Marijuana Kiosk & Cannabis

As marijuana legalization continues to spread, the marijuana kiosk is helping to simplify and secure the sales process.

By Richard Slawsky contributor

marijuana kioskJust two years into the state’s experiment in the legalization of marijuana for recreational use, Colorado businesses are on track see more than $1.3 billion in revenue from the sale of weed and related products. That’s a whopping 30 percent higher than the $1 billion those businesses took in last year.

Those results are similar to what’s being seen in Washington, the second state to go 420-friendly. Washington reached the $1 billion mark in July 2016, just 12 months after the first legal sale of recreational pot.

And that growth is sure to continue, especially as more and more states hop aboard the cannabis train.

But as with any business, a growing customer base brings with it an opportunity to serve those customers with technology. Cannabis and kiosks are proving to be a perfect match.

Growing like a weed

With the results of November’s election, the use of both recreational and medicinal marijuana has been entirely legalized in eight states, with medical marijuana legal in 28 states.

While the approach of the incoming administration in regards to legalized marijuana remains to be seen, it’s likely that the movement has passed the point of no return.

Still, there are some sticky issues associated with the sale of marijuana. First and foremost is that despite it being legal at the state level, federal law still considers marijuana to be a Schedule 1 drug, putting it on the same level with heroin, LSD and ecstasy.

Because federal law prohibits financial institutions from processing payments from the sale of a Schedule 1 drug, for the most part the cannabis industry is an all-cash affair. Credit and debit card transactions just aren’t allowed.

Unfortunately, conducting business on an all-cash basis is fraught with risk. First and foremost is that having large amounts of cash on the premises makes a marijuana business a prime target for a robbery.

In June 2016, for example, a security guard at a suburban Denver dispensary was shot and killed during a robbery attempt. The killing of the guard, former Marine Travis Mason, was the first known on-the-job death at a licensed marijuana business in Colorado.

The same month, a medical marijuana dispensary owner in the Los Angeles area survived a shootout with two would-be robbers wearing masks and armored vests. The owner escaped unharmed, although the robbers were wounded when the owner fired his own weapon.

In addition to the outside threat, dispensary owners also face the potential of internal theft. Despite the amount of money flowing into the pot industry, dispensary workers start at or near the minimum wage. Handling thousands of dollars a day while taking home $10-12 an hour is likely to prove to be an overwhelming temptation for some seeking to supplement their income.

And that’s where the kiosk industry can help.

Fresno, Calif.-based Cannabis Cash Solutions, for example, is providing cash-handling kiosks for marijuana dispensaries that eliminate the need for employees to handle money. In addition, the devices store the cash in a secure vault until pickup by a manager or an armored car service

“What we’re doing with the kiosks is taking the money straight from the customer’s hands and putting it right into the vaults in our kiosks,” said Cannabis Cash Solutions CEO Andrew Savala. “The marijuana business doesn’t touch the cash at all.”

With Cannabis Cash Solutions kiosks, customers come up to the dispensary counter and interact with the dispensary’s “budtender,” who explains the different product choices available. Once the customer has made their choice the budtender directs them to the counter-mounted kiosk, where they insert their cash payment into a bill acceptor and receive their change. The kiosk recycles the cash inserted for use as change, minimizing the need for replenishing the change fund.

“Customers are still able to have that one-one-one interaction with the budtender,” Savala said. “The budtender can still spend as much time with them as they need answering the customer’s questions, they just don’t handle the cash.”

“It seems to be quite an up-and-coming market,” said Bassam Estaitieh, director of business development – acquisitions with CPI.

[Editor note – A total of 3.6 million vending machines will be online by 2020. CPI is the leader. Reference.]

And Denver-based ordering and payment platform provider Jane LLC has deployed its kiosks in Oregon, Nevada and Colorado, with plans to expand to California, Alaska and several other states. With Jane’s kiosks, customers can make their choice from a list of products displayed on the device’s touchscreen and pay at the kiosk. The customer then takes the receipt to the pickup counter to receive their purchase.

“We have been received with open arms in some locations, where others shut the door, priding themselves on the theory of ‘one-on-one customer experience, that’s our specialty and we don’t want to lose that.’,” said Karla Guarino, VP of Marketing/Operations with Jane LLC. “Every state has different rules and regulations which all have to be worked through. It’s an ongoing process, but an exciting one!”

Jane also offers a mobile app for iOS and Android devices. With the app, customers place an order via their mobile device and enter their order number at the kiosks when they arrive at the dispensary. Those customers are also issued a receipt to be taken to the counter.

Jane’s devices also include EMV compliant card readers that are ready to accept transactions in anticipation of the eventual legalization of credit and debit card transactions for marijuana.

“We have been working very closely with our banking partner to ensure our processes are 100% compliant and ready to accept transactions at any time,” Guarino said.

On the horizon

San Francisco-based cannabis investor network The ArcView Group predicts legal sales to top $22.8 billion by 2020, meaning the opportunities for kiosk deployments are only going to continue to expand, both in the United States and around the world. In addition, the expected growth is driving the development of new solutions for the industry.

Several companies have introduced kiosks that actually dispense marijuana, verifying customers via biometrics. Most of those efforts have struggled, though.

Tempe, Ariz.-based American Green recalled all of its Zazzz cannabis vending machines in December 2015 in response to feedback from dispensary vendors and customers, and is retooling its automated vending program.

And Los Angeles-based vending kiosk provider Medbox rebranded itself as Notis Global in February 2016, shifting its focus to cultivation, production and consulting.

Still, the technology that would be required to dispense packages of marijuana is already being used to dispense other products. There may come a time when marijuana vending kiosks are as commonplace as those renting DVDs.

“I was reading an article recently about a company deploying kiosks to dispense packages of tea,” Estaitieh said. “If a kiosk can dispense tea it could easily dispense marijuana.”

The current struggle for acceptance of those types of kiosks may be due to the fact that they have been primarily located in dispensaries. If a customer is already in a dispensary, they may be inclined to simply go to the counter and talk with a bud tender.

Depending on traffic, though, there may be a day when customers will prefer to use a kiosk for convenience. And as medical marijuana becomes more accepted around the country, pharmacies may look at those types of kiosks as a way to compete with dispensaries.

There also may be opportunities for marijuana-dispensing kiosks outside the United States as other countries seek to cash in on changing attitudes. Jamaica, for example, is in talks on a plan to install cannabis kiosks at airports and seaports as part of a plan to boost government revenues.

Jamaica decriminalized the possession of small amounts of marijuana in 2015 and has legalized the use of medical marijuana, part of a plan to market the Caribbean nation as a destination for “wellness tourism” and the accompanying flow of cash.

“The thought is that if you are coming out of the airport, there is a kiosk that you can go to,” Cannabis Licensing Authority (CLA) Chairman Hyacinth Lightbourne told the Jamaican publication The Gleaner.

“It would primarily be for people who have a prescription and, in effect, you’re doing it for medicinal purposes with a permit from the Ministry of Health,” Lightbourne said. “If they don’t have a prescription, then they can do what we call ‘self-declare,’ and this will allow them [to purchase] two ounces while they are here.”

How the payments industry came to accept marijuana – from Payments Source. Excerpt:

Despite this progress, most financial services providers still see compliance as a hurdle. Only about 300 of the more than 11,000 banks currently operating in the U.S. work with legal pot vendors.

“Paradoxically, most of the institutions nationwide that offer business to marijuana suppliers are small and very unhealthy; most are the ones desperate for income,” said Lamine Zarrad, founder and CEO of Tokken, a Denver-based blockchain startup.

Tokken sees the marijuana industry’s situation as comparable to other industries, and thus it can apply solutions that other markets use. Tokken uses bitcoin blockchain to peg marijuana transaction information to its blockchain so that banks and regulators have an immutable, time-stamped record. Information about each transaction is hashed and input on the bitcoin blockchain. In this way consumers, businesses, banks, regulators and law enforcement agencies can view the system and ensure there’s no tampering, Zarrad said.

Kiosks Prove to be a Sure Bet for Casinos

Casino operators are gambling that new kiosk functions will help them provide top-notch customer service to help them cater to existing customers and win new ones.

By Richard Slawsky, Contributor

Years ago, casino bosses were able to recognize their guests by sight, providing complementary rooms and other perks to high rollers to keep them playing.

Today, keeping track of customers’ playing habits and providing those comps by sight is impossible. In addition, most casinos depend far more on the retirees playing slots in the afternoons and on the weekends for their bread and butter than they do the whales dropping a few grand at the blackjack tables.

And with gaming revenue for US casino operators topping $183.8 billion in 2015, up 56 percent from $117.6 billion in 2010, keeping those core customers happy is of prime importance. Kiosk technology is helping to accomplish that task.

Beyond the slot club

These days, catering to a casino’s customers is as much a science as it is an art form.

Kiosks in the Casino

  • Self-service technology benefits both the player and the house

For the player

  • Look up points and “comps”
  • Enter daily promotions and giveaways
  • Check promotions and print coupons
  • Easily locate favorite machines
  • Easily locate restaurants, shops and other property amenities

For the house

  • Enroll new loyalty members
  • Print customized player’s club loyalty cards
  • Eliminate lines at customer service
  • Deploy manpower to more complicated tasks
  • Check-in/check-out at resort hotel
  • Print boarding basses for departing guests

When casinos made the transition from mechanical games to digital ones in the 1980s and 1990s, it opened to door to technology that helped them spot their most profitable patrons. Loyalty programs, originally called “slot clubs”, began appearing in many of the larger casinos. Customers would sign up for player cards, and in return for loyalty to a particular casino they would receive reduced-rate or complementary rooms, access to special events, free meals and more. Players would insert their cards into a slot machine or other gaming device, with their level of rewards dependent on their overall playing time (or money wagered).

The loyalty cards provided a flood of analytics for casino operators, allowing them to track the playing habits of individual patrons and reward them accordingly, as well as letting them see which games were the most popular and kept patrons playing the longest.

And because kiosk technology had long been a feature of casinos in the form of ATMs, it was only a small step to adapt the technology to loyalty cards, allowing a player to swipe their card to see what rewards they had earned.

“Certainly, I think part of the idea is to improve customer service,” said David McCracken, CEO of York, Pa.-based kiosk software provider Livewire Digital.

“The technology has allowed casinos to reduce the number of people lined up at a customer service desk,” McCracken said. “It’s good for the customer but it’s also good for the casino, by getting those customers out of the lines and back to the tables.”

Today, it’s not uncommon the see players swipe their card at a loyalty kiosk, only to return to the gaming floor to play enough to reach the next level of rewards.

“There are many days when casino properties are getting busloads of people, and they can get pretty crowded,” McCracken said. “The self-service capabilities of kiosk technology have helped casinos reduce the manpower needed to provide a lot of the basic functions to take care of their guests, while improving customer service at the same time.”

Building on success

As the capabilities of kiosk technology have grown over the years, so have the services offered by those devices.

Livewire, for example, has worked with Foxwoods Resort Casino in Ledyard, Conn., for more than 10 years. Foxwoods is the largest casino in the world with more than 340,000 sq ft of gaming space serving more than 40,000 guests per day. The resort also features a hotel with 1,416 rooms and a two story arcade for children and teens.

Because Foxwoods’ existing kiosks were becoming dated and offered limited functionality, in 2007 management tapped Livewire to update their machines to a more modern design while adding new functionality for members of the casino’s popular Wampum Rewards Program. Instead of having patrons wait in line at a customer service desk to do things such as redeem points for promotional rewards, Foxwoods wanted to make those services available at the kiosk.

Livewire ultimately developed a software solution that integrated the Wampum Rewards Program with Foxwoods’ Casino Management System and Slot Data System. In addition to being able to swipe their loyalty cards to view point balances, patrons can enter sweepstakes, sign up for events and obtain personalized rewards in the form of coupons and bonus slot tickets.

Digital signage mounted on the kiosks above the touch screen interfaces display advertising and other casino information such as drawing winners and jackpot payouts. Livewire has more than 80 kiosks deployed around the Foxwoods property.

Expanding functionality

The features being incorporated into kiosks at the casino are being expanded on a regular basis. New functions include wayfinding, food and drink ordering and directing guests to their favorite gaming machines.

“I’m also seeing a little bit of interest in functions such as player registration, where people can register for slots tournaments and things like that,” said Frank Olea, CEO of Cerritas, Calif.-based Olea Kiosks Inc.

Olea Kiosks is a leading manufacturer of loyalty program kiosks for the gaming industry. The company also serves sectors including higher education, government, human resources, retail and hospitality.

“We’ve seen some new card printers come out that offer the ability for kiosks to hold multiple types of cards and have the ability to print a guest’s name on them,” Olea said. “That allows the casino to store different levels of player loyalty cards and then print on those, so the guest doesn’t have to go to customer service to get a new card.”

The appearance of the devices is changing as well.

“Look and feel is changing in the gaming world,” said Liz Messano, sales manager with Las Vegas-based SlabbKiosks. Along with casinos, SlabbKiosks’ customers include government organizations, universities, financial institutions and healthcare providers.

“Big and clunky is becoming a thing of the past, so casinos and such are looking to the kiosk industry to help them with this transition,”  Messano said.

And because many casinos are attached to hotels, companies are incorporating kiosk functions geared to guests spending their vacations on the property.

“At MGM Resorts, kiosks help us to enhance our service to guests,” said Mary Hynes, director of corporate communications with Las Vegas-based MGM Resorts International. “At our ARIA and Monte Carlo resorts in Las Vegas, we plan later this year to begin offering check-in and check-out at kiosks as an option for our guests. We also offer Internet kiosks where guests may print their boarding passes.”

Aria casino kiosk

The ARIA Resort & Casino and the Monte Carlo are just two of the 14 properties MGM operates in Las Vegas. The company also operates resorts in Mississippi and Michigan, and holds interests in four other properties in Nevada, Illinois and Macau, China.

 

So with the gaming industry becoming increasingly competitive even as it grows and properties becoming ever more creative in their efforts to attract new patrons, the race is on to develop new self-service capabilities that can be incorporated into the kiosk. The capability of the technology is limited only by the imagination of the people developing those capabilities.

“It’s a mature technology but we get requests all the time for new functions,” Olea said. “It’s probably time that we start looking at making the kiosk do things beyond what they already do. You’ve got the machine and you’ve got a captive audience but it’s time to start expanding their use.”
