What is a Self-Serve Kiosk?

Definition

The word kiosk comes from the Greek word "kikos" which means "tower". In other words, a kiosk is a small structure that is similar to a tower. Also known as interactive kiosks, self-serve kiosks are self-standing displays that present information or facilitate a transaction. In modern times, kiosks are usually associated with those that provide a specific service, such as a ticketing kiosk at a train station. They are a regular part of day-to-day commerce; particularly in the restaurant business.
