Samsung Laser Printers Chosen By Kiosk Information SystemsSamsung laser printers meet the mission critical printing challenge in self-service kiosks (May 05, 2005)
Kiosk Information Systems Inc., (KIS), the largest designer and manufacturer of self-service kiosks in North America, chooses Samsung to supply Laser Printers that meet the mission critical printing needs of their kiosks nationwide. KIS clients include Pepsi, McDonald's, FEDEX, Wal-Mart, Citibank, Disney, Sony, Borders, Mercedes Benz and USPS. Their cutting edge electronic kiosks, with touch screens and push-to-print buttons, are tailored to every imaginable application including retail, human resources, order entry, ticketing, bill payment, photo kiosks, music download, and public internet access.
?The information on demand market continues to grow with new self service kiosks appearing everyday and the applications that Kiosk Information Systems offer are on the cutting edge of this exciting market, said Gregg Prendergast, Vice President of Sales for Samsungs Information Technology Division (ITD).?Samsung is proud to have our laser printers as an integral part of this emerging technology that creates high quality, cost effective and durable printing solutions for this exponentially expanding market.
Self service kiosks are used hundreds, sometimes thousands of times a day so it is crucial that printers inside the kiosks are rugged, robust, and relatively inexpensive to operate.
?It would defeat the purpose of a self service kiosk if it required constant maintenance,? said Tom Weaver, V.P. of Sales & Marketing, Kiosk Information Systems, Inc. ?For this reason, and given the confidence level we need in a printing solution, weve chosen Samsung -- for the reliability of their industrial grade laser printers, as well as the remarkably low cost of ownership.
Even though weve reached the digital age, the demand for printing has actually increased in certain areas, particularly Retail and Human Resources, two of the largest markets in which kiosks are deployed and kiosks with printers are being used.
Human Resource programs rely on kiosks when there are a large number of ?disconnected employees (without PC.) Employees use kiosks to view and print information on 401k plans, benefits, and stubs for direct deposits. This also saves companies money, because receipts are only printed for those employees who request them from the kiosks.
Retail outlets are using kiosks with built-in printers in a host of different ways. Customers can print out gift registry lists for weddings and baby showers, product information, gift certificates, and product pick-up sheets. Kiosks are also being used for prospective employees to print job applications, saving management time and resources.
Automotive outlets are relying heavily on kiosks so customers can print out a full breakdown on parts needed and then bring that information to the counter for efficient service. Kiosks are also used to print out maps, for paint matching, and for customer loyalty programs.
