1 September 2015 – Escher Group Holdings plc, a world leading provider of outsourced, point of service software for use in the worldwide postal, retail and financial industries, has been awarded a contract to supply its Self-Service Kiosk solution to a new top tier postal operator. The solution, running on robust hardware, will deliver Self-Service Kiosk stations which can operate 24/7 in an unattended environment.
The kiosks have a user friendly and intuitive interface and they incorporate cuboidal technology for three dimensional scanning of parcels to measure volume as well as weight.
Initially, the Self-Service Kiosk solution will provide a new customer experience processing parcel dispatches, acceptance and drop offs, label printing and payment. By introducing these store types, the postal operator is meeting its customers' need for an "always open" post office.
Liam Church, Escher's CEO said:
"We are delighted to be working with a new top tier postal operator. We believe that offering service at multiple touchpoints is an integral part of doing business in today's demanding retail environment.
"Self-service kiosks will play a big part in how postal operators redefine their point of service locations over the next five years.
"This type of innovative and fully operative 24 hour Self-Service Kiosk reinforces Escher's dedication to being at the forefront of technology in the industry."
