KIOSK Information Systems announced its solution for the booming online retail trend and increase in home parcel delivery. KIOSK will demo the LockSpot, an RFID-equipped site-to-store automated locker and mobile consumer pick-up application, at the NRF Big Show next month in New York City.
KIOSK CEO Tom Weaver explained the LockSpot has advantages for both the consumer and the retailer — benefits that translate into lasting market potential.
"On-demand locker delivery provides consumers the ability to complete a secure pickup of their online purchase at their convenience, by simply entering an on-screen delivery code sent to their smartphone," Weaver said. "The flipside retailer benefits are twofold: self-service delivery options free of ongoing labor costs and increased foot traffic right back into their store. If you combine the pending 2013 residential delivery surcharge announcements of major carriers with increased home-delivery theft concerns, that points directly to growth in self-service locker solutions."
