UK tech start-up, Bulldog Kiosks, has installed what they describe as, the world’s first self-service, customisable gift card kiosk into a chain of pubs, boosting sales by enabling customers to design, pay for and dispense their own unique gift card on the spot.
The freestanding touchscreen kiosk, installed by Windsor and Eton Brewery (WEBREW), takes a customer selfie or allows them to upload an image of a loved one alongside a personal message. Once payment is made through the kiosk, the uniquely designed gift card is dispensed in under a minute.
Bulldog Kiosks Founder, Phil Wood told us “We wanted to provide WEBREW customers with a truly unique and unusual experience – to design and create a gift card for friends and family on the spot. The touchscreen interface and range of colourful templates make it incredibly easy to use and people are loving it.”
The technology behind the Bulldog Kiosk touchscreen means it can be white labelled and used in any retail outlet, enabling shoppers in department stores, sports shops, fashion boutiques, fast food outlets and more to create their own gift card with a personalised message in under a minute. Phil Wood believes that, “The ability to add that personal touch to a gift card drives footfall, enhances the customer experience and reduces waiting times at the till.”
