How to Use Kiosk Mode to Collect Customer Feedback?

  • January 2, 2023

Surveys are an excellent way for organizations to collect customer feedback. Customer surveys allow brands to measure customer satisfaction, identify areas of improvement, or allow annoyed clients to vent their frustrations. Several kinds of survey methods help brands collect different types of information or insights they seek, from paper-based surveys to online surveys.

Collect Customer Feedback and Reviews with Kiosk Mode

But customers often complain of survey fatigue. A common belief is that survey fatigue is driven by the number of requests to complete a survey. Collecting surveys when customers interact with brands at the point of purchase using survey kiosks can increase survey participation and get customers to respond more favorably.

What is a Kiosk Survey?

A kiosk survey is deployed on touchscreen kiosk devices for customers to act on. Kiosk surveys aim to collect feedback immediately after a customer has interacted with the brand.

Benefits of Kiosk Survey

  • No pressure on customers. Kiosk surveys are a passive experience. A big benefit here is that kiosk surveys reduce the need for person-to-person interaction. Companies should be mindful to keep the survey detailed but easy enough to not require any in-person support.
  • High volume of responses. Kiosks get high-volume feedback from customers. They can use kiosks to fill out survey forms while waiting for an order at a quick-service restaurant or while shopping at a retail store. By the time the staff at the billing counter process the customer’s invoice, companies can take this opportunity to collect feedback, when the in-store experience is fresh in the customers’ minds.
  • Easy Implementation. Kiosks are easy to implement and maintain. These passive devices are connected to the internet to dispatch regular software updates and hardware alerts. Kiosk surveys can be replaced or updated remotely by the IT staff.
