Self-service has infiltrated almost every aspect of daily life, and the self-service market has become one of the fastest-growing sectors in the world.

In many public entertainment places like Internet cafes, video arcades, dance halls, etc., minors are forbidden to enter on non-holidays, in case they skip classes. Therefore, confirming the identities of customers before entering is necessary. Self-service kiosks play an important role in streamlining the check-in process and enhancing the security of public places.

In China, Internet cafes are obliged to check and register the ID cards or other valid documents of Internet users. This regulation enhances the security of Internet cafes greatly but pushes Internet café operators into a dilemma at the same time. Manual inspection brings a higher labor cost and lower verification efficiency. What’s worse, those customers who suffer from a social phobia may resist contacting a real person and having a not good experience.

Self-service kiosks, which are often used in supermarkets and fast-food restaurants to save costs and improve efficiency, can also be applied in other public places. Recently, Telpo K7, the 21.5-inch self-service kiosks, has been introduced in Internet cafes and brought lots of conveniences.

Modern Internet cafes not only provide a place for people to go online, they also provide value-added services, such as selling snacks and drinks. Self-service kiosks make customers finish the purchase process on their own.
