This article offers guidance on planning your check-in procedure: What is Kiosk Mode? [Planning and Testing]
These are your primary decision points:
- Number of people arriving in a 30-minute window of your event's start time - Typically, 70-80% of your attendees will arrive during this window. Be prepared in order to avoid long check-in lines. How do I determine how many kiosks I will need?
- Speed at which you need to check-in one person - General rule: self-check-in is slower than an attendant checking in attendees; scanning remotely is quickest, but has limitations; uploading a .CSV file involves the most steps. How do I test my kiosk set up?
- Cost of scan guns - They start at about $20 for a simple model (requires USB connection to an internet-enabled laptop/device).
- Square feet of the "entrance room" of your venue - Do you have floor space for a check-in table with a laptop and perhaps a badge printer?
