Cost-Effective Kiosk Technology Upgrade
A National Retail Client with over 500 locations asked us to improve their in-store customer-facing photo kiosk experience in 2004. Their existing kiosk was expensive, identical to the unit their competitors used, and expensive to service. They charged Retail Imaging with developing an affordable custom kiosk solution that employed leading edge technology that also minimized the longer-term cost of ownership.
