    NeoProducts & beyondblue Round Australia Roadshow

    An amazing accomplishment !

    After 50,000 kilometres and 500 events in 350 towns, the ambitious 16 month beyondblue roadshow has ended. It has brought inspiration and education about coping with depression to tens of thousands of people in remote towns and communities throughout Australia.

    And NeoProducts' touchscreen technology was there on the journey

    In early 2014, NeoProducts donated touchscreen technology to the roadshow, to enable beyondblue to display a number of interactive videos specifically to allow people to share their personal experiences.

    Neo’s touchscreen technology worked faultlessly throughout the journey. At each stop, a touchscreen panel was literally magnetised to the outside of the bus, so that visitors could interactively access programme information.

    Throughout the 16 months and the climate extremes of Australia, the touchscreen never missed a beat.

    Fittingly, the last town on the 16 month road trip was Healesville, where an event was organised by Neo’s General Manager – Lindsay Frost. With the Gold Logie winning actor John Wood as MC - beyondblue and the Lions Club of Healesville shouted the town a “night out”. The theme was “Connections Matter “, focusing on the importance for mental health of maintaining connections with your friends and your community.

    NeoProducts is proud to have been associated with such a worthwhile project.

    Community Centre kiosk becomes local hub


    Neo is proud to be part of a new Department of Justice kiosk initiative in Melbourne's western suburbs.

    Maribyrnong City Council is providing an interactive kiosk with large buttons, simple navigation and a built-in printer at the Braybrook Community Centre.  It can provide convenient easy access to various services such as rental rights, legal assistance, paying fines and registering births, deaths and marriages.

    We often assume that everyone is online but research shows that many Victorians still don't have a home internet connection or access to a printer.

    Another advantage is the provision of a Vietnamese-language menu which will assist the large local Vietnamese speaking community.

    The new Braybrook Community Centre will become a 'hub' of the local community, and the new interactive digital kiosk will help to provide convenient access to information and services from the department.

    Kiosks could help Newsagencies to increase profit by $160 million

    NeoProducts Kiosks are being used as part of a trial run by HUBBED in newsagencies in NSW and QLD.  As explained in The Australian Financial Review article these kiosks “will allow customers to send parcels, pay bills, order books and offer a host of other services.”


    Sending parcels is thought will contribute to the biggest turnover and HUBBED are quoted as saying that “a single newsagent could earn $115 in revenue a day from the device, which would return them a total profit of $106 million.”

    The kiosks are aimed at breathing life into the newsagency industry and keeping them competitive within the market.  There is already talk of expanding the use of the kiosk in the future to include “ticket sales, greetings cards, sports betting and movie downloads”.  The kiosks give newsagencies the ability to offer a range of products to their customers which are in demand, but were previously out of reach in such setting.
