Latest KDS Magazine

Over the past few months, we’ve been busy working on fantastic new design and branding for Kiosk Solutions.

We’ve listened to our readers, our contributors, and our advertisers and are incorporating the complementary markets of digital signage and wayfinding into our magazine. To reflect this change we now have a new look and a new name: Kiosk and Digital Signage (KDS) magazine.

We also have a brand new website (www.kdseurope.com)! Working closely with the magazine team, the online crew continues to bring you the most interesting news and informative features from our fabulous contributors, across all of our media channels, whether online or offline.

While we may look a little different, you can be sure that we remain committed to pursuing the latest industry-relevant commentary, thought-leadership and challenging articles.

We have some great features in our first rebranded issue of KDS, however, the Covid-19 pandemic persists in concerning us all. Looking at retail, James Bristow of Cradlepoint considers the possibility that changes in consumer behaviour may linger even when lockdowns and social distancing are a thing of the past, while John Tait of TNS Payments Market, looks at ways of enhancing the customer experience to stand out from competitors.

The physical distancing that Covid-19 has enforced on our lives means that we have had time to embrace alternative training techniques. Andrew Richardson, Mediaworks, looks at virtual learning and whether it will continue post-Covid.

As we go the print the the UK’s Prime Minister has announced the 4 Stage plan to exit lockdown. His plan offers us the potential to stage KDS 2021 at the end of the year. We are excited by the prospect and have already received some early support from the market. We are presently working with the venue and their health and safety teams and will announce next steps as soon as we are able.

I hope you enjoy this first issue of KDS. Drop me an email at editor@kdseurope.com – I’d love to hear your thoughts and get your feedback on our new look magazine and website.

We look forward to hearing from you.
