Are US postal kiosks facing a usage crisis?
The U.S. Postal Service Office of Inspector General released an audit report in February 2014 that detailed problems facing the nation’s fleet of more than 2,500 self-service postal kiosks. At the center of the report, the OIG found that the kiosks were not being used as anticipated, and an outreach plan was recommended to boost the kiosk’s role within postal locations.
The USPS kiosks are designed to process 80 percent of those transactions normally handled by a window employee at a retail postal service facility, according to the audit. As of June 2013, the performance rate of the kiosks was 26.11, below the nationwide customer adoption percentage target of 35 percent.
