Touch screen technology in kiosks / vending machines are now part of our everyday lives, whether it be from ordering a coffee, or paying for a parking ticket.

It would be easy to assume that the display and touch element is a simple ‘desktop monitor’, but there are many more factors that need to be considered.  Many attributes of a kiosk are assumed, i.e. the product being vended is of a certain quality, or services being provided are to be correct, as will there be an obvious expectation for the kiosk to be working etc.  Failure to meet this will deem the kiosk to be good or bad. Even a working kiosk which is poor-quality will have a negative impact on the brand. The CDS goal is therefore to provide a high quality, reliable product which is aesthetically pleasing.


Ease of interaction

Ultimately once the consumer is in front of the kiosk they will be focussing on the ease and quality of interaction through the display and touchscreen.  This is the reason CDS consider the display and touch choice a critical part of any kiosk design.
