Retail Photo Solutions

Retail photo printing solutions are primarily aimed at the High Street – post offices, pharmacies, cobblers and anywhere customers have a need to print photos.

They have progressed over the years from basic stand-alone kiosks, which are limited in what they can do, to the latest and greatest systems which provide customers with a real choice.

These days, retail solutions come in many shapes and forms, from software (which you simply add to an existing computer) to a full, dry lab solution. But, in today’s retail market, the most commonly used solution is the Retail Kiosk.

Mitsubishi are a world leader in this field and have a wide range of complimentary products. Whether you use the stand alone Smart D90RT or a full Kiosk solution with multiple Terminals the results will be the same.

With people taking more and more photos each day in addition to offering the conventional photo printing service there is a definite requirement to provide a range of personalised photo gift products to the customer. PhotoPrintMe revolutionises this process!

There are three different ways in which a retail photo kiosk can be operated:

1 Walk up and Plug In.
As the name suggests the customers walks up to the kiosk, plugs in their smart phone or tablet or USB stick and walks through the software which is running on a touch screen computer and chooses their images or products.

2 Operate Remotely.
This is where the customer uses their smart device and scans a QRCode or visits a weblink (often from your own website) and uses the PhotoPrintMe solution to choose their images and products. They then have the option of paying and then collecting in-store (having the items delivered to their home is also an option if you require). They can choose and place their order from anywhere and don’t need to download an app. They can of course use this system in your retail store.

This is where the guest can either Walk up or Plug in or use the PhotoPrintMe solution and represents the best of both worlds.

Mitsubishi Retail Kiosk Solutions and Printers need very little maintenance indeed. Unlike Wet Lab systems which are very expensive to buy and are costly to maintain and require chemicals and daily or weekly inspection Mitsubishi Dry Lab Kiosk Systems are the complete opposite.

As purchase costs are very low compared with Wet Lab (Chemical) systems and maintenace costs a fraction of older systems any ongoing costs are very small. Print Media is only purchased as required.
