        YVR has been the leading automated passport kiosk deployer for many years. For that matter airport terminals  have been the domain of Canada for many many years. Why that is, is a mystery but it is a fact. Some of the early original airline check-in kiosks were designed and implemented by Wilf Medweth of IBM Kiosk Toronto Markham (and there is SITA…). We personally worked on the Northwest Airlines check-in kiosk (built by NWA) which we tested originally in the food commissary of  Ford Motor in Detroit.

        Airlines terminals and ATMs and Photo Kiosks (Kodak) were the Big Three to kick off Self-Service and the american consumer.  Link to entire interview.

It’s not all about airline check-in systems. Web and self-service kiosk check-in are pervasive with mobile quickly catching up. We work with the world’s leading airlines to leverage their self-service investment by extending the functionality of each channel beyond the airline check-in systems.
