Kiosk Industry Group

The Gokiosk group is organized to help support individuals and companies who are involved in the kiosk and self-service industry (or have been at some point).  If you are a member of LinkedIn then you can join the group if you have spent any serious time in the industry. That would go for someone who worked for Factura back in the 80s, or someone who worked for Target Corporation (people who bought and deployed kiosks from Factura originally).

The group has close to 1000 members and within that group is subset of noted management board members.

Here are the 2011 Kiosk Industry group mananagement board members.

  • Ron Bowers with Frank Maer

  • Lawrence Dvorchik with KioskCom
  • John Goodwin of NCR
  • Francie Mendelsohn of Summit Research
  • Marshall Millikan of AT&T
  • Sandra Nix of Connected Technology
  • Alex Richardson, founder of Lexitech
