New Self Service Drivers

Some of the “next generation” self-service & kiosk resources are emerging and sites like selfservice.io are one way of broadening the palette.  Subverticals either in technology (e.g. thinclient.org and retailautomation.com) or in markets (e.g. Healthcare blog and also Telemedicine) are beginning to drive investments, people, budgets and the all important “buzz”. All of the new tablet and mobile-optimized services continue to expand self-service.
