July 2, 2021

Samsung Electronics is expanding availability of its an all-in-one kiosk solution that offers contactless ordering and payment capabilities. Offering easy install options and protective coating, the Samsung Kiosk is now available in 12 countries, including the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Ireland, France, Sweden, the Netherlands, Belgium, Spain, Austria, Australia, and Singapore.

“Kiosks have quickly become a part of everyday life, providing customers with a simple and interactive way to purchase items while giving businesses an innovative solution to reimagine the workplace and increase efficiency,” said Samsung senior vice president of visual display Hyesung Ha.

The kiosk's 24" touchscreen display is powered by Samsung’s SoC (System on Chip) technology. The kiosk eliminates the need for an external PC while delivering powerful and reliable technology that reduces power consumption compared to standard use external PCs. It provide sa variety of payment options, including a cradle for major EMV (Europay, MasterCard, Visa) terminals, in addition to barcode and QR code readers, along with a built-in printer and Wi-Fi system.

The Samsung Kiosk is suitable for any business environment with a variety of installation options. Firstly, the countertop type can be installed on any counter or table within a store, without the need for any additional construction, saving time, cost and space. When installed with a stand, it can be positioned anywhere within a store to be seamlessly integrated with the interior design, due to the detachable functionality of the stand. The Kiosk can also be wall-mounted to maximize space savings.

Samsung applied a UL-listed Antimicrobial Coating to its kiosk's display. The coating also prevents the screen from being tarnished by oxygen and sulfur in the air, maintaining crystal clear picture quality throughout the unit's lifespan of the Kiosk. In addition, the display is covered with a shatterproof film.

The kiosk uses three-layer security protection powered by Samsung Knox technology, designed to protect its hardware, payment platform and application, as well as customer information.

Samsung's fintech and POS partners include GRUBBRR, Softpoint, Nanonation Inc., 900 Solutions Corp., Big Digital Corp., Global P.O.S, EuroPOS and Nowbusking, among a dozen others.
