Kiosk Manufacturer Association

Welcome to KMA. We are a global, cause-based, not-for-profit organization focused on better self-service for customers and employees through kiosks and information technology (IT). The kiosk industry association leads efforts to optimize self-service engagements and engagement outcomes using information technology such as kiosks.

What we do –  we are people who make up the self-service industry who are interested in establishing and following common guidelines we all agree on for accessibility. We look to the U.S. Access Board  and also the European standards group for our baseline.
