The demand for self-service kiosks has been rising over the past few years. Kiosks are used by banks, leisure and transport operators, universities and shops to meet growing consumer needs and expectations for instant, on-the-spot services, while also reducing operating and personnel costs.
Self-service kiosks can incorporate card issuing machine to provide faster service to users. The fields of application are vast, ranging from payment cards to student cards, through visitor badges, ski passes or gift cards.
The card creation modules offer a wide range of graphic and electronic personalization options using magnetic stripes, chips and contactless chips. The modules are generally produced by a specialist in plastic card printing systems and then incorporated into the kiosks as an add-on by the kiosk manufacturers or system integrator.
