Uncle Sams selects Payment Kiosks for their flagship store in Brighton
Nov 2023

Uncle Sams, the popular burger chain, selects Payment Kiosks as their kiosks and EPOS provider. Thought we could only supply kiosks? Think again. Uncle Sams took 2 years evaluating the market and decided that we were the only ones that could tick all the boxes they needed. They had all the big boys in (yes you know their names), went to all the restaurant and takeaway shows but still chose us. Why, you might ask? It’s because our innovative EPOS is on a new platform which allows for highly bespoke features that Uncle Sams needed – this includes ability to see a very fast changing environment of stock being used in multiple kitchen zones aswell as being fully integrated with Uber Eats, walk in customer and kiosk orders. Uncle Sams Head Office also needed a portal so that automated stock delivery could take place, aswell as other features such as sales reports and HR training. Please watch for video coming soon.

No EPOS till – just kiosks!
Dec 2023

Cool Korean restaurant, Chimaek, goes for a new approach towards customer delivery and selects Payment Kiosks. We were selected to supply 2 customer facing kiosks and a 3 zone kitchen management system for this new innovative restaurant. This means there is actually no EPOS till – everything is ordered via the kiosks only! Obviously if you are going to have no EPOS till then the kiosk system must be the absolute best and ultra reliable! So we were chosen as we have the easiest system for the customers to use. Many EPOS suppliers cannot meet the particular requirements of Chimaek’s QSR needs, this includes ability to modify dishes and split the order into different parts of the kitchen, whilst also handling delivery, eat in and takeaway orders.

Cash still king?
July 2023

Solihull Golf Club replicates the system that Payment Kiosks installed at West Midlands Golf Club with a new cash taking kiosk. This allows customers wanting to pay by cash to buy anything in the bar, restaurant and pro shop. The kiosk gives change in both note and coin which is extremely convenient for customers and cuts down on coin handling. This also means that staff do not need to handle any cash whatsoever.

New client – Eggfree Cake Box now over half way through 100 kiosk rollout
March 2022

Eggfree Cake Box have over 180 stores in the UK. Payment Kiosks were selected to provide 100 initial stores with kiosks. As of 14th February 2022, 60 stores have so far been installed as part of the roll out program. Payment Kiosks provide software and hardware that allows customers to buy cakes in store and arrange a pickup time to collect. This takes a burden off the staff and is extremely efficient, with seamless integration to the back-office system, it fits right into their business day to day process. The large 32” high definition screen allows customers to really see the whole range clearly and easily type personal messages to be put on the cake.

Hardware Advantage: 32” HD screen with bonded projective capacitive touchscreen – this makes for much better customer feel when using the touch – many screens out there right now do not have this feature, so they feel as if you are touching through a shop window! Our screen feels like an IPAD and is great for quick and easy typing, which is needed for the special message the customer puts on the cake.
Software Advantage: seamless integration to the customers existing business processes. We even make the orders look exactly the way the staff are used to seeing them from the web and in stotre. We provided extra dashboard features so that Eggfree Cake Box can see all sales information at a local (for the franchisee) and head office view. Eggfree Cake Box can upload their own price changes and run special offers easily from head office.

Payment Kiosks buys KPR-Midlink assets
December 2021

KPR- Midlink decides to close and retire the business after running successfully for over 20 years. Payment Kiosks negotiated a purchase from the asset company representing the directors of KPR. 37 councils run KPR software and hardware in the UK. It is extremely well thought of with near 100% uptime – reliability being a major feature, that many companies can only dream of. 13 councils have kiosks that allow local residents to make payments such as council tax, parking fines, waste collection etc – actually over 100 funds! The remaining 24 councils runs MACCS2 software – this runs on kiosks and IPADS and allows council staff to collect rents from market traders - with many added features that save any council a great deal of time.
This kiosk hardware and software has been upgraded and refined over 20 years, and we believe it to be the best out there – that’s why we bought it!
It integrates with these income management systems: Capita, Adelante and CIVICA.

New client – Candy Box, Ahhh, the sweet smell of success!
July 2021

Candy Box is a brilliant new concept delivering specialist sweets and snacks to customers’ homes in the Brighton area.
Due to the success of this, Candy Box had a vision to open a number of stores. A proof of concept store was chosen and they began trading in April 2021, whereupon, it was realised that a self service kiosk that could take both cash and card for customers coming into the store would be a fabulous addition. The PK250 kiosk from Payment Kiosks was chosen as it could take both coin, notes and debit/credit card aswell as giving change. The 32” QHD touchscreen was essential for viewing all the products clearly. This was installed in July 2021 and has proved a great success.
