Expanding Horizons: Self-Service Kiosks in Non-Traditional Settings

Digital technology now extends far beyond conventional indoor environments. As a top American kiosk manufacturer, we are pioneering the expansion of self-service kiosk technology into non-traditional settings, including parks, beaches, and community centers. Deploying kiosks in these spaces enriches public areas by making access to services and information more convenient and more readily available when people need them most. 

Bringing Digital Convenience to the Great Outdoors

Kiosks in Parks and Recreational Areas

Imagine visiting a sprawling park and easily locating a kiosk where you can quickly access maps, event information, or even pay for parking and reserve facilities, like park pavilions. Our outdoor kiosks are designed to be able to do all of these things, while withstanding the elements, offering robust, weather-resistant features that ensure functionality in any number of environmental conditions, from snow to the heat of hot summer days. These self-service kiosks can handle many functions, from dispensing trail maps and tickets and providing updates on local wildlife sightings to facilitating bike or boat rentals. For park managers and municipal authorities, these kiosks also offer a simpler way to manage permits, collect fees, and communicate information, reducing the need for staffing at multiple points across a large area.

Kiosks on Public Beaches or in Private Beach Resorts

Beaches are bustling hubs of activity where visitors can benefit immensely from easily accessible information and services. REDYREF’s beach-friendly outdoor kiosks are equipped with displays that allow for clear visibility even in bright sunlight and are built to resist sand and water exposure. Beachgoers can use these kiosks to check safety information, tide schedules, or local weather updates. Rental services for beach chairs, umbrellas, or water sports equipment can also be managed through these kiosks, enhancing convenience for tourists and operational efficiency for service providers.

Kiosks in Community Centers

Community centers are important hubs for local engagement, many of which offer a wide range of activities and services, including fitness classes and opportunities for self-enrichment and continuing education. Self-service kiosks placed in these centers can handle event registrations, facility bookings, and program information distribution. They can also be used for community feedback collection, allowing residents to directly participate in and influence local decision-making processes. By automating routine transactions, these kiosks free up staff to focus on better and more personalized service, including resident engagement efforts.

4 Advantages of Deploying Self-Service Kiosks in Unconventional Settings

1. Enhanced Accessibility and Convenience

Kiosks in outdoor and community settings make accessing information and services easier and more convenient for the public. This is particularly important and useful in areas where cellular service might be unreliable or where information needs to change frequently based on conditions or events.

2. Operational Efficiency

For municipalities and businesses operating in these areas, kiosks can offer a significant reduction in terms of operational burdens. Our kiosk software can automate systems to handle transactions and information dissemination, which can significantly cut down on labor costs and administrative overhead, allowing resources to be redirected towards maintenance, security, and customer service.

3. Environmental Impact and Sustainability

Digital kiosks also promote sustainability by reducing the need for printed materials, such as maps and brochures, which often become waste and ultimately contribute to littering. In fact, our kiosk software can send users information such as directions and maps, and even tickets, directly to their phones via mobile hand-off and SMS

4. Engagement and Revenue Opportunities

Interactive kiosks can also serve as platforms to engage and educate the public about any number of topics, including communicating information about the local environment as well as its history. For local governments and community organizations, they offer a dynamic advertising channel that can display targeted messages about local attractions or services, potentially driving additional revenue, allowing the kiosks to quickly pay for themselves.

At REDYREF, we are committed to pushing the boundaries of where and how kiosk technology can be utilized.
