How technology is shaping the world of vending
These days the world of vending is synonymous with technology that breaths innovation. But how has the evolution of artificial intelligence managed to bring outdated vending machines into the modern-day?
Like RSL and many other industries where the involvement of AI has taken centre stage, this cycle of tech evolution that we are all in will continue to grow. Meaning the vending industry can take a front-row seat as the technology used will sweep through the market to meet the modern demand of consumers with their digital mindsets.
Although tech plays a pivotal role in the vending world it’s relevant to say, which technologies are taking on that role? On which machines? And how are they being used to make peoples life easier?
That is where the implementation of telemetry comes in, with the added involvement of our next-generation machines.
Telemetry is on a whole new level as it can track stock levels, machine errors and improve efficiency. We are using this technology to help us know when industries like healthcare, facilities management, hospitality need more coffee beans or snacks. Telemetry has enabled us to do that, so those industries never have to worry.
Telemetry is already among us, but it’s still an exciting prospect of what is to come in terms of what it will be able to do next. This small piece of tech can provide so much. However, you want next-generation machines capable of using telemetry to provide you with everything that particular technology can do.
No more commuting to the corner shop for an overpriced chocolate bar, our modern machines with the added touch of vending surrounds allows you to relax and enjoy a well-deserved break.
Take a step into the future and choose from a range of machines:
As you learn more about vending machines, you will know that they have moved past the traditional way of users paying for a snack. A whole library of possibilities has opened up, and cash is not needed anymore when you have access to other technologies. Again, it is this constant cycle of tech evolution that we are all in. We now have advantages of Apple Pay, Facial Recognition and apps. These payment methods may encourage people to make a purchase instead of searching for some loose change that they may not have.
Telemetry is not the only feature that will blow your mind. Some of our modern vending machines now come with media screens where companies such as Coka-Cola, Cadbury and Pepsi can advertise on them. A whole new customer experience has opened up, which is another step into the future of what vending machines can do.
In summary: Technology is a game-changer
There is so much room for innovation in the vending industry. With a bright future on the rise, now is the time to be excited.
