As wireless kiosks, digital signs, EV charging stations, and other customer self-serve devices become thinner and smaller the need for a tiny cellular router becomes greater.

Cellular routers have come a long way and this unit is one of the smallest and best I think.

June 15, 2016 – YORK, PA.   BFit Gyms isn’t your everyday run-of- the-mill fitness center. Their members ‘refuse to be ordinary’, and enjoy the unique and innovative Fit Pass that allows family and friends to share the same pass. Stressing its ‘cool factor’, BFit has implemented easy-to- use kiosks that provide its tech-savvy self-service- minded members with access to membership purchase and management features at all hours of the day, any day of the week.

BFit saw an opportunity to be a more neighborhood friendly boutique type of gym and to capitalize on the personal experience, as opposed to the large institutionalized competition. BFit offers members a wide array of options when it comes to fitness, from Group Cycling and Group Fitness sessions with virtual, live or on-demand classes. One of BFit’s operational goals is to maintain low overhead of its gyms by reducing the number of personal attendants and improve the member’s journey. To accomplish this goal, BFit called on Livewire Digital, and its wealth of experience in transactional self-service, to provide self-service kiosks. From the point of sign up, to entering the gym and to registering for classes, BFit has allowed the user to get straight to the business of using the gym.

The self-service kiosks allowed BFit to map out the member’s journey in an interactive and intuitive way, from membership sign up at the gym or online to registering for classes or paying account balance. Prospective members have the ability to purchase memberships on-line at BFitGyms.com, a web site developed by Livewire and integrated with BFit’s membership database hosted by Motionsoft, a leading provider of fitness club management services. New members continue their journey at the club by picking up their RFID membership card via one of the new kiosks located at the club’s entrance.

“It’s great to see the use of omni-channel self-service technology and contactless access in the fitness environment” said David McCracken, Livewire Digital’s President and CEO. “This particular solution allows BFit to enrich the fitness experience while reducing operational costs that get passed on to members as savings. Wow, that’s cool.”

Excerpt

Around 200 kiosks, without sensors, have been installed in New York City by LinkNYC. LinkNYC is a consortium comprised of Intersection and Sidewalk Labs.

Each 9.5-foot-high Link kiosk offers a range of free services, including U.S. phone calls, gigabit Wi-Fi access, USB charging ports and transport directions. The kiosks have a keypad, a touchscreen tablet for browsing, a dedicated 911 button for emergencies and are ADA compliant. Sidewalk’s documents quote market research that found 90 percent of New Yorkers believe the kiosks are a “positive initiative for the city.”

But this is only the start of what Sidewalk Labs has planned. Sidewalk offered the Columbus, Ohio, winner of the Smart City Challenge up to 100 kiosks in four of its neighborhoods. “Each Kiosk,” promises Sidewalk, “includes data analytics [that would allow Columbus to] better understand the urban environment via environmental sensors and machine learning algorithms that integrate numerous data sources.”
