P&O Ferries is introducing interactive kiosks in its offices in various ports as part of a drive to limit the firm's internal digital divide. The user-friendly kiosks, developed by NetShift and Fujitsu Inc., will enable employees who normally do not have desktop PCs the chance to access the corporate intranet, relevant websites and make use of employee self-service applications. “The kiosks bring real benefits to large numbers of employees who would otherwise miss out on the developments we've been making in our Intranet and Internet applications,” claims P&O Ferries' IT director Nigel Powis.
