In an effort to improve customer service, the Clayton County Tag Office has installed a self-service kiosk. This will add to the efficiency & effectiveness and service to the public. Now, customers can check in at the kiosk, take a number, and be seated instead of standing and waiting to be served.

 

We’ll also be able to better determine how many customers are being served and how long each transaction is taking. Additionally, this will assist with properly training employees to ensure less wait times and service times.
