What does a self-service kiosk mean?

You go to a metro station and see that ticketing screen, or just take the example of a vending machine. Well, those my friend, are self-service kiosks. 

A Self-Service Kiosk is a type of interactive terminal that performs certain retail functions for customers, such as presenting information or automating a process. They save labor time and overhead expenses by eliminating the need for frontline staff to perform unskilled tasks and lets the customer receive the service at their own convenience.

Self-Service Kiosks are used in several industries, ranging from retail outlets to government and healthcare units, to carry out a wide array of functions. There are different types of Self-Service Kiosks, including Retail Kiosks, Information Kiosks, Bill Payment Kiosks, and more. 

Self-Service Kiosks can be set up with the help of a Unified Endpoint Management solution to ease Kiosk configuration and streamline the deployment of Kiosk devices.  

Setting up Self-Service with a UEM has several advantages, including more flexibility and trustworthy security. For example, you can keep an eye on your Kiosk devices and implement location monitoring regulations and remote actions in the event that they are stolen. To secure Kiosk data, you may remotely push information and enforce device encryption restrictions. A UEM also supports numerous platforms and operating systems, allowing more device versatility.
