Various payment methods

In addition to traditional cash payment forms, vending machines are also integrated with payment features via apps or e-wallets. This feature helps bring customers convenience and leads to a modern buying and selling form.


The vending machine is quite compact in size, does not take up too much space and makes it easy for you to move. With 24/7 automatic operation without management, you will easily place the machine in any location to provide the service.

Smart vending machines use real-time telemetry to check machine status

Comparing smart vending machines with previous basic models, if you want to check daily sales, you need to have staff directly come to the place where the machine is located. However, with a smart vending machine, just sitting at the office, employees can still monitor and remotely access daily business activities through telemetry. This is the most outstanding feature of smart vending machines, helping businesses to save a lot of time in the process of controlling revenue.

Smart vending machine brings an easy buying experience

Not only helping operators save time, but smart vending machines also help consumers save time in purchasing. In the past, when going on a trip or going to work, if consumers needed to buy a bottle of beverage or fast food, they had to go to stores or supermarkets, which took a lot of time. However, with the development of intelligent vending machines with a chain of systems located everywhere, in crowded places in big cities, the need to buy soft drinks, and fast food, .. User response is quick. Moreover, the shopping experience through smart vending machines gives users a new and easier feeling than buying at grocery stores and supermarkets.

In addition to an easy shopping experience, users can also experience other services such as top-up/buy phone scratch cards, scan QR codes and pay via e-wallets. Therefore, smart vending machines have met and are suitable for all customers.

Easy to manage

Vending machines operate automatically 24 hours in 365 days, so you do not need to spend a lot of time managing and operating them. You just need to schedule the maintenance and restocking of the machine every week.

This task will not take too much time, and you can also hire the services of another unit to do it for you. That way, your machine will be well taken care of and always full of goods, and you will save a lot of time focusing on your main work.

At the same time, you will easily monitor the operation of the machine through the integrated management software on a computer or smartphone. This feature makes it convenient for you to manage revenue, goods, and advertising

Cost savings

For consumers, a vending machine will provide you with essential products and list prices, so you will not lose any additional costs and buy goods at the right price without worrying about being ripped off like in a shop.

In conclusion

Vending machines are in a race to prove that they’re the most convenient, technological powered machines on the market. There are no stopping future technologies, which means there is no slowing down the power of the modern vending machine.

I would recommend Refreshment Systems to any car dealership that is looking to enhance their customer experience with a high quality drink offering of bean to cup. We have worked with them for a number of years and installed a new machine last year which we could not be happier with.

I think the most important advantage RSL had over other potential suppliers was the use of the mobile drinks van. We knew we were getting quality before we switched suppliers!
