A kiosk is extremely diverse and can have multiple purposes, roles and functionalities.
From ticketing, information giving, purchasing, ordering and checking-in; a touch screen unit can serve almost any industry for any affair; and one of these is body-scanning.
We all know what it can be like to go clothes shopping and to try on a million and one things before buying because it just didn’t fit right. Multiple stores have their own dimensions so a size in one shop can be two sizes larger in another retailer. According to research in a women’s publication, the average woman tries on 15 pairs of jeans before buying one pair.
And it is due to this that a body-scanning kiosk can help. It can match shoppers’ bodies with the perfect fit and style of clothing so you can ditch trying on clothes in the changing rooms for hours on end and get out there and wear the new attire!
The touch screen technology can take body measurements and then match the results to the sizing specifications of their particular brand listed in the kiosk database. In no time at all basic demographic information is registered, whilst full clothed inside the booth and then a printer feature then enables the shoppers to print out the outcomes and give choices and options of what is available in-store that will fit her body best.
A Shopping Guide at one of the touch screen monitors and kiosk then guides the consumer on style, price and retailer that would fit perfectly. The reported high scores are said to bring the shopper more confidence in purchasing.

Product information and location increases customer loyalty and satisfaction by empowering shoppers to accomplish their goals independently.
It frees employees to provide customers with more targeted and beneficial interactions as opposed to menial transactions and it enables promotion, cross-selling and up-selling.
Bill payment function allows organisations to reach the growing unbanked market, particularly in a challenging economy.
Again it frees employees to focus on serving customers, ensuring their problems are dealt with and they are satisfied instead of the time consuming and expensive task of processing payments.
Therefore this offers a quick and simple option for customers to complete a necessary task; increasing revenue.
Customer/patient check-in kiosks ultimately streamline the process of dealing with customers. In a hospital staff will know exactly where a patient is, who is seeing them, at what time their appointment is and what their problem is.
It is efficient in that one kiosk can do the same tasks as a member of staff, reducing wage costs.
It also allows customers to browse categories and information until served instead of standing in a line getting bored. This thereby exposes them to brand and products, improving advertising revenues and decreasing waiting time.
