Welcome to the KIS monthly newsletter!

Keeping up with the self-service kiosk industry is not an easy task. With news from KIS (the market leader) we hope to serve the community.

Some un-official KIS news we can share:

  • Two weeks ago, on national stage with the Today Show on NBC, Bernadette Peters and Mary Tyler Moore
    announced the new Pet Ark project (with the help of KIS).

  • KIS scored another major win for new kiosks in a very large home improvement chain.

  • Do the acronyms DHS and/or GSA mean anything to you? They mean something to Pete Snyder with KIS. Pete is coordinating
    our programs in this area. If you are interested please contact Pete at [email protected]

  • In August, Craig Keefner, the founder of, joined the crew here in Colorado. Craig is currently
    putting together a Certified Solution Partner program (CSP) which encompasses Software, Hardware and Consulting services solutions that KIS offers. If interested, you can contact Craig at [email protected]

  • KIS recently added new offices in New York (Manhattan), Dallas, San Diego and Minneapolis.

  • We released our first software product specifically for the Retail POS markets with our javaPOS drivers (1.7 latest version). JavaPOS is the next generation OPOS.

  • Recreational News: PR Newswire and Thomson Financial held an invitational golf tournament which KIS won with an unbelievable 20
    under par 52.
