It doesn’t matter how old you are, where you are in the world, throughout your life you will have used a vending machine to indulge yourself in your favourite snacks and drinks. However, as time moves on so has vending. So… now we know where we are with vending technology, what is this way of vending that is moving aside?

Bye, bye loose change

The traditional way of using a vending machine was to press some clunky buttons and root through your pockets to find some loose change. That thought won’t cross people’s minds anymore, people want to be able to do the one-step tap with their phone or debit card.

Yes, the world is becoming more digital that doesn’t mean physical cash will phase out anytime soon. It’s just the alternative way of paying is increasing in popularity.

Where can RSL go?

You are the reason we keep striving forward to develop new innovative solutions. The question is how can we do that? The foundation that RSL is built on is to help as many people as possible, constantly evolve to meet the modern demand, and bring high-quality vending solutions and refreshments to our customers. 

We will go where you allow us and continue to knock at the door with new technology and solutions with the hope that it will make your life beneficial.

In the end/conclusion

The original ways of doing things are what brought us into the future. Without those, the world could have looked so much different. Appreciate what was then and now knock on the door, step through, and see what will be.

Our customers are at the heart of everything that we do. If they are not achieving their goals then neither are we. Their satisfaction is very important to us and we believe that delivering what our customers want and need, means that we can form a long-lasting partnership.

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.

With the help of RSL, we now have a machine that meets demand, makes a delicious drink and is easy to use. We’re delighted with the service that we are now looking to add further machines to different areas on campus.

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.
