The benefits of self service

Self-serve kiosks are becoming a common sight in businesses, in hospitality, at events and at universities around the world, providing a safer, easier way of printing ID cards for staff, visitors, and students. On-demand service is increasingly expected and limiting human intervention improves efficiencies.

Here are just some of the ways self-service ID card kiosks can improve your business, event or university.

Reduced human intervention

One of the core advantages of having a self-service kiosk is speed and convenience, as they provide a much more efficient way of doing things. As ID card kiosks require little manpower, on-site personnel can get on with their core work.

Having an easy-access ID kiosk is also ideal for workers who work night shifts and other unsociable hours. ID cards are easily misplaced, so having a simple-to-use, on-site ID card kiosk gives your employees the option to securely print and issue their own replacement cards at a time that suits their shifts.

Reducing face-to-face contact also helps visitors and employees feel more comfortable in a post-pandemic world.

This can make visitor management a far simpler process for all involved, whether you’re a contractor or a guest at an event.

Hospitality, education and events

For hospitality, universities and events, a self-serve checkout kiosk is perfect for enrolment and allows visitors to print their access and ID cards and for students to print off their university ID cards on demand. Instead of having to wait in a queue, students can simply follow some easy on-screen instructions and they’ll be ready to go.
