The aim of the LIFE kiosk is to meet the key demands consumers place on photographic retailers. The kiosk and software are designed to deliver multiple print sizes and formats, whilst being very user friendly.
“Many consumers use smartphones and tablets,” reasons Photo-Me Marketing Manager François De Freitas. “So in order to make the client more comfortable with this new kiosk, the LIFE software took inspiration from smartphones and tactile PC interfaces. It’s immediately approachable and the user interface is very intuitive to use.”
The print options are chosen via the 23″ multi-touch screen. With the all-in-one kiosk also featuring media readers and computer, customers can transfer their photos from smartphones and tablets, as well as USB cards and memory sticks. The screen boasts a Full HD resolution and can be tilted or even placed horizontally. Users are able to tap and drag or pinch images, just as they are able to do on their smartphone or tablet PC.
For customers, the LIFE kiosk is a powerful display tool allowing them to choose the size of previewed photos, thus facilitating navigation. For the retailer, thanks to the software configuration menu, the kiosk enables them to choose which products are available and define several parameters in order to adapt the kiosk to their customers’ wishes.
“The positive reaction at The Photography Show was incredible,” enthuses Photo-Me’s François De Freitas. “Consumers are naturally drawn to the screen and just want to touch and try – which was exactly what we were looking for them to do, in order to truly get to grips with our latest concept! Of course, if customers are attracted by the kiosk when placed in a retail environment, it’s a no brainer that an increase in the volume of print orders will naturally follow for the retailer…”
