Hello, I wonder if anyone here has experiences with Self check-in Kiosk? I am thinking to invest in a self check-in machine to cut hiring staffs who often make me headache and sick. I wonder how much normally will be for one kiosk machine? I talked to one company and they asked for around $10,000USD. Not include shipping and tax. I hope to find a supplier in the USA but it seems like most of US suppliers do not really sell their products to small business. Does anyone have any suggestion on this?
My hostel can accommodate around 50-60 guests. We will be installing digital door locks in all bedrooms, entrance doors and offices in a few months. So when guests checks in, they can get their key card dispensed from the machine then they can enter to the room themselves. However, we will have staffs all days to assist guests when they need.
Do you think this idea is possible? And is it worth to invest $10K+ for it? I am leaning toward getting it because I also have other businesses. Besides I think this will help us save cost in the long run so we can improve our service in other area such as cleanliness and breakfast bar. However, it is a bit pricey.
Any advices would be appreciated. Thank you very much!!
