Market Size and Statistics

There are many “datamart” and data research firms looking to snag your dollar.  Problem for them is that they do not have a sound understanding of the market. They might count ATMs for example.  If resellers like Diebold sell kiosks from Pyramid to McDonalds are those “estimates” going to double up?One of the more pervasive report groups recently released their October 2023 “Kiosk Market Report”.  There is a lot of doublecounting but marketing people love the biggest numbers. Can’t blame them. Feel free to click and get an even “bigger” picture.

Benefits of self-service machines

Self-service is becoming increasingly popular in a variety of industries, from retail and hospitality to banking and healthcare. These terminals offer a number of benefits for both businesses and customers.

Benefits for businesses:

  • Reduced labor costs: Self-service automation automates many tasks that are currently performed by employees, such as checking in customers, taking orders, and processing payments. This can free up employees to focus on other tasks, such as providing customer service and restocking shelves.
  • Increased sales: Self-service machines help businesses increase sales by making it easier for customers to shop and checkout. For example, self-checkout in retail stores allow customers to checkout quickly and without having to wait in line.
  • Improved customer satisfaction: Self-service terminals can help businesses to improve customer satisfaction by giving customers more control over their shopping experience. For example, self-order in restaurants allow customers to customize their orders and pay at their own pace.

Benefits for customers:

  • Convenience: Self-service terminals are convenient for customers because they allow them to complete tasks on their own time and without having to wait in line. For example, self-service ATMs allow customers to withdraw cash and check their account balances 24/7.
  • Control: Self-service terminals give customers control over their shopping experience. For example, self-service in grocery stores allow customers to scan their own items and pay at their own pace.
  • Accuracy: Self-service terminals can help to reduce errors. For example, self-checkout can accurately scan items and calculate totals.

Overall, self-service terminals offer a number of benefits for both businesses and customers. They can help businesses to reduce costs, increase sales, and improve customer satisfaction. They can also provide customers with convenience, control, and accuracy.

Here are some additional benefits of self-service terminals:

  • Accessibility: Self-service terminals can be made accessible to people with disabilities, such as by providing wheelchair-accessible kiosks and kiosks with Braille or audio instructions.
  • Customization: Self-service terminals can be customized to meet the specific needs of different businesses and industries. For example, self-service kiosks in airports can be used to check in passengers, print boarding passes, and check baggage.
  • Flexibility: Self-service terminals can be used to offer a variety of services. For example, self-service kiosks in libraries can be used to check out books, renew materials, and pay fines.

Self-service terminals are a valuable tool for businesses of all sizes. They can help businesses to improve their efficiency, profitability, and customer satisfaction.
