Interview with Tom Weaver of KIOSK

Tom Weaver, VP of Sales and Marketing for KIOSK, talks about the company and business in general during interview for selfservice magazine.

The 14-year-old company is also, by the way, “kicking butt, growing at 30 percent to 40 percent over last year,” said Tom Weaver, KIOSK’s vice president of sales and marketing. Part of the reason, he said, is the company’s singular niche. “I don’t think anybody does exactly what we do. The way we manufacture and design product is unique. There are very large companies that sell kiosks, but their philosophy is more along the lines of, ‘Here’s what we build, we hope you like it and that it works for you.’ Our philosophy is more along the lines of, ‘Tell us what you want and we’ll build it for you.’”

While there are “some smaller versions of us out there for sure, as far as people who have the reference base and the history, I think we are unique,” Weaver continued.

Privately held KIOSK’s single-minded focus has proven another plus, Weaver said. “This is all we do. We don’t claim to be a jack-of-all-trades-and-master-ofnone. We’re hardware guys, and we’ve never strayed from that.”
