DVDXpress adds online reservation feature to kiosks
NEW YORK, NY — DVDXpress Inc., operator of automated DVD rental kiosks, announced the launch of its Internet Reservations Service. Customers can now go online to see what DVDs are in stock at any kiosk in the DVDXpress network and reserve the movie of their choice. The reserved movie will be held automatically for customers to pick up at their neighborhood BI-LO, Food World, or Bruno's supermarket in the Southeast and at Pathmark stores in the Northeast.
"Due to the popularity of the DVDXpress kiosks among supermarket customers, our retail partners asked us to come up with a way to make the rental process even faster and more convenient for movie renters," said Arun Mathur, chief marketing officer for DVDXpress. "Now with the ability to browse and reserve DVD titles via the Internet, DVDXpress kiosks will be able to serve more customers even faster."
"We are thrilled to offer our customers the additional convenience of reserving DVDs online to pick up at the DVDXpress kiosks in our stores," said John Symons, executive vice president of sales and operations for BI-LO/Bruno's. "This has the dual benefit of speeding up the rental process at the kiosk and providing certainty that a shopper's favorite movie will be available when he or she makes the trip to the kiosk."
