The kiosk can be used for loan payments, down payments and insurance premium payments – with more enhancements in the works. It also functions as an ATM and is the first kiosk to be fully customized around each dealer’s accounting needs, weaving seamlessly into back-end bookkeeping.


Neighborhood Autos general manager Eddie Hale implemented at least one kiosk at each of his eight Texas locations. “Cash is extremely difficult to control. Even with the strong systems we had in place, it was a consistent frustration,” Hale said. “Now, all the cash is counted and boxed for us. We never even touch it, and an armored vehicle picks it up at the end of each day. We receive a report to reconcile with our statements, so our role is just bookkeeping now. Thanks to these kiosks, 100 percent of our cash management issues have been eliminated.”
