Turning black and grey machines into sleek and chic brand displays have a lot of tangible and intangible benefits. Branded machines attract more users for the machine, driving revenue from each machine. Consumers also feel pride in being associated with the brands of the institutions using branded machines.

Cashless and Cutting Edge
If there is one aspect that COVID-19 has accelerated in today’s retail environment, it is the need for contactless and cashless transactions. Vending machines are no exceptions.

But the benefits do not end there. With the cellular-based card reader enabled machines, you can get much more. Here, the transactions can be monitored remotely.

This places the power of real-time intelligence in your mobile phone or desktop enabling faster and more accurate business decisions.

Be it the CFC-Free R134a modular refrigeration system or the LED lighting systems, the sub-systems are energy efficient. This also translates to lower cost of ownership for the owners and operators. During the manufacturing, recycling of the wash-water and electronically controlled paint spraying combined with reclamation of excess paint for reuse are all steps that make the machine eco-friendly. While environmental responsibility is the ultimate objective, the monetary benefits are just a happy side-effect.

From merchandise types to ergonomics, accessibility, compliance and efficiency, local knowledge is weaved into all aspects of design and manufacturing of the machines. This ensures the ultimate user experience and convenience.
