps run on platform-agnostic rapid development tools and packaged web pages.

Airports finally have real choice
Choosing between solutions that are all alike is not choice. It is dogma.
Many other industries have embraced mobile computing because of its universal benefits such as efficiency, ease of use and lower technology costs.
Ink has always been enthusiastic about the ability of mobile computing to change passenger handling.
We strike a chord with aviation strategists who want those benefits and to transition from the fixed PCs that other providers insist they need.
- Serve passengers who cannot or will not use self-service
- Bring service to passengers instead of having them queue for it
- Process passengers in hotels, exhibitions, train stations, car parks
- Board passengers where you need to; not just where fixed PCs are
- Collect excess bags fees without sending passengers to Sales desks.
Ink Touch goes far beyond basic queue busting
While other solutions are capable of simple processes like printing boarding passes, Ink Touch does every part of the acceptance process, including complex actions.
Apart from replacing the desks that passengers queue for, its power and feature-completeness make it the best queue buster around.
Earn the maximum revenue from your baggage policy
More passengers bring increasing amounts of bags directly to the gate than ever before. At the same time, the lack of baggage equipment at gates compounds the difficulty of enforcing airlines’ policies.
Use Ink Touch to manage cabin baggage, tags and collecting payments for extra or oversized bags.
Print gate tags with a single scan. Take payments with a single action.
“[with] agents out on the floor to allow more interaction with the passengers, the service delivered by these agents was noticeably better. Even passengers were commenting how much they liked it.”

Every design decision, line of text, user interface element and colour choice helps guide agents. So with minimal training, and in some cases, no training, agents become productive. More than once, they’ve said that they’ve “fallen in love” with the system.
Many agree that the product is the easiest check-in system that they’ve ever used; even users that lack confidence using a smartphone.
Nothing is easier or faster to deploy than Ink Touch.
