Kiosks encompass technology such as check-in terminals, retail self-checkouts, ATMs, smart parcel lockers, vending machines, fast-food ordering terminals, wayfinding maps, etc.  77% of the businesses surveyed planned to include kiosk technology in their operations within the next five years. Self-service technologies allow businesses to create better customer experiences through seamless contact.
