How to set up check-in kiosks
Every Rentle account comes with the possibility to use in-store check-in kiosks. To set up check-in kiosks, you only need devices with an Internet connection.
The check-in kiosk runs in an Internet browser, just like any website. The interface is designed for a tablet, but it also works with a computer or smartphone. Hence, during the busier days, when a queue starts to form behind the check-in kiosks, you can instruct your customers to use their own smartphones to check-in, for instance, by writing the check-in kiosk URL somewhere visible near the tablets.
The purpose of the in-store check-in kiosk is to allow your customers to check-in independently. This is extremely handy in busier rental shops, such as ski shops. Check-in kiosks not only speed up your customer service but also save your team's time.
Setting up the check-in kiosks
Choosing how many check-in kiosks you should have is entirely up to you. Rentle doesn't limit the number of check-in kiosks you can have in your store. To add a new check-in kiosk, visit your local electronics dealer and buy a new device.
You can find the check-in kiosk URL from your Settings > Channels. Scroll down to the Check-in section, type the URL to your check-in kiosk device's browser, and that's it. To avoid your customers starting to surf the Internet with your check-in kiosk, you should set it in the kiosk mode.
Your check-in kiosk URLs are always in the form: https://store.rentle.shop/your_mainurl/your_location
NOTE: Different store locations have unique URLs. Make sure you type the right location's URL in the browser.
