CUSS – Common Use Self-Service

Materna IPS kiosk and self-bag drop systems are based on the international Common Use Self-Service (CUSS, IATA RP 1706c) standard 

IPS Passenger provides a runtime environment with standardized interfaces to access and control peripheral devices in a kiosk. CUSS is a solution both for airlines and airports where airlines can use a single application to offer self-service check-in, bag tag printing and baggage drop off

in their dedicated environments, e.g. at their hubs, and in shared environments where the business case would not justify proprietary installations.  Materna IPS is well-known for in-house developed IPS CUSS platform and CUSS applications. Over the years the IPS CUSS platform has been integrated on hardware from IER, NCR and EMBROSS and IPS CUSS applications have proven their flexibility and reliability in many kiosk and self-bag drop installations worldwide.
