    The age of self serves kiosks is upon us and now more than ever developing and deploying retail kiosk software is a very sound business move and one that should definitely help you increase your sales volume. However, not all retail kiosks are equally successful, and one of the key elements that will direct the success or failure of the retail kiosk is the software used. Unless you are a developer yourself, then it is clear that the decision on the company to help you develop your retail kiosk software is one that should not be taken lightly. Below are 5 key factors that must be taken into consideration when making such a decision in order to ensure that you get the best software;

    Qualifications and experience; this is the first and, arguably, the most important factor to consider when choosing a company to develop your retail kiosk software. They must demonstrate that they are qualified and have both the skills and the ability to develop the kind of software that you need. You might want to take a look at their professional credentials before you let them start working for you.

    Experience; after you confirm that they are qualified, next investigate their experience in this field. Even though it seems unfair to dismiss the fresh experts who may be very qualified but do not have the experience you are looking for, you should remember that the purchase of the software and its deployment both represent a significant financial investment and you simply cannot afford to risk everything by placing the job on the shoulders of a rookie. An experienced company not only knows how to create the software that you need but is also familiar with the challenges and problems you are most likely to encounter while using the software. They are therefore, able to anticipate these and cover them in the development of the retail kiosk software.

    Portfolio; in this context, the portfolio represents the retail kiosk software that the company has developed for other clients in the past. This portfolio must be made up of the actual software that they have built and deployed. Closely examine as many of them as you can and see how functional they are. Only a company that has been able to successfully complete similar projects for other clients in the past can guarantee the successful completion of your own. In the same respect, you should read the testimonials from those clients to find out what they thought about the software that was built for them.

    Support; building or developing the retail kiosk software and its subsequent deployment are only part of the job, and you should procure the services of a company that understands and appreciates this fact. Look for a company that will be on hand to provide you with support in the maintenance of the software in the future. You don’t know all the adjustments that you might have to make to the software in the future and therefore, you should look for a company that is committed to helping you whenever such need arises.
