As we are more than halfway through 2021, where else can vending machines go? Over the past two months, we have discussed the history of vending machines, how telemetry plays a part and how vending machines are taking a step into luxury through our blogs. It’s no wonder that many businesses find that vending machines are a great benefactor for workplace satisfaction.

We now find vending machines taking another step, helping companies like Coca-Cola, Pepsi, Cadbury and Yorkshire Tea advertise their products via media screens

Reach the right people

Companies can gain brand exposure through advertising via vending media screens. They can be used to showcase images and videos of your products or services through an HD screen.

Our machines are placed in high footfall areas including workplaces, universities, colleges and in hospitals where we have machines in over ten trusts. A typical media screen campaign across our entire machine locations gives you a reach of over 6 million views over six months. With these touch screen capabilities, the entire experience becomes immersive and fun for the user.

Also, it may be worth taking into account that more people will see the advert on a vending machine compared to a billboard. You’re not going to stop driving to look at a billboard.

Personalise your screens

Media screens don’t have to be used for just advertising external companies products. Personalise your screens with your branding, like you would do if you have a vending surround. Instead of sending emails to your employees with information regarding health and safety, you can create a loop of information and upload them to the media screen. This way the information is going to reach more people whilst they wait for their coffee or snacks to be dispensed.

In conclusion 

This technology gives the vending industry many possibilities of creating a network of advertising, company information and other means of presenting information to consumers.

We’ve been using RSL now for well over 10 years. In a highly competitive market they have always maintained top quality products and service. Professional, innovative and reliable but with a personal friendly touch, I would have no hesitation in recommending their services.

Keoghs Solicitors

We approached RSL after finding out that they could supply the Vitro coffee machines (which we wanted in our new offices). They were able to offer us the best solution to meet our needs. We are so happy with the service that we have received so far, that we are looking to use them in some of our other sites.

Virgin Money

We can’t thank the team enough, from helping us with the colour schemes to menu boards and point of sale materials, they have just been brilliant!
