“The shift towards a self-service economy has rapidly progressed in the last five years with 40 percent of consumers reporting a preference towards self-service to human contact for their future interactions with companies,” said Connell Smith, vice president distributed issuance, supplies and secure technology products for Entrust Datacard. “Consumers now encounter self-service options in every aspect of their lives, from self-checkout at grocery stores and retailers, to self-check-in at airports and transportation hubs – and the kiosk-optimized CE870 system brings that same self-service convenience to consumers in the financial, government and healthcare space.”
