Customized keys and keypads
Workflows can be optimized with different keypads. The most important commands and key combinations can be assigned to physical keys. In addition to standard keypads from Bloomberg and Thomson Reuters, customized keypads with made-to-order keys (size, position, color and labeling) are also available.
A quick ejection mechanism releases the keyboard inlay from the housing unit so that users who share desks can still work on their own personal keyboards. Hygienic working conditions are thus guaranteed. The keyboard inlay is available for different countries and languages.
