Interactive Information Systems
Most automated information systems manipulate data and present information for a specific purpose. We're all familiar with accounting packages, word processors, spreadsheets, and custom applications ranging from manufacturing operations to communications and beyond.
Interactive information systems put the user directly into the flow of the system. Navigation is the result of user interaction - nothing happens unless the user requests it. A series of high-impact "attract screens" is used to grab the user's attention.

Since each user can choose a unique course of navigation, interactive systems are non-linear (unlike a video or tape recording that runs from start to finish) and dynamic (unlike a billboard or magazine ad).

FTI can provide system design, development, creative services, hardware procurement and integration, installation, and implementation support, as well as content management.
