Escher wins self-service kiosk contract

Escher has announced that it has been awarded a contract to supply its self-service kiosk solution to a new “top tier postal operator”. A spokesperson for Escher told Post&Parcel today that the company cannot name the postal operator yet but will be able to do so when the system “goes live” – which is scheduled to be in October.

Escher will be providing self-service kiosk stations which can operate 24/7 in an unattended environment.

The kiosks incorporate “cuboidal” technology for three dimensional scanning of parcels to measure volume as well as weight.

Initially, the kiosks will be used to┬áprocess parcel dispatches, acceptance and drop offs, label printing and payment. The postal operator will be using the kiosks to meet its customers’ need for an “always open” post office.

Liam Church, Escher’s CEO said: “We are delighted to be working with a new top tier postal operator. We believe that offering service at multiple touch points is an integral part of doing business in today’s demanding retail environment.

“Self-service kiosks will play a big part in how postal operators redefine their point of service locations over the next five years.”
