D-Tech International introduces self-serve solution for libraries
D-Tech International has introduced serveIT-T, enabling library patrons to check out and check in their items via mini kiosks, according to a press release.
The kiosk also engages patrons, providing real-time information on their account and has full digital payments as an option.
The serveIT-T mini kiosks can be positioned at points within the library for patrons to check out or check in items via RFID. The tablet kiosks are a viable alternative to full-size checkout kiosks for library locations with limited floor space. The mini kiosk is also suitable for mobile libraries, bookmobiles and remote libraries, with no network cable required. It integrates with the library's wireless network.
The tablet kiosk also offers payment capabilities, account information, check in and "meet and greet" functionality. Staff can walk around the library with the ability to check out or check in items via barcode or RFID.
"With the use of the serveIT-T self-checkouts, libraries are able to eliminate many of the larger self-checkout kiosks and related costs," Marvin Crisp, president of D-Tech International, said in the press release. "Libraries can free up space and offer more open environments for patron interaction and project collaboration. Our self-service tablet solutions further supports our vision of providing patrons and librarians with more service options and interaction. This unique product innovation will create an open environment within the library, reduce costs and provide a better customer service experience."
