The first of Olea’s new products is a small footprint freestanding kiosk called the California. Even smaller than the California, the second new kiosk, called the Carolina, is an ultra-compact machine.
To meet the demands of the fast-growing micro market industry, Olea
Kiosks has developed these two kiosks to specifically cater to the
unique needs of micro markets. Both kiosks can be serviced from the
front side, which suits them to against-wall
applications. These kiosks come outfitted with large 19-inch touchscreen
monitors as well as barcode scanners that can scan products, loyalty
cards, and cellphones.
In addition, both kiosks accept cash, credit cards, Apple Pay, or payment through biometrics, and both can be shipped with either PCI compliant or EMV compliant devices. To round out the full-featured units, they both can be accessed via landline, Wi-Fi or cellular connectivity, providing easy access and management for the kiosk operator.
"Kiosks in the micro market space tend to be repurposed designs that are not fit for this environment,” said chief executive officer Frank Olea in a news release. In addition, Olea notes that many kiosks used in the space are proprietary designs that are not available to other developers. We’ve just changed all of that with these two new kiosks designed specifically for micro markets.”
Both Kiosks are ADA compliant and have modular accessories, allowing
Olea’s customers to order the kiosks with only the hardware that they
need for their application. They are available with fully
customizable colour and graphic options to allow integration of brand design. The units are offered by Olea with no minimum purchase quantity, and
can be delivered with a lead time as short as three weeks from date of
While the kiosks are built to work with any software platform, SDKs are available to allow for extensive customization to the software on the systems.
