Perspective Unattended Self-Service Kiosks
July — Kiosk manufacturer news – Samsung announced that they are selling a kiosk now. We knew they sold menu boards and digital menus, and digital signage for that matter. We have two writeups. One here on Kiosk Industry and the other on LinkedIn with a bit more speculation. Interesting decisions by Samsung.
They opted for a non-CAT credit card terminal. That can work for gorilla accounts like Home Depot or Mcdonald’s but that’s it. They call it “semi-attended” which doesn’t exist as a PCI class. An oldie goldie antibacterial coating zinc pyrithione is being used. You may remember from TV commercials for shampoo.
It certainly makes sense to expand your offering and portfolio to customers when they are considering huge spends for 75″ UHD monitors every 6 feet (and in the drive-thru lane). Maybe they will soon offer curbside and lockers. Finally, we are a little concerned that they have named these kiosks the KMA Series. For the record, KMA has absolutely nothing to do with these units.
