Excerpt #1 — NRF Show

NRF Kiosk and NRF Digital Signage Solutions 2022

The Kiosk Manufacturer Association has been exhibiting at NRF in NY since 2017. It is the singular retail event of the year (despite the weather in NY). This year we are in booth 1606. That faces the entrance on the lower level.

Thanks to our readers PopID is a finalist for the NRF Award for Best Payment Innovation.  We thank all of our readers for voting. Saturday at the Gosham is the awards dinner.

We will be showcasing accessibility in counter and floor-standing models for the customer-operated POS space. See the same technology being used by McDonald’s. If you would like to arrange contact or meeting send an email to craig@catareno.com or you can call me on my Pixel4 at 720-324-1837.

For demonstrations in the booth we have a total of 9 different companies represented. If you would like to arrange a demo at the show or contact a company prior you can email craig@catareno.com or you call our mobile at 720-324-1837

Excerpt #1 — From Market Research 2022

Predicting 2022 trends begins with reviewing 2021 predictions. How many were right and how many were wrong?

The consensus from many respected organizations comes down to one word:  contactless.  We think 2022 will be a breakout year for QR codes and other contactless tokens (facial, biometric, SMS) ourselves.  Some new re-invigorated drivers include social networks like TikTok and their videos. How POS and CMS systems can communicate effectively with customers and generate loyalty. Gift cards, giveaways and incentives will abound.

Tech  Angles

  • IP Cameras now come with AI raising the intelligence and programmability of those cameras and mitigating the usual USB hooked to a PC solution
  • Livestreaming (the pandemic trained us on that).
  • Story on Chick-Fil-A and virtual order takers in the drive-thru (TikTok video) — link

This is the first iteration post and we will be adding more in the coming days.
