Features

Walk away operation
You can train your staff in less than an hour. Your APEX runs virtually unattended, freeing your employees to work with customers.  Employees can also set auto startup and shutdown times on a daily basis making the system even more automatic.

 

Less is more—a lot more
It’s so much easier for your staff to track one consumable SKU instead of some competitor’s six to eight. The material inventory costs are low, which is good news since reducing your stock-keeping costs is just a smarter way to use capital.

 

Go with the flow or direct it
Kodak lets you control production—when you need to. For example, choice of automatic or manual order release and the ability to dedicate printer(s) to your most pressing need delights both customers and staff.

 

Power where it’s needed
Kodak intelligent, shared image processing tools manage your kiosk workflow switching image rendering and other heavy processing tasks to an APEX Workstation—freeing up kiosks for the next customer.

 

Click, click—they pick them up the same day
Now you can direct online sales to your retail photo business. KODAK Net-to-Retail Solution allows your APEX to receive and manage orders directly from all categories of websites—including retailer.com, Pure Plays and other third parties.

Kodak provides legendary image quality and a lifetime of enjoyment. KODAK PERFECT TOUCH Technology consistently delivers more vibrant colors, richer detail and fewer dark shadows. Prints on KODAK XTRALIFE Paper are waterproof, wipeable, stain-resistant and will last a lifetime*.
*Under typical home display and storage conditions. Based on preliminary image performance testing data.

 

Support as smart as our Technology
We know working equipment is crucial to business. And we stand behind our products and solutions. Should a technical issue arise, you have the support of Kodak’s Service Personnel*
*Included only in Kodak Service Agreements.

 

Environmentally conscious footprint 
APEX uses 70 to 90% less energy than comparably sized AgX minilabs; consumes no chemicals and uses no water, saving an estimated 5,000 liters annually.1 In addition, the KODAK Picture Kiosk G4XE Order Station has 25% lower power usage compared to the previous model (G3)2, reducing carbon dioxide emissions by 157 kg per year.3 Overall, you can count on our systems to be efficient and intelligent in their use of media and consumables.
