Self-service counter - ekz benelux

Self-service counter

Self-service devices are the library’s calling card: hence both the design and operation must be perfect.

Because the incorporation of self-service equipment is different for each library, ekz Benelux offers different models. These range from a solution consisting of individual components, which can be built into specific interiors, to freestanding kiosk models. The enclosures are supplied in black or black and white as standard, but can also be supplied in other colors to make them even more attractive. Furthermore, many configurations are possible (with/without barcode,- Mifare,- eID card reader) to suit exactly the intended use.

All devices run the itrack self-service suite.
