The secret weapon to vending machines
Could you walk into a business and not come across a vending machine? It’s almost a guarantee that there is a vending machine around the corner from you. However, in some cases, there are multiple machines in one place. For example, the usual 3 are a hot drink, cold drinks and a snack machine. When it comes to facilities managers or the healthcare sector, how do they manage all their vending machines? There’s so much other work to be done, it almost seems impossible to keep them maintained.
The answer is the secret weapon – telemetry
Is telemetry a myth?
Telemetry is not a myth. You can buy telemetry straight from the shelf, but that doesn’t mean you can use it to the extent that we do. We implemented this technology in 2020 and there was a lot of work that went into making it a valuable asset to our company.
Does telemetry work?
This technology is a powerful tool, all our machines are using telemetry. Our customers don’t manage their machines, because… they simply can’t. They’re so much work going into keeping a vending machine running daily. Telemetry does work, it allows us to know the status of 1000+ machines by sitting behind a desk. This is why our machines are always stocked to optimum levels. If an issue occurs, we will know before you and one of our engineers will be out of that machine.
Do I need telemetry?
Telemetry comes as standard, meaning you never have to worry about the vending machine. The last thing on your mind is keeping up with the maintenance of your machine when you have a million and one things to do.
Benefits of telemetry?
- Machines stocked to optimum levels – with telemetry led route planning
- Remote fault tracking – so that an engineer or operative is onsite quickly to solve any issues and keep downtime to a minimum
- Payment Technology – the latest in payment technology on all machines to increase sales and offer valuable sales data
We will continue to improve our telemetry which means the user experience will keep evolving. This technology is here to stay and if we can keep developing the tech and helping people, then that’s a job well done.
