Powerful Kiosk Designs. Sophisticated Approach.

About Us

ZIVELO is a public computing technology company that offers self-service kiosk and digital signage solutions. Founded in 2008, ZIVELO has rapidly grown to become the leading self-service technology brand by offering a sleek and sophisticated product design and an intuitive user experience. ZIVELO solutions have been utilized across multiple industries including healthcare, retail, transportation and business administration, for clients ranging from the Fortune 100 to nearly every branch of the US Government.

ZIVELO is ranked on the Inc. 500|5000 list as one of the fastest growing companies in the U.S. and the third fastest growing computer hardware company. ZIVELO was recognized by Forbes, the Huffington Post, and Mashable for its business growth and its environmental sustainability initiatives.

A Heritage of Innovation

ZIVELO is an entrepreneurial growth enterprise that has always embodied the spirit of innovation and continuous improvement. With the ever-changing nature of the technology landscape, it can be difficult for businesses to keep up with the rapidly evolving demands of consumers for convenient options to interact with them. ZIVELO’s goal is to stay ahead of the curve rather than be limited by the way that B2B technology is “supposed to be.”  As a public computing pioneer that has retained its entrepreneurial approach, ZIVELO has always broken barriers and will continue to dedicate resources to doing so.

ZIVELO FOUNDATION

ZIVELO™ is committed to reversing our carbon footprint by planting 3 trees for every kiosk that we sell. We have also introduced one of the first solar-powered kiosks to North America.

MOTIVATED BY PURPOSE

Philanthropy is a core principle of ZIVELO, which is why we created the ZIVELO Foundation. The foundation supports relief efforts worldwide and is constantly looking for ways to support social, economic, and environmental growth both domestically and internationally.

DRIVEN BY SUSTAINABILITY

Our efforts include planting trees with each client order to offset the carbon footprint of our products, and to make more enjoyable public spaces. Additionally, we donate proceeds from our product sales to a variety of relief funds. Our contributions have supported local and national charities dedicated to mitigating long-term despair in economically disadvantaged communities, and have been contributed in support of disaster relief worldwide.

In addition, economically and socially disadvantaged communities are able to get significant discounts through the ZIVELO Foundation on products to support their missions. Some of the ZIVELO Foundation’s initiatives include:

  • Tree Planting to Offset Our Carbon Footprint
  • Rice Donation for Those in Need
  • Significant Product Discounts for Non-Profit Organizations
  • Contributing to United States and International Disaster Relief Efforts
  • Contributions to Doctors Without Borders
  • Donations to Hefer International
