Kiosk Association April 2022 Restaurant Tech Trends with Panera and Chipotle + NRA Preview

​DENVER, Colo. -- April 2022 Self-Service: The Kiosk Association is pleased to announce we are sponsoring a restaurant tech deep dive with Panera Bread and Chipotle digital strategy officers as part of Nations Restaurant News (NRN). Topics include interactive digital, robotics, pickup lockers for delivery services, EV chargers and more.

Coming Events: National Restaurant Association in Chicago in May is the big upcoming event. See the dual 55 outdoor drive-thru digital menu from Keyser, a small 15" AIO for self-order and the new Clover Kiosk by Nanonation (using the Samsung kiosk). There is a social event being put on Saturday night by Intel and if interested in attended email us.

ISE in Barcelona is in May. And then June 8, 2022 is InfoComm 2022. AV is huge and especially for all forms of menu displays for outdoor (think Drive-Thru which is 75% of sales?). Big screens for EV charging stations at places like Walgreens, Kohls, and now restaurants. The free advertising on Google Maps doesn't hurt.

Kiosk Association (KMA) Releases Articles of Organization for ADA

​DENVER, Colo. -- February Self-Service News: KMA is pleased to announce our Articles of Organization. The document is now available on the kma.global website. "This is another step towards strengthening the association and providing an even more effective accessibility and ADA direction for the Association," said Craig Keefner, manager.

On Feb 16, 2022 we had our quarterly call with over 50 participants. Topics included the upcoming rulemaking session scheduled to begin in April, industry-wide certification options and POS terminals. The newly appointed eight members of the U.S. Access Board will be introduced at the March 9th meeting.

This month we published the leading article by attorney Lainey Feingold, Kiosk Accessibility - It's The Law -- Lainey is an expert at structured negotiation. We added Marsha Mazz & David Capozzi as new honorary members of the Hall of Fame. And finally, the Senate has formed a commission to modernize HIPAA.

And new technology like Smart City deployments and EV Charging Stations (new ones at Walgreens) are using blanket statement "units are ADA-compliant". It would help if those items were documented. There are also data privacy issues and the revenue potential for selling personal data.

Tech Highlight This Month

Lidar -- the new Grabango C-Store deployment continues the trend for ultimate contactless. 340 convenience stores and we can assume it's lidar-based. Nourish-Bloom in Georgia is using the same lidar technology as well. It's the new "just walk in -- just walk out" shopping model.

Coming Events

Our next in-person event is in Chicago May 21st and the National Restaurant Association show. We are booth 6576 in the Tech Pavilion next to Epson and SpotOn.

June 8, 2022 in Las Vegas is InfoComm 2022 and we are an official media partner for InfoComm. Big screens for menu boards, EV charging stations at places like Walgreens and Kohls.
