Biometrics for Self-service kiosk
14 March, 2022
Biometric technology is gradually becoming main-stream in commercial and public sector these days. As biometric applications can enhance customer services and streamline operation system, there is a huge ROI gained by their implementation. In this case, biometric self-service kiosk can be a great example.
Biometric self-service kiosk is an electronic kiosk with an inbuilt biometric scanner (iris, fingerprint, face, etc.) which is used to identify accesses or users. It also includes customizable software to meet unique self-service needs and delivers an automated and personalized user experience. Kiosks are usually placed at the point of entry in common areas with various applications such as:
• Healthcare: patient check-in and pre-registration, matching and accessing medical records
• Banking: automated banking service
• Offices: access control, time attendance
• Border control: enrollment / registration / authentication of visa/passport/ID card
