Cost Saving Benefits of an Interactive Kiosk

Reduce transaction costs with a kiosk.

Don’t let the name fool you. You can use an interactive kiosk to reduce transaction costs inside your store as well as outside. Every time you can assist a customer or close a sale faster, your transaction costs go down. A kiosk enables customers to complete transactions entirely on their own, significantly reducing your cost per sale.

A kiosk is “open” 24 hours a day, every day. You can do business with people even when your store is closed, or facilitate transactions for customers who are on the go and don’t have time to come in and browse.

You can post your kiosk right outside your door, or you can place it in another high-traffic section of your store. You can locate it in an unusual place where it may reach an altogether different shopping audience. Kiosks allow you to branch out at a tiny fraction of the cost normally associated with opening additional storefront locations.

As every business owner knows, one of the biggest expenses is employees. Because an interactive kiosk offers tremendous opportunities to interact with customers more efficiently, you can pare down the number of employees you need to keep things running smoothly, and let skilled sales and customer service people devote more time and attention to shoppers who have complex questions or simply prefer a more personal touch.

Selecting a Kiosk Size

Posted by adminx on Feb 14, 2013 4:55:15 AM

How to choose the correct kiosk size.

The best kiosk size for any business is the one that fits comfortably in the rental space and has ample storage space for products when the day is through. At Palmer Retail Solutions, the most commonly ordered kiosk size is 10 ft x 10 ft. When deciding on the best size for your kiosk, you will want to consider three things:

  1. Your product
  2. The amount of storage space versus display space you desire
  3. Island versus walkthrough design

Product
The more expensive the product, the more storage space your kiosk will need. While a Pillow Pet kiosk owner may be able to leave their product overnight locked inside the display cases, a Rolex watch distributor is unlikely to be willing to take that much risk. We also find that cellular or wireless suppliers tend to need more space, due to the number of security devices required as part of the product display.
