Company description: MicroTouch Systems Inc. is the world's leading manufacturer of touchscreens and related software. Its touchscreen products incorporate the two most popular touch technologies, analog capacitive and resistive membrane, and are used in a wide range of applications including: POS cash registers, multimedia kiosks, industrial and medical apparatus, financial systems, computer-based training equipment, gaming machines and many other computer-based systems used by the public. MicroTouch also leads the industry in innovative touch solutions with products including: TouchPen, the world's first touch and pen-sensitive digitizer used for signature capture, POS, medical imaging and pen-computing; ThruGlass, a touchscreen that can sense a touch through 2-inch glass allowing the placement of kiosks behind store windows for 24-hour access; TouchMate, a pressure-sensitive pad that makes any monitor placed on it touch sensitive; and Prospector, the world's first public browser software that allows World Wide Web sites to be easily navigated with a touchscreen.

In 1995 MicroTouch acquired Factura Kiosks, the largest kiosk manufacturer in the U.S. Factura has produced an estimated 30 percent of the kiosks installed in the U.S., for customers including IBM, Digital, Unisys, Kraft General Foods, JC Penney and PepsiCo.
