ACRELEC’s K27 self-service kiosk and Glory’s CI-Hybrid 15 payment station has been a game-changer for us. This solution helped us improve the customer experience and increased our sales by offering a better speed of service. It’s also more hygienic as staff aren’t touching the cash anymore.Karim Zigheche, Managing Director - BIM’S
BIM’S is a fast-food restaurant chain located in London, offering a variety of food, from burgers and salads to vegetarian options. They specialize in halal fast grilled burgers. Launched in 2018 BIM’S is located in London in the areas of Edmonton and Ilford.
When planning for the opening of BIM’S second restaurant, Managing Director Karim wanted to invest in technology that would improve the customer journey and deliver efficiency gains. It was also important for BIM’S to offer their customers choices in how they would like to be served and pay for their orders.
Like every other restaurant owner, the hygiene implications of staff handling both products and cash were uppermost in the mind of BIM’S. The combination of handling food and payment transactions could be burdensome, and Karim wanted to address this issue through automation technology. It became clear to Karim that they should install self-service solutions in the new restaurant to attract customers and provide the best customer experience possible.
The K27 kiosk is built to fit the look and feel of any business and seamlessly integrates with the CI-Hybrid 15 to increase efficiency and enhance security. An HD display delivers the very best viewing experience for customers while basic transactions are handled and processed at the payment station enabling staff to focus on added-value activities and reducing queues. The latest payment systems & scanner technologies by ACRELEC and Glory make cashless payments like Apple Pay, Google Pay, WeChat, etc. easy. Loyalty programs can be managed via the barcode scanner.
With ACRELEC and Glory’s expertise, Karim and his team knew they could achieve expanding their franchise business opportunity further by offering a compact, flexible, and efficient solution to their franchisees.

- Enhanced customer experience: the self-service kiosk reduces long queues at busy times and delivers faster transactions.
- Payment choice for customers: customers can pay by cash or card resulting in 25% more sales at the self-service kiosks than at the main till area plus a 25% increase in cash transactions.
