- New Off-the-Shelf Kiosk Enclosure Helps Retailers Easily and Cost-Effectively Implements On-demand Price Verification, Custom Coupon and Item Location Services

Zebra Technologies Europe Limited, a global leader in specialty printing and automatic identification solutions, today announced the immediate availability of Zebra Kiosk Print Station. This all-in-one kiosk solution is a compact enclosure that can house a Zebra TTP 2000(TM) series kiosk printer, a roll of media and has a mounting for a compact touch-screen kiosk computer. It can be integrated with a touchscreen out-of-the-box without the long lead-time and high cost associated with a custom solution.

“As customer self-service applications increase over the years, retailers are keen to develop cost-effective solutions that improve store efficiencies and at the same time increase customer satisfaction,” said Rod Rodericks, Vice President and Managing Director, EMEA. “Until now, most kiosk enclosures had to be custom built causing long deployment times which has led to lost sales opportunities and a decrease in customer confidence. The Zebra Kiosk Print Station allows even the smallest retailers to realise the benefits of self-service solutions immediately.”

The Zebra Kiosk Print Station can be easily mounted on a wall or pole, freeing up valuable floor and counter space. The Zebra TTP 2000 receipt kiosk printer, Zebra’s most compact and reliable embedded printer, is kept secure in a lockable enclosure along with the associated media. Retailers can choose from a variety of media options depending on their needs, including four different receipt label widths. The IBM AnyPlace or Motorola MK Series are both compact, interactive self-service devices that can be securely fastened to the Zebra Kiosk Print Station.

The Zebra Kiosk Print Station combined with the Zebra TTP 2000 unit supports a range of applications found in more expensive custom kiosk solutions such as:

- Extended Aisle: Enables customers to browse and order products not on display such as electrical and white goods. - Aisle Location: Expedites the shopping experience for customers by helping them locate a specific product or department in a large retail environment. - Quick Serve Deli: Allows customers to place their deli order and pick it up when they have completed their shopping. - Gift Registry: Simplifies the gift registration process by allowing customers to create a central registry. - Loyalty and Discount vouchers: Provides customers with vouchers tailored to their shopping habits. - Recipe /wine Search: Allows customers to search and print recipes or select wines to complement recipes. Can be paired with the coupon application so that customers receive coupons for items in the recipe.

Available in Europe, Mid-East and Africa immediately, the Zebra Kiosk Print Station (not including the Zebra TTP 2000 receipt kiosk printer) is sold from 385 Euros through Zebra’s vast network of channel partners.
