Many large retail chains have discovered that Web-enabled kiosks dramatically enhance their customer service capabilities. Now, smaller businesses are finding value in offering customers self-service options. Specialized retailers like Bishop's Orchards in Guilford, Conn. are leveraging Netkey's scalable technology to provide top-notch customer service at a low cost.
Using Netkey Creator, Keith Bishop, the market's fifth generation owner, created a kiosk that allows customers to use his Web site (www.bishopsorchards.com) to register for his grocery store loyalty program, order gift baskets and specialty items, and learn more about the business.
"The kiosk is like having an additional helping hand," notes Bishop. "Customer service has always been an essential factor in the success of the market over the past 130 years. Netkey's kiosk solution has enabled us to bring our customer service into the twenty-first century."
Classroom training is available by request for Netkey customers and authorized developers.
