KIOSK Information Systems and Posiflex Showcase Interactive Self-service and POS Innovations Enabled with IoT Monitoring at NRF Big Show 2019
LOUISVILLE, Colo.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Together, KIOSK Information Systems (KIOSK) and parent company, Posiflex will showcase a wide array of new connected retail solutions for self-service, point of sale, and digital signage at the 2019 NRF Big Show, Booth #3755. The team will demonstrate advances in hardware, software, and service technologies that bridge digital and physical spaces to facilitate connected consumer transactions.
Posiflex’s recently appointed Global Chief Strategy Officer, Hans Peter Nüdling, states, “I’m thrilled to introduce the Posiflex Group at NRF. ‘The Posiflex Group’ references the collective brands of Posiflex, KIOSK, and Portwell computing. It encompasses a strategic blend of world-class POS, self-service, industrial gateway/computing technologies under one virtual corporate roof. At NRF, the Group will be illustrating Omnichannel IoT applied in Retail, Hospitality, and Digital Signage product applications. Our Group mission is to leverage the leading-edge technologies and earned domain expertise of each brand to collaboratively drive new product innovation and global market growth. Further, uniting the vast global Engineering, Operations, and Distribution infrastructure elevates the Group’s strategic IoT solution portfolio and value proposition for our global customer base.” Mr. Nüdling will be building up a major European presence, supplementing primary design and manufacturing facilities in the US and Asia.
Inside the booth, the Group will debut two new standard kiosk offerings. The TK Series (designed by KIOSK and manufactured by Posiflex in Taiwan), are modular platforms with a 32” or 21” display. The new Paragon TK3200 Series kiosk features a sleek 32” PCAP display with componentry purpose-built for quick serve and fast casual restaurant order automation (wall mount, single/dual sided pedestal). Further, the existing Stellar TK2100 Series kiosk has been re-designed as an innovative modular unit with mainstream component options common to most self-service transactions (pedestal or countertop). Both TK models are built with highly reliable Posiflex components, pairing superior life-cycle and supply chain advantage with attractive pricing. The TK kiosk series is built in Taiwan and stocked regionally for final configuration, providing best-in-class lead-times.
KIOSK will proudly feature two new partner platforms. Beabloo and KIOSK have collaborated on a digital signage platform empowered with active customer intelligence. The demo simultaneously shows customer facial recognition and related engagement/demographic analytics, illustrating how real-time customer insight data helps retailers optimize ad content. It provides scannable digital QR codes empowering consumers to carry store offers, promotions, and product information to complete purchases anytime - through any channel.
A second KIOSK partner collaboration is with Bitstop, a pioneer in Bitcoin ATMs. This platform enables instantaneous cash to bitcoin purchase transactions with a simple kiosk UI. This fast-growing cryptocurrency ATM category helps retailers monetize floor space and increase foot traffic.
KIOSK will also feature their own licensed product platforms. Demos include sophisticated licensable bill payment hardware and software, freeing up Store Associates to focus entirely on closing new sales and driving store profits. Additional retail self-service solutions include loyalty/gift registry platforms automating in-store signup, promotional offer presentation, and self-service gift registry management. Standard locker demonstrations for BOPIS (buy online pick up in store), illustrate secure online sales transaction pick-up, driving customer convenience and security, bonused with additional in-store foot traffic/secondary purchases.
In booth, Posiflex - best known for reliable POS solutions - will feature their award-winning RT Series POS terminals (slim standard and widescreen displays), and MT series POS tablets. MT Tablets represent the next-generation in mobile POS with durable Gorilla Glass and optional EMV L2 chip and pin options.
Advanced deployment management software product demonstrations include real-time IoT alerting software to monitor connected POS, kiosk, and signage end-points in real time and at scale. A feature rich remote monitoring dashboard displays the overall health of POS, kiosk, and signage platforms down to the peripheral and component level. This end-point automation visibility is the gold standard for managing uptime and controlling field service costs.
