Press Release – Kiosk Manufacturer Association (KMA) Announces New Accessibility Committee Chairpersons

From PRNewswire March 2020

WESTMINSTER, Colo.March 4, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — The Kiosk Manufacturer Association aka KMA announces our new ADA and Accessibility Chairpersons.  Serving as co-chairpersons for our committee is Randy Amundson of Frank Mayer and Associates, Inc. and Mr. Peter Jarvis of Storm Interface.  Randy is one of our founding chairpersons and is continuing in his support of KMA and ADA. Peter is a charter sponsor of the Accessibility Committee and now helps lead the way for the KMA.

From Randy Amundson, “Peter Jarvis and I continue to work closely in finalizing the Kiosk Accessibility Code of Practice (CoP). We feel that the CoP will be a useful tool that kiosk manufacturers and their clients can use to ensure that their kiosks are accessible to the widest population of people with some form of disability possible. Peter and I are also working on developing an independent standard that can be used by nationally recognized testing labs in order to certify a kiosk as being ADA compliant”.

Peter Jarvis adds, “First, let me thank the committee’s previous Co-Chair Laura Miller for her work in raising awareness of accessibility issues within the kiosk industry. Laura continues to make an outstanding contribution to the work of the KMA Accessibility Committee but has now stepped into a role dedicated to kiosk accessibility at Vispero. Her commitment, to ensure equality in access to information, services and products, continues to influence the committee’s objectives. As the new Co-Chair (serving the KMA’s European members) I hope to continue the initiatives of the committee and look forward to working with the committee’s US resident Chairperson Randy Amundson.”

We very much thank Laura Boniello Miller with Vispero our founding co-chairperson for her contributions, support and effort over the last two years.

Visit with the KMA at the upcoming CSUN conference as well as at MURTEC. In May we will be exhibiting at the National Restaurant Show.

Original article – pre-show

We’re pleased to announce that KMA will be exhibiting at the BigShow in NY in January 2019. Booth 1725 on the main floor.

We will have example kiosks (one of them courtesy of Olea Kiosks) and it will be running  application by Appetize.

Get a firsthand look at Appetize’s modern, enterprise point of sale software on Olea’s Austin countertop self-service kiosk at NRF! With the Kiosk Manufacturer Association, we’re bringing cutting-edge self-service technology to the retail industry. Make sure to swing by Booth #1725 to meet the team and get a demo of the product!

A second tablet display will be debuting a new retail application that has recently been deployed by FAO Schwartz.

As part of NRF we will be recruiting participants for our Retail Advisory Council.  Simply put we are looking for companies which have an interest in self-service in general and also accessibility and may or may not have some input for us.  This type of broad input and review is modeled on ANSI standards for process. We hope to see you there.

For more information on Retail Kiosks in general please visit our Retail Market page. Included is recent data by Frost & Sullivan on “Revenue and Unit Shipment Forecast Discussion by Vertical”.  Retail is the largest vertical market for self-service kiosks to summarize.

At The Booth! Nanonation’s newest application makes for a seamless car buying experience – for kids, that is! F.A.O. Schwarz, an iconic toy store, has kiosk-like stations equipped with iPads with an engaging user experience that allows guests to build their own model car. From choosing the body, paint, wheels, and accessories, to the accompanied auto body shop sound effects, the interactive experience is the first part of a two-stage process. In stage two the guest works with the team in the F.A.O. garage to put together the model car they just designed. The collaboration between Nanonation and F.A.O. Schwarz is experience retail at its best.
