Freeosk is an automated free sample kiosk that does away with in-person interactions, allowing people to receive packaged goods by swiping a loyalty card or scanning the Freeosk iPhone app. Data is gathered on who tried what sample, informing brands whether customers purchased that item later on.
Freeosk, which is set to launch next month, features shelves of products, a scanner and high-definition touchscreen. It integrates with retailer membership or loyalty card services, enabling brands to see the impact of their free samples.
Freeosk offers customers the chance to try new products for free, while also providing an eye-catching in-store display for brands. Fast Company reports that the kiosks are paid for by the brands, not the stores and the supplier will also be charged a “programming fee” to pay for the running and replenishment of the kiosks.
