Our company was founded in order to specifically address what we feel can be the most frustrating aspect of kiosk implementation within a business: differing vendors for hardware, software, integration, delivery, installation, and ongoing maintenance. We at TurnKey Kiosks have successfully merged all of these aspects of kiosk implementation within our company in order to ensure that our exceptional quality standards are met every step of the way.
