Retail was one of the first industries to fully adopt kiosks with integrated scanners. They’re widely used for self-service POS, but can also be used for Click & Collect, self-service returns and for stock management.
Public Service & Education
More and more online shops are now doing paperless returns and therefore issue a QR code to be scanned at the post office. Deploying a self-service kiosk scanner at post-offices or corner shops increases efficiency and revenue. Scanners in library or education settings enhance the environment
Check-in kiosks can be sped up for the user by the installation of a scanner. This can grab their details instantly rather than going through a manual process on a keyboard or on the touchscreen.
Events & Exhibitions
QR codes are perfect at exhibitions or events, not only for granting access but also for use during the event. This is especially prevalent at trade shows – business cards can quickly be scanned with details captured, food and beverages ordered and event communication shared.
Kiosk scanners that are used for clocking in and out are ideal for time and attendance in offices. Temporary QR codes can also be created for visitors. Additionally, kiosks can be deployed for the scanning of documents, which can be a huge time saver in most office settings.
Leisure Centres & Gyms
Kiosk scanners can be integrated with entry systems, so gym members no long need to find a card to gain entry to the leisure centre, a code on their smartphone will do the job for them. This can also work for classes and different areas.
Casinos & Entertainment
Scanners can be used to print tickets or coupons at arrival of the entertainment complex. Scanners can also be used to open up a gambling or betting account on a kiosk.
