Smart Vending Solution
Smart solutions for purchasing products and services
The basic idea of a vending machine is usually a "machine selling coffee or bars", but the possibilities of the machines do not end there. Let's start with the fact that in today's world, machines sell not only food products, but also electronic gadgets, cosmetics, e-cigarettes, shoe protectors and many other products. However, if we realize that vending means the distribution of goods and services by means of machines, then we will expand the spectrum to include such devices as parking meters, ticket vending machines, parcel machines, self-service car washes, electric car chargers, photographic points, etc.
The world is moving towards process automation, and the development of the vending industry fits this trend perfectly.
Payments in self-service devices
Apart from market trends and the general increase in popularity of cashless payments in trade, the installation of payment terminals in vending machines leads to an increase in turnover (regardless of the industry). On the other hand, considering the specificity of the vending market, investment in payment terminals is a fairly expensive operation. And when we add rigid commissions to operators, the return on investment significantly shifts in time.
The Smart Vending solution is a partial remedy for these issues. It includes a reliable payment application for self-service terminals based on the Payment Gateway environment, thanks to which it is possible to adapt it to work on various hardware platforms, among others devices from manufacturers such as Ingenico and VeriFone.
This solution allows accepting cards of all systems (among others: Visa, MasterCard, Amex) and with all merchants in Poland. The devices can accept cards in all technologies: contactless, magnetic stripe and chip, as well as payments by BLIK, applePay or GPay.
The customer receives a complete solution tailored to the device together with the terminal management system (TMS), telemetry, a dedicated portal and technical support.
