Here we have some nice, normal Redbox news for a change.
Redbox VP Gary Cohen has announced that they are working on ways to speed up their kiosks, including faster disc vending and allowing customers to return DVDs while others are browsing for movies.
The “quickreturn” feature is one many have been asking for months (years?) here on Inside Redbox, and it looks like Redbox is listening.
“We will be testing quickreturn at hundreds of redbox retail locations nationwide this year,” Cohen said. “Quickreturn will allow customers to make returns while other customers are browsing films and making movie selections.”
For many, this has been a long time coming. Hopefully they will work this system out sooner-than-later and get it rolled out to all 17,500 plus kiosks Redbox now has across the country.
So, with speedier rentals and returns out of the way, what is the next thing Redbox should work on?
