What experience a self-service kiosk brings to you in a restaurant or supermarket


As we have known, we often see many varieties of the self-service kiosks and checkouts in supermarkets and restaurants. They give us a different life experience and benefit to the merchant in providing self-checkout machines in reduced labor costs. An attendant can often run 5 to 8 checkout lanes with the work of the cashier now being assumed by the customer. The size of a self-checkout machine is also smaller than a traditional checkout manned by a cashier; thus, a store can save space, which could be used for more shelves, display cabinets or additional checkouts.

The self-service kiosk can also sometimes be faster than using a cashier lane. This can reduce the length of checkout queues and waiting times. In a survey it was found that more than 40% of customers think that the self-service kiosk is more convenient and faster than the cashier-assisted lane.
