An efficient marketing plan means good brand-positioning and effective customer engagement. The easiest way to spread brand awareness and increase customer engagement is by incorporating kiosks, self-service POS systems, digital signage and more. By embracing mobile and complementing applications, adoption of such plans have become quick and easy.

42Gears signature lockdown products for Android like SureLock, SureFox and SureVideo provide easy to use solutions which are loaded with features. These light weight applications can turn any Android device into kiosks, personalised POS systems or digital signage within few minutes.
