ARLINGTON, Texas -- The Pinnacle Corp. launched its new self-service kiosk solution, Palm.kioskTM, powered by Xpedient. The company partnered with Xpedient to capitalize on its expertise in the self-service kiosk industry within the convenience store market, the company reported.
"We are pleased to introduce Palm.kiosk to the market," said Denise Lewis, palm POS solution manager. "Palm.kiosk will strengthen Pinnacle's food service offering and allow a platform to launch other kiosk-based functionality in the future using Xpedient's proven technology. This product is already established in the c-store market place making it a great addition to Pinnacle's broad product line."
Pinnacle Corp. will re-brand Xpedient's kiosk to market, sell and support the product as a Pinnacle product under the name Palm.kiosk.
Xpedient currently has over 200 foodservice kiosks installed in retail locations throughout the market, including key clients MAPCO Mart and Thorntons Inc.
The self-service kiosk is an extension of Pinnacle's Palm POS, adding even more integration convenience to their solutions offerings for current and future Pinnacle clients, the company reported.
Palm.kiosk will be offered on multiple hardware platforms including Ultimate Technologies, NCR, Pro-Tech and Meridian, and will support all basic QSR requirements of the convenience store industry, according to the company.
Initially, Palm.kiosk will include foodservice order operation capabilities, but will be expanded to include additional functionality in the near future.
Currently, the kiosk offers many valuable features including integrated bump bar, kitchen video and consumer video systems, simple to use graphics-based corporate office authoring tools, remote support tools, and automated communication mechanisms to distribute setup and change information to store kiosk locations.
Retailers will also have the option of fitting their Palm.kiosk units with custom graphics to provide another mode of advertising and communication to their customers at the self-service kiosk.
"We are very excited about our software partnership with Pinnacle," stated Michael Golway, president of Xpedient. "Using PCATS standards, Palm.kiosk will utilize Xpedient's easy to use screen management software. This award winning software will allow retailers to quickly build and maintain their kiosk screens with simple drag and drop mouse clicks. Screen content and item prices must be kept up- to-date in successful kiosk programs and Pinnacle has selected the right tool for the job."
