Olea Kiosks is the original equipment manufacturer (OEM) for CLEAR, a membership-based service offering expedited security clearance through biometric technology. CLEAR has successfully installed over 2,000 kiosks, referred to as "pods," across more than 50 airports and 18 sports stadiums nationwide, facilitating over 130 million verified passenger clearances. The kiosks, called “pods”, engineered by Olea Kiosks, are equipped with a Microsoft Tablet serving as the touchscreen and central processing unit, augmented by a fingerprint scanner, an IRIS scanner for member identification, and a passport scanner for new member enrollment or secondary verification. The iconic pod design has become a benchmark in the biometric sector. In its role as an OEM partner, Olea has taken full responsibility for the design and hardware supply chain of the kiosks, enabling CLEAR to concentrate on its primary objectives: member acquisition, fostering strong partnerships, and expanding its operational footprint for sustained growth.
Idemia, a leader in developing advanced, secure solutions for seamless physical and digital interactions, serves over 600 governmental entities and 2,300+ corporate clients worldwide. Since 2010, Idemia has maintained a strong partnership with Olea Kiosks. The company sought a design and manufacturing collaborator to create an innovative kiosk system for the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). This kiosk, tailored for immigration processing, required features such as adjustable telescoping mechanisms, integrated fingerprint scanners, digital signature capture pads, and ergonomically designed keyboards and monitors. To date, Idemia has successfully deployed over 3,000 Olea kiosks, including more than 1,000 specifically for USCIS.
The Habit Burger Grill
The Habit Burger Grill, a fast-casual restaurant chain, began its digital transformation in 2018 to expedite order processing during peak dining periods. The chain wanted to augment its omnichannel capabilities through the integration of kiosks. Uniquely, The Habit developed its proprietary software, seamlessly integrating with its existing technology infrastructure, so they could source their own hardware vendor. This was driven by the desire for a unique design, aligning with the brand's visual identity. Key customizations included the omission of a printer, the necessity for a MagTek reader, brand-aligned color schemes, and the requirement for field-upgradable kiosks to accommodate future payment device updates, leading to their choice of Olea as the provider. The Habit now has more than 350 locations across 14 states and has deployed more than 1,100 kiosks. All new locations will be equipped with kiosks moving forward and by the end of 2024, all existing locations will have been outfitted with self-service kiosks.
Smarte Carte, the leading provider of self-serve vended luggage carts, electronic lockers, commercial strollers, and massage chairs, sought a collaborative partner in Olea for the design, procurement, and manufacturing of their kiosk-based solutions. This partnership was essential to Smarte Carte's focus on its primary business operations, requiring a partner who would invest the same level of care and precision in the kiosks as Smarte Carte does in its services. The company aimed to enhance the design and functionality of its self-service hardware to expand its brand presence. Key to this strategy was making the rental process more user-friendly and engaging. Smarte Carte envisaged an innovative solution incorporating monitors for improved customer interaction and additional communication opportunities. SmarteCarte has now deployed hundreds of the new Olea version of the kiosk, with additional units planned reflecting its commitment to elevating customer experience and service efficiency.
Shift4 Payments, a leading provider of payment processing solutions in the US, services over 200,000 businesses across the hospitality, retail, leisure, and restaurant sectors. In 2021, it acquired VenueNext, a point-of-sale and payment solutions provider for stadiums, arenas, and other entertainment venues. Shift4 deploys a high volume of kiosks for stadiums and needed a solution that was highly reliable and could be installed quickly and easily. While there are several low-cost off-the-shelf products on the market, they chose a customized product that arrived fully assembled so they could take it off the truck and plug it in. Understanding the dynamic nature of the payment industry, Shift4 sought a partner capable of accommodating ongoing innovations, such as integrating new pin pad brackets, and possessing the flexibility to evolve the product in tandem with the company's future growth. In 2023, Shift4 acquired Appetize, an Olea customer since 2018. Shift4 has approximately 1,500 Olea kiosks deployed via the VenueNext and Appetize brands.
Securiport, a US-based company, specializes in providing advanced border management and civil aviation security solutions to governments worldwide. The company, known for its intelligent immigration controls, developed an in-house kiosk design and sought a manufacturing partner for its self-service technology. However, the initial design posed technical and cost challenges for mass production. XXX took on the task of redesigning the kiosk, focusing on scalability and mass production feasibility. A key priority for XXX was to ensure low cost of ownership, emphasizing easy servicing and maintenance of the units. Additionally, during the design process, XXX paid close attention to ergonomic aspects of fingerprint, passport, and iris scanners to enhance user-friendliness and ensure efficient interaction.
Greyhound Lines provides intercity bus transportation services for 16 million passengers annually across North America. Faced with aging self-service kiosks nearing the end of their lifecycle and growing unreliability, and unsatisfactory customer service experiences with their previous supplier, Greyhound sought a new partnership for an upgrade. The company aimed for a non-proprietary, enhanced kiosk design and footprint. Olea recommended the Franklin model with specific modifications to meet Greyhound's requirements, including cash storage capacity, heightened security, and software compatibility. This design also offered Greyhound the opportunity to apply its branding to the kiosks, boosting brand visibility at each location. Partnering with Olea provided Greyhound with the necessary flexibility to continue to evolve the product as it upgraded its POS systems to maintain a consistent roll-out across its kiosk network, enhancing overall customer experience and operational efficiency across its depots nationwide.
